We have a winner...

We have a winner for the flooring selection upstairs! Yay.
I knew I was looking for a sisal or a sea grass but was having trouble deciding on color. I like the natural color, but was open to something I haven't used before. I spotted a brown  that was a gorgeous color, but it went plum in my house. Then it happened! I reached for a swatch of a bleached whitish color and thought "this is interesting".

Interesting it was! It seamed to work in every room.

The water heater was replaced yesterday, along with half of the mismatched electrical plates
and switches.
Five dimmers added. 
Chandelier was relocated and hung in the master bed room. 
And last but not least, the built in on the left side of the fireplace in the master bed room was ever so
 carefully removed. 
And lucky me, I saved it for the garage. I can always use more storage!

I can officially see progress now and I don't want to stop.

The roof replacement is starting today and will take about
three days. I've never replaced a roof so this will be the first one!

I started to add a Greek key trim on both sides of my pillows.

Do I dare say I'm getting ready for Fall?
I think I am...

Stay tuned as things around here shape up.
Let's face it, a water heater and a roof are necessary, but not
very pretty!

Thanks for stopping in today,



  1. Love your list of accomplishments and the floor covering you picked!

    1. Why thank you. I feel like the last time I slept was weeks ago! I'm looking forward to seeing the good pretty stuff take shape. Like the flooring....
