Finally Wood Floors!
Well, the oak floors are finished, but we still have a few things to complete. Let me show you around:

Here's a "new to me" vintage cabinet. I'm finally able to start decorating for the holidays.
YAY!!! It's been really bare around here lately.
Thanks for stopping by. I'm joining the following parties:
