Please don't be shy ~ I love when you leave comments
so I know you've been by for a visit.

Saturday, August 24

Where are the new mice, bears and bunnies you ask?  Here, there and everywhere!  I know it has been some time since I've had anything new to show you.  Rest assured they are under construction ~ as it feels is our home as well.

We've bit the bullet and have started the process of re-doing the flooring in our entire house.  Yay!  The fun part was of course going to the flooring store and picking out new materials.  Then the realization set in ~ the realization that NOW is the time to complete some rather messy jobs around the house ~ BEFORE the new carpeting is installed.  So Mr. Cobblestone and I have been busy.  

It started with painting baseboards, which lead to painting whole rooms, refinishing the lower kitchen cabinets and even adding a wall or two.  Please don't report me to the HGVT gurus who worship at the altar of open concept.  Come on ~ our quaint and cozy New England style cape has no business trying to be open concept.  I think the house is happier now that we've put it back to the way it should be.

Rockport Harbor
We have manged to do a bit more exploring ~ more about that in a later post ~ and we try to enjoy our harbor as often as we can.

I was happy to spot these buttercups blooming along the 
roadside one evening on our walk to the harbor.  
Did you too hold them under chins when you were a 
kid  to see if that person liked butter?   
Takes you back, doesn't it . . .


  1. it's your house and you can do it anyway you want. I swear, I won't report you. Don't blame me if a bunch of workers show up to demo a wall.

    take care, and hope the process goes quickly.


    1. Thanks, Lisa. One room completely done ~ 8 more to go! Hope I survive! ;) Just when we had a house exactly like we wanted it, we moved. Ah well ~ Maine is definitely worth it!

      Looking forward to seeing what you have to offer us for Halloween this year. Your work has such an innocence about it.

      Be well! xxx
