Best. News. Yet!

My contact with city transit stopped by the house to let me know the bus stop in front of our house is being moved--Yay! In fact, this particular bus line is being moved off our block completely--AMAZING!

Front Door

So here she is, in all her glory! ;)

I actually plan to add the off-white around the sidelights and think it would be super cool to have these pieces (in-door mail slot, doorbell) from Signature Hardware:

And just for kicks, here's the "before" shot of the door:

CHRISTMAS!!! and more

Even with a new baby, I still had to do a little decorating since this is our house's first proper Christmas in a very long time! I really really really wanted to put lights, etc. up outside but the house is still being painted, porch floor still being finished, and the front yard is trying to grow grass. I promise next year I will "wow" you... So anyways, here are a few places of Christmas flare in our very old house:

dining room 


parlor - 9 1/2 foot tree!

Exterior doors are also being painted. Back and are side doors finished--we even have two rocking chairs on the side porch now! The front door paint started today but is by no means finished.
