I haven't been well the past couple of days so
today, I welcomed the quiet peace that Monday's bring.
We've been expecting some wicked rain for the
past couple of days but nothing has come.
I like the rain but love the cloud cover!
We've had great Fall-ish weather the past week
and LOVE the fact that we have not
had the ac on in that time.
I would like to say that whole house fans
are a genius invention.
We don't get too much of a breeze here like
we did in CA so sucking in
some fresh country air has been wonderful.
I did my usual laundry (still in progress) and housekeeping
duties because I did none over the weekend.
The kitchen is full of tools and junk (not the good kind) since
my Mr. installed tile in the kitchen entry,
pantry and laundry room.
It's a very strange feeling to walk on real flooring!
For our tile, we went with sturdy and traditional,
I love the colors of blue, gray, taupe and a touch of black.
I was surprised I even got base in the pantry!
That is the first room in our home we have "completed".
I just need to sew some curtains for below
the cabinets and do some
rearranging and it'll be done, done.
I put up my old Boutique sign for some nostalgia.
Bruce asked if I was going to change it out for
The French Pressed Home and I said no.
Black Rooster Cottage is a part of our history and
I like it. Our home is supposed tell our story
and that, it shall.
I don't think I ever shared the iron railing into the great room from the guest room.
It still needs to be painted black and the trim painted
with a faux treatment like I will do to the stairs once the bottom handrail is done. I might even wait to paint that until we get the tile and carpet done upstairs.
Someday, I'll snap a photo of what I see
while I'm lying in bed.
I can see all the way to the kitchen and
I love the depth to that view.
Here's one of the shutters I had
Bruce hang in the dining room.
I LOVE the chippy paint and it
lends a sense of Old World to the room.
And yes, I purposely left the construction mess
in the pictures.
I am in love with the great room right now.
Probably because of its cozy feel.
I am looking forward to using the fireplace again.
And that's about it!
We are getting closer to the interior end.
The new kitchen cabinets came in today so as I type,
they are being constructed for install.
Yeah, I'm still in disbelief myself. I've managed to survive on a table turned island
and no garbage disposal for over a year!
Life is good and keeps getting better.
Wishing you all the best!
