More Renovations Going On ...

Hello my dear friends,

we are doing it again ... more renovations.

Not only are we finally fixing up our powder room on the main floor after years of planning on doing so but never gotten to do it but we are also renewing most of the windows on the upper floor too. I hate to say that things are not going as I had hoped so far with the windows. It has been now 3 months now and still no new windows. Three weeks ago it was meant to happen but then it rained for 45 minutes and the installers called and cancelled the appointment on us which didn't make me very happy. Now they are meant to come this Friday morning but rain is again forecasted  so it isn't guarantied that it will happen this time.

My little crafting space looks like this since weeks now.

 I didn't want to put everything back again to only pull everything apart again. 

We are having the window in our master bedroom enlarged and to look a little more like our dining room window. Hopefully it will work out OK. They will have to cut about a foot down from the original opening to make it larger for the new window. Oh my ... I am so worried right now. It seems that every time we have work done on our house or in our garden and it is a bigger job, my husband is away with work so I am on my own with all of it. At times I don't mind but at others I sure do. Please, keep your fingers crossed there will be no problems this time.

This is the 'before' with the original windows as old as our house.

I am hoping that I will be able to share a 'after' picture very soon and that I will still be able to smile after it has been done. I get so stressed out whenever we do renovations, always have done and I think, always will. Like I said ... fingers crossed everyone! ... Thank you!

They next two weeks are going to be so crazy busy for me with all sorts.

Our pool is going to be winterized and so is our underground sprinkler system. Our new garage door needs repairs from when it was installed 9 weeks ago (another waiting game for me) and hopefully the new windows will be getting installed. I am also going to a concert with my older daughter Ashleigh to see Elton John tomorrow and next week I am in Toronto with my younger daughter Caylagh for a concert with Adele! (It was her 16th birthday gift from us) And not to forget that I have a long to-do list of all sorts of things I want to strip and paint before it gets cooler ... like our entire upstairs hallway and foyer amongst many bits and piece of furniture and accessories too. And I also like to be a little more creative with making pincushions and sorts. Oh and last but not least ... Christmas is on it's way too! See, I told you ... it is never ending but at least I won't have time to get bored very soon.

Thank you for taking the time to visit me today and I hope you have enjoyed your short stay.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.


  1. I feel your pain. Been there, done that. You'll most certainly enjoy the end result so try to endure all the bad stuff from now until then.

    Yes, Christmas is right around the corner, isn't it? YIKKES!!!
