Master Bedroom ~ Part 2

Hello there!

Is everyone enjoying their week-end?

Ours started off with a snowstorm on Friday
but luckily it only started late afternoon
so I got to have a lazy morning
then out to run my errands
and cozied up on the couch for the night

Trev spent most of Saturday shoveling
while I painted the bedroom

this is a shot of our next door neighbor
so you can see how truly crazy 
the winter has been!

Cathy stands about 5'-6"
so that will give you an idea on how high the snowbanks are
around here...
and we still have the month of March
honestly I do not know where we will put any more!

So today I will do a bit of a reveal
because it is not totally done
curtains are not yet made
my photo project is not complete
and we still need to get a new light fixture
then the flooring will be done in the spring....

So this is the before picture:

and here is how it looks today:

the headboard turned out really well
as it went from this 

to this

the wall color is a rich mocha
although the pictures really do not show
how nice it really is

I am really pleased on how it turned out
and I am a little excited

thus the reveal before it is totally finished.

I have veggies roasting in the oven
and the popcorn is ready for tonight

I cannot wait to watch the red carpet show
for the Oscars.

Enjoy your Sunday
and I will see you this week.

Friday Potpourri

Well hello again
it's Friday and that means 
it is time for some pretty

like a cherry on top of a sundae
after a long week

Cosmos have me wishing for summer and warmer weather

love this one

snowdrops are the first true sign of spring
along with crocus
mind you ~ I will not see my flower bed out front
until at least mid April
if I am lucky

still in my knit mode
have to stay cozy

Trish posted this one last week
and I love it!

nesting makes me think of 
comfort food
and what is more comforting than
a home made pie

so I am off today
and trying to figure out
do I take the day for me
do I run errands ~ do some shopping
prep the bedroom for painting

decisions ~ decisions

Lou posted this one
and it spoke to me

this one reminds me of my childhood
of days spent in the woods with my Dad
I love it.

Wishing you all a wonderful week-end
