Welcome to Our 60's Charmer

I would like to preface this entry by stating that Michael and I are very excited to have our first house...despite the updates it may need!

The previous owners' daughter gave us this photo taken around 1957.  She was raised here since she was born, and it was a one owner house.

The closing was a very emotional day for her.  It meant a lot to me that she went out to her car to get this little photo her dad took when it was built.  She was very proud.  I would love to go back and visit my childhood home.  This will be Levi's childhood home <3

Come on in!!

Yes, there is glitter up there.

I LOVE the kitchen for how many cupboards it has.  It needs a little love.

For example, see below.  This wallpaper was probably beautiful back then, but I think it's time for some paint and a new light switch cover.  It is pretty though....the cover, I mean...kind of.

The panel wall needs some help, too.  Paint is all we can afford for now.  So paint will do.

My handsome family :)

...view from the sunroom.  A sunroom will be fun!  The curtains aren't so fun.

Bye bye awnings.
Hopefully these come off easily without leaving marks on the siding.

The garage and I will get along just fine.  I can't wait to finally have a place to put our gardening supplies and maybe to even have a craft area.

I love this little porch.

This bathroom could use some updating.

There is different paper in most of the kitchen cabinets.  The owner left all these helpful cooking papers taped inside this cupboard.  So neat...

 Levi and I...  He just wanted to get down and explore...and eat twigs and grass.

A close-up of our old new house.  :)  Thank you Lord for our home.
