Our House: Why We Love it + The Outside

So... we said weeks ago we were going to blog about our new house after we closed on it... and we never did! But, we have been a little busy! We were at the Canton Flea Market last week- which went very well- but leading up to that, we were working like crazy to get ready for it! And now, we're busy with orders and getting ready for the Olde Towne Market in Clinton next month... but we wanted to take a few minutes to tell you why we decided to buy this house, as well as share a few photos of the outside of the house.

Okay... so, we said in a previous post that we were not expecting to buy a house, but this house came on the market and we knew we had to go look at it.  Since this house was in my parent's neighborhood, I'd driven by it for years and always liked it. And once we saw the house inside, we knew we loved it! We made an offer a couple days later... and soon, it was ours!

So... reasons we love our house:

1. It's older... but it's in good shape! So it has the charm of an older home, but it doesn't have a ton of work to do right now.

2. It sits right on a beautiful lake. When you look at our front window... you see water and we love it!

3. Hardwood floors in most of the house!

4. TWO WALK-IN CLOSETS in the very good sized master suite! Need I say more?

5. The workshop building that was already in the back yard- perfect for Jonathan's tools and making frames!

These are just a few of the reasons we love our house... as we share more pictures of the inside, we'll tell you about other things we love. But for now, we'll leave you with some pictures of the outside and front of our new house!

Here's a shot of the front of our house!

This is our view out the front window and from our front door!

These ducks live on the lake and Jonathan likes to feed them.

These two are always the most hungry! The white one will practically stand on your feet begging for food!

So... there's a few pictures for now. More to come later! Have a great weekend!

Be True To Your School!

Hello and happy Wednesday (well it's almost over now, but when I wrote this it wasn't) to everyone reading! Between moving into our new house and getting ready for the Canton Flea Market (which is just a week away now!!), we've been BUSY! But, we wanted to share a few photos of some school spirit themed frames we've made! Everyone loves to display photos from games, tailgating, etc- so why not do it with a frame that's your school's colors?!

These will be special order items, so we can do these frames in any school colors! It can be your favorite college or high school. School colors will look great on any of our frames, but they especially look good on our Large Chunky 4x6, Chunky 4x6, Mini Chunky and Clip Chunky Frames! We already have paint for most colleges and universities in Mississippi, but we can get paint for probably (any) school you have in mind! Contact us today (via Etsy or by emailing so we can get started on your school spirit frame! These will make great Christmas gifts this year!

Here are some pictures of frames we have made as examples:

 Large Chunky 4x6 ($25) for Mississippi State and Ole Miss

Large 4x6 Chunky ($25) - Mississippi State

Large 4x6 Chunky ($25) - Ole Miss

Mini Clip Frame ($10) - Mississippi State

Remember - these are special order so contact us if you are interested in purchasing a school frame! :)

On a personal note... we'll (hopefully) be back on the blog later this week with a first look at our new house! PLUS- we'll have a guest post by Jonathan's sister some time very soon about some of the vintage furniture she's gotten for her new apartment out in Los Angeles! Stay tuned...!
