I'm Back!

Thank you for patiently waiting for me! Moving has been an adventure, however, not an easy one! When the travel time is approximately ten to twelve hours, depending on your stops, it takes a whole lotta out of you!

(This is me at a spring art festival in Minneapolis.)

By the way, I live in a neighborhood called "Tangletown" which is a delightful place to live. I have included information about the neighborhood at the end of the post if you're interested.

Welcome to my home....a house that was built in 1922. I love the colors that are in this home and will definitely use many of the same colors in our home when we buy in Minneapolis!

Since this photo was taken, I have added artwork to the walls and moved the antique trunk to the entry way. A large wooden coffee table is now in front of the couch.

This is the view from the dining room looking into the living room. I love all the light from the many windows and open space.

The built-in buffet was almost taken out of this house when the owner made updates! I'm so pleased that didn't happen. It is filled to the max with my Alice in Wonderland dishes, Christmas dishes and special china pieces.

The door to the right goes to the huge kitchen and the door to the left leads to the attic.

Off to the left of the dining room are the first floor living areas. I am claiming one of the rooms as my studio space. Photos will come "after" the transformation!

Our guest bedroom....so now you'll know where you'll be staying when you come for a visit!

The antique dressforms are from NYC and a gift from my daughter. The tiny one is a children's dress form.

The guest bathroom has been completely rennovated. It has nice tile colors and a great window for light.

Matt's Moving Company had been hired several times to unload the moving trucks. And just how much stuff can one own anyway??? The answer is easy.....way too much! Bill's stuff??? Dang...he doesn't have much! So the truth must be.....it has to be my art studio!!! And where does one par down when you are mixed media artist? The paints? The fabrics? The assemblage possibilities? The rubber stamps?....bite your tongue!

I am sorting boxes and taking out items that I can live without and making local donations. Donating is a good thing!

Tangletown, formerly Fuller - Location and General Characteristics

Tangletown neighborhood, located in southwest Minneapolis, is bound on the north by 46th Street, on the east by Interstate 35W, on the south by 54th Street and Diamond Lake Road and on the west by Lyndale Avenue South. Minnehaha Creek traverses the southern part of the neighborhood. The name Tangletown alludes to the street layout, which does not follow a traditional grid. Until it was renamed in 1996 the neighborhood's name was Fuller, after its elementary school named for Margaret Fuller. Fuller was an American feminist, poet, essayist, journalist and educator during the latter half of the 17th century. The school was torn down and the land converted into Fuller Park in 1977. This small park, a center of community life, offers many activities and features a flower garden.

Hi, Sara! So good to see you on your blog again! I love your house! That buffet is such a masterpiece, I'm glad they didn't tear it out, too. Your neighborhood sounds wonderful. Can't wait to come see you! Big hugs!
