Yes friends, sometimes I don't keep up with my ambitions. The table runner is still under construction, even though I thought I might post pictures of it all finished and looking lovely earlier this week. Here is a peek at some of it, above.
In the meantime, we (mostly Batman) have finished painting (most of) the downstairs. We have been unpacking boxes and discovering old friends. My "blue and whites" china collection is back in the hutch after nearly two years of sitting in boxes in the workshop out by the garage. Lots of artwork has been hauled out of storage too, and we are working out our gallery wall...photos to come sometime soon (did you notice that I did not say exactly when?). Our homesteading/gardening/nature books have found a home too, tucked under the front windows, along with the bust of Batman's great grandfather "Papa George", sculpted by Batman's Grandma Peggy.
Slowly, our new house is beginning to feel like home.
After a walk around the outside with a paper and pencil, we now have a list of site clean up chores that is a bit intimidating. This spring we'll be working on planting lilacs, flowering trees, prepping an indigo bed (squeal!), picking up nails, nails and more nails and getting the veggies started. There's muddy run-off to wrangle, both top soil and gravel to spread, grass seed to plant and maybe a glass or two of wine to sip at the end of busy days.
Lest I exhaust you with the details, I have a few treats to offer you as we move into the weekend...
Listen to a lovely story about falling (literally) in love, read by Dakota Fanning, here.
Here's to springing forward dear readers! xo
