- I hope I am not the only person who does this. My grandmother's house is incredibly dear to me. My grandfather designed it & helped build it. While he did not wield all the trucks & hammers that put it together, we generally say he built it himself. Over the years, not much has changed as far as interior decor goes, but recently, some changes have been made in bed sizes, wall colors, and drapery. It gets me thinking about what it might look like in the future, after my grandmother has passed. I realize this is kind of morbid and I really don't want anyone to think that I want my grandmother to DIE so that we can renovate the interior. In fact, I was hoping to take a weekend trip up sometime this spring or summer & offer to paint some of the bedrooms for her (she told me she wants to change the colors on the 2nd floor). This post got me thinking about the style of the place. I'm not a huge fan of mid-century design, but the colors in the bedroom image & tile in the eating area are really appealing to me.
- There is no such thing as bullying - a good read. If the title makes you go, "UM EXCUSE ME", read it because you will be pleasantly surprised.
- 5 Warnings Signs Your Home Isn't Working For You - This doesn't mean you have to move, but maybe your "systems" need some re-working. I am spending a lot of time on Apartment Therapy lately. The homing bug has bit. I am totally not browsing Craigslist for houses... Okay, my parents are doing some renovation stuff so that is probably a huge factor. Mama, if you want help painting next weekend, let me know & hand me a roller!
Oh yeah, we installed a pull-up bar this weekend. I can't wait to get ripped. One pull-up is my goal for the year. That may sound tiny, but DO YOU KNOW HOW HARD PULL-UPS ARE?
