my new MAJOR project.....


well, 
as most of you know
i have been separating from the man i love for the past
two months...

and honestly it's been slowly happening 
for the past six months....


through all of this i have found myself completely
uninspired...
in every way.....




i know i have been slacking...
 on my blog
and everywhere...
 thank you for your dedication
and thank you for still reading....


during this separation process,
we 
(timo and myself)
are trying to each come out alive and civil...

he has offered to help me buy a house!



so...

i have been looking and looking,
and i am very excited about my new project!

renovating a house!
just what i need to get my inspiration back....

my focus 
my independence...

well i found this darling little house
and it has been quite the roller coaster
emotionally in every way....


but!
as of today....
my offer was accepted....

as along as the inspection goes well...

i am completely renovating a home!!!

alone!

here are my first pictures!

keep in mind

I LOVE IT!!!!!!! So exciting- I think you should paint all the floors instead of having them stained. Love the arch. Yay for you!

I think the weird little addition has potential, keep the roof line, but open up the walls. And I am inspired by the photo of your bedroom. I like having wall paper in a closet. It's nice way to splash a print into a room, without it being too much.
If it were me, I would buy every shade of white and paint every surface a different shade, floors too.
Are you using Pinterest, this is definitely a project for Pinterest.
Take care of you, this is a great way to do that.
