A very warm welcome

Hello there. I guess I’m not quite sure where to start with this blog… so I’ll try and start from the beginning.

On August 12th I will sign the papers on my very first home, which is terribly exciting and scary. There’s wallpaper to be taken down, walls to be painted, insulation to be added, gutters to be hung… and I have no idea where to start. All I know is I want it to be cozy, and warm, and inviting, and colorful.

This blog will serve as an organizational tool for me, a reminder of the work I have to do and plan to do, and a place to gather all my scattered thoughts on what I should be doing.

For the next 17 days, as I attempt to patiently wait to sign on the dotted line I will be doing the following:

  • packing and cleaning my current apartment
  • hoarding any and all furniture I can gather for free
  • researching gutters and insulation and pool management
  • picking color themes and imagining furniture that is nowhere to be found

I’ll tell you about one room a day until I move, and all my fluttering plans and thoughts for it… so stay tuned for the madness!

Our 3 bedroom, 1.5 bath split level ranch

Just looking at the front yard of the house there’s a bazillion things to do, but with our move in mid August I’m going to try and focus on the inside first. New England weather will take over in just a few months and it’ll be far too cold and rainy and snowing and gross to worry about our lack of a walkway, the bareness the exists without hedges, the lack of shutters…

  1. I love that you can see thru the mess and clutter mmmmmm seems that I recall pa pa and mom not being able to see what our home would look like when I finshed fixing up ! S.E.L.F. you are my clone.

  2. So excited for you! Isn’t the laying in bed dreaming of decorating ideas fun? Love your color scheme ideas. It must be in the blood the way we can find treasures in the trash! Nothing in our home came from the showroom floor. (unless you count the tv!) Have fun!
