It's All Happening...


Someone took my double dog dare ya...and ran with it....I know it's not pink, but it kills just the same...




                     

This front door's makeover, however, has been quite the project...It's taking days to get years of crusty old paint off.  It will be worth it.





The blue stone patio is done. Now the screened porch construction can start.





Loving the strap light... ( and the dark green doors with brass hardware )






This particular light offers no competition with the oversized kitchen lanterns.





The stair railing is lovely in Benjamin Moore's Floral White.






Brick backsplash almost complete...








A glimpse of the Spinella Wood counter and just grouted brick...





Progress with sideboard re-do...for use in kitchen...






"gilding the lily"...





Master light fixture...

Master bath progressing...





Choosing his and her mirrors...







Going to use frame on left for both....rope twist fillet for him...dainty swirl fillet for her...






Love this powder room paper...














FINALLY (after many weeks) have found fabric for custom ottoman in a wine room...






Which side should I use?





On the home front: winter did her damage...I lost many plants, but the tried and true are coming back...





Miraculously, I didn't lose a single pot...










The hosta in pots are my favorite. I have too many creatures that like to dine on them when they are in the ground.










My hydrangea vine is coming back after major home repairs necessitated a severe cut to a large section of it two years ago.









It's started to wrap around the side of my house. I think I'll stop it there.







Rescued this stone from a house that was demolished in my neighborhood.....It took one rental van and two probably un-safe car trips ( turned my car into a low-rider! ) The new path runs the width of my house. I need to plant around it, but I've been too busy.





This is the time of year that I love best (next to August)...everything is making it's move...you can expect daily, even hourly, changes...

It's all happening...

    1. Thanks! Pin Away! I'm just so happy that I didn't kill it when we cut over HALF of it down! k

  5. This hydrangea is my dream! Ours is currently stunted at the base of our chimney - it gets way too much afternoon sun over there. I'd like to move it to the other side of the house and get it climb the siding.
