Little things that make me happy in my home.

I have not blogged for ages! All my good intentions have gone down the drain but still I am here, reading all my favourite blogs and adding several more to my list. One of my dreams, as stated already on my blog is to get my home in a Home magazine. How funny that people dream of winning the lottery, getting a movie role, becoming a famous sports star but my dream as silly as it may be, is to have my house in a magazine.
There is nothing more I love than reading when a fellow blogger actually achieves this dream. I feel so excited for them and just want to know everything. I know A-M had a photo shoot recently and she compared it to like getting married again....I feel exactly the same way LOL
However, I have such a long way to go as the house is fairly empty so not much to take pics of except for white walls and a nice kitchen. Still, this is my dream and slowly I am adding small bits to the house that really just make me smile and happy...after all, that is what its really about! what do I love at the darling little boys room of course! I added a really nice wall decal to my son's room and with minimal $$'s it really makes his entrance so cute.

Wall decal for my son's room.

So what else makes me happy when I walk into a ensuite! I have set up all my beautiful soaps from MOR and the smell just is gorgeous. I love looking at this small space in my home and yes, it is always kept this neat and clean. Its like a retreat for me, somewhere I can escape and take a breather for a minute. With 3 boys, a girl needs somewhere to hide and be girly!

Last of all, my bedroom. Just a simple crisp white cover and the doors open to allow the breeze in. It is also a lovely retreat. This bedroom will also be the first room to be transformed as on Wednesday I am selecting the wallpaper for the back wall. Everything takes time and I am not rushing out to buy any furniture until I see something that I love.

So nothing has changed much, just waiting for the rooms to be transformed into how I had always imagined them to be. At least I am having fun just dreaming.....

So happy to see you! I am loving the new touches you have added. I think your home will def be in a mag one day, that's for sure. Good on you for working towards this! xx

Oh Mrs B, you will achieve your dream. Your little boys room is gorgeous (love the decal) and your bathroom is a dream. I too adore Mor soaps! There is quote by Goethe that I have hanging above my desk that goes like this: "Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it."
You have begun. A-M xx

I have the exact same dream, to have my house or a room in my house published in a home decor magazine. So of course, I don't think it's a silly dream at all!! :-)

We just finished our kitchen makeover (come by and check it out!!), and I'm working on the laundry room and dining room. Maybe one of them will be magazine-worthy :-)

Love what you did in your son's bedroom. The owl decal is adorable!! And your ensuite looks fantastic :-)

I'm sure you'll achieve your dream one day soon -- your house is fabulous!!

It all takes time to put together, Mrs B, but I love what you've done so far.

I'm plodding along very slowly too. If only cash was as plentiful as ideas. ;o)
