pieces of home

i dream of the day when we will own a home and have our little family live in it. then i can decorate it the way i want and use my creativity. the hard thing about renting is that you can't paint walls or change flooring. BUT at least we have a home, so in the meantime i am trying to make it as cute as i can with what i've got. i thought it would be fun to share peeks into our little apartment. i know we will look back and cherish these years we borrowed furniture and bought our first couch with a smile. i'll be sharing little spaces as i work on them. (except this bookshelf was not done by me.) i tried, but failed miserably and of course my designer sister came to the rescue! this shelf gives our home some character and it's my favorite thing to look at.
