working on our new house

By popular demand, I'm going to try to post with updated photos of our new home in the next week or so. I also need to take some more shots of the almost-finished office, bedroom, guest room, etc., but of course that requires actually finishing them, cleaning up, and making everything look pretty and tidy. So... those kinds of things might have to wait until 2009!

First up are some shots of Devon painting our cute little linen closet - the "Dill Pickle" green that we also painted our bedroom, with "Mountain Peak White" for the shelves. It's so pretty, I find myself wanting to find reasons to open the door!

I have to admit that Devon wasn't thrilled with me for taking these shots... but I think they'll be the kind of thing he'll be glad to have someday. And since yesterday was our anniversary and he spent it sick in bed, I have to post something involving him today, and these are ready to go.

I know I am biased, but... isn't he just a hunk of a man?

(Sorry, Dev!)

I was kind of shocked at how long it took us to paint just three rooms and one closet. Partly it's because we are doing multiple colors (plus trim, and white ceilings), and we're trying to do a very precise job. But, even so, I'm kind of daunted at the prospect of painting the rest of the house, especially now that our stuff is all moved in! It's going to look great when it's done (someday), though, so hopefully we'll get cracking on that in the new year.

Here are a few more, random shots from over a month ago - so, suffice to say, my office doesn't look so empty anymore!

Lovely view:

And some fall/ winter scenes:

More miscellaneous shots coming up!

I particularly love the look on your hunky man's face in the last photo. Funny, my husband gets that look too...
