The house is mine.

Deposit down, lease signed in blood. You know how it goes. Now to start pinning and plotting and obsessing over how I want to decorate MY HOUSE. I’m going to treat this thing like I own it. Plant flowers and trees and paint the innards and collect and curate rooms…..oh it’s going to be swell!

mi casa soon to be su casa?

Orange paint

Maybe it’s a good thing I’m not a homeowner. I don’t know how I’d ever pick paint colors.
