Alas, the new house...well my half anyway!

We finally took possession of the house on Tuesday, and Emily and I have been working non-stop day and night taking down wallpaper...you'll see what I mean. We've had Lara and her kids there helping...and they LOVED it. They could destroy something without getting into trouble! Anyway, I'll take some more pictures of the progress as we go. One day, we'll have a liveable house.

OK I had no idea you were getting a new place - look so fun!! I wish I was there to help you!

Lara said...

First of all let me say I love your new look especially the title picture.....very cute! Your little helpers are also very darling. The pictures of the wallpaper do not do it justice. It must be seen in person to fully appreciate it's loveliness.

I agree with Lara...no one will ever understand!

Melin,
I enjoyed all the wall papaer variations. That previous owner sure put a lot of LOVE into that house with all that lace and patterned paper. Looks like you have your work cut out for you! It will look so nice once you get finished. can't wait to see more pictures!

Ok so fun! What's with the green trees/feathers or whatever they are? Who were these people? Wish I were there to help!

Oh I'm so glad you posted pictures so I could see all the lovely wallpaper. Also, I love your new title block. Who did the picture. I love it.
