A Couple Changes

We did a few changes in the house over the last few days that we thought we'd share.

First things first, we changed the mantle over to St. Patrick's Day.

Our lovely little Seamus (Someone pronounced it Sea-Moose the other day, it's Shea-Mus, ye ol' Irish like) was born on Saint Patrick's Day (how fitting, an Irish mut born on an Irish holiday) so we wrote a Happy Birthday sign for him on some construction paper.

We then added a $1 target wreath and a "Lucky" banner that my mom cut out on her Cricut for us. I don't think it's perfect yet, but it will certainly do the trick.

We also have moved the old dining room piece into the hallway to fill the space while we wait for it to sell on Craigslist.

It's really small for the hallway, but it's a nice placeholder for us to plop our keys on until it sells.

We're still on the hunt for a hutch or something, but it may be placed on hold for awhile due to our new budget plan- we'll see.

What has everyone else been up to?


  1. I am in awe that you can redo your mantel for every holiday! Once Christmas was over, I was like, "done! Until at least Halloween." But look at you with your St. Patrick's Day stuff! Love the lucky banner and the Seamus b-day sign :)

    1. Ha! I certainly don't spend MONEY on my mantles that aren't major holidays- there is no point! But I do enjoy having seasonal decor. As someone who get's really blue throughout the winter it's nice to have things like this up for a pop of color and a reminder that we're almost done with winter!

  2. I love that you switch out your mantel decor for holidays. One day I'll have the energy to do that!
