Here are some "before" and "after" photos of my house renovations:

Before and after, looking into the kitchen with my new stove and refrigerator.

Here we are looking into the kitchen from the living room. Don't you just love the tile? You can see the front of my armoire being pressed into service as a freestanding pantry. But it looks good!

This photo is looking into the living room are from the kitchen. I love my leather furniture. I'm planning to paint the walls because I don't think the yellow really sets off the tile. I'm thinking of a mocha color for the living room and a gray-blue for the kitchen. I'm going to have the cupboards replaced when I can afford it, along with granite countertops. There is a serious lack of storage and workspace in the kitchen as it stands right now.

Introducing Mimi

Here are some pictures of my beautiful Mimi. She's a Himalayan that was rescued from a dumpster in the mountains. It took her a few days to warm up to me. She has the most beautiful blue eyes and the sweetest personality. She loves chasing those little fabric mice around the house. It feels so good to have a cat in my life again. My adorable Amelia Dearhart, Mimi.
