An Homage to My Grandmother, My Office, & Senor Es


Most people think it's a sin to paint natural wood, but I just couldn't live with it. I love it now.



All of her adult life my gram longed for a Gone with the Wind lamp. She never got one, so this lamp is a kind of homage to her. Plus, it works now that I live in the south.



I painted the kitchen cupboards again. It might stick this time.


My office. No window, but it's cute anyway.

some new pictures


Remember when Es looked like this?



Now look at him...





A fabulous piano leg I found at the flea market today...



Es is obsessed with a Christmas picture in my family room. I catch him staring at Santa all the time. I think he wants to fly.

My floor projects





Porch

I just finished two projects: a floorcloth for my dining room and a trompe l'oeil floorcloth for the front porch. I don't think the pictures really do them justice, but I'm happy to host anyone interested in inspecting them more closely :-)

My mess of a back yard






I spent most of the day clearing out brush and limbs from the ice storm that the sellers never cleaned up. What a mess! Plus, I'm including some pics of Es and the bath--his new favorite fascination.

Haunted Tennessee


Elijah and I visited Adams, TN during his visit. It's the site of the infamous Bell Witch hauntings--very interesting and creepy. We visited during a terrible thunder storm, which was quite atmospheric. If you've seen An American Haunting with Sissy Spacek and Donald Sutherland, it's based on this haunting.

My new porch light and monogram flag





I wired my first light fixture today! My dad has always helped me before, so I was excited to do it right!
