A New Birdhouse

I know this blog has been neglected for, oh, months and months, and I do apologize. I go through phases with blogging; sometimes, I’m convinced everyone must really want to know about my dinner, and sometimes I think really nobody must care.

At any rate, I am now living in Pittsburgh again, thank God. I’ve got a real job for the first time in years, and I just moved into a new place this month. It was built in 1930, and it’s got some fabulous Arts and Crafts stuff going on. Everything needs a little TLC, but it could be potentially the most awesome place ever… if I can keep myself on track.

I’ve been reading other blogs, and embarking on fruitless searches for window coverings I actually want to pay for, sheets that don’t clash, and ways to organize the kitchen. I think I may be blogging again, here, so that you all can see the transformation as the house takes shape. Also, I have my own kitchen again, which means more cooking.

So, if anyone’s out there: What would you do first? I’ve got a bedroom, a giant living room, a kitchen and a bathroom to make my own. I did manage to score a sweet comforter at Target (Liberty of London for, etc.) so I can at least base the bedroom around that, but otherwise I’m kind of at a loss. Curtains ought to be the first priority, so the neighbors don’t have to witness me, half-dressed, drying my hair to get ready for work. What would you do first?

  1. I’m so happy for you to be back in PGH!!!

    I’ve been living in my place for 3 years now, and I still don’t have curtains. I hate the blinds, but I don’t want to put out the money for blackout curtains. What’s a cheap girl to do????

  2. You’re back!!! Yay! I have lost the interest to blog as well, although I might start keeping up my fitness blog again. Can’t wait to see all the crafty stuff you will do to your new home!! I’d start w/curtains too. What about Ikea?

  3. I’ve been thinking of checking Ikea this weekend. I may end up just getting some muslin and putting nice fabric on the bottom because I cannot find exactly what I want.
