New Home!

So it's been a while since I've not only wrote here, but also listing new projects in general. Kinsey and I bought our first home in October of this past year and have been busy doing various projects and such. We were pretty lucky in that the house we bought was in really good condition and recently remodeled. Most of the walls were painted in colors we would've picked ourselves. We didn't really have to spend time ripping up carpets and repainting the walls. Here's a picture of one of my favorite rooms (obviously this was before we moved anything in!), the dining room.

One room that is still a "work in progress" is one of the upstairs rooms. This room is to be Kinsey's craft/collage/music room. The walls as you can see were just a simple shade of white which kind of made the whole room seem a lot smaller than it is.

Yesterday we just decided to go ahead and paint. So we headed off to our local Home Depot and picked out a warm brown color. Here's a picture of one of the walls painted in the final color:

We're quite pleased with the final outcome.

And here's a look of a new design I'll be posting in our shop this evening:

Beth! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love the photos of your house and the new paint color. I have to tell you about a very weird coincidence - last night Maizie and I were talking about YOU and then you wrote! How strange is that!?
Maizie is growing up - she is very tall - and she has her own blog now
www.noodlesandnoodles.blogspot.com (I am not going to hyperlink that so you have to type it!)
We will try to stop by the bookstore soon. Also, I am starting a new etsy shop for custom horse posters that I am designing so I will send a link if I ever get that up and running - you know how long this stuff takes with real world commitments in the way! lol!
I love your lobster embroidery! Maizie is admiring all your etsy things this very second...she keeps saying..."oh,wow!"
