The Homestead.

Oh, hi! Come on in!

Super 60's entry way fixture.

Congratulations basket from our real estate agent!

First dinner in the new house- Champagne and pizza.

Our pink fridge.

Minty delicious kitchen. Gas stove!

Living/ dining/ record listening room. Look how grown up it looks! Look how much sun there is!

The pink hall that is REALLY growing on me.

Our amazing coral-tiled bathroom. Wall to wall medicine cabinet and above shower storage!

More bedroom pictures soon...

Back yard! Cherry, spruce and oak tree.


More back yard.

My studio!

Laundry room!

Shawn's studio! Look at all that storage!

Oh hi!

So, we moved and stuff...I was going to post some pictures of the new homestead, but have yet to locate the camera cable to transfer photos.

I'll get to it!

Top 10 things I LOVE about our- that's right OUR- new house:

1) Carved oak front door.
2) Bedroom large enough to house bed, night stands and dressers AND allow room for dressing- ALL IN ONE ROOM! Who knew?
3) Light! Glorious, glorious sunlight! In all rooms!
4) Double glazed windows! Drafts are a thing of the past!
5) Mint green kitchen with 1950s fridge. At first, I wasn't 100% sold on the mint. But I love it now. The fridge is completely impractical due its small stature, power suckage (and freon leakage, I'm sure) but the vintage lover in me ADORES it in all its cream and Hollywood pink-ness, and will be sad when we inevitably have to replace it.
6) Finished laundry room! Finished basement! Finished studios!
7) As of today, for the first time in my adult life, a bathroom with an outlet. No more extension cords to dry my hair! I kind of want to buy a curling iron just to celebrate!...and, of course, awesome 60s coral red tiles!
8) The new grown-up living room. Thank-you, Ikea and Ikea Stockholm via parental unit generosity and saved gift certificates!
9) A functional, tidy backyard! THE POSSIBILITY OF A GARDEN!
10) .....and finally, NO MORE LANDLORDS. If we find someone randomly creeping around the backyard, we just call the police!

Goodbye, little rental house! You were our first house, and in spite of your myriad issues (MYRIAD), we did love you a bunch, made you our home, and had some wonderful times.

Now go listen to "Sun in an Empty Room" by the Weakerthans. Close the door. And move on to the new chapter!


Pictures soon. Ish.
