Drum Roll.......

The "prom" stairs as my husband and I have joked about as you enter the house. I love them. In the living and dining room, beautiful yellow stain glass windows.
The dining room. Felix is preparing to rip out that wall in the dining room. Look out!
Coming down the prom stairs to the sea of mauve and an odd wetbar. Both hot in the 80's. Not so much in 2008.
The "new kitchen" area. We are removing that arched wall and the wall to the left (behind is the dining room seen before.) Believe it or not, that is the actual kitchen behind that arch, with the oldest stove known to man.

Well its ours. Pink moulding and all. We now own our "new" home and I am thrilled to share the journey with you.

Congratulations on your dream home! I am so happy for you! Can't wait to see the evolution. I know you will make it a show piece.

Big hug,


PS: I can practically see Gigi and her date locked in the most perfect of prom poses on the landing of your beautiful staircase.

PPS: Like it would have killed you to give Felix a little warning about the photo you were about to take!

I think it looks wonderful! Those stairs - gorgeous. Can't wait to see what you do to it. Are you living there while this is going on - all the walls coming down? It's beautiful. Can't wait to see more.

Congratulations! Love the stairs. The stove in your kitchen looks like (from afar) a vintage Frigidaire with the pullout electric burners. Some people collect these. You can read more about it at

Does it work? I'm guessing from your commment you won't be keeping it. If so, you may find you can sell it. I would be interested in buying it but I think my husband would flip I I asked him to drive to Scranton and pick up a stove! Although...if you do decide to sell it let me know. Michele
