What the "H" I been doin'

Well I have not been posting as much this year. Maybe this hu-jungous house project has something to do with it. My first post-Katrina freak out purchase was a dog. That I did by myself. But together, my husband and I committed ourselves to New Orleans in the best way we knew how: to suck every ounce of equity from our starter home and take on a colossal dinosaur of a formerly glorious house in a sketchy neighborhood. We've jacked it up, stabilized it, re-plastered like we oughtta and all that good stuff -and we still have a ways to go, of course. We have recently been able to paint, and well, me being a pesky artist and all...I experiment. Here's one trial run below.

I call it "Hibiscus in the TV Room"

This is great, Nik. I'd love to see more pics of the house.

Oh, and Happy New Year!

I've said it before; I'll say it again: GOR-geous!*

I love this. I also want to see more renovation pictures or at least send us somewhere we can see them in a non-commercial view
