New Pictures

Who else besides me is excited to turn the calendar over to March?  Warmer days, tulips sprouting and complaints of hot weather have to be coming soon!  I did see a robin this morning!


I have new pictures to show you.  I’m almost embarrassed to tell you I received these for my birthday.  Don’t hate me because I’m spoiled!    :-}  (well, loved)


On the opposite end of our downstairs family room (it’s the one done in the fox hunt theme I’ve shown pictures of before) we have a rec room with a bar.

See the black shelf on the left side of the picture?



My sisters in law gave me these darling pictures for my birthday and we decided to place them on the shelf.







It seems to be a perfect spot. Luckily the shelf was hung at the right height for the pictures to lean on nicely.  Lord help me if Mr. Brown Socks had to rehang it!  That is not the sort of around the house tasks he enjoys doing.






A house is always a work in progress.  I would still like to paint this old refrigerator black.

We just submitted paperwork for our passport this morning.  The wedding plans are in full swing. 

It was nice you stopped by.  I hope you’ll let me know you were here.  Let me know you were here so I can visit you too.

Happy March,

Your downstairs bar area is really lovely, Donna!
I have black appliances in my kitchen & I HATE them! They show all the dust & fingerprints horribly. I am constantly cleaning & wiping & they never stay nice for very long. Just an FYI.

Thanks for the compliment on my bargain purchase. It still needs lots of work to make it special but that's half the fun, huh?
