Birthday Wishes and a few House Pix

bdaywishesforyou

Hello, dear friends!!  Happy Labour Day to those of you who get this lovely day off :)  It is officially my LAST day of vacation…it’s back at it tomorrow after a whirlwind of a summer :)  I have had lots of inky time this weekend and thought it would be fun to work with the CR84FN colours :)  I’ve used some of the last little bit of this fabulous aqua Webster’s Pages bloomer trim.  I think I have 2 little blossoms left on the desk waiting for a very special card ;)  The pin was part of the amazing blog candy I won from Clare Buswell last month (thanks again, Clare!).

How about some more house pictures?  I was up there yesterday to check the process of the dry wall mud.  They’ve finished 2 coats and think they will be done Thursday…can’t wait…because then the painter comes in to prime everything :D  THEN the fun begins with installations (trim, fireplace, floor, kitchen, etc).  First up is the great room.  The fireplace will be to the right of this window.

Here’s the stairwell as seen from the great room. The doorway at the top is the laundry room :)

Here’s another street view…the outside has been black sheeted and wired for stone and stucco.  I have added these photos and a few more on The New House page if you want to see more :)
