As is often the case in houses with plaster walls, at some point, instead of repairing or replacing them, the previous homeowners put 60s/70s paneling over them. Now, I am not one that blanket hates 1970s paneling. I just believe it belongs in a 1970s house, not a 1920s Craftsman. Thankfully they didn’t do a […]
So yesterday I showed you the first floor of our new house. This morning I’m showing you most of the second floor. It’s a quirky floor, and we’re using it in a unique way. Also as mentioned yesterday, after just watching so many rounds of the One Room Challenge, this time I’m joining in. I’m […]
We’ve been here for just over a month already, but our new house still feels like somewhat of a college dorm. We left almost all of our furniture behind at the Victorian to keep the house staged. So here is our fairly bare new house! I’m so excited that there’s a formal entry, and that the […]
But first, an update on our houses: there is no update on the Victorian. Sadly, it still belongs to us. And we are still loving the new house. There is considerably more work to be done than we originally thought, but we’re happy about that; it will be fun. So far, we’ve just done minor things like paint, […]

A couple posts ago, I mentioned how I was going to re-make my first apartment in miniature for the Undersized Urbanite dollhouse contest. The contest closes tonight, and it’s as finished as it’s going to get. I couldn’t leave out my sweet Border Collie that lived there with me. I shared before a couple of […]
A not-too-complicated DIY sliding-door pantry built into an empty living room wall.
Would make a great bedroom closet too!
The Undersized Urbanite dollhouse contest is officially open today. If you’re interested in joining, just hop over and add your link (you can join before you actually start your project!). This year, I’m going to re-create my first apartment. It was the second floor of a carriage house turned into a cute little loft. The […]
I hadn’t realized how much the house had changed since the blog was last updated. I took new photographs of several rooms a few weeks ago, before my family came to visit. Like the last time they came, dad helped a lot with those little projects that usually take me forever. Here is what our dining […]
