Well here it is. . . Im moving!

I have been reluctant to post about it, because ive not been sure about it, but i am officially moving. . . my residence that is!  Right now we live right on the highway, and with two small ones who love to play outside. . . that is scarry!! And I know im weird, but ive been wanting a big, old house. I love older homes. My hubby found me one back in the country on a big farm, and yet still only about 15min from where im at now. . . really cool! Only it hadnt been lived in in over 2 years, so it was nastier than i thought, and smelled terrible, we've been working on it night and day for a while now! lol! i wanted to share some pics. . . its a really big roomy house but you cant tell in the pics, it is an older home but its in really really good shape structurally.

The kitchen has these really heavy duty solid wood cabinets that i love.

Im sure you notice the abundance of cleaning supplies lol! The Living room, is a good size, but it was a mess.  The carpet was horrendous, and the fireplace is too.  Im going to build me a box fireplace mantle with a drying rack to just cover the entire existing fireplace up, ill post pics of that when i get it done. . . it could be a while.

Im having trouble gettin my pics to go where i want them, this is when we ripped up the carpet. . . hubby is hard at work trying to salvage the hardwood we found underneath. . . i LOVE old hardwood!

closeup of what we found its 1" i believe

it'll take alot of work in here, but i believe i can make it look really good!

Well im off to get some more done! wish me luck! Oh yea first i have to make a doll that i PROMISED someone id make them weeks ago and havnet had time, just a cute annie type, my own pattern of course. I'll try and post pics today when she's done.
