Living room floors!

It’s been a total madhouse around here, but the termite tenting process is finally complete.  We’re back in the home and termite free.  The cats (yeah… all six of them) came with us to a local pet-friendly hotel, while the parrots went to be boarded at our favorite bird shop.  It’s like summer camp for them there.  They got to have fresh fruits and veggies every day, play with new (also friendly) parrots, have time out of cages and out {Read More}

Living Room Color Swatches
