living room

It’s tough to improve on perfection but we try oh so hard. That enormous propeller dangling from the ceiling. The elegant drapes. That lush carpet, not a minute over 38.

In the event that you happen to be watching paint dry and are looking for a slightly more amusing alternative, I went on and on about our house pre-makeover here


Bam! After! Better? I think so.


The weird (definitely explosive) fireplace is still intact but will (fingers crossed) get a gas insert this summer. Our unhealthy obsession with the dog can’t be missed and is sure to scare of strangers and encyclopedia salesmen. My favorite print, “Have A Beer My Dear” was a free score from Zipline.

Luuuurve our new furniture (Slumberland, Lincoln!)


The king of the castle approves too.

Hi, I'm Carrie! I reside in the lovely Lincoln, Nebraska with my husband Gunnar, cat Mr. Bibbs, and dog Brodie. We are new to Nebraska, hailing from Colorado, originally from the Midwest, and happy as clams to be back in the land of four seasons. When I’m not blogging you can find me working at my dream job at the Lied Center for Performing Arts, cooking vegetarian food, traveling, bicycling and canoeing... at the same time! Glad you’re here!
