A Busy Week Indeed

Good evening sweet blogging buddies.
We have been extremely busy this past week.
Last Saturday my nephew got married.

Floor is down in bedroom. 

Not sure where this yellow shadow came from.

Hand scraped hickory wood floor.

Monday a trip to Home Depot for floor trim.

Tuesday I went to a Detroit Tiger event
where Dave Rozema and Dan Petry were.
These were our pitchers for the 1984 champs.

Wednesday Bob and I went on a pick.
We purchased a blue pie safe,
Hoosier cabinet, victrola and many small prims.

Yesterday, our journey took us to see Mikey's baseball game.
Double header and his team won both games. 
Woohoo for our grandson!

Getting back to my post.

Now we have to decide if trim needs to go up near the ceiling.
What do you think?

I really wanted a ceiling medallion.

Gramma B had medallions in every room of her farmhouse.
Hers were made from plaster,
this one is painted plastic.

Not sure if I showed you the finished door with shelves.

Then the trim around the bedroom entrance.
Don't you agree we need to get a new
or old door here too?

We will probably get new wood doors
as it would be a hard undertaking to find 4 old doors the same.
I am thinking  four panel ones.

I came home tonight and the floor trim is all complete.
Since we have a graduation party tomorrow,
possibly the furniture might go in on Sunday.
Keeping my fingers crossed we have some time.

Still have to make the curtains...
finish my penny rug...
find a wrought iron hook for something special we found.
Oh I so cannot wait to finally be able to finish up
and show you what all of Bob's hard work has done
to create this wonderful new living space.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

TGIF Blessings To All!
