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.
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 . . .
