House Update, Jewelry and Other Stuff Too!

Just thought I'd pop in for an update!  The house is almost DONE!!!  Can you believe it?  I can't!!  After over six months of construction, it is almost complete.  The laundry room is done, the room with no name is done, the living room is done, two exterior doors have been replaced.  The only thing left is a third exterior door which was an odd size and had to be special ordered.  But it's in and Tom will be here to install it soon, I'm sure.  Even the painting is done!  I do still have to make lots of curtains, but that'll keep.  I'll take some photos this weekend to show you the finished rooms.

So, after a torturous week last week, filled with painting, stripping floors, cleaning, re-arranging, etc., I have SO enjoyed this week.

It's been rainy, cold, damp and generally yuck, so I've mostly stayed home and made jewelry, done a bit of redecorating upstairs, had dinner one night with Liz, went antiquing one day with Anne....fun stuff!

I almost hate to see the week end!!

You'll find new jewelry on my jewelry Etsy site:  www.FrenchSentiments.Etsy.com and new antique-y stuff on my other Etsy site:  www.KathyBarrick.Etsy.com.

Wishing you all a great weekend!
