What have we been doing at the ole' rainy night ranch? Well, in order to keep our hands and minds busy so that we don't notice how quiet our house has become without Noah (oh, and Brittany too!), we have begun painting everything that we come in contact with while playing the stereo at the top of it's lungs. (I know. Stereos don't have lungs per-say.) If you happen to pop over, don't stand still to long or somebody will probably paint you as well. Just a warning...
Riff tackled the bathroom a month or so ago. The paint color is "Aspiration" and I love it. We still have a long way to go in here ~ new counter tops, mirror, towel racks, flooring, yada yada, but it's a start. So much brighter and fresher.
Our house was built in 1955 and has the original tile in the bath/shower that we were trying to match. I think we came pretty close.
Shilo decided she wanted a big girl room now. She bought herself a new bedspread, sheets, pillows, nightstand and artwork, then bought a gallon of paint and went to town. (Dad and I finished it up for her, of course!) Her paint color is called Madison Road and is a really pretty jade color. It looks darker here than what it really is. Once we find (or make) some curtains, she'll be all set.
We're working on Dustin's room right now. He picked "Windsor Moss". It's a dark green, but really pretty especially when the sunlight shines through the window. (Yes, we did see the sun for a few minutes today!) Then we will move on to the guest/craft room before doing the living room. After that, I'm thinking some wallpaper peeling in the dining room and kitchen is in order. I'll keep you posted.
The craft room (okay not room, more like corner) has been busy also. More baby blocks keep emerging from my sewing machine. The Cooper blocks are an order from my etsy shop and the Noah blocks are for...Noah. He turns 1 next Sunday - without Grandma & Grandpa to sing happy birthday to him, I might add. (a tear may be sliding down my cheek right now)
I've been trying to paint a "On A Rainy Night" sign to hang above my computer but other things keep taking precedence. I wonder if my family's getting tired of eating dinner with the guest being this wooden board?
There's some secret knitting projects going on in the evenings as well as some embroidery that I can't yet talk about. Keeping busy, busy, busy, but we know all to well that our Noah isn't here. We also know that he is perfectly fine without us ~ it's Grandma and Grandpa who aren't fine without him. Wah!!!
Enough of my pity party. I promise not to whine anymore. Well, at least not where you can "hear" me...
Anybody need anything painted?
