all in the guest room…
awaiting our first guests!

they will be THRILLED to know we FINALLY put a king size bed in the guest room!
no more squeezing & sleeping all cramped…
”whew”… brings me peace of mind knowing they’ll be more comfortable!

this one is a door too!


made this one about six years ago… from a frame of an old glass panel door.
found it at a really neat salvage shop in Houston…
rusted out a sheet of pressed tin…
nailed it to the panel… and “ta-dah”…
we had a headboard… of sorts!

all ready for our guests!


bits o honey…
the candy IS good…
but the “honey” of having company is WAY sweeter!

and all that was left… a pile of crust!

doesn’t it feel that way sometimes!
after the whirlwind of school mornings!
kids up…
breakfast eaten…
teeth brushed…
lunches made…
kids dressed…
hair fixed…
you KNOW… you get the point…

rush out the door…
to get to school… late (we were tardy today… slip & all… oops)…
to get back home and face the crumbs!
good crumbs though… always find myself wondering how she’s doing
as i clean up the leftovers of the morning!
already missing her!

i think we’re still finding our way in getting with the swing of things…
this back to school thing!
all i know… the house sure is quiet with just one little chickadee around!

doors
so with the hubby traveling four nights a week…
it has been a bit challenging getting all “moved in”… or settled… i should say.
you know those TWO person jobs… sure seems to be lots of THOSE…
also seems as though lately there is just NOT enough time to get it all done.
i am starting to understand why they say moving is such a major “life stress”!
reallllly!

there is just SO much to do…
between ordering window coverings… getting the landscaping rolling…
getting the fence installed… ordering furniture… on & on…
it FEELS really slow going!

we DID finally get the extra shelving in our closet…
shoes and such are finally OFF the floor!
can you see the smile on my face!  :)

little by little we’re getting there!

last week… this little chickadee & i ran by a home improvement store…
for a good ‘ol door!

found a REALLY heavy solid core door in their remnant area!

painted… sanded… distressed… popped on some vintage hardware…

to make a headboard!

there is that smile on my face again!  :)
