More Pics, More Projects

My latest project is our upstairs half-bath-maybe-someday, a room I've never shown you before. But I'll just finish these two walls and move on to the sleeping porch. My mom will arrive from CA on Wednesday so when I show her this upstairs room I at least can say, "I've only just started on this."
I like this blue. I bought a small can of "oops paint," poured it into a large empty can, then added white. So don't ask me what it's called... I may just tell you "Debra's Blue," as a friend of mine in the 90's used to call cornflower blue. I smile when I remember that. And her.

Everything needs a second coat so do not peek too closely.

Oh, and the cord running up the window, well, ignore that. Lennon and McCartney's litter boxes are in this room so we run the fan which must be plugged into the ceiling light (!)...Oh, the joys of old houses...

I just wanted you to know where I am and what I'm doing... and why I am not here in Blogland more often.

Oh, and the sink and vanity are something we found at a yard sale months ago for just $15. Are yard sales terrific, or what?

Hi Debra, I have been visiting your blog for some time now, and I really enjoy it. It gives me a restful feeling, when I hear what you have to say, and I do actually hear your writings. You are welcome to visit my blog at
