  • My house sucks. It's been cheap and good to us for a couple of years, but now that we're moving at the end of next month I simply can't handle it anymore.

    But even when our house didn't suck, I don't have the decorator bug. My husband does it.

  • Mine is definitely not from BHG either. Maybe if I won the lottery or something.

  • Hah you are not the only one trust me! If I had the money to buy half of things I see in those magazines I would, but I just don't! So we buy simple but nice things to decorate with. Works for us =)

  • I have worked very hard to make my home "BHG" Home, but it wasnt about 4 years ago! I think once you achieve you look for your home, you will be really excited to maintain!
