Hello dear readers and welcome back for another post in my Home Ownership 101 Series. People often ask how I have achieved such a beautifully furnished home with “expensive antiques” and a high end look on a “teacher budget.” The fact is, I never let being on a limited budget dictate how I wanted my house to look.

Hello and welcome to the 93rd All About Home Link Party! Even though summer doesn’t officially arrive on the calendar for a few more weeks, school ends here on Friday and that means…it’s summer! Boy do I need a break after this long year of virtual/hybrid teaching! It has been an extremely busy week for me as I prepare my seniors to sing at graduation and finalizing some things for this school year too. I am very much looking forward to just being inspired by all the beautiful post at this week’s party and to get caught up with all of you. I am so glad you are here to party!
Debra and I are thrilled to be your hosts each week! We love to inspire and be inspired by you too. Here is what we have been up to recently:
