Sweet little row of owls!

I'm sitting here in a hotel room in Craig, CO. I came with Troy and some of his students for the FFA State Convention. We've had a lot of fun. I'm taking Wilson to the pool when it opens at one, but what to do until then? This is day three, and I've already done all the shopping I should probably do! I did bring Troy's parents' 50th wedding anniversary invites, and I will most likely finish those today.

How do you like these sweet little owls? Cute, huh? I think Noelle gave me this stamp, I'm not sure though, because I am feeble, and lucky I can remember my own name.

Living Room BEFORE Pictures

It's a small house 750 up and 750 down. I think it could fit into my classroom, I'll have to measure sometime. This view is right inside the front door. Two bedrooms on the right, bathroom ahead.
Master bedroom, and I use that term loosely. That's where Troy and I sleep. It's pretty easy to get around the bed if you turn sideways.
To the left of the front door. The paneling is currently undergoing a transformation. The LOVELY black curtains are history.
Front door. Do you see the curtain? It is made of some kind of unidentifiable velvet-like substance. In peach. No, I'm not kidding. It has swoops and swags and stuff. So, being the incredibly thrifty girl that I am, I said to myself, "Self", I says, "I could run this through the cuttlebug and make embellishments with this hideous travesty of home decorating, and mebe make sompin' purty." So, I took it downstairs and washed it. When I opened the washer, everything was covered in VERY SHINY FIBER. So I said to myself, "Self", I says, "This will all come off in the dryer." NOT EVEN A LITTLE BIT CAME OFF. I laughed my ass off as I put Troy, Ross and Skyler's clothes away. Now this is a gift that keeps on giving, because when they wear these items, I will be able to laugh at their expense once again.
So that's all I have on the home remodeling front today.
