It's late, so this will be quick.  Here's where I've been living for the past two days:

Only one small area of the room I've been closed up in.  Tripping over everything, climbing over stuff to where I sat with my laptop on the bed.  But outside that door . . . magic was happening!!

Here's a very bad view of the living room.  No books back on the shelves, yet, the furniture's not in the right place and my walls are definitely not that yellow!  They're much lighter and warm, not garish.  But look at the floor!

Buttercup and October are having a ball -- well, Buttercup is, anyway; October's zonked out on the rug.  But Buttercup has discovered that her toys, especially the little mousies she loves, work *so* much better on the floor!  They roll and skitter all over the place!  Here she is taking a little breather before she starts running back and forth again.

I'm just thrilled.  I lived with that yucky, awful carpeting for so long and I was desperate to get it out of there before Open Studios.  So now it's done, and I have a whole gallery wall where I can put my pictures!  Yay!!!

Oh! It's BEAUTIFUL, Elise! Actually, just like a beautiful gallery SHOULD have! ;)

Best wishes! =]

I LOVE the color of your new floor and I really like the rug that Buttercup is laying on! :)
