hanging on

I’m sitting in the bathroom floor against the radiator, drinking coffee. The mild winter has made me weak! I can’t get warmed up this morning. This old, drafty house doesn’t help much.

Yesterday I went out on a long shoot, but didn’t wander far from home. I found a little bit of Autumn holding on – and could certainly relate.

I should probably buy proper curtains.

Bathroom Renovation

My renovation list is getting shorter, though not by much. This bathroom was the biggest pain! Tiny space and angled ceilings – nothing was easy in there. I used wainscoting to cover the old tile that someone had painted over. Paint colors – Martha Stewart “Celery Bunch” on the walls and Valspar “Du Jour” for the trim.

Still need a new sink/vanity in there, but at least the space looks presentable. Now for decor!

I should have taken better “before” shots….too late now:

Photos: Sailboats in Newport, RI

We were in Newport, RI this past week. The visit was for an unfortunate reason, but the area is just beautiful. Next time, I’m taking a real camera and plenty of time. These were taken just after a late lunch at The Castle Hill Inn, overlooking the bay.

The town isn’t run-down, I just looked for old things that made for interesting photographs. Though small, it was a great place to grow up – good people and a simple life. My feet stay on the ground even when my head is in the clouds thanks to a good ole’ southern upbringing.

Yup, this gal is made of fried okra and cornbread.

Oops!

I tried to make a pot-holder and my measurements were WAY off! I can’t get the darn thing on.

Ah well- I needed a pin cushion anyhow. :0)

Main St Liquor

Makes me think “Saint” instead of street. The name would be more interesing that way.
