Janet and Jim's Apartment Part Two

They really were willing to work within its small footprint.  And I know we could have done some fantastic things with it.

But then the man downstairs decided to start smoking in the house.  And the landlord chose not to care.  So with only a couple of weeks to spare before the wedding, they found a new place. 

This place....

Ooooooooh!

This, I believe, will be their dining room. 

I am so in love with this apartment.  The building it's in is 140 years old.  They have windows on three sides, crazy high ceilings and tons of character.  The white tile floor in every room makes for a bit of noise and isn't what you'd call cozy in the middle of winter.  But we'll work with it.  I'll keep you posted.

You may have wondered where I've been lately.  Well, I started a new job on the fifteenth.  It's absolutely fantastic, but I need to learn a lot.  Quickly.  So posting 'round here will be.... well, let's face it.  It'll be as sporadic as it's always been. 

I thank you for your patience and hope you'll check back in from time to time!
