Excuses, excuses.... ?

I do have good reasons to be away from blog land. July has been busy with lots of activities, one of which is renovations.

This year, we are doing both the dinning room and the living room.

It's messy and time consuming but oh so rewarding when completed.

I'm so glad that wall paper is gone! Oh, and that fire place mantel too! I think it was added much later. It really does not represent the time period of our home.

Once we took the plaster off the walls, we were able to determine if my plan to have an exposed brick wall on your right (the same wall as the built in cabinet) was feasible. Sadly, it wasn't. The wall was too damaged to be exposed.

But, the fire place looks great!

Comes complete with spider web for that added decorating touch! lol

I'm all set for Halloween! lol

Stephen will be making a mantel for it.

The only brick exposed will be that of the fireplace chimney.

So, there you have it, my excuse for being away from blog land. I'll spare you the living room for now! ;o)

As for the draw, I have all the names printed out and I will post the winner this weekend.

We now have Internet at the Shoppe, so I'm hopping to be more productive in my personal life. I do enjoy blog land and reading from my list of amazing blog friends, but work always seemed to take priority. Now with the Internet at the Shoppe, things will change and I should be back on track! ;o)

Off to do a bit of catching up! Thank you for your patience!
