A Sneak Peek!

Happy Thanksgiving, Ladies! I just couldn't wait to give you all a sneak peek of the addition. This will be our den, but my carpenter and I moved the table in, so we can eat in there for Thanksgiving. We still have to frame the doors and work on the cabinets doors, but we will be able to move furniture in next week!
Happy Thanksgiving!

Christmas Snippets

Hi All,
I haven't posted much Christmas at the Cape house, as it soon will all be changing. This room, which is now our living room will be come the dining room. I will have much more space here for my table, and the fireplace will be a great addition. Our new den should be completed within a week. Let the furniture moving begin!

The stairway is all decorated. Merry and bright!
HOHOHO!

Addition Update!

Hi All,
I went out while the guys were at lunch and snapped a few pics for you!
I just couldn't help myself and do a little decorating on the porch!
The paneling is all up on the ceiling and walls.
Stan is building the window sills to match the original house.
We have a coat of stain on the door going into the garage. I love my new door!

I know It's Early, but....


Hi All,
I haven't posted for awhile. Lot's going on here at the little house. As the carpenters press on, we are trying to be all ready for the Christmas house walk on Dec. 4th. Yikes! I thought I should get as much decorated, as possible. As soon as my new room and studio apartment are finished, I will have to get in there and decorate fast, before the Dec. 4th date. Here a a couple of vignettes to share with you today.
My new snowman pic and little tree on the 1st landing of the stairs...
Arrangement on the tea cart... I love the flameless candles with the timers!

Hope you are having a good week. I will post pics soon on the addition progress. Stay tuned!!!

Scenery!

Hi All,
I try never to take for granted the beautiful land around me that I see on my travels around my area.
I pass by this little farm frequently on the way to the town where I play tennis. I love seeing these goats, as I pass by.

Another scene I see on the way to the golf course, where my son works. All of these fields have been harvested.
Last but not least, the cupola went up today and the weather vane. It is a little smaller than I would like, but I hadn't realized how massive the roof would be. It looks great, tho.
