well it's been long enough and the small boys are now situated on the couch
with lollipops and cartoons
(after a nutritious breakfast).
the small girls have yet to arrive.
so, i shall share the house photos, all hipstamatic-stylee.
view from driveway
view from door way
the magical entry way
enter and pass bean's room (see door in left corner)
into my crafting area which is not usually this tidy
here is where i attempt to keep pretty things at hand
(like inner peace cards, a wedding album, you know)
but with little hands in the house all of the time
it is a challenge
this space is also shared with the living room
yay for big, multi-tasking rooms!
we have two multi-rooms, actually.
here's a peek into what the preschool room once looked like.
this is an ever-evolving space.
currently, i do not like.
everyday hallway reminder
the washroom with the pretty, but mismatched washer and dryer
my still boring (but de-cluttered) bedroom.
buddha and singing bowl adorn my dresser
i really thought the star lamp would be more impressive through the hipsta lens.
crib my son never sleeps in, door to bathroom
my favorite piece of furniture. ever.
mostly because it cost me all of $2 at a yard sale.
a collection of jars above on bathroom windowsill
the window is my favorite part of the master bath
more pretty things on windowsill
not as awesome as the close-ups but still awesome
vintage chalkware family o' fish
(awesomepapa remembered fondly the mama and
three baby fish from his childhood so we founda set on ebay.
he swore there was no such thing as a papa fish
but when we moved in
i found one on ebay
and made our family, er, school, complete!)
while we're "on" bathrooms, here is the boys'
and here are the stools used for the littles.
don't remind me that one of them is now tall enough to render his useless.
vintage chalkware ducklings
(notice the "big" brother and two "little" ones?)
moving on to the bedroom shared by the littles
mama-made painting and my favorite mobile
more toy storage and books, oh my!
bookshelf is two waybasics benches assembled together
the awesome family dining room
ask me if i've got my better crocker on, yet.
and on to the back porch...
awesomepapa-made rock sculpture on our back wall
another beautimous rock sculpture made by the then-four-year-old pea
my awesome gate makes awesomer shadows
can you spot the baby?
(also known as the view from the back porch)
i know. there's no photos of bean's room but when i took all of these, it was his part-time room/my craft storage area/our linen closet since this house has wee linen storage. one day i may show off the entire thing through a real camera lens but i have just been having too much fun with my iPod and the hipstamatic app.
now back to my regularly-scheduled life.
