Home, Sweet Home

Here she is! Our New Old House



Come on in, let me show you around . . .



Living Room . . . a little work to do with the walls, maybe the floor


This is one of my favorite parts of the house

That skeleton key hangs next to the doorknob! And really works! Someone said it probably works for all the doors in the house. Haven't checked yet, but I'll let you know!



If you ever had a house with this kind of a latch, you know you lived in the country. I love it, too! I don't know what it is with me and doorknobs with this house. But just wait, I've got more to come!

We enlisted the kids' help in taking down the wallpaper. . . . They had a blast!!!


The Foyer before . . .



and after our little demo project!

Did I mention, they REALLY liked destroying the walls? They really did! That's my sister-in-law cleaning up the mess. Isn't she GREAT?!

A prize for the first person to accurately guess which twin that is!

More to come!

Marvelous! My boys like tearing off wallpaper, too. Sometimes they get a little ahead of themselves ("No, we're not doing the kitchen until next month!").

Congratulations on your new home...

oh wow...you have such an amazing PORCH! Congrats on the house. Looks like a dollhouse and I'm looking forward to seeing what you do to finish up those walls!

I love, love, love the house! I understand your doorknob fetish...not too many houses these days have those type of doorknobs with all the history behind them. I can't wait to see how y'all fix up this beauty! (a little Texas vernacular for you there) And as for the twin, I am going with Luke...
Congratulations on the new house!
