More Pictures of the House

We have been busily fixing up the house to get it ready to sell.

Like the Prudential Realty sign? I've been told it "adds some class",
whatever than means. Gretchen fixed up the front, clearing out the
weeds and adding flowers to the front steps. It's too early to tell, but
there are annuals planted in front of the boxwood hedges.

The carpet Gretchen picked out for the living room is killer.

I reupholstered the couches and the chair. We got micro-suede fabric, and
I'm hoping that the cats won't claw through it -- like they did the original fabric.

[Sigh] We painted over the faux work in the dining room.
It's a nice color and ties everything together nicely, but I miss the
al fresco
feel of the faux stucco. Ah, well. There's always the next place.

And the bedroom. All the books have been packed into boxes.
It's amazing how many fit in the custom-fit bookshelves I made.
Also amazing, how much a box full of books weigh. Ouch!
Glad it ain't vinyl records.

Looks like a really nice home. I'm sure you'll find something you'll love in CT, too.
I packed my books in small boxes - it was a lot to carry, but at least nobody hurt themselves carrying them!
PS did I say "nice"? I meant colorful, warm, friendly. that sort of thing. (and to think, I still call myself a writer!)
