Howdy from southwest Kansas. .
It's been another few weeks since I have checked in. .
I know. .
because my mother keeps reminding me that I have been missing!!
And the rumor is. .
that my back-home family. .
starts to ask around if we are OK when I don't check in. .
I will try to do better. .
But for another few weeks. .
You will have to trust that we are ALIVE. .
All the shopping and play time with the cousins took care of these two campers!!
I couldn't resist the photo op!!
I am LOVING the french doors. .
And so far, the sun entry into the room hasn't been as bad as I had anticipated. .
since the doors are facing that eastern morning sunshine!
The photos were taken rapidly. .
And I didn't bother to pick up the clothes hanging off the bed :-)
The closet door is at the right top of the photo. .
I can now walk INTO the mess. .
And shut the door on it when I am done!!
Here's my big bare sunroom!!
My mom was down a few weeks ago and got to see the paint colors. .
But the flooring wasn't down, nor were the windows in!
They finished up most things in there last week. .
And cleaned up the tools and equipment from the floor.
I moved a couple things into this room last night. .
I can't wait to find a smallish oak drop leaf table to set in the corner window area. .
Which I plan to sit at and look out of. .
just enjoying nature!!
I saw a couple I liked at the flea market. .
but it was simply too cold and wet and muddy. .
And I just wasn't in the mood to mess with it!
All in good time. .
All in good time!
One of my favorite things is this old door!
We ran across it at a huge antique barn near my mom's when we picked up the wardrobe (which is currently being finished off this week too. .can't wait to show you!!)
I really wasn't looking for a door like this when he showed it to me. .
But my gut just kept nagging at me. .
I finally decided that we could use it as the outgoing door from the room. .
And topped off with a lovely lavender paint. .
chosen by the diva herself. .
She is lovin' it too!!
And best of all. .
she was glad to get her bed back. .
And quit sleeping on the loveseat!!
This week finally looks like spring. .
AND feels like spring. .
The grass got mowed. .
The plants transplanted. .
A greenhouse of starts that need to be put into the garden. .
And some more moist, drizzly weather to settle in those new plants!!
I have a gardening weekend planned. .
I am excited to get the veggies out. .
And planning the landscape design around the new addition. .
Hope to be able to show some more photos soon!!
But for now. .
Enjoy your day!
Thanks for stopping by!
