Cute, right? My very own Kate Spade entryway. The walls got a fresh coat of paint (Revere Pewter) and our dog “Fish” got a new bow tie. And we added that black and white runner. It’s been finished for a few months now, and I have to say every time I leave the house it makes me smile.
On a very personal note, I’m so sorry for the radio silence on this blog the last couple of months. All those close to me know my mum unexpectedly passed away in June. I’ve been quite sad and just not ready to blog about transforming a house into a home. I used to call my mum every time I wrote a blog post on my old blog (the shooting*allens) and make her read it to me over the phone. Did you know the voice of my blog had a British accent?? Anyway, it made (makes) my heart ache that I can’t share that with her anymore. I miss her terribly.
I am ready to give this blog another go now. The boys are back in school and we’ve done quite a bit to the house since we moved in—nothing major, mostly just paint and furniture shuffling—but enough that’s it’s starting to feel like home. Stay tuned!
