I am finally on line at our new home and it feels so good!
I have missed you all so much :)
We are still in the moving and fixing stages
of settling in and it will probably be that way for months to come,
but every day it becoming more like home.
We are loving our new place and feeling totally blessed.
Here are a few photos of our bathroom redo.
This is what we were waiting to get done,
so that we could move in.
I surprised myself by doing the floor while Steve was out of town on business.
Our plan was to try and fix the old floor,
but the more I tried the more I realized that it needed to be replaced.
So, I started tearing out the old floor.
Then I made a trip to Home Depot
and ask for everything that I needed to put in a vinyl floor.
It was one large piece of vinyl,
so I measured three times and then started to cut.
By the time Steve got home that evening I had it finished,
cut, glued and calked.
I have to say that I was pretty proud of myself.
Steve was delighted and amazed
and went to work the next day and told all of his co-workers
what I did while he was away.
The before photo of the tub was actually about three days, into cleaning it.
That’s when I remembered to take photos.
Look at the walls.
Steve had to tear them out and replace them and the walls behind them.
Behind that ugly wall was a garden of mold.
If you look very close you will see that they had the faucet attached with duct tape.
No wonder there was mold.
It was a mess!
The tub was a wonderful old tub,
and I had to scrub and save it.
It took almost three pumice stones as well as lots of bleach
and cleaners, but I love it.
Oh, this was my view this morning from the front porch . . .
Oh, the smell of new mown hay . . .
“How Sweet It Is!”
In this photo you can see the top of our picket fence.
It’s a project that we started
and then put on hold to do more timely things.
"Have a wonderful weekend"
We’ll be working on my new studio,
We need to get it done,
so that we can move the remainder of our belongings
and get our old house on the market.
