Originally, I was going to keep a personal blog for family and friends, and then a separate blog for house and decor stuff. I decided that I better get really good at one before trying two. This was a post that I had posted on that blog. I named it Gypsy Cottage because I thought that suited us and the way we are living. However, with the peace I feel over finding this new home and Hubby’s new job, I don’t want to be a gypsy anymore. So, I’m just gonna post everything right here for everyone to see.

I promised some B&A’s so here we go. Nothing too fancy except some paint, tile and crown moulding. That doesn’t include finishing the basement. Please keep in mind that I did not take these pictures with the intent to share with the world. I will do better from now on, I promise. We are selling this house and I thought I would leave the new homeowner pictures of what it looked like when we bought it. A small scrapbook that includes the pics I am going to post here. Does that sound corny? I would love to have something like that, especially if it was an older house. I will probably do it anyway. I’ll never know if they thought it was corny or not. What do you think?
P.S. I realized as I was going through my pictures of the house that I really did not do a good job of taking “after” pics. For some of them, I ended up using the ones from when we put the house on the market. Keep in mind that a lot of “fluff” had been removed to de-personalize.
Things I love about Prairie Rose:
His/hers closets in master
Larger front porch
Big master suite
Dedicated homeschool space
Things I hope to have in next home:
Larger dining space (to seat 10)
Mostly one level living
Larger secondary bedrooms
Less builder “character”
Wrap around porch (one can dream can’t she?)
I haven’t looked at this list since I wrote it the first time, but the cool thing is that the home we are buying has mostly everything on both lists…yay!
