Show Us Your Life: Picture Displays

This week, Kelly's Korner is all about picture displays...  I thought I'd share my picture displays from around the house.  (They are not perfect, I took some of them on my phone)  We have pictures displayed EVERYWHERE! Kitchen....dining room...hallway... bedroom.  EVERYWHERE!  

Here are our displays:

Luke's Room


Our Bedroom

Mantle/ Entryway

Dining Room Window

We love pictures and all of the people in them!

Mantle Update

After last week's post... I realized we needed to vamp up our mantle!  After looking back on my "Home" board on pinterest, I came up with a few ideas.  Thanks to Staples' photo enlargements and Hobby Lobby's 1/2 Picture Frames, here is the updated mantle!

The only new items are the "home" sign and the picture & frame.  Total cost $45!

Show Us Your Life: Mantles

When I saw Kelly's Korner was hosting a mantle party, I realized...  our mantle is in desperate need of some love.  Right now, there is NOT A THING on it.  I redecorated our entertainment center and snagged a few items from the mantle.  Hopefully we can get the mantle fixed up soon.  In the meantime, I thought we could stroll down "mantle lane" and look back at the mantle over the past couple of years.

See, we don't actually have a fireplace in our house.  I found this mantle 
at an antique store and loved it.  We have used the snot out of this!
It was first used in our bedroom, this was obviously the "moving in" stage. 

We later moved into our entryway, which is where it still lives today.
My mantle needs lots of love!

This was our mantle last summer, looking good.
But still needs something better.

Here was our New Year Mantle 2011.  
This was fun, but of course only temporary.  

Like I said before today, the mantle has NOT A THING on it.  
I am desperately searching pinterest and hoping to find great ideas. 

Check back soon & I hope to have an updated mantle post  :)

Luke's 4 Month Update and July the 4th

Little Luke Boy is already 4 months old... Where in the world has the time gone?
This has by far been the greatest month.  He is sitting in his bumbo seat, eating baby food, smiling at everything,  laughing out loud, sleeping like a champ(10-11 hours).  It is just great!

4 Month Stats:

26 3/4" tall
(we know this was wrong, but the Dr. never re-measured, so we will go with it.)
14.6 lbs
42" head circumference
Luke is eating bananas & peaches so far.  
We are doing peas next, followed by carrots. 
He starting rolling over some.
I can now hold Luke like a real baby, propped up on my hip and he loves it!
Luke also celebrated his First 4th of July today.

and some pictures...

he was finished with that little photo shoot  :)
