|These are hanging over the couch. I've had them for nearly 2 years and never got them up in the old house. New house, new decor--finally!|
It's not all done, of course. There's still the pile of pictures sitting at the top of the stairs:
And Alex is still in his dreary temporary room (the previous owner chose the most unhappy shade of taupe for all the rooms) and sharing space with my craft-room overflow:
Now we just need to do some sanding, some other minor repairs, then paint. I'm looking forward to having Alex back in a sunny, happy-looking room.
And of course, there's still my disaster of a craft room:
In my defense, it hasn't been a priority. It's also my office space, so I've been having to sort, shred, and file three-months worth of paperwork. My former shredder died a screeching death before we moved, and I decided to wait to buy a new one until we were in Oklahoma. So paperwork piled for a few months, in part because I just didn't have time to deal with it. Nightmare. But it's slowly being taken care of, and I hope to have this space finished (minus painting) by the end of the week.
Then there's our newest item for the living room:
The baby cage! This thing has made my life so much easier! I can set Alex down and get stuff done, knowing that he's safe and secure. He enjoys it, too, as no one is pulling him off of things and telling him no. And the cats adore it, as it means no one is speed-crawling after them! It's a win-win for every member of this household.
|Would you believe he's 9 months old already?!|
