Our house at six months

We've been in our new house for a little over six months now and it's beginning to seem like home. There's still a lot we need to do before it will be the place we'd like it to be, but for the most part we're pretty comfortable and content. Here's a little tour:

We recently moved the dining room carpet into the living room. I really like how it looks with the red couch, but...
... now we don't have a carpet in the dining room. And, so far, it's been a real challenge to find one that suits our space and blends well with the other rug.

Here's our future remodeling project. I think we might keep the original 1950s mirror, but the cobalt blue tile and powder blue fixtures have got to go!
I look forward to the day when I can call this photo "before."

Here's the kitchen:

And our big jet tub!

Well, it certainly doesn't look like you're a big pack rat, I mean magpie, like me! Everything looks neat as a pin. I love red sofa's and almost bought one two years ago when we were shopping for one for the sitting room. You know, I think the cobalt tile is kinda cool. Maybe just replace the fixtures?

um...just remove that "'" in sofas.

We haven't lived here long enough to accumulate much clutter.

If I didn't move so often I'm sure I'd be a magpie, too. But, as it is, I've had to be selective about which treasures I want to keep hauling around with me.
