We have decided to try and rent out the condo then find a house for ourselves and our 3!! dogs to live someplace in Pinellas county.  Our goal is to get it rented sometime this summer and being close to a University we’re hoping for a graduate or a medical student.
Unfortunately our house is not in as ship-shop shape as one would like, but what can you do…we’ve got to much stuff.  So seeing as our room has been recently cleaned out, re-arranged and organized I thought I’d snap some “staged” pictures that we could use when posting the rental.  And since I've recently blogged about our updates I thought it was only fitting to give you a tour. It sure has come a LONG way since this:

So here is the MUCH better-cleaned up version:
note to self; buy longer bed skirt.
We recently moved our dressers to frame our bed which really opened up the room and eliminated our night stands.
I would love to be able to not have the treadmill or dog bed in here…so much nicer!

And here are some fun detail pictures….

Adam finally got around to hanging our Clyde Butcher prints:IMG_5148

If you don’t know it, I L.O.V.E. black and white photos, this was given to us for our wedding…perfect.IMG_5150

I fell in hard for this next photo way before I met Adam (it was at least 48” tall) and when I saw it at the Clyde Butcher studio I had to have it.  Now if only i could afford to get the odd sized framed! It’s 9x14.  It's by Jeff Ripple, who irronically only photographs S. Florida and N. Michigan!IMG_5151

A while back I thought our bed needed some color, so I decided to make some throw pillows. I ordered this fabric that for some reason I was really drawn to (and I HATE birds!) and it matched perfect! I also really like how the magenta pops…maybe someday I’ll bring more of that color into our room. IMG_5153

Books…Think it’s time I get a new bigger book shelf?IMG_5157
Check out the RANDOMNESS that I am….IMG_5159

And a couple special Items…
IMG_5163 IMG_5164  When I was 18 I was cast as Winter White…these are my shoes that my dear friend Christine and I painted AND Glittered in her basement one late night.  They were worn only a handful of times, but I will always cherish them and the memories and dreams they represent.

IMG_5156     My grandpa Joe made this cross.  Everyone in the family has one-he was an amazing carpenter.  This will always grace the head of my bed.

I hope you enjoyed our room…now if only it always looked like this!!
