Home at last...

We're back from our Florida vacation...much tanner than we are in this picture (this is only day two of the eight day trip). I'm sorry to say, for those of you looking for a "Trash to Treasure" post it won't be happening this week...I've been much too busy with 784 loads of vacation laundry and trying to get myself back in the swing of sitting at a desk for 8 hours a day to even think about a trash to treasure project. Hopefully next week???
Another reason for my lack of a trash to treasure project is that I've got this uncontrollable need to re-decorate my house. I'm hanging new curtains in the family room (which means plastering holes and dragging the paint out to retouch the repairs), I'm replacing all the rugs by all the doors, I'm painting furniture, re-arranging furniture... AND...I'm driving the hubby nuts! The biggest problem I've run into is finding a rug I like for the front entry way...I've got piles of them here that now need to be returned to their respective stores because they didn't work out for one reason or another. Anyone got any good ideas where to get an informal shabby sort of rug for an entry way?
I'll be posting more pictures this week of my journal (and yes, I actually journaled daily, surprise, surprise!) and of the fabulous shells we found on Honeymoon Island...you know, shells really stink...even the ones without the little critters. We've got all of ours soaking in a bucket of bleach. Can't wait to get them all cleaned up!
That's all I've got for now...vacation was absolutely fabulous but it's soooo nice to be back home!

Go with the urge to splurge on decorating! We're all about it.

Nice photo! Matt looks like a true tourist. Are you making the new curtains that you're putting up? Where do you find the time??!!
