What lies beneath

Little house

Today we began our biggest project, so far, wallpaper stripping. Everybody who has visited has shared their stories of stripping wallpaper and it is fair to say we’re a little apprehensive.  So we decided to start small in my craft room. However under the first strip of wallpaper lay quite a surprise first a little bit of painting and as we continued lots of drawings and doodles including this little house.  I’m guessing the family before allowed their sons to draw on the walls before it was papered or maybe a treat for helping getting the paper up!

Let’s begin at number one

This blog is about our first home and coincidentally number one on the street too.  We got the keys only 7 and a half weeks ago.  It still feels very new to us and the list of things we could or would love to do gets longer each day.  The house, built in the 1960s, has already had a wonderful family existence and now we have the job of giving it a second life.  Here goes!
