In 2013 I bought my first home-a 1908 fixer upper in a small town in Colorado.
I documented my first two years over at Desperately Seeking Shelter and while I’m sad to leave that blog, it just didn’t fit anymore. When I started blogging I felt like I was never going to find a house-hence the desperate but now that I’m happily in my home I decided it was time for a change!
On this DIY adventure with me are Henry, my trusty and heroic German Shepherd and Prudie my sweet little Persian cat. More helpful than them are my mom who is always willing to paint and pull weeds and my dad who saves my butt when I get in over my head on a project.
Finally, I’m Alison, eager to do things myself even if I don’t know what I’m doing! I hope you’ve followed me from DSS and will continue to enjoy my successes (and failures!) as I keep working on my good little house!
