All Settled In
For several weeks I have been working on transforming our home into more than just a living space. We have lived here over five years and like many older homes it has needed it's fair share of repairs. Slowly we are turning this house into our home. This has happened following a change of heart which greatly helps the way you view your home! I intentionally had chosen to not call this house my true home because I had no intentions of living here for very long from the moment it was purchased. It was not purchased as a permanent home and I was becoming more and more steamed up about it the longer we lived here. There is nothing wrong with the house, it's just that it is in town and I wanted to live the dream... in the country. Instead of wishing away perfectly good time waiting for the dream I decided to live here and be happy and live the dream either in town or in the country. Either way I was going to live. So naturally along with that decision came changes and the first of which is color! I am a visual person and have to have color in my life and the absence of color on the walls while we were working on the house needed to change immediately if I was going to call this house my home. So it happened. We did a room shuffle and painted and now I have a very functional and wonderful sewing room with plenty of room to teach my daughters how to sew, and host my cherished friends that come to sew as well each week. There is even room for a dollhouse nestled away into the corner for my daughter. There are plenty of shelving to hold books, and scrapbook supplies as well.
