More demo…..


Looking into the old laundry closet…..

I wasn’t able to find a pic of the old laundry closet before demo began…probably because it was never much to really look at. It was actually an itty bitty bathroom that we converted into the laundry closet. It was just barely big enough to turn around in…..

Exhausted but still at it! Don’t you love the toilet sitting in the hallway? What your house doesn’t look like this?

I keep telling myself how beautiful it will be when all done! LOL….

Have a great week!!!

The little old shoe…..


This weekend while cleaning out the closet above the old laundry room we came across a box of stuff we had stored away after moving into this house eight years ago. We also found a box of old photo albums…… and lots of old left over paint!!!! This little shoe was one of the treasures we found in that box of stored stuff.

It is just so darn cute…I love the little button!

The little bird’s nest was found on our property after a bad wind storm. The square nail was found in our house while doing some restoration work………

The platter was found at an antique shop many years ago while on vacation.




Hope you are having a great week!!!!

Things are coming along…..


Our new washer and dryer arrived!!!!

I know the laundry room isn’t anything fabulous….. and not really pretty either but we are pretty darn excited!!!! We had a Whirlpool Duet washer and dryer for 8 years and while we never had any problems with the units  they never got our heavily soiled clothes clean either. In the end we decided to go old school and bought Speed Queen units.

We will be adding open shelves on the right side of the cabinets. I am working on painting the doors right now. These cabinets were left over from our kitchen renovation……

More to come……soon!

No pretty pictures yet…..


This is how I feel today….completely wiped out! We have put up lots of trim, installed the new wood floor, and painted like a zillion feet of wood but still no pretty pictures to share yet. Hope to have something to share soon though…….

Goodbye my beautiful tree…..


This was my view out the living room this morning before my beautiful tree was taken down. As you can see she lost her beauty after the power company cut her completely in half!!!!!!!! The stress of having so much of her beauty removed all at one time was more than she could take……..

Here is how she looked before her deadly trim. Funny, she doesn’t really look that big in this pic but trust me she was a big girl!

Now she is nothing more than a pile of wood on the lawn which makes me so sad. We plan on planting an ornamental tree to replace her…….we won’t be planting it near the power line though!

Have a great week!!!!!!
