It was Thanksgiving morning when I took these pictures so the house is kind of a mess. Well that really only explains the mess in the kitchen, everywhere else is just....everyday "I live here" mess I guess you could say...so there was no tidying up before the pictures. In the past month we got a lot of furniture to fill up the house. A family friend was cleaning out her in laws house and kindly let us take home a bunch of furniture, I think that really helped fill the space! Here are some snapshots of our new home in South Georgia... the picture quality isn't that great, sorry.
This is the formal living room. When we first moved in we hardly had any furniture to go in here, just a couple chairs and the bookcases.
The wall to the left is all windows all the way down.
One of my favorite corners in the house. I love my little terrarium aquarium!
The green chair was Jeremy's grandfathers, it was in the back of their jewelry store and that's where he use to always sit. The orange lamp and the brass lamp (to the left -there are 2 on both sides of the couch) we got at an antique store. Pouf from World Market. The chest was Jeremy's parents.
I have yet to figure out how i want to do this mantle...so this is just kinda random stuff up there.
We had brought in a couple plants from outside too.
Living room, Entry hall, Dining room
(that's a hall closet with the curtains. None of the closets had doors so I either put up a shower curtain or window curtains to cover it up)
from the front door
The dining room was practically empty until the other week when we got a bunch of stuff from our friends.
Four new (to us) chairs, cabinet in the corner, and the dresser.
Jeremy also keeps his keyboard to the right, which is another wall of windows.
walking into the kitchen.
We got this table from an antique store for a really good deal.
We had been searching for one and all the one we were seeing were either really nice and expensive, or not nice and expensive.
Little cheese ball over there...
I bought curtains to cover the shelves, but I didn't like the way it looked. It kinda made the space look smaller.
where Rose gets her baths since the tub is chipping
Rose's room was quite a mess!
we usually have a cover on the pad but it was being washed ;)
Here is where we spend most of our time...the den.
back door to carport and laundry.
Ziva's bed....but Rose also sometimes plays in it (poor Ziva)
some random plastic eggs over there and a whoopee cushion.
Jeremy playing in the fire pit,
Ziva out there too.
We had a fire in there the other week when our heater wasn't working and it still smells like burned wood in there
Lots of windows in this house!!
Ziva howling at the smoke ;)
So that's our home!
Well except our room, which still has boxes and clothes everywhere and also a guest bedroom/office. Maybe when those rooms are a bit more put together i'll do another updated post.
For the most part though i'm really pleased with how things are shaping up and I'm looking forward to decorating for Christmas!
Hoping to get our tree this weekend!
