We leave early on Saturday and won't be returning until November 15th!
I am so looking forward to our time in Texas...
April's Family Wedding Shower...
Seeing her brand new home!
They actually begin moving in this Thursday!
Before I go though,
I wanted to share another one of our completed projects~ The upstairs sitting room or the loft as we call it here at home.
This was the very first area to be completed and has now...
Even been redone once!
Last Spring, when my hubby had hand surgery, I made several changes to this room.
A fresh coat of paint...new window treatments and lamp shades... just a few just things to make it more cozy and comfortable for him during his recovery.
The walls are a deep putty color and I made slipcovers for the chairs in a cream brushed denim.
I also decided to do a chalk board wall behind the television.
Just for fun.
I have been collecting old picnic hampers for some time and...
In here, they house video game equipment and dvd's .
This room is also where I keep my collection of vintage field glasses and binoculars.
This pair is very old and a family heirloom. They date back to the civil war.
I love the patina on the leather case...so cool!
Currently, our few Autumn decorations are out.
Mostly things I've had since my kids were small.
Before we moved back into the house, this was the only place where we had a refrigerator and microwave.
Actually, it was the only room in the whole house that had a chair to sit in as well!
When the kids were at college and would come home for the weekend...they used this space quite frequently.
These days, the micro kitchen is super handy on movie night! We don't even have to go downstairs to pop popcorn!
I love this room because it's like a little cocoon at the top of the stairs.
I also love the fact that once we are in here...we are away from all construction that takes place downstairs.
When I return, I will show you the last two rooms upstairs and maybe even have a few updates on the kitchen. Maybe...not much has been happening in there recently due to the fact that we have had so much going on with the weddings.
Aprils wedding is now a mere 72 days away!
We are so excited!
Also, my thoughts and prayers to everyone who has been affected by the ferocious hurricane/superstorm Sandy that has hit so much of our countries east coast.
I just heard my son who is stationed at Little Creek, Virginia...They took the ships out to sea until the storm passed...much damage in the area and still be blasted by high winds and rain.
As always, have a blessed rest of the week and thank you so much for stopping by.
There are so many times that our renovation has gotten me down and feeling mopey...but your encouragement...
And sweet comments have gotten me through my toughest days!
Until next time...
