Did You Wonder if I'd Ever Write a Blog Post Again?

Did you wonder?  I sure did.  With Facebook and Instagram I can post photos quickly and easily.  Blog posts require thought and grammar and I prefer to have my hands full of paint or sanding a tabletop.  But, I realize that I haven't shown you the kid's bedrooms and sometimes I want to say more than a FB post or Instagram is appropriate for. 

My home was on a historic home tour this past weekend.  I didn't go crazy.  I was tired becaause I worked on my house for days (I took 3 days of off work) but I enjoyed every minute of it.  I only hated that my feet got sore before I got what I wanted done.  And the best part of it was that the house was so clean I couldn't help but take a ton of pictures to document it. 

One of my favorite projects was switching Emma and Tom's rooms last summer.  Emma needed the larger room because she has way more stuff - my goodness girls have junk.  Plus, both rooms really needed a good, deep down scrub down. 

I love both rooms equally.  They were both old enough to know what they like and they contributed to the design of each room. Because Tom is the oldest I thought I would showcase his room first.  He is my kindhearted, hard working, dedicated, smart, funny as ever son who LOVES fishing.  He plans his whole life around fishing...and Hematite football.  And I'm ok with that because both are good for him.  Every day I thank God for those two kids. They get me.  They tease me about my craziness but seem to know where I am coming from because they love clean and orderly and matching just as much as I do.  (I apologize for the crappy photos.  I use my iPhone and my talent is not in photography.)


Yes, those are the stickers still on the piping we used for the legs. What a bugger to get off!!

This is the "small" closet for our house.  The man who built our house owned a clothing store and I figure he had lots of clothing to store  -- for 1935 it's amazing how large they are.
