my little house (i like to call Casa di M) will never look like it could even be remotely included on the selby. you'll find art against walls and a flooded book shelves, a hoarding of knick knacks -- you find that too on the selby but for some reason in my house it looks like clutter.
at best, an organized mess.
but it's these little (er messy) details that makes it very much me and pieces of memories we've collected that make it very much 'us' (though my husband will tell you he could do with some major downsizing, which believe it or not i have done with our most recent move to el paso).
our doorway (i have a thing for door knobs and skeleton keys)
our overflowing bookshelves
i love our mirrored bar in our living room, complete with a sink.
our fire place mantle-- the first wine bottle is the very first one me and max ever shared; the second one we shared the night we got engaged in our first house together on a mattress on our empty bedroom floor.joel's aunt made it and it's still one of my favorite pieces. You can also see my Butch Anthony original -- a lucky win in a giveaway hosted by my beautiful friend and momma-to-be, Kitty.
my bathroom counter
our nightside table
a selby home it may never be, but home (our home) it is.
