Happy Third Anniversary!

It’s our third anniversary in our house!

And just as it has for the past 87 Sundays, the sky is dumping snow on us in that taunting way that’s all .. “Oh yeah, you’re nice and cozy now, but tomorrow you will have to slop to work in 6 layers of clothes and snow boots… AGAIN!  Hahahahahaha….. ”

So we got some grocery shopping done early, and are holed up at home, cooking and sewing and catching up on projects.

Chris worked on the third floor yesterday, pulling up the linoleum in his music room area.  Between the linoleum and the floorboards is a layer of newspaper from 1947.  We’ve pulled some of that out already, and most of it is in great shape. Then yesterday, Chris found a couple of color magazines — the Daily News Sunday Magazines from November, 1947.  Mostly ads– but what ads they are!!

So in celebration of this house that I love more every day: a slideshow of amazing newspaper pages from 1947.  Three years in and we’re still having fun and finding fun things!!  Cheers.
