I was at the house this past weekend, and decided to take a few more pictures since the exterior paint is finished and I actually put up some bedroom curtains. But first, for funsies, a little blast from the past:
What a wild almost-3-years this has been. Now that it is mostly over, I am finally enjoying my kids' reactions to things.

When I was in a mad dash to get the house furnished and "staged" I didn't have time to use any of the fabrics that I collected and planned... instead I literally threw together whatever I could get my hands on. The curtains are from my kids' bedrooms at home & the bedding is from my neighbor's linen closet!
Long time visitors to this blog might remember the vintage humidor and lamp - I dug those out of the trash in the shack before tear-down. The iron bed is an 1880's antique, painted with "Viper blue" car paint. The rug is from Walmart ( I was in a hurry!) and the art is from Etsy.
It turns out that I kinda like the bedroom like this, even without my darling pre-planned fabrics.

All of the kids' beach treasures are piling up in the windowsills: pelican feathers, crab claws, oyster shells ~
I am finally letting myself relax and enjoy. (I realized that in all the categories I had for my blog posts, I had several related to "depression and woe" and "anxiety", and no labels for happiness. So I fixed that - I'm filing this one under JOY.) :)
