The Adventures of Tom & Shelley

This post is the start of something new to It’s the start of a series I’d like to call “The Adventures of Tom and Shelley”.

I’m Shelley Long, DH is Tom Hanks and we star in our own real life version of the classic 1986 film, The Money Pit.


It’s an 1898 home with 1898 style issues. Namely: stuff is old, stuff got done the wrong way 50 years ago, or my personal favourite simply painted over or covered up so we could find the issue years later. Thanks a lot.

But it’s also the beginning of DH‘s adventures as co-pilot in the many DIY shenanigans in our home and on our property. You’ll be seeing a lot more of him in pictures/videos for projects (you are welcome, he’s a real looker) and you’ll also see some more adventurous projects being tackled because it’s not just little old me talking to the dogs while I work on projects by myself.

We hope you’ll join us for the ride!

oh, and ps. many readers have asked over the years “who the heck is this DH guy and is he even real?”. Well, he is very much real and the next post is all about HIM. Yes, brace yourselves….you will soon be meeting DH. (update: see that post HERE)

pps. I LOVE this scene from The Money Pit and honestly would probably pee myself if I came to this I’d be laughing so hard. DH, of course, would be less than impressed.

    I'm looking forward to your new adventures, Heather. It won't be "DIY" ; it will be DIWDH ! And, thanks to your blog, I am painting my front door STRAWBERRY WINE this weekend ! The comments from friends and neighbors about it should be fun.
