Wellington's Transformation

Sometimes people start thinking about Wellington and sometimes they try to remember what Wellington looked like before they ever met Wellington.  So then they go on the MLS and pull up the old pictures. 

So I, being that person, decided to shove the old pics on the blog for safe keeping.  And also to illustrate my wonderful Wellington's Transformation.
Here is what poor little Wellington looked like in 2005.  The people who snagged him and started the transformation thought he had potential.  Even though inside was a pot belly pig, a ladder instead of stairs leading to the "attic", and no telling what else. 

This is what it said on the MLS about 2005 Wellington:  Like a Challenge? Older home with endless possibilities. Downtown fixer, walk to library, post office, swim pool, tennis courts, cafes and shops. 2 bed 1 bath. Addition in back with 1/2 bath and laundry hookups. Alley access, large attic space.

Here is Wellington when he was sitting on the market for months and months.  I ran across this photo many times in my quest for a new home.  But he looked tiny and dark.  There were no photos of the interior.  I just didn't find him intriguing.  Until I started to get desperate and decided to look at everything that had any possibilities.

So we made an appointment, pulled up in front and made ourselves go inside.  By this time, the weeds were waist-high, so poor Wellington was not Welcoming. 
Here is Wellington today.  Why does he look BIGGER?  Even W I D E R ?  Definitely more beautiful.  But he's more than just a pretty face.  He's our cozy little home and we're so glad we found him.  I think he's glad too.
