easy on the eyes (Angela from TPC)

The only thing better than looking at pictures of a beautifully decorated space is looking @ pictures of a beautifully decorated "REAL HOME". Let me introduce my friend Angela. I am in awe at what she has been able to accomplish on such a budget. She is a DIYer and an artist with an incredible eye. Anyway, you really do need to go check out her blog because this week she is giving us the tour of their cottage in Appalachian Mountains and you will not be disappointed.

A few key notes to the above:

*Artwork was done by Angela
*Craigslist
*Garage sale
*Antique malls
*IKEA
*Home Goods
*Outlets
*DIY Painting
*DIY Reupholstering

And all of this while handling her bustling children...my kind of girl. Of course, she points out that she is still not finished and has many more things she wants to add to the above room...sound familiar to anyone? Well I think it looks smashing.

Ok fine one last picture to serve as a sneak peak to what's going over @ Angela's blog as she gives us the tour of the cottage...only because it inspires & I liked it extra special. In fact I would post more pictures from her home because I love it all but alas I better let you hop on over to Angela's blog to see more.

Thanks Angela for letting your talent grace this blog.

Yep in case you were wondering the above is Angela and she is as easy on the eyes as her home is.
Angela - I hope you don't mind that I posted the above picture...can we still be friends?

Thank you, Christina, for the post. Sure, you can propagate all the photoshopped images of me that you want. It's better than real life. ;)

Thank you, Kera and Helena, for the love!
