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:
