Hello, and welcome to our second floor walk up, nestled just off the boulevard in the hustle and bustle of Chicago. My husband, Scott, and I live alongside our two fuzzy cats, one spunky puppy, and tank full of colorful fish. In our quest to convert our itsy bitsy condo into a happy and comfy home, we’ve decided to jump on the blogging bandwagon and document our story. It only made sense that our first post should welcome you, literally, to our front door. Scott snagged this unique piece by a local artist, James, during a show at Revolution Tattoo. With a small swatch of velcro, it has become a staple upon entering our home.
And just to avoid any future awkwardness, I’m Kim. I have an addiction to decorative pillows, gaudy photo frames, scarves, and red wine. Sometimes I wish I could learn to buy an item off the shelf and not alter it with a fresh coat of paint, but perhaps that’s why I feel compelled to blog about these so-called issues of mine. I tend to get very excited over rummage sale finds and the potential they have, and I know there are people out there who share that same enthusiasm. I like to think that’s why we’re starting this blog. I know we’re not alone out here.
So from our home-sweet-home to yours, “Hello!”
