another craigslist find
If you remember, we found our gorgeous farmhouse table on craigslist. I've just had another lucky find. A woman was redoing her entire living room and selling everything from a gorgeous custom sofa, two side chairs, this rug and window treatments. We bought this pretty all-wool rug along with two custom yellow linen window treatments and two throw pillows. I think this rug will probably go in the back (blue) bedroom. I'll try to take photos of the pillows-- one is a really pretty blue/yellow toile.
We are rebuilding our house after losing it in a massive fire on November 17, 2007. It's been a difficult ordeal-- losing so much, being displaced and then dealing with the major nightmare of our insurance company... but this blog is an effort to focus on the future and the path we're taking to get there. It's an effort to focus on the positive-- that we are rebuilding, rebuilding a house that we never otherwise could have found-- a house according to our tastes exactly. I've vowed not to bring up insurance or banking headaches or even the multitude of heartaches of the past year plus, but instead to focus solely on the exciting (and sometimes frivolous) adventures in building a house. More importantly, having lost so much of our 'history'in the fire.... this is the beginning of a new story, the story of our new HOME....
