Back in Business

For a few weeks now I have had issues with my website and the blogging page. Hopefully, this is in the past and if there are any other kinks maybe they will be minor.  I have missed blogging on a regular basis. There is so much going on here I feel like I have to type fast to get it all in.

Painting continues in all areas of the house, partially because I purchased two gallons of paint that were either the wrong color or wrong finish.  So instead of wasting them I decided to use them in different rooms.  At this point the kiddos guest room is painted and Andrew is installing the floor.  The cabinet that will house their books and toys has been chalk painted.  Bedding has been purchased.  If the floor is finished today, the furniture will go in tomorrow.  Yay!!

The floor is going in and looks beautiful with the wall color – Aleutian by Sherwin Williams.

Guest Room #1 (the first room I started) is on hold because Andrew is living in it.  However, I finished painting the crib ends that will become the headboard and that is almost ready to be installed.

Primer – then the semi-gloss

The hallway painting is almost finished.  The banister is a huge job and I am still working on the primer coat.  The doors and trim have all been primed so we are close to being finished with that.

Needs a little tweaking like outlet switch plates but I love it.

My coffee center is finished.  The walls were painted with Alabaster by Sherwin Williams and the shelves were stained with Medium Walnut Danish Oil.  Not only does it look great but it frees up my kitchen counters. The Pioneer Woman has some pretty mugs that would look so nice there (I just adore her products).  Things in the kitchen are beginning to feel more organized.

An antique coffee grinder finally has a home.

We received these Oma and Opa coffee mugs as gifts. The larger ones are from Taz.

This wooden bowl gets moved from room to room. Pumpkins and fall foliage bring the outdoors in.

 

Steve and I bought this bakers table in Hillsville, Virginia at least 20 years ago.

The cats have their own kitty cafe. Here is Apollo snacking. The first wooden bowl Steve made is their food bowl.

The electrician was here to install the panels in the workshop. Duke Power should be hooking us up to electricity soon.  The boys have purchased woodworking tools and have several prototypes ready.  We are preparing wooden serving trays to give away as promotional items to Fall church festivals.  And the list goes on and on…

Taz and Breezy seem to be getting over the crud which we have been giving each other back and forth for a month.  Runny noses and coughs are no fun.  Maybe the Elderberry Syrup I made helped make us all feel better.

Pictures are so much better than words so I hope you get an idea of what we have been working on.  I am glad to be back at work and am looking forward to sharing more Passion Flower Farm with you.

Share the passion,

Barbara
