Kim's new house

I have had photos up on Flickr for a little while of my new house but figured I'd post something on the blog in case you missed them on Flickr, so you can see what I've gotten myself into. This will also explain why for the next several months/years I will be very VERY busy. My new house is small, due to the fact that it's all I could afford close to downtown (no longer 2 incomes paying the mortgage). I'm done with the burbs. So I had to make some sacrifices, size (maybe 1000 square feet and about 12' wide, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms) and age (about 90 years old) being a couple, to live in town. Attempts have been made over the years to update the house by very AMATEUR renovators. Don't even get me started on some of the things that have gone on here. But this house is going to be a fun project for me and I'm really looking forward to it and to sharing it with all of our readers. Hope you all don't mind if I ask for advice along the way. Now for the photos. I've only lived here since Dec. 18th so all I've done so far is stick furniture here and there. And dream.

Jo's place


I've been so busy at work and most thrift shops have been closed. What's a girl to do? Take a holiday of course! I'm not posting or going to work next week so I can ..... wait for it ..... paint my apartment. Sorry I don't know how to relax. Only a few finds this week. Two little frames that I'll add to a grouping I'm doing for the lounge room. The gold one will be painted white and the vintage mirror frame will be home for one of my peacock prints. Can't show you all of my new etsy letterpress. Bad cuss words. Got it at rar rar press, full of fab and funny letterpress goodies. Kim will be posting all week and I've seen the cool stuff she has found. I'll drop in occasionally to say hi if I have the time. Have a great New Year everyone!

Holiday reading part 3


One last holiday reading guide to help fill the gap until the big boys and girls come back to play. Once again it's a mix of blogs you may know, ones I've been lurking on and new ones (to me). Have fun exploring their archives. We'll be back to WINKS (weekend links) next week and do I have some great links saved for you!
