it’s been busy

(whoops – i did it wrong…lemme try again)

I haven’t been blogging much recently, but I *have* been doing a few other things… below you’ll find some new photos of the still unfinished project.  The final touches will probably be in place by, um, say, early March.  Seeing as it’s mid-February now, I don’t see why I can’t handle things for another 2 – 3 weeks.

[wow!  dashboard changes… thanks for your patience as i navigate the new system..]

Ok, so…here’s some stuff!

The old bathroom –

side view of OLD bathroom...ugly, huh?

the old sink vanity:

now this is sitting in my garage, awaiting its next mission: discard pile? or additional storage?

the old bathroom, front view:

old light & cabinet (tri-door)

Compared to… the NEW stuff!

Check out the NEW bathroom, side view: side view two

the NEW sink vanity: boardwalk vanity

the NEW bathroom faucet! old fashioned faucet

the NEW bathroom light! tiffany lamp :)

(isn’t she pretty? there’s stained glass throughout the house…thought this kinda went with the theme…)

Oh, and don’t get me started on the kitchen… that’s a whole ‘nother post! but just to whet your appetite –

Before: the last hand-washed dishes in the sink After: no sink!

Before:

the stove nook...very cluttered. blech.

After:

stove nook...empty.

more images forthcoming …as my kitchen is rebuilt and my life gradually comes out of caios!  :)

some photos…

here are a few things I’ve been up to this weekend…(stayed up waaaaaaaaaaaaay too late last night, but have documentation for how I spent that time) :D

here’s the overall (albeit fuzzy) view:

and the tree :)
rain's christmas tree

my grandmother had a tradition – a huge collection of Santas she collected over the years… which spilled out from on top of her mantel into her living room… (but mostly on the mantel). So, after she passed, and after I had a home of my own, I began my own Santa collection…it makes me smile to think of her when i look at them :)
Stantas on the mantel...

and a friend gave this to me a while ago – this is the first time I’ve used it. a beautiful little Victorian house w/ a light inside… isn’t it precious? Might be hard to see, but there’s snow on the top! and a little movable swing on the front porch… so sweet.

in a few days I’ll be able to start my ornaments… they’re painted glass – this year (thanks to my helpful IT-like friends & Flickr, i’ll be able to share images with you!)
Have a great start to your weeks ahead!
