Front Door, Gargoyles and Coffee Table

The first coat of paint after the primer. Rather than repaint it orange, we have selected a rust orange to coordinate with the mortar color.
Still needs another coat or two but it's getting there. Hopefully I get the final coats complete before BSU homecoming next weekend.













Greg hung up the gargoyle photos from our honeymoon.











First coat of paint on the coffee table top. Another coat and the tile can be installed. Almost done....

A peeling front door


The front door paint is starting to peel away. Time for a fresh coat of paint, and a fresh new color, before winter weather arrives.




Tonight a coat of primer was put on the side lights. Wow, it is very bright. Glad we don't want a white front door.

Poppy and Sophie















Welcome the newest additions to the Jones Family...Poppy and Sophie. We adopted them from a local Humane Society. They are about 4 months old. We were happy to hear they would let us bring them home today rather than the usual 3-day waiting period. They are having fun sneaking through the house...lots of energy. Poppy has climbed up my jeans and shirt 3
times...because I wasn't paying enough attention. Sophie seems to think the litter box is the beach...she just likes to lay in it. Finally, the cats, and Greg, have worn out. Nap time.

Dining Room Curtains are Done!

After a long delay, I finally finished the dining room curtains. I couldn't find any fabric that I liked at work or at the local fabric stores so I began my search online. I opted for a bold organic print and I think it works well. I really like how the grommets worked and will likely use them again for curtains in other rooms of the house. Looks like my many years of sewing for 4-H have paid off. Hmmm...wonder what our next project will be?
