i actually choked back a little bit of throw up over this one...

i got the new house beautiful yesterday..

some of it was great like this:


and some of it made me wonder if it was 1983, like this:

i mean, isn't it all a bit much?

inlaid tile floors, fussy blue and white backsplash, tin ceilings, leaded glass all the way up, mega fussy cabinetry with spooling and quilting(??), hammered metal sink and 5890852835784798 topiaries...ALL IN ONE ROOM?

i just don't get it at all.

do you?
