My latest thrift store find. An antique jewelry box for two dollars!
The shelf in our teeny guestroom with some of my favorite books and vases gifted by Ash, Lorraine & Mary Grace!
John Shea's nursery from Okinawa, from this post. His room in our house now has a different rug and is about a third the size, so we lovingly call it the lamb cave ;)
The last time I posted a photo of this side table, he could barely reach the drawers, now look at him!! Thankfully, he has zero interest in what's on the tabletop (like those bottles of alcohol) unless Daddy leaves out a tool, then he's all over it!
I love our home! I think in the age of social media, and even just in general, it's easy to forget how blessed we are and how incredibly much we're given moment to moment. Hearing Mika (my Bosnian Grandmother, hi sena!!) tell us stories over Christmas about how she grew up and how our parents grew up so differently than we did was a great reminder that we are so very spoiled. I am so thankful for all the Lord has done for us and given us! We may not be homeowners yet, and probably won't be for a good while during our gypsy lifestyle we love, but He always provides a beautiful home for us and the freedom and originality to make it our own, a place we truly love being in, which is what I think interior decorating is all about, right? It is so much fun turning a house into a home with each of our moves, even though I clearly know next to nothing about interior design. It's something I'd love to learn more about and hopefully will get to while in Europe. I do know what I'm drawn to, though! : soft colors, comfort, simple, fresh, classic, finding things from our travels, antique and thrift stores, garage sales and my guilty pleasures, Pottery Barn and Anthropologie. Welcome to our home in Monterey!
(I don't think I ever did a post like this while we were in Okinawa, but a lot of our apartment can be seen here.)
