A Few Of My Favorite Things

I wanted to do this a long time ago - but my house was never clean enough at the same time for me to take all the pictures. Finally, I got it done.

The idea is to choose your favorite item from each room in your house.

The living room is my party-lite infinite reflections tea light holder. I was going to do this post when I first saw it on Sharon's blog, but at the time I had just ordered this and was holding out, since I was hoping it would be my favorite. I love it! It might be a little fancy for our otherwise very casual living room, but I still love it, and someday it will have a room more suited for it's prettyness.

Also in the living room, I love my wedding pictures and boxes...

Moving on to the hallway (this is a stretch, because it is absolutely still the living room, for for the sake of this post, it's a hallway) The flash wouldn't cooperate, but you get the idea.

Next is the kitchen, which was the easiest of all. Absolutely my fiesta dishes. I know it's weird, but I've loved and wanted these WAY before buying dishes was something I needed to think about. I love how bright and colorful they are - it makes everything feel relaxed and casual.

Next is our second bedroom/office. I had to get creative here, since it's mostly a storage room. We bought this bookcase just a few weeks ago. Before that, everything you see on the bookcase was still in boxes stacked on the floor, or just around. It's nice to have a place to put it, and finally be completely unpacked!

Bathroom - again, a little creative. I LOVE these bathtub crayons. Let's ignore the fact that they are made for three year olds and appreciate all the fun things to do with them. Every so often I color and write all over the bathtub, just to keep Calder on his toes.

Here's an example of some of my artwork (waiting on Calder to come home from his trip to Honduras in March)

Now, the second part of the hallway. We have two of these carvings that Calder brought home from his mission in Honduras. I love them!

Lastly, the bedroom. Another tie! The first thing I love is these two matching lamps I got from my mother-in-law for one of my wedding showers. I only took a picture of one, but it has a twin on the other end of the dresser.

And then, my bed. We have the cutest bed I've ever seen. I feel like I have to admit, this is a picture taken a long time ago, when we were moving in. I don't make the bed very often (but I do sometimes). It wasn't made when I was taking pictures, and instead of just doing it, I found an older one. Oh well.

That's it!
