Pittsburgh, United States
35 Y/O wife to Tim and mom to Emma,Noah,Caleb, Stella and 2 babies in Heaven.Trying to walk in the path of the Lord and carrying my family with me. I love our 1902 home we purchased more 10 years ago. It is constantly evolving and goes through whatever changes my little heart desires. I love vintage treasures and I'm always on the hunt for them! My hope is that this blog will be a constant scrapbook for my family and home,a place to make new friends and just somewhere to lay out my thoughts,even if they aren't beautiful or inspiring.

Nikki's Favorite Things


Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things!

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple strudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things!

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eye lashes
Silver white winters that melt into spring
These are a few of my favorite things!

When the dog bites, when the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad,
I simply remember
my favorite things
and then I don't feeel so bad!

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things! 
My Favorite Things ~The Sound of Music

I love this song! Only growing up I didn't associate it with 'The Sound of Music'. I heard it every Christmas on our Kenny Roger's Christmas tape.  Now I know that sounds pretty much cheesy but I still can't listen to it without getting pretty teary eyed.Thinking of Christmas' long ago with people who are gone from this world. So I love that tape/cd whatever. It's my go to Christmas music.

Anyways, Oprah always had her favorite things. Complete with lavish giveaways. Giveaways?? Love those! Don't you? Well,more about that later.......

Life Made Lovely: Every week I totally look forward to the feature 'Home Made Lovely' Where Heather takes you inside some fabulous homes in and around the blogosphere. It's so fun to see the creativity in these homes. *some day* I would love to see my own home featured.*some day* She also has a wonderful link up on Mondays!

Happy Days: I think the reason I'm drawn to Hannah's blog is that she is just so REAL. I seriously wish she was my neighbor or went to my church or something because I think we'd friends :) Hannah hosts the Pen Friends project!

Lucky Number 13: I first found Amy on Pinterest and she shared so many wonderful things. Then I saw her home featured over at Life Made Lovely and was a nice surprise that one of the bestest pinners had a blog! I think her blog is one of my favorites visually. Join Amy for Virtual Coffee on Tuesday.

Jolly Goode Gal: I have been reading Jerusalem's blog for maybe 3 years now? She is very sweet and creative.God blessed her in that department let me tell you! Her house is so cool it's even been in a magazine! How's that for Awesome sauce?
Join Jerusalem every Thursday for Confessions.
