Open House

Our open house is tomorrow and we are so excited for our family and friends to see the new house!  I put together a little before and after photo album, so that our guests can see the transformations we have made.  One thing I spruced up for the open house was the mailbox.  I stained the post and put on a new mailbox.  I also planted dwarf gardenias around the post.

I scoured the internet to find the perfect wording for the invitations, because we truly only want to show off the new digs, we don’t want anyone to bring gifts.  It seems that the consensus is to use the term ‘open house’ rather than ‘housewarming.’  I also added a note at the bottom that we ask please, no gifts.  Hopefully, that will make everyone feel at ease to just come and enjoy the afternoon with us.  Here is the inspiration for my invitations:

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
