Wanted: A space to inspire

It's Monday and sometimes on Mondays I like to share spaces that inspire me. But for today, I'd thought I'd blog a bit about our search to find our own space. The mister and I have been house hunting for a several weeks now (not with reckless abandon, but as we have time) and I'm thinking it might help to narrow the search a bit, like maybe just decide on some sort of pink cottage-y looking thing or nothing at all. I feel the need to shake things up a bit because at this point, I'm starting to feel like if you've seen one 1960's ranch on the west side of the city, you've seen them all. Ya know? Perhaps if I set a few more perimeters, it would help the situation. 

I don't want to sound like a party pooper - and I do think of myself as someone who can see potential in things that may not look that appealing... but let me tell ya, wine taste on a beer budget just stinks. It doesn't matter if you're looking for a new pair of shoes or a place to live. 

On the brighter side, we have a very smart and capable realtor and the husband isn't feeling as pessimistic as I am currently, so upward and onward! We resume the hunt on Wednesday and I will keep you posted. 

Ta ta for now and don't forget to enter my giveaway for a $30 shop credit to Fern & Flora's etsy shop
