2nd House-iversary

I couldn't let today pass without formally marking the occasion - it's my second house-iversary!  It amazes me how quickly two years have flown by. 

I haven't been able to get much work done on the house lately (both time and money being in short supply), but I wanted to celebrate today's milestone with a little project.

This is the 'infamous' key I told you about a year ago, on my first house-iversary.  I've held onto it (despite changing the locks right after I moved in), because for me it's symbolic - not just of buying the house in the first place, but of some of the obstacles I had to overcome along the way.

So today I mounted it in this frame (sans glass, and sporting a new coat of black paint), which I plan to eventually include in a gallery wall of frames (you know, some day...).  But for now, at least the key has found a proper home.


  1. I'm so proud of all the hard work and wonderful ideas and pride. Yup, proud of your pride.

    You are so very, very awesome. : D

    - Melina

  2. Nice to know you're still "ok" and enjoying the blackflies!

    Congrats on everything you've done, You are an amazing woman.

  3. That is a really neat idea - I may have to steal it!

  4. aw. what a sweet reminder. i like the key idear.
