Shocking!

As you may have figured out (if you are a regular to my blog and those of my friends...) that T came down for a visit this past weekend. I had teased her that she was welcome to come and organize my house after doing such a good job on her own. Well, T took the challenge. She brought her hubby with her on a rare visit with no kids in tow. GMJ graciously had the kids for the time. Denis and I put them both to work. We shamelessly took advantage of their free labor. And I'm happy to report that a LOT got done and we all had a great time! Here are the "after" shots.
The office (AKA "the red room"), seen in a recent post in it's former state of chaos.

The "guest room" which up till now was in no state to receive guests. This was the room that did not appear in the house tour post last year. Sorry, there are no "before" pictures for this room.


Now we are all ready for YOU to come for a visit. We have a lovely room waiting for you. :o)

It looks great! T you are a good friend to help out when you are visiting.

The guest room looks very cozy. Nothing is more inviting than a room full of books! I just want to plop myself down on the floor and lean up against the bed and find something good to read.

Tracy, glad your back. I missed you!

That bed was in Denis' family, it's an antique, but he's not sure how old it is. It's actually a strange in between size - bigger than a single but not quite a double. He modified the base so that we could put our double mattress and boxsprings on it. Some friends of ours have a dresser in the same style.
