Overall, the house still feels incomplete. A big reason for that is that we still need to buy a dining table. Remember our rule about not buying anything unless we love it? Well guess what table we love? Why, a restoration hardware table of course! And we almost had all the money saved (another rule is we cannot put anything on credit) and our car broke down and is finally running after a $2,000 fix. Such is life. The reason we want that table is that restoration hardware seems to have the only 108" tables we can find that don't "look" extended at that length. With all the other tables we have found, they must be extended to reach that length which creates lines we don't like. Have I mentioned we are picky.. yeah... it is a good thing and a bad thing.

We do have our lovely blue barstools on the island but it feels hard to invite many people over lacking a table. I feel like it will be about 2 years before this house is fully decorated!

So that is part of the reason I have yet to take too many pictures of the house, I am such a visual perfectionist and it doesn't feel "ready" yet. Man, I have issues! But I WILL do a kitchen post soon because the kitchen is finally done! My husband wanted to add some trim under the cabinets and life got in the way for a few months before he could do that. If I don't do a kitchen post, please feel free to email me angry messages! :)

Anyway, I do have some cute pictures of my girls and our first Christmas in the house!

 The house is AMAZING for entertaining family! Will be better with a table :)

 See that space behind Elle? That is the empty table space. But the island works great for gingerbread house building!

 Also, note, nothing on the walls! I am so picky about printing pictures!

 We got antique doll beds for the girls and my husband painted them.


  1. Décor will come! We decorated our home with a lot of antiques, we wanted things that were unique and had a history. Slowly, our house came together and every piece had the added bonus of the story of how we found it. We also do not have a dining table we love (just a small 4-seater from Shopko)!

Home is where we live in; love and peace are the main dwellers of our home. A mere building cannot make a home. It must be beautiful and lively. Such homes defenitely attract one's attention. Thereby they start loving their homes and will become part of one's life. real estate in guruvayoor
