Twelve years later...

We bought our tiny little bungalow twelve years ago and it came with some pretty incredible lace curtains in the dining room and living room.  I never liked them.  When Finn was about two and we had lived in the house for nearly three years it finally dawned on me...I live here and I can take the wacky lace curtains down! I know...duh, but I am the same woman who tiptoed around the house for thirty days after we bought it because I didn't feel like I owned it.  Paying the mortgage took care of that initial anxiety and three years later I finally had mustered the courage to rip down the curtains.  We were left with some terribly outdated mini blinds on the windows.  When we replaced all the windows in the house I actually re-hung the sad blinds and continued hating them for the years to come.  It only took twelve years, but this week I FINALLY trashed those blinds and hung some lovely curtains in their place!
I have my eye on a chair for this room and I'd love a new lamp behind the love seat, but for now I am just enjoying how fun it can be when our little house feels new again!
