When they say you should take time to stop and smell the roses.....
....they are not talking about these roses.
Really, you don't want to smell them.
So, what do you suppose was the thorniest issue in this makeover?
You guessed it, removing the rosy wallpaper.
My job was to visualize a new rose garden.
Make all my dreams come true!
Which he did!
I got my Cleopatra-like tub, and some little glass tiles too,
my own vanity with turned furniture legs,
and a completely new, rose-free bathroom!
Because, after all, he had promised me life would be a bed of roses...
....I'm just hoping those old roses don't grow back!

EPILOGUE: The recession may technically be over, but it isn't over for everyone. I think we are like many families, caught with a home we have been unable to sell. So what will become of this house? For now it is back up for rent... we sit and we wait. I know that I do miss my dear friends in the city neighborhood and I've made some wonderful new friends in the country. It is uncertain where we will ultimately end up but for now, it's back to the farmhouse and all those unfinished project that are waiting for us there.
Hope you have enjoyed this little tour of the city house this week, I know I've enjoyed having you over!!
