Larkspur, crisp white linens and lots of photography and painting…
it has been a busy week over here.
And next week, is looking even busier.
But today, it is all about the weekend view and what I have been working on.
Last week, I was covered in paint. From head to toe.
I had drips in my hair. On my sunglasses and shirt and a face that were freckled with Simply White.
Such is the way it is when you are painting a ceiling. And we are wrapped up and I can’t tell you how amazingly bright and crisp the walls and ceiling are now. And I have a confession…
White? Or Dingy?
That ceiling? It is beaded board and wood framing and I had 3 gallons of Simply White ready to go…and I happily started painting away and then noticed something…
What I thought was white was not so white next to the WHITE.
As in- that ceiling was looking more like a shade of dingy than a shade of white. I don’t remember the color we used when we painted last time- I believe it was just off the shelf white- but compared to Simply White?
That paint was Simply Dingy.
Larkspur & linens
What could be prettier than crisp white linens with soft details and a few clippings of fresh larkspur?
I worked on some product photography yesterday that involved those beauties.
And of course I snapped a few extra photos to share with you here- so that is coming your way.
I think you will absolutely love.these.linens. So soft and so good!
A Whole House Renovation
I mentioned last week that I am working on a whole house renovation.
I will share the first peek at the chippy paint, charming details and spaces with you this week
– so stay tuned.
Washing Machine Woes
This week has been a week of plumbing issues and renovation snags. In between broken pipes, uncovering a hornets nest (and a sting on the forehead) and shipping delays…. our washing machine stopped working.
I drained it.
Took everything apart trying to find the issue- put it back together.
Tried it again. Drained it again. And repeat. repeat.repeat. UGH.
then the public laundry mat became my friend
Our LG machines have honestly been the best out of any we have bought before-
and they have lasted for about 10 years where the previous 2 brands were done after 3 years
(basically, after the warranty period when a repair costs as much as a new machine)
So we are looking for a new one.
And we are thinking of getting an LG that is a combo washer & dryer and is ventless…
does anyone have any experience with any machines like that?
Would appreciate your feedback if you do.
Coming your way:
That whole house renovation I mentioned
A peek at some of the projects we have been doing
and they have been a bit of a doozy lately…
and something fun
And before you know it, we will be into autumn decorating and ideas.
Which is INSANE to me.
But I am always a little seasonally confused… so bring on the pumpkins (and Christmas trees)
even though it is in the 90’s again this week.
Happy weekend everyone.
