We are expected to get that blast of cold air here soon ~
with heavy winds and some rain/snow mixed in...
it's days like this that I feel my most creative ~
not sure why, but I always want to make something new with too, needle or thread.
.... Winter nesting instincts perhaps?
Days like this tend to be even better with a soup-pot bubbling on the woodstove
and/or a pie in the oven and a fresh loaf of bread in the maker.
|a reflective kind of day ~|
the beautiful little wire & beaded heart that you see hanging in the window below
was a gift from my friend Evelyne in France ~
...even on a cold & blustery day such as this,
Friendship warms my heart from across the miles :)
|raindrops on the window of my sewing room|
...and candle bases waiting to be made into make-do's
Yesterday Peter filled the rest of the holes and sanded in the bathroom ~
(lots of holes!)
then he began painting the trim!
he kept telling me to wait until it was at least 2 coats,
but I am just so excited I can't wait ~
|brighter now in there|
even when it's pitch black outside!
I gave in
and put my camera away until this morning ~
although it is far from sunny,
and there's only a base coat on the wainscoting & trim
it feels like it's all coming together now ~
|serious difference, can't wait for the sun to come out!|
after we closed the shop for the day
Peter & I drove in to Appomattox, VA
and picked up a few items that will be used in the new bath.
I found an old curtain rod, an ornamental oil lamp holder made from cast iron
and some old cast iron hooks for towels and clothing ~
(I'll share them with you soon!!)
#1 ~ I am in the process of updating my event schedule
