Well, hello y'all! Welcome to my humble little blog! I am typing this as I watch my little man (who's nearly 4) play in the bathtub! Nothing like being a multi-tasking Mama!
This is my first attempt at creating a blog. I have no idea what I'm doing or where to start or what this will look like when I am finished! But I thought it would be fun to give it a try! I follow SEVERAL blogs myself and most of them are mom's who love to decorate their homes on a budget and love their kiddos even more! If I knew how to link to their sites I would, but here is a list of a few of them just in case you'd like to check them out. I hope they don't mind! I am in love with The Nester's blog (The Nesting Place)-her window mistreatments have inspired me to mistreat my own windows! I am currently in the process of completing NEW dining room curtains!!! Yay me!!!!! I love them! They are fabulous if I do say so myself! Some of the other blogs I enjoy following are: The Country Blossom, Creations by Kara, Just Simply Southern, and Centsational Girl. If you have time, check them out! They won't disappoint!
I hope to have some pictures posted soon of my new window "mistreatments". I've found a new love in decorating my home and being crafty-something I never thought I was! I've also learned to "shop my house" for items. Which my husband just loves because it means I'm not spending any of his hard earned money. :o) I've also learned all about spray paint, toile (be still my heart!), and coordinating (not matching) fabrics!
Lastly, if any of you out there in cyber space have any tips or tricks for a first time blogger, I'd be very grateful for them! Please just leave me a comment or send me an email at 1southernmama (at) gmail (dot) com! Thanks and have a wonderful Wednesday!!!
