We've Been Working, Just Not Blogging

Since we last posted, the backyard has gone from looking like this:


To this:

And we've learned that raking is very good exercise.

Remember the barfy baby blue bedroom?


We painted it the same respectable colors as our bedroom:



We are still touching up, since insulating the built-in dresser was messy.



We also have to go back and repair some of the floor in our bedroom, thanks to Ellie.

She clawed through 150 years' of paint, trying to get at the men working in the basement.

Vandal.

We completed many projects during October and November, and we'll post about them this week.

Your new paint scheme looks so rich and classy, and must better suited to your vintage home! Well done!

As for Ellie ~ that ruthless chaser of virtual turkeys, diabolical demolisher of floors, and notorious, publicly vilified vandal, I say... one look at that pitiful, adorable mug shot and there's not a jury in the land that would convict her!
