We survived the move but can we survive the unpacking phase? I am so tired of unpacking and my back is killing me! We still have things in storage so those items will eventually be brought over to the new house. The house is being updated so we are dealing with that, too. The walls and trimwork used to be white and now the walls have been painted a neutral shade of tan and the trimwork, doors and cabinets have been painted a cream color. Several light fixtures have been changed out and we are working on cabinet knobs, faucets, etc. Sorry, you won't see many French style crystal chandeliers in my home because we live in Texas and it's hot, hot, hot...so you will see lots of ceiling fans!
The new home before the move. We inherited a basketball goal and a yard full of weeds :-(
New light fixture and sink cabinet in the Powder Bath. A new mirror and faucet is coming soon. All the door hardware is being changed from polished brass to antique nickel.
New ceramic tile in the Entryway. Before:
Yikes! Too much stuff.
My new studio!

I found these pics on the computer today. My daughter, Savannah, is always taking self portraits of herself for her MySpace page!
If you ever see a teenagers' MySpace page then you will see lots of photos like this one, lol!
Our son went to Colorado for the summer :-( My brother lives near Breckenridge and he offered to let my son stay with him and his wife for the summer and work, work, work! When my son found out he could make twice as much money as he could working here, he jumped at he chance to go (that boy is "money motivated", like father, like son!). He left last Friday and we miss him so much! My husband and I were worried sick about him because he drove his car there by himself (he's 17). I think my husband called him about once an hour on the way there (to check on him) but he arrived safely! Man, the years go by so fast...I can't believe he drove to CO by himself! I wasn't home when Christian left so I asked Savannah to take some photos of him packed and ready to go. I expected one or two photos but she ended up taking more than a couple. She did a really good job and she took several photos that told a little story....
Loading the car. All the necessities including his computer and guitars!
The car is packed.
Saying goodbye to our cat, Pepper.

Pulling out of the driveway (I told you she captured every moment :-)
Driving down the street. Bye Christian!
I am taking a break from unpacking today to work on some orders and I will get everything in the mail ASAP. More makeover photos coming soon! Have a fabulous weekend!
