So, I'm assuming you will forgive my bloggy absence this past few weeks. I've been painting the Picket Fence digs. It all started with a window removal. This is the old window. Which mind you, I loved. It just made things a bit ...dark. In an old house you live with elegance, character, moving walls, squeaking floorboards and most often ...a severe lack of light. I wanted light , hence , a pre Christmas reno.... madness. Yes, the people who told me I was mad, painting prior to Christmas. You were right .
See below..... dark.com :)
Anyway, this is the new window, forgive it's unpainted state, but you will get the idea. It goes all the way to our very high ceiling. I bought it for $13 on Ebay. Score :) See the pressed tin on the walls .... I'm still stroking it. I've always wanted tin and due to some damaged tiles...I have tin :)
I love him :) Perhaps even more so, with tin ;)
And nearly after... see the window in the next picture.
Worth it ? Yes :)
Wishing you all a Picket Fence kind of Christmas. That is, a beautiful , happy, family orientated ,simple kind of Christmas. Filled with joy, love and plenty of lovely Christmas food :)
Thank-you for your friendship, patience and lovely comments and emails throughout the year, you've so often made me smile. See you next year... Cant wait ...See you there with bells on !!
