Day 942's guest post

The ole house is looking awfully Springy today, which is kind of dangerous as it is definitely still January. I put some cute purple tulips in the dining room to jazz it up for a few photos for my guest appearance on Pure Style Home. Quite frankly I worked myself into a little tizzy at the thought of my humble abode sitting there for all of Lauren's world to see. But it was fun!

So then I moved the wild daffodils into the living room (I took this photo before I tried any of your tricks). I also spray-painted that bust in the aforementioned tizzy, and is it just me or am I starting to get a handle on this whole silly "tablescaping" (I hate that word!) thing?

I loved your post on Pure Style Home. My husband and I just built a house and I am trying to decorate on a budget too. We need furniture an window treatments first, but I keep wanting to do everything now. It is hard to stretch the dollar for the key pieces.

What is the size of your dining room? My dining room is pretty small, 12x13, and I am afraid I will not be able to fit very much in there. I love your table, it was a great find.

Have a great day!

Hi Jennifer,

I follow your and Lauren's blog and really enjoyed reading about how your dining room came together. For someone who is not a "professional designer" you sure are one talented lady! Thanks for sharing!!

I really enjoyed your post on Lauren's blog today. Such a lovely transformation and a beautiful outcome. I'm excited to take a look at your archives.

You shouldn't have worried and fussed as your house looks lovely. I do think the tulips were a good investment as they do add that special touch to the sideboard. Good choice.

Hi Jennifer,

I came over for a visit from Pure Style Home. You've totally sucked me in. I've been sitting here reading your blog for about an hour now and enjoying every minute. I'm particularly intrigued about the seagrass rug from the Salvation Army that you took a leap of faith with. Now thats gutsy thrifting.

I think I need a post over at Pure Style home to put me into a little tizzy. Looks like it was worth all the tail spinning at your sweet spot.

Let's go antiquing/flea marketing one day. I'm serious!
