!!! I have heard him do this on the phone, and your description of it is so vivid.

Anna, you are such a neat-o mama. I can't wait to go on the virtual tour. Must change a dipe now, but will be back shortly.

Beautiful

I am envious of your built-ins, your art work and lack of clutter.

I'm going to have to hire her to teach me how to have such a nice house (and to make me some cool art!). LOL! I'm ashamed to have ever had her over at my filthbox.

Seriously, you have a beautiful home. If you weren't so nice I'd have to hate you.

I first saw it when I came in response to her plea for help in cleaning her house as she was morning-sick. Her house was cleaner than the one I had just left. (my own)
I am mortified about this!!! So embarrassed... I had managed to get it partially together when you came, and just thought I'd take the opportunity to get the floors swept b/c vacuuming was impossible for me. Especially since it turned out that our 400 lb. vacuum was partially plugged at the time. I'm so sorry. Please forgive me.

Don't be embarrased! You're a fine inspiration!!!

You inspired me to start hard-core nesting last night And to join the April decluttering challenge! I cleaned out my junk drawers last night!

Forgive you? For having a clean house while concurrently vomiting hourly?! Hmmm. I really do love a good resentment. Especially one that lasts....hmmm.

Okay. I'll forgive you. But only cause its Lent! Anything else you want to get it before Lent ends in 8 days? Take advantage of some good Catholic guilt? Anyone?

Seriously while your house does make me embarassed about my own, I you for sharing those photos. I wish there were more pictures out there of how a lived-in house can be beautiful and charming.

(Now, if only I could find pictures of a charming home that was made out of a stupid box house like I live in. I'm beginning to suspect that only older homes with nooks and crannies can ever look really good.)

Stupid box-house here! Not close to charming yet, but we're working on it.

Nah. This was cool. It's a privilege to be allowed in someone else's home.

Thanks so much for sharing your home with us! Looking at your pictures was a great inspiration to me. I'm going to have to come back to this thread every few days to remind myself what I'm working toward.

Thank you!

The bunk bed...

Hi!

I loved your house as well

I have a question if you don't mind. I love your kids' bunkbed. Could you share with us where you got it and if it was expensive (if you don't mind).

I'd love something like this for my boys.

Thanks

Those are your paintings?! Love them. Besides the neutral colored walls and comfy/homey yet organized decorating the art work really stood out and fit in well.

I like your design style; neutral walls with splashes of colours, art and plants all over!
