A Single Week in January

Last Sunday I finished painting the inside of the linen closet down in our house in Cayce. We just need to get the doors painted and rehung and the trim work needs to be painted with the crisp white. Week after this I will be down for an entire week to paint in other rooms and to clean up in the yard some. We are slowly getting the house ready to sell... I am so hoping by Summer we will be ready to list it.

 I created this fun postcard for a friend that had reached 1000 subscribers on her You Tube Channel. I love my quirky little bees.
 Scott has made some progress on the little bonus room here at the cottage so it won't be long til we can paint in there and put the room back together. I'm kinda living in a "pile" until it is done as everything that was in there is now out in this main room. Makes it difficult to work on any larger projects.The termites had come in and ate all the sheetrock tape, old wall paper and some of the paper from the sides of the sheetrock.  It will be a nice cozy little room shortly.

 Yesterday we explored an Antique shop since it was such a dreary day. I found this lovely Kerr jar filled with buttons and a crystal that I will be creating a beaded suncatcher. It was so much fun looking through all the old stuff! Afterwards we went to Tito's for some delicious authentic New York Italian Calzones. YUM! All in all we had a GREAT day together... but then we always do together.


  1. You guys have done so much work at both places. I'm sure you'll be relieved when the house has sold.

    Yes, you two seem to just plain enjoy each other's company. You are blessed. :)

  2. I hope the house all comes together well for sale--such a process, I am sure. You have my sympathy as you get everything spiffed and ready. Confession: I hate painting in houses. I avoid it at all costs. It must be done this year though. Sigh.

    Glad you had a lovely day--productive, tasty, interesting!

  3. The button jar is really neat! The shelves look great!
