Memory Lane: 4 years of March

I've said it before but its hard to believe I've been blogging for 4 years now. Where does the time go? One of the best things about blogging is its like having a diary you can look back on. So I thought it might be fun to take a look back and see what I was doing around this time each year. Wanna see?

In March of 2007 we just purchased the limestone but hadn't sold our other house so we could start the renovation. We spent a lot of weekends doing demo projects and putting around the house. Thats when we stumbled upon the inside of the medicine cabinet.


By March of 2008 we had finished the renovation, moved in and managed to get a shower curtain and shelf hung in the second floor hall bathroom. It was good enough to call it done back then and I have done almost nothing to it since.

One more year ticked by before I finished getting the guest room into something decent looking. Aside from being a slow decorator in general, I was on a budget so that meant a lot of reuse of things I had laying around.

And then last year I tried to get the house more organized by using this little corner of the hallway as a mail center using some flea market and hardware store finds.

Thanks for taking a trip down memory lane with me.

    I totally love your mail center. My entryway is so tiny and narrow, but I hope to someday be able to have something like that.

  3. Isn't it fun going back and seeing all that you've accomplished? That's one of the hopes for my blog - that I can review all the iterations that the house has had somewhere down the road.

    I love the "look backs".............a favorite blog of mine (miss minimalist) does a year ago today once a week. Love it. I still cannot believe how bad the place was when you bought it. You obviously have a super creative mind (duh, you must look at the miracles you have performed!).

    I too take pictures each step of the way. When my house if finally finished, which will probably be shortly before 2045, I'll have a wonderful book with the progress.
    Is that a frying pan on the toilet? Not sure what else it might be......

  14. BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN
    Why American men should boycott American women

    http://boycottamericanwomen.blogspot.com/

    I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

    BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!

  15. After all this time I must admit that electric frying pan on the toilet still makes me laugh.

  23. One of the things I love most about blogging in being able to look back...having an online journal to measure progress has been a huge bonus!

    I don't remember seeing your medicine cabinet "finds" -- wow!! Some prop director out there is salivating. :-)

  24. I had never seen this bathroom photo! Wow! The DIY mail center- I need to go to the drawing board for a similar solution in my entry way. We enter on the parlor but the space is extremely narrow and I already have a mounted coat rack, long vintage bench (to remove shoes) atop a rug. Hmmm I have some thinking to do.
