It's been a while......

since I featured one of the "Home of the Week," posts. This $1.9 million Edwardian home shows so much promise from the outside but when you see the inside all you want to know is "WHAT WERE YOU THINKING???"  Seriously why decorate an old home like that?  It could be worse I guess they could have ripped out ALL the period features?  I'll pass.

The "condo of the week" is on for $620,000.  I am not "into" these industrial loft like accommodations, though will say the polished concrete floor does look nice in the photos.  However what it looks like in real life may be totally different.  Never had polished concrete floors, so no idea how durable they are?

Love this photo of Miss Nora.  She's probably thinking to herself; "gosh it's hard work being a baby!"
She's starting to sleep a tiny bit longer through the night.  Dd tries to have her in her crib by 8 pm to 8:30 pm on a night and she can sleep for 5 or 6 hours.  Then she'll be up for a feed a couple of hours after that and then is generally up again a couple hours after that.  Miss Nora is coming up ten weeks old now.

Then finally just when you think my life can not get any more exciting I spent a delightful half hour emptying partial cans of old paint into other cans so I can put the empty cans into the recycling bin.
I ended up with putting five empty cans into the recycling bin and now have a total of six cans in the garage waiting to go to the hazardous waste drop off in May.  Still have a couple more cans to go through but they can wait for another week.

That condo must cost an absolute bomb to heat as its all open plan. Plus what if you cooked something smelly like a curry! It would make everything in the house smell for days! And no where to escape from it.

The House was definitely better outside. Horrible decorating, and some of it would be a pain to paint over.

Baby Nora is sweet as can be!

I'm with you that house would need a lot of paint covered up!

Hope you have a nice weekend.

If you removed most of their stuff it would be quite nice, but seriously, 1.9 million???

Baby Nora is gorgeous!

Such an adorable photo of your little Nora Gill. Will go check out the house links now.

Ah bless! She's lovely.

Crumbs the only decent room in that house s the white bathroom. What a hideous mess!

The condo looks like a factory unit. Cold, stark & uninviting. Absolutely Horrendous!

Nora is too too cute! you are right! I can see that she must have a very hard life as a baby in that pic! as for emptying paint cans into other cans that made me laugh???but only because that would pretty much be a highlight of my week too! I actually would get excited about minimizing in that way?

Little Nora is a cutie!

That house is abominable inside... and the price? There are too many real estate agents driving up prices way beyond what the places are actually worth... and sooner or later that bubble bursts.
