We finished the family room and what a great feeling!
Took awhile but after up and down on the ladder ( and falling off once – but no harm done ), bending to paint in places low and lots of aches and pains all is well!
The carpet was installed on Wednesday and it looks wonderful. We went with a high/low loop pile that wears well for high traffic areas – something very different for us but sure do love it.
You may not see much of a difference in the pictures from before but for real it is a huge difference.
The den is finally back to normal with less furniture as well, not so crowded anymore with the love seat in there with it back in the family room where it belonged but had to be moved out because of the leather sofa – but the leather sofa sold last Monday! Yeahhhh!
On Thursday we headed up to my brother/sister in-laws and then we all went to Wisconsin Rapids to Country Freckles because I wanted to pick up my products that I had consigned there and I needed to regroup and later send up some new items. I was amazed at how much I sold in a years time. Just a shopping bag of things left.
I did buy more wool and pattern for a hooked rug and a lamp shade for the screen room lamp – nothing exciting.
Then we headed on over to Whetstone’s Antiques and I found the lid to my green depression glass biscuit jar that we purchased at a rummage sale last year for $1.00 – Cal let me have the lid for $3.00!! I see them sell at the flea markets from $25 to $45 complete. So $4 was a great deal.
Also found this smaller 8 inch Yellow Ware bowl with red rings. Don’t have any with that color so it jumped right into my hands!
And with such a busy day and a half neither of us wanted much for dinner last night so I made a home made pizza.
One of our favorite easy night meals.
This afternoon it’s over to our son Brett’s place with our whole family for my birthday celebration – goodness this is the birthday that keeps on giving…turning 70 wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be!
Blessings to all
