Inspector Gadget

Happy Monday, Dolls!
 
As you can imagine, over the next several Months, especially, my blog will discuss quite a bit "all things house".  I'm obviously over the moon with excitement about being in the running for our first Home!
 
We had our inspection on Sunday afternoon- and it went well! A few minor things that need dealt with....( Mice in the basement?? Moneypenny doesn't have teeth & 007 has no claws- I guess they'll have to use some teamwork?? )
 
I'm already coming up with some fun decor ideas. I've never been able to decorate my own place- so I have no idea what my 'style' is.  I'm pretty sure I like neutrals- clean, fresh, airy.
 
I'm thinking about painting the stairs all white- with a stair runner. Gray stripes? Anyone have any (mis)adventures in painting stairs?
 
Of course Starbucks was involved in my weekend!

Congratulations on the inspection! That's a big step :) I'm new to your blog and newly following along-I love it. How did you set your pictures into circles? I just got Photoshop Elements and I'm way too new to it to know how to do anything cool like that! Good luck with painting the stairs! xoxo, eliza
