Home Sweet Home

Well, it's official. Today we signed the papers to buy this townhouse.

Goodbye, rent payments; hello mortgage.

Goodbye, apartment plain white walls; hello ??!!??!!

Decorating seems to have been the hobby (or obsession) of the former owners.

This bathroom is nice.

This one.....isn't. It has a fishing reel shaped toilet paper dispenser, too.

This is the INSIDE of my closet.

This, unfortunately, is the wall of my eat-in kitchen.

On the first of an infinite number of trips to Home Depot, I got a wallpaper steamer ;)


  1. Congratulations. Looks like you will need more in your hands than a tatting shuttle! Good luck!
    Fox : )

  2. Congratulations
    I know it will be alot of work and expense but what a treat to be able to express yourself in your home.

  3. Congratulations on moving into your new home.
    Um that wall paper is rather over the top! It will be great to get it how you want it, best of luck with the decorating.

  4. Looks a lovely house, and it looks like you have some decorating to do. Have a good move.

  5. Congratulations!

  6. Have fun with the steamer! We removed wall paper in the master bedroom of my daughter's house about two months ago... what a pain! We decided the two bathrooms can wait until summer... the summer when she decides to remodel them!

  7. Buh-bye wallpaper, hello PAINT!

    Congratulations - I hope you'll be very happy and enjoy a bit of a tax break!

  8. Congratulations on your new home! It looks like you will be having lots fun transforming those walls. I hope you post pictures of them when done.

  9. ROTFL at the toilet paper holder!! And the faux finishing in the closet!!!

    Congratulations on the new townhouse!! (and your new crafting project ;)

  10. Well, that's going to keep you off the streets for a while! The flowers in the front garden look like they could inspire some tatting designs, once you get the time.

  11. Congrats on the purchase!

    Looks like you have your hands full with the decor but isn't this a great opportunity for your creative juices. Looking forward to seeing the face lift.

  12. Love the glimp into your new home.....I know it is even more lovely than the pictures.....
