Ch ch ch ch changes.....

Changes are coming! We're moving at the end of April. We bought a house! It's only a few blocks from where we live now. It's exactly where I want to live! Unfortunately it's clad in this lovely angel stone -- but I'll be painting it a nice light sage green some time in the future.... It is semi detached -- that means it's attached to one other house (this is very common here in Toronto). It's got a little back yard for Andy to run around in. And an apartment upstairs for Lauren. And a basement for me to work in. What more do I need? (a giant kitchen? It's got that too!)(Yes, there is workspace for Ray too -- we didn't leave him high and dry, LOL)

There are many more pictures of the interior of the house in my PictureTrail Gallery, but they are password protected. Because I don't own the house yet, or anything inside of it, I wasn't comfortable posting pictures of someone elses house (I did have permission to photograph). If you would like the password, please email me.

I'm supposed to refrain from calling it "The Money Pit". Unfortunately it's taking up every penny that I have, so I won't be swapping/trading until May. I'm sticking with my RR commitments, but that's it. I'll still be making art -- I just can't afford to mail it anywhere!

Good luck with the move.

Belated congratulations Martha! I love your house and can't wait to see what you do with it. The sage green sounds lovely!

Can totally understand why you won't be doing much art mailing for a while. It will be all worth while for your new home!
