When a House Becomes a Home

So after yesterday's rant about the nursery of toxic waste, I've decided that I don't really hate the money pit.  Although, it really is a money suck...every time you try to fix something, you discover another insane thing that needs to be fixed first.  But slowly but surely this is turning from a house into a home.

There's still a lot of work to be done, both cosmetically and decoratively, but the more we live here the more we grow into it.

Like the dance parties that we have nightly in our "formal living room" and the family dinners that we have every night at the table.  It's the coloring book and crayons splayed across the floor in the basement and the peals of laughter that echo through the halls.  It's the constant flow of people in and out, that makes the house more than four walls with questionable plumbing, but a home.

It's a place we can grow our family in and that's really all we've ever wanted.

Isabella's room is lovely! Hey and as long as you like the people you share your house with you are in the right place.

Oh, beautiful room! My daughter is also kinda a Bella. Her middle name is Bella. We thought about Isabella too because it's so beautiful, but Bella was my favorite grandmother's name so we kept it as is. Love!

Her room is beautiful! It's the family inside the walls that make a house a home!

So pretty! I love what you've done, especially your daughter's room.

Stopping by from SITS!

So pretty! I've been in my home for 2 years almost and it is JUST now turning into more of a home! I love the bedding on your bed! Black, yellow, and gray is one of my favorite combinations.
