Humble Home tour #2

  ***SIGH***
That's how I feel when I think about trying to sell our home & move.  It's been a really long journey...
 It's funny to see how much has changed!  I've been  slowly but surely working on the living room all year long
....here's the post I did last year when we had it up for sale.
When the photographer came this week to take photos for our listing online
 she comes in the front door and says--
 "WOW this home has got some personality!"  

I've decided to take that as a compliment ;)
She had some very nice things to say so I'm pretty sure that's how she meant it...
I didn't tell her that most of our home is furnished with "trash" finds!!!!
 It's nice to see it all clean and neat looking...
we have two small children
I assure you it never looks like this!!!
 We're planning a trip to an outdoor flea market tomorrow and I have a few things I'm on the hunt for...
 I'd love to find some kitchen canisters or maybe some new pyrex or fire king pieces...
We'll see!
 Our hall bathroom with my $1 auction mirror...
 Here's the main reason we'll have to move eventually...
our son and daughter's shared room...
Mighty is going to be outgrowing her baby crib soon....
 But they actually share the room really well and I have to admit that's how I'd prefer for my kids to grow up...
 Our room...
 Second bathroom...
 Our front porch...
I decided on some ferns this year....hopefully they live all summer.
 And the backyard...
at least this year everything is green in the photos.  
Last year they took photos in February and it was all brown and grey looking....
We'll see what happens....
I have a fun piece of furniture I've been working on this week...I'm excited to finish it up and post some photos.
  
More to come...
