  1. Cool photos! I like how antiquey they are - how do you do that?


    1. anastasia,

      i think instagram has a special editing thing that makes it look vintage. :) i love it too.

  2. Hi Marie,

    I just love your snapshots!!! :) I want that spiral staircase, and your shoes, and that horse. :) And those burp clothes are adorable!


  3. Amanda I really like your photos as well. I don't know if you give out your Instagram handle, but I'd like to follow you. The few pictures you have of your home create a really nice illusion in my mind. The spiral stairs add a cool, vintage touch and it seems as though that style fits right in with you. I've always wanted a spiral staircase, but have never followed through. Did you install them yourselves or did the house come with them?
