Faust is in the House.
Man, we still have so much to do outside. When things are closer to finished, I may post a few pictures of our tiny backyard. We did our best to make it our own little world, and it's still continuing. We built our own deck, flagstone patio and planting beds-with our own grubby hands. And believe me, wrestling with 100 pound flagstones was not easy or fun. It was well worth it, though. :) Remind me to post a couple pics, ok?
I'm thinking about taking you on a guided tour of our humble home, one room at a time. I will carefully edit out most of the mess, dust and children's clothes that may find their way into the photos. That's the nice/scary thing about the internet and digital photos- with a few minutes labor and a couple clicks of the mouse, you can give a completely inaccurate impression of almost anything. Frightening, no?
Okay, here are some random pics of our stuff in the front room/living room. If I were 95 years old, I guess I'd call it the "parlor". Look it up. Anyway, lookey lookey. Here's some of our knick knacks in our bookshelf.
Some of them are silly. I think you might notice a theme, though....
And yes, we do have books in our bookshelf, but I didn't think you'd be too interested in our reading material. Or are you? Again, I can't hear what you're saying right now, so I'm just going to make a few assumptions unless you email comments to the contrary. Whatever. On with the show & tell.
I call this one "Mr. Moosenheimer". Yes, it's a moose skull. Antlers would have been cool.
Here's one of our curio cabinet. The sparkly glasses look nice.
And this is on top of our shelving unit. To the average observer, it would seem slightly dangerous. We built that frame as well as hand painted the sign. Mmmmm....shameless self promotion.... You may be wondering why we have a ridiculously big, 6 foot long picture of our mascot/logo on our bookshelf. Long story. But, it looks nice up there.
He was a very smart, dead German dude. Read "Faust" sometime. Auf Wiedersehen.
