Did a bomb hit California?

By the looks of our new home we're guessing the answer it 'YES!' So let's take a tour, shall we?


The entry way, welcoming you to our brand new home!!! Isn't it stunning??? I think the grout residue when you first walk in gives it a rustic feel.
Dinner anyone? As I've learned from my elders, if you cover your furniture with plastic it will last much longer. So I thought covering everything would ensure a lifetime of home appliance bliss!Ahh yes, the bathroom....we felt it would save time if we just placed the toilet IN the shower, thus cutting your morning shower time by at least 5 minutes.

Dorothy followed the yellow brick road, so we thought it only appropriate to follow the ceramic brown tile...has a ring to it don't ya think?

And finally my glowing craft room. It's actually celery with white accents but when I removed the blinds to paint the trim the sun burst in and the room began to glow!

So there is an update, I have been working all day and then coming home to this and working til midnight with the hubby to seek and destroy our home! LMAO

Ok bedtime, I'm officially delirious from lack of good sleep. XOXO

I have noticed there are quite a few people who do..does this make a differenceto stamping or is it just a color you love?? Just curious...Judy rozeview@sympatico.ca

I have to say...you crack me up! Your comments are so hysterical! I find myself checking your blog daily (and for me...that's something) just to see what is going on there with that house! LOL! Too funny! Oh yeah-- your cards are really great too! Now, since you just bought a house- does that mean that you will not be going to SLC this year for convention??
