Don't mind the mess, I still have boxes everywhere.

The bosses are watching squirrels:

The Dining Table I bought and the Laundry with my pantry shelves. Grandma's Desk that pulls out to a banquet table, yes, I am using it.

There you have it, the long awaited pictures.
That is the bed I bought on a whim.

Love it!

GG, I couldn't see the pics on the DC app on the iPad, but when I went to the "regular" site, there they were!

So do I. And I love the bathroom sink. No wonder you snapped up that bed. It is a beauty!

PF, I just want to wish you and Shrek all the happiness the two of you deserve in your lovely new home.

I have always told my kids since they were just barely old enough to understand the message. "Because it is family. And that is all that matters in the end." And come Thanksgiving Day, you and Shrek can live that message.

And here are a couple of angels to watch over you and Shrek.

Thanks, Everyone.

The kitties think it's great, the sun actually comes in and they can lay in the sun beams. More room for them to race around the house when the urge takes them. Lots of hidey holes, too.

Will be putting some BarTop around the bathroom sink, the edges of the mosaic are sharp and Shrek has torn his hand on them. Otherwise we just need some touch up painting on the inside. Change the cabinet hardware and we are set. We need to repaint the exterior and remove the aluminum awning over the front window, I would also like to redo the front porch, getting rid of the fake wrought iron and building some pillars. The yard needs lots of work.

Don't bother making a list of things to do for your new home because you'll never run out of work.
