House Progress

We're steadily making progress on all the projects around our new house. It feels so great to be able to cross stuff off our list. We decided to put doors onto the den to create a nice big office/quiet place to read. Here's a view of it from the living room.

Here's the space (clutter and all).
Here are the new doors installed! We still need to frost the glass (we're thinking a film maybe?) AND...

... if you hadn't noticed already, we removed the monkey shrine. I'm so relieved it's gone. I had NO IDEA what to put in there.

So, here's the question: do we stain the doors to match the front door and the french doors, or do we paint the new doors white, and paint the french doors white to match (and possibly paint the front door as well).
I would try to find the same white as our new entertainment unit.
What do you think?


Here she is!

dress after

I've had these photos sitting in my camera FOREVER. I was all set to shoot some photos of Lucy actually wearing the dress, but then she fell on her face and got blood all over it (SO sad for her). All the stains came out, but I've yet to actually photograph her wearing it again. So... I figured I'd post what I had, and hopefully I'll be able to snap some shots of her wearing it sometime soon.

But.. just so you know.. she looks totally adorable in it :).

I've been too busy to take any photos recently, but here are a couple that my sister in law, Jes, took during our brief time moving into our new home.

Just So That... don't lose ALL faith in me... just tonight I started a new sewing project! Here's an awful iphone snapshot:

I have all the pieces cut out, and now I just have to find the time to actually sew it all together. It's going to be a pinafore :).
