Tile Update

It's starting to look better.

 Work has been a little slower over the Holidays
The tile is up around the bathtub now. 

Someone keeps taking breaks

I think he's grew over Christmas break. Check those high waters out :)

I'm hoping everyone had a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Blessed New Year.

The floor is a Done Deal!

This is Justin! My Niece's fiance. He's such a whiz at tiling.
He's been a BIG help on this bathroom.

The color I went with is Roman Beige
This is such a Neutral Color that it will go with almost everything.

The Floor is Finished!

But as you can see~Still a lot to be done.

It's NOT Pink Tile anymore...

Now I just have to figure out WHAT the Heck did we do! and HOW do I get this turned into a bathroom Hopefully within
the next week (At least that's my goal)

As they say on "Bob the Builder" Can We Fix It?


I'll wait to Answer that Question!

Hope Everyone had a Great Weekend.

Starting on the Pink Bathroom

My Son is enjoying the Demo Work

Oh yeah! This Pink has gotta go.

Finally got to start on that pink bathroom this week.

To my new followers. This is an older house that we purchased to either flip or live in ourselves.

Hopefully by the time we finish We will have our minds made up.

This Could Take Awhile :)

Thanksgiving Weekend

                                                                                      The rake did fit his hand. 
                     My son was a trooper today. He raked leaves most of the day with little (OK more than a little)  complaining.

Only problem was that rake fit my hand too.
I now know I'm outta shape.

This job was better for me.

Hope everyone is having a Great Weekend

First Thanksgiving without Mom

   I'm thankful for a lot of things in my life. My family and my friends are #1 on that list.

I'm also thankful that I got to spend so many years with my Mom. She was such a tough lady, deep in my heart I thought she was going to live forever. 

This picture was taken quite a few years ago.
But this is Mom, the 8 girls and 1 of my brothers.

I hope Everyone has a Nice Thanksgiving.

Another Busy Day.

Nope Aint Raked Yet~I like to wait until all the leaves fall :-)

This picture isn't Great but can you see the lake?

Picked this color out for 2 of the bedrooms in this house.

(Calming Green with shell white trim.)

Hope you can see the contrast between the two.

What a Bomb Shelter? Yep we have that too

A Bomb Shelter is also in this house (The way things are going we may need one of those)
Right now we are using it to store paint and supplies we need to fix the place up.

Wonder how those walls will hold up to a couple of coats of paint.?

Haven't seen a mail box on a house in a long time.

The Mail Man delivers Mail to this box but I'm wondering why all the other houses in the area has Mail Boxes at the street.
An Older lady owned this house infact she bought it new with her husband in 1957.   I'm wondering if the Postal Service delivered to her door because of  a health condition.
