House for sale! Mine!

We are moving back to the city!
I'm a city girl.
I've lived in the small town of Blum for 11 years now...
as I said to my husband,
"I've done my time."
I want the conveniences of a larger town and I'm ready
for a change.
We're selling our house
"For Sale By Owner"
so.... I decided to list it on my blog.
I thought maybe someone would be interested or know someone
who's ready to live in the country.
It's really quite nice.
Woods, seasonal creek and pond, horses, nice neighbors,
nice school ... and...
you can see all the stars at night! I think I will miss the stars the most.
But... it's time. So, take a look at our home.

Aerial shot taken by a very nice man who sold us this picture for like $60 and my husband actually paid it. Oh well, at least we have a nice aerial shot of our property, which I guess might help someone decide if they want to buy our house.

Our shabby chic front door. I was going to paint it, but I took a poll on flickr several years ago and the majority said, "keep it just like it is." So I did.
Come on in!

Living room

Dining room looking into the living room
