The damp, chilly, gloomy days of November in New England have definitely arrived this week. It leaves you with a cold, raw feeling, but I secretly kind of enjoy it. It just makes you want to wrap up in a blanket, get cozy and enjoy your home.
Last week, I went up to visit my Mom and she does primitive in such a spectacular way.
The weather in New England has been seriously beautiful and warm lately. So, earlier this week, I took a little walk to investigate our property and I was excited to see some bittersweet growing here and there. It's an invasive vine, but I'm kind of always drawn to its beauty and color.
Hey everyone! The unpacking and cleaning is going well here at the new house. My patience is a little lacking because, as typical, I want things done like yesterday.
Actually, I'm kind of having like a I'm dying to paint because then the rooms will really start to come together coupled with a damn I really don't want to paint because it's such a chore and I need to do all the trim. I'm sure you've all felt that way.
My goal for earlier this week was to at least clear a path in the dining room so every four steps we didn't need to move a box to create a path. I mostly succeeded. There are still a couple of random boxes in a corner, but it no longer is the command station of moving that is was a week ago.
Since I got the room looking halfway civilized, I decided to decorate the table for fall.
Thanks to my love, I'm becoming more and more comfortable with sanding and staining furniture. It's really taking Number Fifty-Three in a new direction, furniture wise, as I am now able to take on way more diversified projects.
