Getting things done

We are so happy that our little room is done. It has added 10 feet of setting, and a fresh new look to our back door entry. A nice place to set, read, and change shoes in the winter. You have no idea how glad I am that it is done:)
Painted a shelf that was already here while it was a craft room. I am going to use it for some of our favorite books. I also added the Benn's that had been used in the pantry. I thought they would be handy...not sure what will go in them yet. The bottom shelf will go for games, markers for the grandkids. We could put a small TV in here sense the cable is ready...not sure I want to do that. At one point a twin bed was in this room. It was for my Mother. She stayed with us for a few months and cold not go upstairs. So we put a small TV in so that she could rest and watch her soaps. At another time it was a playroom for our Granddaughter Kayla. We put in the sink, ref, stove, chairs and table. This was her kitchen next to mine. A lot of foodies, tea parties, and listening to her talk to her babies. It is a good room!

At this point you wonder if it was the right thing, but with the progress I felt it was perfect.

Most of you know that I live in a 1906 cottage farm house. Arney is on top of the barn fixing very old wiring. The wind has been blowing really hard, so some stuff came lose. Arney was not looking forward to going up there, but being the adventurer that he is it was calling him. He said, "watch me in case I fall." Lovely last words from my guy.

Nothing like the fear of falling on a cold windy day.

Hello. I am new to your blog and just wanted to let you know that I enjoyed my visit here today. Your new room is great! I love the fabric you used for it. I have enjoyed looking through some of your older posts and catching up with you. I think it's neat that you live in an 1906 farm house. Enjoy your day! Twyla

Oh, Mary,,I Love the look of your new room. I would curl up on those bench seats and read and watch it snow. And no TV,,it looks so much more peaceful without one.
My Hub is headed up your way on Dec.5. Going to see his daughter in Northern Idaho and then they are driving to the Washington Penisula to see his parents and sister. I wish I could go but gotta work. He hasn't seen parents for 11 years. They are having some bad weather there now, hope it clears up before he has to drive over the cascades.
Have a lovely Thursday,Mary!

Your room looks absolutely wonderful. The stripes make it look so neat and crisp.

Dan no longer puts up Christmas lights because he doesn't feel comfortable going up on the roof anymore.
