Eye SPY: Around the Home

Eye SPY: Around the Home

This week's theme--anything you feel inspired to take pictures of around your home. To get the caught up on the I SPY series, click here.

And now,
Welcome to the nooks and crannies of my home.

I Spy the first thing you'll see when you walk into my home--a friendly reminder of my latest neurosis, no shoes inside.
{Stamped est. sign tutorial, hook shelf by Old and New Again}

I Spy our very first family portraits hanging over our couch.


{portraits by Brittany Davis}


I Spy baby-proofing on every door and cupboard.


I Spy lots of hidden treasures shoved under my TV stand by Baby W.



I Spy a framed picture of the "newlywed days". 
The days of tan skin, no stretch marks and lots of date nights.


I Spy my favorite artwork.


{Family Rules sign by BOP, picture frame by Bed Bath & Beyond, Baby W painting by Modern Bird Studios, Cutlery Wall Art tutorial here}

I Spy leaves cut from old book pages.



I Spy a glimpse of my gray and blue bathroom.


{Sign by BOP, Anthro knock off ruffle shower curtain made by my grandma}

I Spy a sorry excuse for a pantry.  Sad, I know.
Are you craving Lucky Charms now?



I Spy the wall where I tested paint colors for our master bedroom...2.5 years ago.


I Spy a toddler playing, and the teeny tiny workspace where I write most of my posts.



I Spy a baby who wants his Daddy to feel better.





I Spy a baby who doesn't understand what NO means.



I Spy the world's fastest clapping baby--who is clearly very pleased with his disobedience.



I Spy the highlight of my day--a surprise brownie pop package in the mail, from a dear friend of whom I have never met face to face.



I Spy the power of a heart-felt note, and the thoughtfulness of true friendship.


{a special thanks to Britt and the surprise package she sent us this week too, it was oh-so-yummy}

I Spy a hubby determined to get out of the house, one way or another.





I Spy my forever, resting on our front lawn.


I Spy a home,
where love lives.

Super fun theme! When does the linky close? I'd love to write up a post on Thursday if possible...just discovered the party but have been a follower for a while. :)

P.S. Tan skin and no stretch marks were way cooler than unwashed hair and flabby skin.

I love the collection of pics above the couch!
Let me ask you: does your hubby let you have free reign in the decor department or does he give in put? just curious; mine definitely gives input!! (lots and lots...)

I LOVE this series. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to share it with you! Did I miss the theme for next week? I hope there is one. I mean I already feel I would be lost without it! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE don't stop. (too much?) What I meant to say was, I'll be waiting patiently for the next cool thing you come up with.

Stopping by from HowDoesShe! :) Love your home! Can you tell me where you got your couches? I've always wanted white, but I've been too chicken! Do they stay white?

Everything is beautiful!

I have to post mine later. I didn't get to do it today. But I will post it.

Your husband has the thing on his knee that I had when I had surgery. The ice water thing that attaches to the ice machine that is in the ice water. THAT THING SAVED ME! I LOVED IT!!!!!! Sorry, just had to tell you that!

Your house is so cute. I love all the little details like the leaves from the pages of books. And I LOVE your pantry. Mostly because I am jealous. I don't even have a pantry...I have to stick my can goods in every little spot I can find.

I love this idea. Thanks for hosting. I don't know what happened to my title. I titled it I Spy Home Edition and it changed to a link title for a different party.

I hope your husband heals quickly.

What happened to your husband?? I am on week number nine since breaking my tibia/fibula and ankle. I can finally walk again, so I literally feel his pain... and yours! It really is hardest on the spouse! Good luck and sweet post.
