Is it just me, or did this summer fly by? We had every intention of starting work on the exterior of our home this summer, but due to some other unexpected expenses (pest removal and car repairs...fun!), it looks like it's going to have to wait until next summer (boo!). But we did start looking at colors and have at least narrowed it down to blue. On the bright side, I guess now we have another year to decide on the exact shade! And I do believe we have at least rid the house of all of the critters which had invaded it and gotten the holes sealed up tight (knocking vigorously on wood), so that is definitely a good thing.
Since we haven't been able to do much with our house, I thought the least I could do was redecorate this blog. It was looking pretty bland, and our home is full of character, so shouldn't the blog reflect that? I was debating what changes to make to the blog when it dawned on me: The Flower House. When we first looked at this house last summer, little G called it "the flower house" because of the floral wallpaper lining the entire entryway, stairway, and hallway upstairs.
Over the course of the next few months, whenever we talked about the house, we would call it "the flower house". The name just stuck, and seemed very fitting. Now, I'm not typically a fan of wallpaper, but for some reason this wall paper has really grown on me. I think a large part of that is because little G was so excited about "the flower house." So, what better background to use for this blog than the very wallpaper that gave this house its name? Hope you like the new look!
