a very very very fine house

Since I've been blahblahblah-ing without any photos these last few days, here's the Craig's List pic of my new home. You can see the porch where I sat and signed my lease yesterday, and the "for rent" sign that is no longer in the yard. :)

I got permission to paint and do other sprucing, so I'm planning on some heavy creative decorating coming up, and I'll be posting lots of pictures along the way (thinking of you, Heather). I'll probably need some advice on that, too, since I'm spatially challenged. The more I think about the carpet, which is brand new, the more I think I'll just work around it. (I hate to be wasteful just to be cute.) Actually, I've already grown to like it since I don't have a bed and will be sleeping on it for a few nights!

Very cute little rancher style house! Love when there's a grass strip down the driveway. Here in L.A., we call that a "Hollywood Driveway." Congrats.

Looks like your next-door neighbor's house is humongous!

The house is sweet! It has great energy with a writer having been in the house. It beckons and now you even get to get comfortable with it and put your creative hand to work to make it even more of yours.

Congratulations, best wishes and it is Thanksgiving!
