Hello everyone, I'm Shannon!  
I blog over at Upon A Dream where you can read about my families day to day life along with whatever else I feel like posting about here and there.
I'm so excited that South Shore Mommy invited me over here to share my home with all of you.
Seeing peeks into bloggers homes is one of my favorite things about blogland.
It's always fun to see how others decorate and getting inspired to do something new in our own spaces. 

We moved into our brand new home about 4 years ago and it has changed many times since.
I'm always moving things around, changing it up, it's just what I do.
If and when I have money to spend it is always on something for the house, I rarely spend it on clothes or anything else.
I love vintage so I am always happy to search antique stores and flea markets for one of a kind goods.

Pottery Barn is another favorite place for me, every now and then I will splurge and buy something I just have to have but most of the time I can find something similar at any Homegoods/Marshall's stores!!

We recently re-painted the Living/Dining area Restoration Hardware's Silver Sage.
I've been in love with this color for years and have been saving it for the perfect room always hoping to put it in my all white kitchen.
Since I don't have an all white kitchen I finally gave in a painted it in this area of our home.

I absolutely love it!
This room used to be much darker, seen here, and what an amazing difference this color did to this space.

The Family Room is usually full of toys dragged around by my 2 little girls but I managed to get a few pics of it all cleaned up for you guys.

I get so many comments on the white slipcovers but they are actually wonderful!

Everything has come out of them and that includes blood from little ouchies to pen from being a little too creative.  

I do have to wash them a bit more in the Summer since we are in and out all day long and dirty toes are all over them but I don't mind it at all.

I like knowing that I get to take them off and clean them whenever I feel they are looking a bit dirty.

Plus since they are white I can change out my pillows and colors of the room so easily.

Photography is a passion of mine and I also love flowers so photos and flowers can always be found all around our home.

Here is a sneak into the Master Bedroom.
The one room that gets the least amount of decorating.
I'm always stuck on how to decorate this room, I know what I want but just can't make myself spend the amount of money on a room for us.
I'm working on it and hoping one day to have my dream room but until then I would rather have the other rooms be more taken care of.

I love this lamp that I picked up at an antique store for $10
It was actually supposed to go in one of the girls bedrooms but instead found it's way into the master and now is in our family room.

Our girls were previously sharing a bedroom but after too many not sleeping issues I finally had to switch them back to their own rooms.
Things are 100% better now and I like that they have their own spaces that I can decorate.

This is Brooklyn's bedroom, my youngest, it is very pink.
She is my girly girl and also my mischievous one.
You can see more of her space here

This would be Kayla's room, my oldest.
She loves books and art.

To see more of her room you can go here

Well that is it, atleast what is clean enough to show you for now ;)

Let me know what you think and I hope you all have a chance to come over and visit me at my blog, Upon A Dream and leave me a comment so I can visit you as well!

Have a great Day!
