My photo
Welcome! My name is Mrs.G and I started this blog so people could share in my mis-adventures in wedding planning. I married my southern gentleman on September 6th, 2009. Throughout our courtship I became enamored with everything southern and desperately want to become a steel magnolia.

Home sweet home

I have been day dreaming a lot lately.

The subject of said day dreams is a house.

The prospect of buying a house is not in my immediate future but in the future, I keep looking at real estate websites and literally sit for hours looking at houses. They aren't even extravagant houses either, they are houses that are very obtainable for little ole Mrs. G.

I think of how I would decorate it, I have never really had a design sense, if I liked it I bought it and didn't care if it all went together but as I am getting older and now have my own home my ideas are evolving.
I look at these homes and picture where the Christmas tree would go, what color would I paint the walls, what would I change if anything.

I have even started purchasing homes decor catalogs in the checkout line.

It has really become all consuming.

I even found a house... well it is a shell of a house (it doesn't even have dry wall). When I laid eyes on this house I didn't run away in fear, oh no, I saw possibilities. I am so picky about everything that I saw this as a blank canvas.

When I see this house I see the faded green paint being chipped away and covered by a deep slate blue, I see the white trim popping against the new dark hue.
I see this bathroom

becoming this....

keeping the claw foot tub of course.

I see this quaint kitchen

Becoming a culinary masterpiece
