Are you one of those people who would like to revisit an old house to see what the new owners have "done" to it? Or, would you like to see your current house as it looked over the years with previous owners? I admit it, I have driven by our past two homes in the hopes of getting a peek inside to see what they look like now. I'm nosey like that.
So, you can imagine my glee when I Googled our current (new) house and discovered pictures that were never before seen when it was listed on the MLS. It's like I found a buried treasure.
So, granted, some of these pictures were in the original listing photos, but it's still fun to
see how I've made the house so much prettier compare. And, what's fun about my house, is that for some crazy reason, they included photos from the previous owners, as well as photos from when it was part of Homearama (a local home builder's showcase tour). I'm not saying that in a braggy way (that's so not how I am - I'm just not the mom with the "My kid is an Honor Student" sticker on her minivan), but just so you know why I'm showing multiple photos of the same room with different furniture in it.

Since Picasa and Blogger are not playing nice with each other, I'm going to keep this post to just a couple of rooms.
On to the master bedroom...

And as it is now...
What's really cool about this whole thing, is back in 2004, when they had the Homearama event, I toured my current house! I remember bits and pieces of it (like how I loved the basement), but how weird is it that we ended up buying this house six years later? If you had told me back in 2004 that I would one day live here, I would have pinched myself to believe it. :-)
Off to battle Picasa and Blogger...
Have a great weekend!
