under construction

i love to decorate and redecorate. you see, up there, where i tell about myself/my blog, it says that. and that is what i intended to talk about most of the time on this blog since it is my passion. but maybe you have noticed a decline in that area. ?? well, maybe you haven't. but i have. and the truth is, there really has been a decline in that area around here. because since august we have been preparing to do some major changes around here. like scaffolding and plastic walls and moving out for a week kind of changes. so i guess i have had to put a lot of my tinkering on hold. why paint a wall when you know it could very well be torn down? why make a curtain when you aren't sure the lighting will be the same in the room after the remodeling? so i have been patient. this kind of stuff takes a lot longer than i thought. and i continue to be patient, because we are still three weeks away from demolition day. i am very excited and i will try to let you in on some of our plans as soon as we get more sure about them (the fun ones, we are pretty sure about the boring ones). so...i look forward to filling you in on our progress. i have a feeling it will get pretty interesting. :)

I have no idea how I found your blog, but I absolutely love your pictures that show how you decorated your home! We've just had all our windows replaced, and are now working on an addition. I was excited to read here that you're going to be posting some more on your remodel/decorating! I'm sure I'll find ideas!

Wow, moving-out-for-a-week kinds of changes are a very big deal! Imagine the creative canvas for decorating that you will have when the heavy-lifting of the remodel is done. :)
