House No. 678

Welcome to our new home. A few people have (OK, just one person has) requested to see the house we recently moved into so here is a mini tour of the place.

This is a shot taken from upstairs. I love my front door and the french doors to the office.

Here is the formal living room, it faces the office across the hall. We just got this swanky leather couch before we moved. I wish you could see it better. Now I would like to get a cool mirror to hang above it on the wall.

As you can see, we are very short on furniture! One day I would love to have a console table to display things on.

My favorite room in the house is the master bathroom -- complete with a vanity, walk-in shower and heat lamps! It's such a luxury after only having one tiny bathroom at Mark's grandma's house.

Oh, and did I mention the claw-foot tub?! I have only bathed in it 3 or 4 times because I rarely find time to indulge in it, but sometimes I will get in (fully clothed) just to brush my teeth :)

And I end all my long days in this wonderful bed. OK, so the bedspread is ugly but it was free. The Tempurpedic mattress is divine and my 400-thread-count, Egyptian cotton sheets are to die for. But my favorite thing of all is that Mark built the bed all by himself and gave it to me for Christmas. I love that man!

Okay you really have great taste!! Your home is so beautiful and I really can't believe that bathroom! You sure are a lucky gal. I am also amazed at the bed that Mark made. If he learned from his Dad then I am sure that it will last forever and then some. Brian and I have a dresser that Dan made a long time ago and it is still in top notch condition.
