Pictures on the Walls

Yesterday we spent a lot of time putting pictures on the walls. As you can see in the Conservatory (it's like from a game of Clue), we haven't put the picture up over the fireplace yet, but we thought we'd lay it on the mantle for a while. We plan to get a new mantle and redo the fireplace. This is such a pretty room with all the windows.

Another big job we did yesterday was put up the music shelves in the hallway. Ed did all the heavy labor of mounting them on the wall. It took me even longer to put all the music in them! Just when I thought I was almost done, I found 3 more boxes of music! It was terrible. It will be nice to have all the music in one place, including the organ and piano music. It is centrally located and easy to find. I like it!

We also put the foyer mirror up so we can look at ourselves again, and wonder why our pants loook so tight. It looks like home now that we have the family picture up. Over the dooway on the left you can see the nice sign Kenna made for us that says Bush Family. It looks very cool!
And, look, we have a guest bedroom for all of you that have promised to come see us! It is really Brittany's room, but she's not planning on living at home for a while. It even has fresh sheets waiting for you!


  1. The guest room looks very inviting! It's amazing how much the pictures on the wall make a house a home. I am looking forward to seeing your conservatory. What a great idea for you new home. See you Wednesday!!

  2. So glad that you are settling in and that you are making new friends. You are just getting to know some more of your extended family. This part of that family will always remember you. Ed, you look great on that new toy. Your house is lovely and is looking like your home again. Sorry we missed your open house. look forward to reading more about the adventures of the Bush family.
