I’m feeling like I’m in a bit of a creativity rut right now, mostly due to my frenzied cleaning and the mountains of laundry I’ve been washing the past few days. Plus potty training a certain little blonde-haired boy who keeps peeing right through his undies (it’s not going well).

So I thought I’d just share some photos from around the house.

My summer mantle…I’m working on a painting that I think I’m going to put over the mantle – so excited to see how it turns out.

I found this lamp at Goodwill and just loved the shape of it. The shade is from Target.

I hung a bunch of old mirrors and picture frames up the staircase. I’m a little obsessed with mirrors right now.

I love this window seat in the kitchen. It’s where the kids and guests hang out while I’m getting dinner ready, and there is loads of storage in the drawers below. I made the striped pillow from an Ikea rug.

This is the office/playroom. It’s always a work-in-progress. I want it to be a fun space for the kids to play and be creative. They spend a lot of time in here. I hung an old ladder from the ceiling and have tissue paper pom poms hanging from it.

Happy Wednesday friends!
