Our House

For those who are interested.. here are some rather late pictures of our newest residence.

The kitchen is so much bigger than our last place.

There is even a spot on the stairwell to put Stephen's 100lb aluminum iceberg sculpture (that we have been dragging around since undergrad). Love that we finally have a perfect place to admire it.

Stephen decided to give the 3rd bedroom to the girls as a playroom, instead of using it for an office/studio. Sweet daddy.

Our room is about the same size that it was before. We have our own bathroom of course and this one has a tub! Last place just had a shower.. which was pretty great too... but I am excited about the tub. The girls' bathroom is in the hallway, and there's a half bath downstairs.

La Chambre d'Ada et Margot. See that string of birds on the wall.. this is my victory for the week.

I had this idea to do their room with bird silhouettes but couldn't figure out how I wanted it to be done.. and I didn't really have a budget for it. So, Stephen cut the birds out for some leftover cardboard boxes for me. Then I glued on a variety of fabric that I have in my collection and stuck a clothes pin on the back. Hung them from a line of semi rough looking jute string and.. voila! There is a strand over their beds and another one over the dresser.

This is a big thing for me.. I hardly ever actually finish a project that I envision.. even if I get started on it. Feels so good.

We couldn't resist a little owl family. From left to right, Daddy Owl, Mommy Owl, Baby Ada Owl and Baby Go-Go Owl (christened by Ms. Margot herself).

Isn't it cute?!

The room looks great with the owls and other birds. So glad you have felt better-good to clean. Nothing like little bribes to get them to eat. I love the tart-yum-m-m. Have a great week-end with your birthday girls. Wish I could be with you. Love, G-Grandma
