Trash to Treasure

This weekend I came across this extremely comfy looking chair someone had thrown out. I was pretty dirty as you can see in this picture, but it was nothing that couldn't be fixed.

I sometimes wonder how I can see all the good use left in the things others have thrown out & clearly cannot see. The chair was dirty & had a tear in the side, but it's real leather & just as I thought is also extremely comfortable! So I had my amazing strong hubby get the chair for me & then I started cleaning it. 

It took quite a bit of elbow grease & a couple sore fingers from poking myself with the needle as I was sewing up the tear in the side but I think it looks pretty nice.

Maybe I'm weird, but I love that we haven't bought anything really for our house. Most of the things we have we've found and put work into, or were passed down to us. We have this gorgeous dining room table that was given to us by my hubby's parents and is an antique. The chairs we found, someone threw them out.

I got this lamp at the thrift store for $3.00 and it's one of my favorite things in our house! I bought the lampshade at Pier One and it's perfect because our apartment had no lights, we have to use lamps in every room.

We also found this little end table next to our couch it has a lamp attached it's pretty old, but there's nothing wrong with it and the light still works. We love it it hangs perfectly over our little couch for reading.

We love what our little house has become, it's so comfortable & it's very homey to us. I'm sad that we will be moving when D comes around and I have to go back to Texas. We will be coming back to the same apartment complex though I think. We love our apartment & we wanna stay here.

Pin Up Photos #2

Jus thought I'd share a few more photos from my pin up shoot with 

If you're in the Hampton Roads area check her out she does amazing work and she's so much fun to hang out with!

I had so much fun during this shoot, I was nervous at first but I had my good friend Sarah with me who also took some photos so that made things easier. Christina is so easy to work with that all the nervous feelings went away anyway. I LOVE how the photos turned out and my husband loves them as well. I can't wait to print them for him and send them with him on the ship. I have tons more to come once they are all edited but I'm so excited I couldn't help but share again! I will definitely going back to take more photos there are so many more ideas that we just couldn't fit into the day. We spent nearly seven hours shooting between the two of us. It was exhausting but so worth it!
