Where Rustic Living Meets Refined Elegance

I can feel the warmth!

So it's getting closer each day!! The fireplaces have been installed and they look fabulous!

I have to say the installers probably thought I was a crazy woman as I kept coming in saying over and over how beautiful they looked and how happy I was to see them finally be put in. I think at one point I actually shrieked and clapped my hands but I'm not sure, it's all a blur right now but I do remember them looking at me really funny.

And then came insulation and then........DRYWALL!!! Ok I have to admit it, these guys in the picture, I'm actually pretty certain they think I'm Koo Koo for Cocoa Puffs. After being gone working for a week I came back to see this... my living room drywalled. Real walls, white, no bare studs, no icky spider webs and brown wood, real walls ready for painting. It brought tears to my eyes, seriously. They turned around looking at me I'm sure wondering who this crazy woman was wondering in, crying and saying repeatedly, "Thank you! Thank you!" I soon realized they didn't speak much english so I then said "Muy Bonita! Muy Bonita!" They still had this look on their faces like "What's with this broad?" Then my daughters boyfriend who speaks spanish came in and translated my joy for me. I dont' know what he said but they nodded their heads and went back to work so they must have realized I wasn't totally insane or of any danger.

The entry to my half bath is on it's way to being just what I wanted.

Today the scissor lift arrived! Fun AND functional. So tomorrow this room gets the ceiling cleaned and ready for paint the beams stained. Going to busy day!
