February is All About the Home

Photobucket
This month I'm excited to focus on the home over here at Smile and Wave. We're still settling in our new place and making it cozy and I'm planning on sharing a few works in progress and finished home projects as we go. My hope in all of this is to get things as finished as they can be by the end of the month in order to share a home tour!

I've also got two other home tours lined up, home decor inspiration, dream lists, a diy or two, and some personal posts on things I've learned as a renter. I'm looking forward to this month's content focus but will still be sharing regular features such as Vintage Here, Vintage There, Project ReStyle, Vintage Findings, and life at our house!

Thanks for stopping by! I'd like to welcome my new sponsors for the month of February and invite you to take a look at what they're all about. We're still snowed in in Springfield but it's looking beautiful outside today! Clear skies and tons of snow covering our neighborhood.

xoxo,
Rachel

Home tours are always such fun to scroll through, and that Liberty print backing paper is gorgeous.

I'm all about some home inspiration posts! I'm working on style boards for mine and my husband's apt. We got married in June and have lived in our apt ever since but we haven't made tons of progress yet. It's my first time having more than just my own personal room to decorate so i'ts been a bit overwhelming but I think I'm figuring out my personal style more now. Anyway, I say this all to say I'm looking forward to this series ha :)

Yay! being ready for a home tour just a few months after moving (with little ones) may be record setting :)

Looking forward to your posts!

I cannot wait to decorate my own home.
Starting fresh must be a hassle but so fun to create a new environment!
Your vintage style on things are soooo cute!

The nasty cold outside in February makes it the perfect time to peek into other people's homes (virtually, of course!). I'm excited to see how you've been settling in :)

How's all the shoveling going? I think it looses its allure pretty quickly :) I'm sooo excited for your lineup for this month as well, sounds great!! (did you make that little diorama/doll house?!)

This is perfect. I got married 4 months ago but have been traveling ever since. Now that our travels are coming to an end, I am getting so excited to make our first home together! Bring on the inspiration goodies.

Fantastic, I love home-decor posts! Even though I've got to reel in all of my ideas and desires to decorate at the moment because I'm living in shared accommodation, I still love to collect inspiration for when I (finally) move out into a place of my own. Can't wait to see what you're offer up :)
