changing things up

The other day I got the urge to re-arrange my bookcases in the living room.
Suddenly everything was down off the shelves and scattered all over the floor-- and the kids are running around creating a major mess.

Please tell me I'm not the only one who finds themselves in this situation on a regular basis.

Thank goodness my sister was around... she organized my books by color and size and then helped me put it all back together.  I was loving the way it looked in the morning light today so I whipped out my camera and snapped a few...



Don't let these perfect pictures fool you... behind the scenes there was a whole lot of horsing around going on...


That little white elephant I scooped up at a thrift store a few months ago finally found it's perfect home. Makes me smile.


I got the urge to have a little fun in the entryway.  A couple weeks ago I found a whole stack of vintage-y landscape paintings and pictures at a thrift store-- $20 later the entryway feels a lot more fun and summer-like.


The lifejackets have really been hanging there all summer-- not staged.  I promise.


Anyhow-- I've been loving how "summer-y" the house has been feeling lately.  Hard to believe that fall is fast approaching!!

Love your staging! Isn't it so fun? And yes, can totally relate to the horsin' around stuff. I've gotta get crackin' on our bookcases in our family room. Actually the whole room needs a total overhaul. Wanna come to PA for a few days?!

Loved the book shelves! That's one thing I struggle with. I'm definitely going to try to tackle ours again in the beat future.
