Get Ready

3 Feb

For me to be full-on obsessed with the 1930’s. Because we got the house!
Hi. And welcome!  You’re just going to love it!
The kitchen needs work. I know, these countertops are just awful. And so is the tile. But we can fix that, right?


With a little vision, it can look as awesome as this. Although I’m thinking more neutral. But the same amount of awesome.

newhouse3Look what’s in the basement. I think I look like Nancy Drew in this picture, hunting for clues in a dark and scary basement. If Nancy Drew were almost 40, that is.


Here’s a close-up of one shelf. It’s from an old pharmacy, I think, and each shelf bears a similar tiny, hand-typed label. A bonus treasure, in my new 1936 house.


I think this is true. Because here is why…


I drew this tiny, ugly doodle in my journal in 2008. A drawing of my dream house. A Tudor cottage. I’m a terrible artist, by the way. But that didn’t matter.


My dream came true anyway.

xoxo, LaurenT

    Oh, that’s wonderful! You must be so excited! And definitely a Nancy Drew shot! I can’t wait to see what you use the shelves for. They look like they could hold an awful lot of wine….
