Hi All!
I'm Harmony and I blog over at Thistles and Twigs

I started my blog about 3 years ago to document the renovation of our old, used-to-be-a duplex, circa 1931, house.  We take DIY to the extreme!

Now we're about 60% done with our home and loving it a little piece at a time.

 If I could offer one piece of advice to fellow DIY'ers it's BREATHE. Just chill. It will happen. It will get done. Remember to enjoy life in the meantime. This means not every weekend has to include construction.  In case you don't know DIY remodeling can take a little bit of time. oh. I mean a lot of time. When I first started blogging this fact left big gaps in my blogging timeline. So to fill in the blanks I began to blog about the other things I love! Now Thistles and Twigs is a happy, lighthearted place where I share fashion ideas, home decor (you have to DO something with these spaces once they're done you know...)  and life with my sweet little family! Let me introduce them to you.

This is my first born Gwen.

 She's 4 and starting kindergarten this year! She's sweet and silly and tender and I love her to pieces. She also has amazing hair. I have no idea where it came from...
This is Ivy our sweet second born.

She's 6 months old and has already brought so much joy to our lives.  She's just now starting to crawl and I love watching our family dynamic flex and bend to adapt to life with 2.
Just look at that gummy smile! How can you not love her!
This is my prince charming, the love of my life the wind beneath my wings... too much? Sorry...I just really love this guy!

 We've known each other for 12 years and been married for a little over 1/2 that.

 He is an amazing husband and father,  He is the muscle behind my extravagant decorating plans and he never ceases to amaze me with what he is able to do. Replace a rotting beam? Sure! Re-plumb a bathroom? No problem! Make countertops out of stainless steel with your bare hands? He's got this.   Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I hope you'll stop by and take a look around but in case that eye candy up there isn't enough to entice you, here is a little something extra. My very first giveaway!!! Since fashion happens to be one of those things I love I've put together a little collection of fall accessories to usher in the new season!! Or drag it in kicking and screaming...where I live it's still pushing 90 degrees everyday...c'mon  already fall!!!!
