"Hello, everyone! It's Waldo here. I'm just sportin' a couple new colors - you like 'em? As you take the tour of my new house, I challenge you to just try and find me! I'm in every picture. Good luck!"
|Waldo, ready to hide.|
other photo of the front of our home. Haha. We needed some brown in our landscaping for the full Tucson experience. ;)
The front entryway.
Coat closet on the left, guest bath in the center, guest bedroom on the right.
A closer look at the guest bathroom. Lacking a shower curtain and rug, but we'll get there eventually. :)
The guest bedroom/sewing room/library. Don't all jump up to make reservations at once! ;) Until we get some furniture, this room will be designated as the
junk boxes-of-our-wonderful-things room. But, we're working to change that.
Leaving the guest bedroom. Seeing the main hallway and the garage door.
But, we're stepping in to see Lincoln's room first. No log cabin decorations are up yet. Those among about 500 other projects are still in the works.
The garage. Beastly-er on the left, Weasly (the jeep) straight ahead, but wait - where's Waldo?
Heading back into the house from the garage.
The living room. See those "new" stained armchairs? I'm really excited about them. We bought them from Tucson's D.I. for $10 each. My mom is an AMAZING seamstress. She has a gift akin to the Midas touch, except hers turns any fabric item into beautiful draperies, table runners, dresses, vests, baby bow ties - you name it. I will be spending some time with my family in Reno the week after my brother gets married, and we will be working together to make slipcovers for those armchairs. I can't wait to make them - and to pass along my new found knowledge to any/all of you who may be interested in giving your furniture a facelift.
The kitchen. Do you see the dishwasher?! I'd hate to sound like someone from this website and suggest that anybody needs a dishwasher to live. But, is it ok if I say that I really enjoy having one - a lot?
A closer up kind of blurry picture of the kitchen space. The box in the left corner is filled with decorations we have yet to hang/place/display.
The dining space and sliding glass door to the backyard. Haha. I can't help but think of Bruegel's Landscape with the Fall of Icarus when I look at this photo.
A fuzzy picture from our back porch. Our plant, resurrecting itself from the dead. We have a great view of the sunrise each morning.
The linen closet.
The laundry closet. The washer and dryer came with the place. They seriously rock at getting Lincoln's cloth dipes clean. I kind of get excited to do laundry now.
The master bedroom.
The master bathroom. Ta da! There you have it - our new house! We love having our own place.
"Hey - you found me! Hope you had as much fun finding me as I did hiding!"
