A kitchen, a hallway, and a nook

Here's a start!

The previous owners left a fridge in the garage for us which we hastily moved into the kitchen. They also left a mirror above the fireplace (not pictured!) that is AWESOME and perfect. I was sure they'd want to take it along but it didn't happen. We found out why once we got the keys. That thing is not coming off that wall when the nuclear bomb infused meteor hits.

The previous owners were also compulsive hammer-ers. So many nails in so many walls!!!! Some people make goals to lift heavier weights or save money for a vacation. They set a goal to hammer more nails into the wall than they did the day before. Thus, we've been spackling and painting over, and we've also been pruning and planting and organizing and just loving it. Flowers! We helped out in mum's garden growing up, so this shouldn't be a shock, but it is still just incredible to me that if you put the seed/flower in the ground, give it some water and leave it alone, it will give you lush flowers! Unbelievable! Anyway, here are a few visuals.








P.S. Those lemons on the table are fresh from our garden!
