In my years of blogging, we have been in varying financial situations (I was working, I wasn't, I was in grad school, We are paying off grad school debts), but I've always found a way to make our home pretty. It's one of my main hobbies, so that helps (the motivation is there!) but really, it has come down to lots of creativity. There is a lot out there in the blogosphere about decorating on a dime, but I thought that I'd add my own perspective and hints on how create the home of your dreams when on a budget. My style is traditional/cottage with a healthy dose of vintage goodness, so that is what I seek when decorating our house.
