A Few Tidbits For You


We came, we saw, we bought. Thursday morning we closed on our new house. It's a great little house, about half the size of the King Charles home. As ya'll know we found another 1950s ranch (with an underground home heating oil tank that has been removed). Thursday morning we did the final walk through and accepted the property. This lot is less than half the size of our last house, with more landscaping! Check out the pictures, it's very overgrown and in dire need of some pruning.



The front and back yards are full of projects that will need the attention of Kate's green thumb. It also seems as though we've encroached upon a squirrel that doesn't take kindly to four-legged guests. The squirrel just hangs out in the trees chirping, barking, and hissing at the dogs. It's driving them mad!

Yikes, we look pretty rough in that picture, Jon! One might think we had been sitting in a car for 50 hours!

Congratulations! It looks very cosy and beautiful. You all are going to transform that yard like nothing else.

And Kate, I think you look lovely. You both look so happy. Makes me want to pick up my kids and move them out of LA.

homestead harvest part deux!

i heart your midcentury-modern lifestyle. the backyard looks like a little oasis, and - i'm sure - with a little time, you and the squirrel will develop a mutual understanding.

Hello Les, the house is waiting for you to visit...

Liz, who is paying you to compliment me with my wacky hair?

Welcome to Idaho, Melissa! I've already found a huge consignment furniture store with lots of mid-century stuff that I would love to pack in the place. Alas, I made it out with only a pair of small dressers. (grin)

I wanted to add that the landscaping actally looks very nicely sculptured to me. But regardless, I totally look forward to the "after"pics.
