Hey, there, you know I have felt horrible about not sharing the semi-finished guest room with you after you kindly rode the waves of the One Room Challenge with me (as a link-up participant). So I don’t have the finished pillows or chandelier yet, but I wanted to finally give a little peek around. The photos aren’t great, but I had a little pocket of time today and I seized it. I’ll take more time when the final details are in.Oh my goodness, it is December 19, and I bought those mums a week before Thanksgiving. The lamps are from Screen Door Antiques that I found when dear Fieldstone Hill Dar and family came to visit me and mine at the cottage. She can tell you how long I waffled over those lamps…still waffling over keeping them here in the guest room.Super bad photo below, but I want to show you how the cornice boards evened out the uneven height of the window. I do love how a very homely craft like quilting looks quite modern when framed as a segment. I’m thinking of you awesome ladies in Gee’s Bend.
I did finish the art in time for our Thanksgiving guests. It was a new idea I had for my ribbon infatuation–so I kinda consider it a rough sketch or prototype. I like how it turned out on the plywood and look forward to making more and improving the idea.
This photo gives you a closer look of the concrete floor finish–so much better than what we were dealing with before.
Hopefully I’ll have lighting up in the new year. Then we’ll have a big reveal with a marching band and sky writing. It’ll be grand.
Until then, I’ll be Christmassing with the family, many who are really sick. Oh, man, last night my husband and I cleaned up the most epic vomit explosion of our parenting careers. Let’s just say that I am so happy that we tiled the walls around the boys’ toilet here in the new house. Gross, why did I tell you that? Hurry! Look at this and forget what I just wrote:Marlowe never wastes an opportunity to be irresistible. I think I know why he likes curling up under the Baby J b-day party tree…
Fun and color, I can’t quit you.
Have a lovely, healthy weekend, friends!
