Bridge Haus

This year, I'm sharing Bridge House with 5 other lovely ladies. Thus far, it truly has been wonderful to learn how to live with one another. However, the house we moved into hasn't been lived in for a number of years and wasn't really renovated when we moved in, so we wanted to share with you some of the idiosyncrasies of the place we call home.

Our upstairs bathroom requires a little bit of diligence, because when you turn off the water, it turns right back on unannounced; hence the sticky note reminder.

We do our best to clean up and to keep the kitchen tidy, but sometimes our windowsills become cluttered with vegetables, thread, pens, and coupon cards for free turkeys. 

Ahhh the gnats. We have had a number of different gnat infestations thus far. Sometimes we forget about produce, other times we forget to bring out the compost, other times they are just in your bedroom for no reason. However, here is our ingenious gnat trap (and a few dead ones too..).

We tend to either go thru soap too quickly or at an abnormally slow rate. The bottle on the left lasted for a week, but the bottle on the right lasted for a month and a half. 

Who doesn't want a good old fire extinguisher clipped up in the middle of the kitchen! Also a handy-dandy exit plan located directly above, in case we forget where our doors are in an emergency.

Our beautiful wires outside our bathroom.

The dingy single light bulb.


Haphazard tea hutch. 

Who doesn't want to see an empty crockpot the first thing when they walk home?

Ah an off-white light switch holder juxtaposed nicely by a white inspirational track poster!

What better way to block off a door than putting lights over it?

So glad we have all of those shelves!

Windowsill decoration.

Multiply this by 50 and you've got approximately how many holes are in our walls on the main floor.

Unknown yellow-orange stain on purple couch.

Pinecone for kicks and giggles.

Rusty radiators.

Beautifully colored wires crack peer thru encasements.

Lotion for everyone!

Located outside of our upstairs bathroom. Safety first!

This post was mostly kidding, we love Bridge House and all its little quirks. Stay tuned for part 2!
