Pardon me while I do a huge happy dance, because our new floors are done! Actually they have been done for a week and I am loving them oh so much! This was one house update that I have been looking forward to since the day we moved in. Everywhere I lived previously had carpet floors. While there is nothing wrong with carpet, by any means, I have always dreamed of a home with dark, wood looking floors and I am still in shock that I actually have them now. It only took me 30 long years! Ha!
When I showed you a sneak peek of the flooring we decided on, I mentioned how I used to be a huge snob to laminate. My heart was set on hardwood. Well my views quickly changed after seeing it in person in a few of my friends homes, and I am so so pleased with the outcome of ours! I was super picky when I first started looking, and learned some things along the way. So I wanted to share a few tips when shopping around for your perfect laminate floors!
Friday. You have never looked so good. Really, you haven’t. Seems I’ve caught my first cold of the season and bring you this post from my tissue filled bed. Not the ideal time to get sick, but what can you do! Too bad we still have a million more staples to pull to get ready for our new flooring next weekend! Who wants to come help us? I’ll feed you and tell you how amazing I think you are. In all honesty I have a lot of projects to get done so I am chugging some vitamin C like no other so I can check them off my list!
Oh, what it would be like to be one of those people who can focus on one project at a time. Plan it, finish it, then move on to the next. I am certainly not one of those people! I have a long wishlist of projects that I hope to get done one day, but when I start planning, one idea turns into another, and then I need to do this, or that, and so on and so forth. I have decorating ADHD like no other, my friends! You might have heard me mention we are getting new floors put in this month. Well, a week and half now actually! *Happy dance* With new floors, I thought it would be a great time to paint our main living area too. Time for builder-beige to go! And by main living area I mean our living room, kitchen, dining room, stairs, entryway, and hallway…because they all share one paint color. So there’s that. And thennnnn, wouldn’t you know it, I found the perfect bed frame for our master, and the perfect paint color for our guest bathroom…you get the picture! It’s ongoing and it never ends.
I’ve decided. I’m bringing back my Friday round ups! Except, I’m changing it up a little bit! If you have been around you know I used to do home decor posts that I called It’s Friday, I’m in Love. They were so much fun and I miss sharing my awesome finds with all of you! There is nothing better than starting your weekend with a little eye candy and maybe some inspiration if you plan to do some shopping. To me it’s all about the details, so I will be popping in every Friday to share five farmhouse style products I have found that make life, well, prettier. First up, these super cute and affordable utensil holders! I hope you love them!
I may be late to the party, but I couldn’t let my little blogs Second Blogiversary go by without acknowledging it! I started this creative spot two years ago on August twentieth, so we are celebrating a little over a week late to be precise. But that’s okay with me! Belated is better than never, right?! And also, maybe you have noticed that I have been a bit quiet around here lately. So I just wanted to catch up and chat about some things, and I thought this blogiversary would be the perfect time for it!
But first, I want to start by saying thank you. I am so so grateful that you are reading this, or skimming this, or even just looking at the pictures. Heck, maybe you were just trying to buy some glass jars online and you accidentally stumbled on to my blog. I am thankful for each one of you. I never thought Little Glass Jar would grow the way it has and you are the reason. I love to share my thoughts and ideas about anything home decor related, and I love that you follow along.
You guys!!! I am so excited right now! I’m on my way to Atlanta today to attend my first blogging conference! If you have been reading any home decor or DIY blogs in the past few years, then you most likely have heard one of them mention it. There are so so many amazing conferences held each year, but this one is perfect for my blogging niche. It’s called Haven Conference and it’s generally for any Home/DIY bloggers. Hundreds of bloggers gather for a weekend of networking with sponsors and other bloggers, attending classes to better their business for all of you, our wonderful readers, and to have a great time! I am so happy that I made the decision to attend this year, as my two year Blogiversary is also this month and I am looking to really focus on making this little space the best it can be!
