My husband and I bought our first house last year. When I first moved here to Norway and moved into his apartment I never had the feeling of fully being in my own place. It just felt like I moved into my husband's bachelor pad. Of course I did change a few things, but once we bought our own home I felt like I could completely let loose and feel like our new house was my blank canvas. I do whatever I set my mind to as far as decorating my home - inside and out.
I do like having a bit of American-ism in my decorating. I really love primitives as can be seen in my kitchen. When in America, I enjoy finding primitive decor and bringing it back to my home in Norway. For example, I have a sign in my kitchen I bought from Tennessee that says, "When mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy." I incorporate milk cans, milk jugs, the head of a rake (to hang potholders and wine glasses), and my own homemade crafts in my home decorating.
Fall is one of my favorite seasons to decorate for. I love the colors and I enjoy the autumn holidays. With Thanksgiving coming up I needed to decorate with what I have for the festivity. As seen below is my current dinner table decoration.
