An In Progress Home Tour: Kids' Bath

As you can see, a nine year old little girl used to live in our house. We are so grateful that our boys have their own bathroom, but let's just say, it needs a little de-girling. Of course they are 4 and 2 and don't really care, but I am not too crazy about the purple wallpaper in here. The mirror is really gorgeous and there is a nice glass enclosed shower. Certainly I wish there were a tub, but for now it's fine. 
We have lots of other projects that fall before this one, but at some point I see something more like this? I love the map wallpaper for a little boys' bath, plus it would tie in with the tile of the existing shower. 

But for now, here's how she looks!!

A Trip To Abbott's Lobster in the Rough

Hi readers!! My family and I are back from a three and a half week trip up North. I am so exhausted today and have TONS to do, but my heart is so full of love and happiness from all the people we got to see on our trip. I have so much to share about our journey, but in the mean time, today I'll share a great little spot that screams New England that we ate at during our stay. My in laws have a beach house in Niantic, Connecticut and we often travel into Mystic which is about 15 minutes away. On this day we drove about 2 miles further into Noank and ate at the most adorable spot called Abbott's. People, this is why I love New England. Here's a look at our stop!

An In Progress Home Tour: Devon's Room

Happy Friday friends! Here's a sneak peak at my oldest son's room. I plan to make a reclaimed wood headboard and need to create a play area on one side of the room. You can see in the last picture that his toys are just shoves there and the wall is essentially blank! I am having a hard time deciding how to create a functional play area for him and his toys. Hopefully I'll get the little area done soon and share it with you! I'll be back a little later to share my resources for his room. I am working away on my tiny iPhone this morning, so creating links is a challenge!
