As you can see, we still need to put up the trim and finish the doorway into the dining room. We've spent the past week trying to put stuff away ... I am always amazed at how much stuff there is to move, sort and get rid of. The house is starting to feel like home and we've worked out (hopefully) most of the kinks ... :) My fingers are crossed.

I like the white curtains in the dining room ... still trying to decide which white ones to use.
I need to recover the dining room chairs and am leaning towards black and white ... maybe I'll cover them in different black and white prints?

Hot out of the oven ... (brownies on the counter). I had to try out our new stove and so I made brownies. Oh they were ultra yum - we ate them on paper plates and enjoyed every bite!
Everything is subject to change :) ...
It's been a while since I had a moment to post anything new here on the blog ... We moved last weekend and it's been pure madness ever since! :)
This house was vacant for a year and a half and had no running water and let's just say - it's been a wild adventure.
Special thanks to my Dad and Mom for all their help. We had fun hanging the curtain rods and getting things ready for the 'move in'.

Men at work :) ... It's looking good!
Carpet name: Bread basket
Special thanks to Paul and his 3 boys for doing such a wonderful job laying the carpet.

These are the stairs leading to the upstairs ... They get new carpet tomorrow!
A room in the basement - ready for carpet. Can you smell that new paint? ...
These are the stairs going up ... they have these big trim pieces along the sides that are full of layers of old paint. Half of it was chipped away so we decided to scrape all the paint off the trim pieces so they would be ready for new paint and the carpet.
