the tour

here are photos of our house as we were listing it.  I was sad b/c the realtor told me to EDIT the big gallery wall in our dining/living room area (and I had just made it how I wanted it), and she told me to do the same for Tillie's room.  Alas, we changed it.
Here are the photos I took the day the professional photographer came to take HER photos.  It's weird to have our ENTIRE house clean --- like EVERY closet, EVERY room, EVERY EVERYthing.  But, it's a NICE weird.
Our realtor wasn't a fan of all the cereal we had up top.  I had a feeling she wasn't going to be a fan.  So, she told me that the only cereal we could keep would have to be stored in a basket of some sort.  Lucky for us, I found a super cheap and BIG one at Ross.  It works.  Also, so weird.  She said we needed to add greenery at the top of our cupboards.  It's not really my style, and I hope this type of greenery was okay. But I still think it kind of looks lame.
Fortunately, I put our little blue chicken up there----whether anyone likes it or not.  I love seeing her every day.  It's like she's watching down on me all day, approving of EVERY decision I make.   hA!
the MAJORLY edited wall.  hopefully it's not TOO personal with all the photographs of us on there.  I also wanted to keep some of the original nail holes in the wall, so I decided to take a little furring strip and paint it with my new motto, "let's go play!"----it's a good reminder for me to stop whatever unimportant thing I'm doing and play with my kids. 
I didn't want the kids to pull out a bunch of toys since the house was in a state of perfection---so I plugged them into a movie.  :)  Works every time.  :)
I always feel bad when I see a photo of this room.  I feel bad that Cal can't have a normal room, b/c his mom has too many art supplies.  Sorry, Bubba.  Maybe one day your room won't be filled with boxes and reams of paper...
this side looks MUCH better.  This is the side I wish they would have put on our listing.  :)  Oh well.  You win some, you loose some.
a little crooked, but we'll go with it.  I had big plans for this peg board, but laziness is holding me back.  Oh well.
our realtor told me she wanted some sort of something in the corner.  I decided to go with these little flowers I found at Hobby Lobby.  I didn't want to pay for an expensive vase, so I got a clear glass one for $1.50 and spray painted it with some mint green spray paint I had on hand.  I think it turned out cute, and I can't believe what a difference it makes in that bathroom!

Anyway, here's the tour.  I wanted to remember how all the rooms were, so forgive me in posting so many.

I know the realtors always say to take down family photos and such... but I always loved seeing them when we were looking for a house. It made it feel like a home... So I think it's fine you left some up. You decorate so well and that little chicken is cute! Good luck selling your home. Oh - and I love the flowers in the bathroom.
