My MCM Journey

Postby Lonestardiva » Fri Dec 10, 2010 12:54 pm

Hope you enjoy the last FOUR years of my life in the slideshow link at bottom of post!! LOL ;):)
The house was built in 1955 from husband to new wife and she said he gave her a "golden key". I've had it since 1989, but left in 1991 for Dallas. Returned 16 years later to damage from a HORDER, as well as age with no maintenance.
Well... I always wanted to redo this place back in '89 but was a homeschooling mom with a growing family and no money. Husband died in 1999 (intestate!) and after 7 years of probate.... it was MINE again. (Only.. I hadn't SEEN it! lol)
It was worth EVERY MINUTE. In the entire FOUR years.. I only hated it ONCE.. and that was just for... um... 45 seconds! ;)
ENJOY, new friends!! I'm so glad I've found you all and this site!

good job and welcome to LL.

don't dig photobucket, though. too buggy. you might consider using flickr.com, which is much better and nicer to look at.

WOW...I'll never cry in my beer again. You've done a fantastic job and makes my little projects look...little:)

BTW, I like and use photobucket and had no problems with your slideshow. I really like the before and after shots.

Wow. Amazing transformation. I absolutely love that raised kitchen area. *all jealous and stuff* Lucky you! I would have SUCH a blast decorating that place! Great job!
It may not look like it, but at the molecular level I'm actually quite busy.

I'll blame my MCM love on my Mom and her often quoted
