I bought a the fun really begins!

I purchased a very cute little bungalow in the Fountainbleau/Marleyville neighborhood in New Orleans, LA.  I had been looking at houses for only a short time when I saw the listing for what I like to call, "the cuteness".  Actually, I was not drawn to my house when I saw its pictures on the real estate website.  It goes to show you that while a picture may be worth a thousand words, the real thing is always better!  It was at the end of a long day of house viewing when we decided to "oh, we're in the neighborhood and we have an appointment" see one more house.  As soon as I walked in, I knew I was home.  It had such a great feel to it, welcoming, warm and cozy!  And best yet, I could move right in and "make it my own" need for major wall moving or tearing out bathrooms or gutting kitchens!  I have done all of these....and loved every minute of it, don't get me wrong!  I just wanted a little less chaos and a lot more enjoyment this time around.  So, as soon as I figure out how to post the pictures that I have of the house, I'll let you in on the progress and hopefully get some much needed and looked forward to input!  See you soon!

  1. Awesome, congrats! I know, the carpet in my master is terrible. But, it came with the house. And, a year and a half after buying the house, it's worth a little less than it was before - that's the Phx market for you... so until it picks up, we don't want to put any additional money into the house itself (we already put in close to $10K between the yard and office). Instead, we will enjoy decorating. But, for this reason, I am not decorating around this carpet color. So, do your best to ignore it for now. Until we do replace it, which we will... asap. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
