Is This Thing On?

I can't believe it's been so long since I have even opened my blog to look at it. I can only say that life has just kind of happened the last month. It's been great, busy, confusing, fun, busy, overwhelming, exciting...

But I've missed this. So I'm back. I can't promise I'll write every day but I will not neglect this for as long as I have this time.

Anyway, I know some of you have been asking about my new apartment. It's taken forever to get settled. I still have a lot of work to do but at least now I can feel more organized in general. I'll give you a little tour.

The back door (attached to the deck) The house is barn red.
I just painted this chair for the porch. I'm going to put a plant in the seat. Cute right?This is the divider between the living room and the kitchen. This is the "weird room area" It's now going to be the office/library. It needs new paint and some other things but it's going to be cute when it's done. And the guest bathroom is right next to it.
The Weird Room features a built in desk area. Right now it's holding my computer because I don't have the wireless hooked up yet. There is also a built in cabinet with drawers that I'm storing linens in.
This is the entry way to the living room. I love this with the built in cabinets.This is the foyer. I haven't decided on window treatments yet.
The front door that leads out to the porch area. The porch is enclosed but it's not so cute yet. I'm using it for storage for now.
The desk in the foyer. This is the view from outside my bedroom. The Paris picture is from when I went there in 11th grade. It's one of my favorite things.This is my bedroom. Again, needs curtains but haven't found the ones I want.
I really love the built in cabinets everywhere.
And finally, the doors to the guest room/craft room and the accessories closet. I haven't finished these rooms yet. I hope to soon. Stay tuned for that. So that's that on the home front. I'm glad to be back and don't worry--I won't stay away as long.
Happy Fall to you all--it's my favorite time of the year!
Oh, and Pumpkin coffee is back--spread the word.
