I have been working on Rearranging some sofas....here are a few photos of my home today, i did not prepare for the photos, just took them, so a little messy here and there.

Went to big flea market early this morning and bought a few more goodies,then spent the rest of my day just relaxing at home with family. Everywhere you look in my home you will see something thrown somewhere my chair is covered with blankets and pillows. I did not except to take photos today , but just wanted to share some photos, i love to see homes in there natural environment. So here they are ..
Have a great week !!

Even a little tousled your home is as pretty as can be. I love the old rug with all the white, and your Rachel Ashwell rosary looks good everywhere ...

I love your style your home, but when you always say things aren't organized or that that is the way things always look, seems not true to me. Please don't get me wrong, but if that were the case there would be toys or other items that don't go with the decor.

Just stumbled upon your blog. Very, very comfy and cozy here!

FinsFan said...

Your home is sooooooooooo pretty! I love all your touches and accents. Our floor is like yours, and I just love your rug. I think that will be on the wish list for fall is a new rug for under the coffee table! Have a wonderful Labor Day ...evening! The w-end went too fast : )

Simply Me said...

Simply Me said...

Really this is how my living room looked today with no toys!!!!

Simply Me said...

P.S Seems to me TRUE, I'm sharing my home, why do i need to lie...

stefanie said...

Simply Me said...

I still have it , New room... I have a small house, only 3 bedrooms, and too many kids to we are rearranging, and i moved it into the family room, fits perfectly!! I need more space , or a bigger home!!!...lol so i have made some changes, and i will have photos for you

Lara said...

Looks amazing! I love your new floors! I wish I could extend our hardwood floors out to our livingroom.. someday! I am drooling over your perfectly rustic coffee table - all so pretty! You are a master at comfy & relaxing!

Rachel Pallas said...

I was just going to ask where your yummy brown shabbylicious leather sofa went..then saw your answer! :) And I agree with you Tausha..your house doesnt have to have toys in every corner for it not to be unstaged! I always kept my kiddos toys contained or picked up too! ;) As always LOVE what you are doing with your decor my friend!! xoxo Rachel

Bohemian said...

Your Home always looks so fresh, airy and inviting... and I can never take my eyes off your fab Rugs! *Winks... you know what a Persian Rug Addict I am! LOL* Did you discover that amazing Coffee Table as it is or did you transform some killer Salvage pieces to create it? Love it!!!
Thanks for stopping by... yes, I too love old Boots and am looking for some Hippie Gypsy Chic Western version right now.

I get lost in your beautiful photos of your charming home. I would love to do my home all shabby chic. I always pick up things around my home whether I'm photographing it or not.

Simply Me said...

The coffee table was as is, when i bought it , its smaller than the other one, so fits perfectly in here, i have a lot more space in this room now.

Dear Tausha, Your white sofa is beautiful. Is it shabby chic couture? You are an inspiration! Love your home. Deb

Simply Me said...

Thank you ! No its not RA i purchased it about 5 years ago, online, i was looking for something i could afford that was a slipcover in white. It cost about $1500, or $1700 i think!

Hi Tausha!

Your home is beautiful! So simple!

Have a great day!

Simply Me said...

Thank you so much !!!! You too

laura venosa said...

Hi Tausha I love all you do so beautifully serene.. hope to see you one of these days.. xo Laura

Hi again!

Would you mind sharing with us where you got your white sofa at? It's beautiful! Does the slipcover wash nicely?

Thanks!

:)

Simply Me said...

I have to see if i still have the email, of when i purchased it i bought it 5 years ago approx online store and forgot, but no it does not wash easy, so i would not recommend it i have washed it several times to make it more soft, and it is now, but still hard to get the slipcover on it. I so badly want to have it redone with Muslin fabric ...i will wait until the kids are a little older. but i will check to see if i can find the store i bought it from . Thanks for asking

Mary Nell said...

Once again, you've outdone yourself. You have a very creative eye for things. I move furniture and assessories around all the time and I'm much older than you. It's in our D&A I think. I'm happy as long as my home surroundings are beautiful and easy to live with. Most of my furniture is slipcovered too. Love your white sectional. Just wondering if you got your brown leather sofa at RA? Have a great day.

Simply Me said...

AW thank you so much!! The brown leather one is from RestorationHardware..

Brenna said...

OMG....So funny how some people have nothing good to say and it's anonymous.LOL.No back bone I guess also their Mother clearly never told them that when you don't have nothing good to say then say nothing at all!Anyhow I used to have a coffee table almost like that.I loved it! However it's gone now, :( wish I still had it.

Simply Me said...

Thank you everyone so much !!! This is not a job for me and I'm not selling anything, so i have nothing to prove to anyone... I do this everyday of my life , moving stuff around and making things pretty for me in my home. Things are never perfect , I'm not even a photographer , i just enjoy what i do.. I'm so glad everyone is so supportive and there are so many nice people out there. I clean all day and all night. So when my house is clean i love to take photos. Normally i can take photos when my little one is taking a nap so its a little easier for me, and cleaner. I have always been the type of person to never have a dirty house. So i will not let one little me anonymous person bring me down ..who means nothing to me ... thank you everyone so much !!! too many other things in my life that mean more to me.

Le Boutique Chic said...

Hello! I was given your blog link by a friend of mine who swears you are my 'spiritual design twin'...lol!! She has been telling me for YEARS to start a blog about the things I do around my house. Your house is right out of a Shabby Chic magazine. You should be VERY proud of yourself! You should also think about submitting your blog to Rachel for consideration of photographing vignettes for her. REALLY, I am serious! Really great photography! ANYWAYS..... I have babbled long enough... Haha! I just wanted to introduce myself (Deanna), and say hi to my sista.... :)

Le Boutique Chic said...

Oopsie, I forgot to mention that I would LOVE for yourself and your followers to peek at my first blog.... Hey, it make be a good laugh for you! ~wink~. Lord knows, I got LOTS to learn in blogland!

Hugs!

Renee' said...

Simply Me, I love love your blog and your taste. Don't let the post get to you, you do a great job. So what if you staged it that doesn't matter. Just jealous thats all. What color r your walls in the living room. You should post your home on Rate my space on HGTV and be the next designer star. Girl you have it.

Rachel Pallas said...

Wow Tausha..Im so sorry that "anonymous" is being so rude and critical of your photos..just shows they are unhappy with themselves and wish they could have your beautiful home and style my friend~ take it as a compliment! Jealous people can try to bring you down..but I know you wont let them! Keep being true to yourself and your style~ xoxo Rachel

I love them !!! I would like to see :) a post with your new stuff :) if is not too much to ask please.

shabbykelly said...

Tausha,

It's funny, I have a list of blogs that are on my favorites list(your's being one)I don't know these people. I feel as if I do though! I get so inspired by you and the other blogs I look at. I get excited by every new post. Obviously, the Anonymous poster was looking at your pictures and is clearly jealous(so am I!) So, take it as a compliment, they prob. have toys strewn all over their house! Keep up the posts, your awesome!

Eileen @ Cottage Beach House said...

Your vignettes make me smile. :) They make me feel like ploppin down in the comfiest chair or bed full of ruffles and white eyelet and splashes of pink roses. They are all the things I love to have around me.They are candy to the eye. Thank you.

Allison said...

Your home is gorgeous, Tausha and you have such a way with photography and decorating. Simply beautiful! Your home is cozy and comfortable looking. I love the basket next to the sofa with the pretty chunky knit throw and the umbrellas.

mapleandvine said...

your home is truly stunning!

ShantyGirl said...

I love the look of your room, loved the leather as well but this couch just looks so cozy. Your rosarie and your new pillow are beautiful. I have had my eye on the union jack and love the fall that is on the site with greys. Your pictures are beautiful as usual, your home in a natural state speaks comfort and cleanliness! Have a wonderful day!
Rachel's Praire Store is having a grand opening this month and I am so tempted to make the drive for her new book signing.........
I just caught the post that was well not so nice, it is like the old saying if you don't have something nice to say don't say anything at all, why stalk someone's blog just to say something ugly it just speaks jealousy to me.....there are more things to do in one's day than to follow blogs to make rude comments.......would that person be happier if you trashed your house and took pictures, have a big party and leave everything for days and take pictures????????LOL keep doing what you do! You are doing it for free and inspiring many such a shame someone took the energy to be negative!! But you get to be you! Hugs

cindi s. said...

Tausha I got to send my comment through!!!! I don't know how I did it!!! Hopefully I can keep getting it figured out as I have been trying and my computer would not send it through. I am going to order me a rosary too!!!! Love it!!! Cindi S.

Shabby soul said...

My sweet friend, you could have a little home, but it's really stunning! You have a so special taste in arranging everything :)
I love your little coffee table, I want one like this!
Have a wonderful WE

Razmataz said...

I really do enjoy your photos. As far as Anonymous....what difference does it make if you moved a teacup into the photo....really! Do any of us bloggers take photos of our house when it is a mess. I can do a great photo of my living room, all pretty and slightly staged, and to the blog world it looks like I live like that, yet behind me is all the crap that I move out of the way for the photo.. Anonymous needs to get stuffed.

Don't take it personally, you home is very lovely and I always enjoy your new posts.
