2 Bedroom Apartment Tour! Grandmillennials Decorating – Granny Chic!

2 Bedroom Apartment Tour! Grandmillennials Decorating – Granny Chic!

My 2 Bedroom Apartment Tour Update – and how I decorated on a tight budget with thrift store items and a little help from Walmart. I take you to the thrift store with me… A new fresh start at almost 66! Desi and I moved into a bigger apartment in the hills of Western Michigan and it was so fun to decorate with the new Day Bed that Desi has claimed as his own. I also wanted to share with you personal information about my children and grandchild and how it has affected our Thanksgiving and Christmas plans. I want to reach out to all of you that may be alone this holiday season to share Christmas with me and Desi…and show the world how grateful we are we survived 2020, and although we are so deeply sad for those good people we have lost, it is our obligation to go on and do up Christmas as big as we can…even if we find ourselves alone…we are not alone.
Please know I love you all…and thank you for all you do for me and Desi. Every week, you lift our spirits and remind us to be better.

Thank you for your love and prayers for Bill and thank you for being sharing this journey with me.
Love you to the moon and back,
xxx Susan & The Dez

  2. vera bozinovski on June 7, 2022 at 11:13 pm

    Hello from Canada 🇨🇦. When I bought my little condo, everybody was telling me to throw everything and buy everything new. I looked at your home and I saw how you decorated with everything you loved and made you feel good. Susan your home makes me feel good. Thank you for allowing me to see your beautiful home. 👩‍💻

  3. Verna Bryant on June 7, 2022 at 11:13 pm

    You have a beautiful apartment.

  4. Deborrah Trueman on June 7, 2022 at 11:14 pm

    That’s how I feel about antiques stores!! Fun Escapism

  5. Alocinder on June 7, 2022 at 11:14 pm

    Like so many people, I too thought, well, if I’m going to be dining alone this Christmas, I’m going all out to Christmas Joy this place up. Face it, most of us had more alone time to ourselves anyway. I played ol’ school through to the most current of Christmas tunes as I was enjoying the delicious smells of ALL of the traditional Christmas foods baking in the ovens. One Christmas project I felt compelled to make was a large peace sign all covered in lights of every color. I bought 3 very inexpensive hula hoops, tied them together here and there, and then wrap string around the thee hoops as I better secured them together. I took some flexible hosing I’d bought (VERY inexpensive) at Home Depot, and cut the pieces I needed in order to complete the peace sign. Keep in mind, I live right across the street from our beautiful sate capitol and capitol park where protests, riots, national guard and the like were a daily presence. With all of that going on I can say, at least their was some good that has come out of this tragedy called Covid. It took the work force shut down from Covid in order for all of us to take part in the marches against racial inequality/ injustice, although I took no part in violent behavior or destruction of property. As soon as the feel of the crowd would change, that, for me was my signal to go home. Back at home, I covered my HUGE peace sign in lights and hung it in my sliding glass door window. Three days later the young lady whose window faces my balcony (where I’d hung the peace sign) , she had a lit up sign in her window that said ”HOPE”. Just a few days after that I was beaming every day as I saw neighbors were putting up Christmas lights, even though I’d never seen these folks put up lights before , suddenly many (who had probably gone on Amazon) had purchased lit up ”word lights” and ”lit, word phrases”. It was wonderful. Now folks here do as I always had…why wait until Christmas to put up lights.

    I love your apartment. When I have my own place again, I will organize and decorate it to my taste. Thank you for sharing your beautiful place with us. Have a wonderful week..

  7. Silvia Argent on June 7, 2022 at 11:20 pm

    You still go to the dry cleaners … I thought you down sized and on budget.. hahaha I haven’t been to a dry cleaners in 25 years !

  8. Elvira Gomez on June 7, 2022 at 11:22 pm

    I subscribed to your channel a couple of vídeos ago and you are a total gem, I’m 41 years old and I relate to you 💯 and your voice is very soothing to me. I want you to know that I appreciate you and all the work and care you put into your videos and this is what, I think differs you from most of the YouTubers, the content and the relevance is what’s we, I mean the world needs. Thank you forever 🙏🏽💪🏽💯👍

  9. Gail Rubin on June 7, 2022 at 11:24 pm

    Beautiful video . Just beautiful ❤️

  10. Victoria Sagraves on June 7, 2022 at 11:25 pm

    Loved this today! Your bedroom is beautiful! So inspiring! Desi is so cute!

  11. t s on June 7, 2022 at 11:26 pm

    I absolutely believe in signs. Many times they are in ME and I haven’t taken the time or energy to recognize things going on outside of me that relate to the inner me. Plus, I like a good, clear sign. Sometimes I would get one that said I’m on the other path. So, pay attention to that still, small voice in your gut and believe in submitting to your intuition. Lovely the way you have found a different style and am changing your style, too.

    Such an incredibly beautiful home ❤️❤️❤️

  14. Mary Rios on June 7, 2022 at 11:30 pm

    My Xmas wishes are good health to my family and everyone. This year I have so much to be thankful for. During Spring, I have dodged another stint put in my heart, my ultrasound for my uterus is good, and only fatty tissue on my breast which is normal. Which is overall a clean bill of health as I’m turning fifty by thanksgiving 😌🙏

  15. Marguerite Mullarkey on June 7, 2022 at 11:30 pm

    You sure feel the need for alot of attention!

  16. lisa fairclough on June 7, 2022 at 11:31 pm

  26. Rita Tharp on June 7, 2022 at 11:46 pm

    Hi Susan. Thank you for sharing.
    Everything is very beautiful.

  27. Bride on June 7, 2022 at 11:47 pm

    (HUG) Your apartment is so beautiful, very welcoming. Thrift store shopping is the best, we get to look at treasured items from past times. When you go into places that everything is new from store there is a cold feeling, even though it is bright and light colored there is no warmth. Love your bedroom lamp the shade is a feast for the eyes. This reminds me of when you’re in your 20’s and girlfriends come over and you can’t wait to show them your new treasures from the thrift store, and you dream together about how you each want to decorate. Life today is different tell – a vision has given us their vision that we can’t afford, million-dollar homes, jags & Mercedes, even the shows tell of perfect families. I love your video and your gorgeous decorating; you make us feel right at home with you & Desi. You are such a beautiful kind spirit. We love you. Enjoy a peaceful time with your puppy, no rushing during December is a blessing.

  28. Verna Bryant on June 7, 2022 at 11:48 pm

    I’m just like you.Its my house and I’ll decorate the way I want too.

  29. Fe Purganan on June 7, 2022 at 11:50 pm

    Everything looks beautiful in your place

  30. Ckap on June 7, 2022 at 11:50 pm

    Your apartment is beautiful. Such a positive reflection of the woman you are. Cozy, warm, inviting and serenity abounds. Like you…it’s lovely..thank you for sharing your home.

  31. Mary Rios on June 7, 2022 at 11:51 pm

    I ❤️ thrift store, specially Salvation Army. Far more different now than back then. Much cleaner and feel high end. You always find gently used clothes, since I’m back shopping in this place I never like to pay full price on housewares and solid wood furnitures. Hardly find good qualities in this day and age, and if you find solid wood, nor stone vases you pay arm and a leg. I like to look at stone organic vases ideas, but shop at a strip store, and paint it with paint and baking soda.

  32. lisa fairclough on June 7, 2022 at 11:52 pm

    Please Susan!! I didn’t know you last Christmas can you inspire us this year,!😉x

  33. Janice Bowman on June 7, 2022 at 11:52 pm

    My focus would of been my bedroom also. Your home is lovely .

  34. BGW on June 7, 2022 at 11:53 pm

    I am very thankful this Thanksgiving for so many things. My sister was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma stage 3 in June, but she is fighting hard to recover and we are praying for remission. My husband had a stroke in September and lost most of his sight, but he is also fighting hard to get stronger and adapt to his new world. This Thanksgiving falls on my son’s 47th birthday, we lost him in 2013 to cardiac arrest, but I had 39 wonderful years with him. Sometimes it feels overwhelming, , but I’m still thankful for all my blessings and all the love I have experienced in my 70 years. Happy Thanksgiving to you and darling Desi!!!

  35. Georgia Oblak on June 7, 2022 at 11:53 pm

    I love your 2 bedroom apt. You decorate beautifully. Your home is cozy and warm. God be with you

  36. mathew 10:36 on June 7, 2022 at 11:53 pm

    So lovely thank you. You feel like a friend i haven’t met yet 🙂. Would love to go thrifting with you and a coffee ☕

  37. Georgia Oblak on June 7, 2022 at 11:58 pm

    I so agree with your feeling,about thrift stores. That’s all I shop at. I always wonder about the story behind the treasure I find at thrift stores. I will always be a thrift store shopper

  38. Rosalind Stanley on June 7, 2022 at 11:58 pm

    I’ve said it before , I love your style. I love that you are a maximalist in this era of minimalism. I am a lover of lovely things too inincluding poetry and. music. You are a wonderful example for me. Thank you

  39. katieshealinggarden on June 7, 2022 at 11:58 pm

    As a new subscriber , Im making my way through your youtube Journey . Susan you are such an Inspiration in 101 ways. Your apartment is so very pretty, It makes me want to do better ! ( I used to decorate, sew, crafts, travel for fine. arts……. Life kicked me really bad, and somewhere along the way I lost myself—– My Son , grandson and granddaughter just battled Covid variant last month, Oct 2021, and beat it. Im going to be alone again this year 2021.This will be my first "Real Winter" living Upstate NY … a Tennessee Native gone North. ( long sad story ) ….. maybe you girls have an extra prayer for this 68 year old. xo0

  44. Amy Andrews on June 8, 2022 at 12:03 am

    Desi is such a handsome boy…. I love seeing him. I hope he makes you happy I can’t believe he wouldn’t. Lol. Enjoy your day

  45. Grace L on June 8, 2022 at 12:03 am

    This is October of 2021 and we have Covid issues here again! I spent so much time last year in isolation because of my age and medical condition but through prayer and the support of my family, I have survived, my family also. I just found your site in the wee hours of the morning, my spirit was lifted and I have found a very sweet friend that I so relate to! Your decorating esthetic is so like mine….the beautiful photography woven within your story, so heartwarming! I look forward to many more visits and hope to hear you play, I am also a musician! God bless and thank you for sharing your inspiring story with us!

    Hi Susan ..so nice to watch your videos….I have got ONE Big wish for this coming Christmas……..Would be great if you can do a video especially for Us …on your piano and sing along…….when we where children in the 1950,s. My father used to Play the piano. And we. All sang along. 💐 ❤️🤶🤶🤶🤶🤶🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🍾🥂❤️

  49. Veronica Stevenson on June 8, 2022 at 12:08 am

    I lucked across your channel today and SO ENJOYED listening to your stories and touring your beautiful spaces…I, too, enjoy decorating and enjoy thrifting whenever I am able…I’m nowhere near being a minimalist, but have become more mindful of what I purchase now as I’m one item away from my own Hoarders Episode 🤣😂🤣…However, while I’m careful with what new purchases I make, I’m not in a big hurry to purge because I enjoy the beautiful pieces that help make my house a home too much…My items bring me joy just looking at them; and I believe you’re very similar.

  50. Peacebound1 on June 8, 2022 at 12:11 am

    Desi is absolutely the cutest! Thanks for the video- loved it!
