This little vine covered cottage lives on my Dads property.
My next door neighbor you could say.
Although it has been here for years
with its cute front porch onlooking a pond....
I never gave it a second look.
It has been a starter home for some in our family and recently been used as a rental.
Today it sits empty...waiting..
Did I mention renters?

I'm trying to look past the carpet and biting fleas to take in the possibilities.
A cute desk or ottoman in this lil alcove...
Can you see it?
A small bath with some big needs.
What would you do?
Its days like this I need Layla's presto chango magic!
When I mentioned painting the cabinets and woodwork,
I was holding my breath.
Something about painting wood drives most men crazy.
Not my Dad.
He said to Go for it!
Thats all I needed to hear ;)
One last room other than the storage room... the laundry.
It took about 4 minutes to snap these photos and find my feet covered in fleas.
I'm going in...
