I live in Eastern Pennsylvania. Below the Poconos and North of the Lehigh Valley. I currently live in a small town that I grew up in. Its a nice little town. I just feel like I am ready to move somewhere else even if its another small town or a small city. Today is a cold, dreary day. Grey... A day for hot coffee and Netflix movies. But although this grey is dreary, I do like grey. I like it in my decor and in my wardrobe. For years I've been mixing grey and beige colors together. Although it wasn't so popular then, now it has become very trendy and I like it alot.  My favorite colors are white, off white, beige, grey, black, green, yellow, blue... and more. But my base colors are usually white, grey and black. Here are some pics of inspiration...



This is my couch I bought this year.

Wood Floors

Oh I really love wood floors. Although I wouldn't have said that years ago. I wanted carpet and then I started to like tile, especially after a visit to Cozumel, Mexico. I loved the tiled Onyx floors, walls... basically used everywhere. It was stunning... But in my search for a home. I want to find old wood floors... hidden under layers or not it doesn't matter. Hopefully in tact and not too badly damaged that it doesn't need to be pulled up. I don't mind worn and aged. If it looks too bad, I would consider painting them. I have chosen some pics from my Pinterest to share with you. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Vintage Kitchen

When I buy my home, if it doesn't have a vintage sink, I want to install one. I love the 1940s farmhouse style drainboard sink.





I hope to find one on Craigslist and add a awesome faucet to it.

Could've, Should've or Not?

A year ago I found this place for sale in Easton, Pa. I even went to a realtor and had them show it to me. I fell in love with it. It had many things I desired. A story to tell. It was a end unit. 3 story high townhouse. Plaster walls with cracks. High ceilings. Original kitchen cupboard to the ceiling. Old doors, windows, wood floors and claw-foot tub to name a few things... A small garden area behind. But it needed lots of work. Including possible foundation problems. It was already listed on the historic registry. And it was listed... for $5,000. I even had the money to buy it... But I was scared. Scared it was too much for me to take on... I guess I wasn't ready. I then saw that later the one next door to it also went for sale...

Here are some pics of it.
