I knew they would get tired of the polka dots but I was a *little* surprised that it was only a matter of months. Hailey was the first to take the plunge starting with this wall:
Then the rest will be: gray. solid gray.

The fish and the fireplace

Sounds like an interesting tall tale, doesn't it? I'm sure Tom could spin a wonderful yarn about that over a couple glasses of whiskey but, alas, the truth is much less exciting. I hung Tom's fish over the fireplace. :-)

As much as I hate to admit it, it looks pretty good right there.

Craft room bath decor started

I picked up this cute little wall sconce at the Sorticulture event this year. And I found the pussywillow decals in a box in the shop. (Surprise, surprise...)
So Hailey and I went to craft mart and got some silk flowers and greenery. Now that it's all together, I'm not sure I like the flower color with the iris color. No, I definitely don't. :-(

Gone, baby, GONE!

After many issues and delays, the mobile is finally moved to its new home where it will be appreciated and completely overhauled.
That little robo-cat is pretty cool.

We were sad that we had to cut down a large flowering plum tree from in front of the shop to get the mobile out.
Making sure it doesn't bottom out at the end of the driveway. They did break off some plumbing pipes..
And now we will bring in some gravel and have ample parking for the house warming party!

Craftroom storage - BEFORE

I let Tom guilt me out of having cabinets made for my craftroom when they were making the rest of them in the house. Because of that, I have boxes (and boxes... And boxes....) of craft stuff sitting on the floor.

While I still want cabinets made for certain items, Tom has redeemed himself by getting me FIVE lateral file cabinets and TWO blueprint drawer units.
Amanda and I got these suckers upstairs all by ourselves. ��

Tom will build me a platform to set these up on:

This will go a long way to getting my stuff organized. It's been a long time, but I remember some good times with my old friend, Organization. ��

Not necessary, but...

We worked on the shop yesterday and *surprise* I found a whole box of vinyl decals that I had gotten years ago for the real house.  They are finally home.

Over the front door:
I love this. <3
