“I have always loved a house that has a puzzle going.”
Kevin and I started a puzzle a few weeks ago. 1000 pieces- whew! (I didn’t know they’d be so small- LOL!) I love the picture so much I might never take it apart when we’ve finally got it all together.
My mom, and my aunt & uncle in Minnesota almost always have puzzles going in their houses, and gosh do I love the way it makes their homes feel. Reminds me of that quote about home being more like a feeling than a place.
Sunshine and shadows. Whistling windows and what’s on the stove. Projects and pets. Laundry day. Movie night. Supper time, bath time, bed time, puzzle time- home, the feeling, is my favorite.
So, remember that photo drawing of the living room I put together in Photoshop a while back?
Well, I taped some paper to the floor and ceiling on the right side of the room so I could get a better idea of what it would feel like to have a four foot wide wall there:
I added some gray lines to my photo in Photoshop today to really complete the visual:
We’re going to go for it. I reeeeally like the way it feels in there with the paper up, and I get excited when I think about all the new decorating possibilities. We’ll start by framing it out first, and then we’ll plank it, side by side, over the next couple of months.
And, who knows, maybe we’ll finally be finished with that puzzle by then, too. 😉
