|12 Ruffled Grouse feeding in our driveway|
We moved in to the house our daughter used to live in a month ago....wowsers, is it that long ago? The house isn't new.... part of it is two stories built in 1937 with three charming bedrooms upstairs. An addition was built in 2000 which has a master bedroom, bathroom and living room. It is smaller but very cozy indeed. We are fortunate to have lots of huge mature trees surrounding 2.4 acres. So far, we have seen a fox, deer, ruffled grouse and hear coyotes at night.
|This cat came to live here in the summer she has a very lovable disposition. I wonder how anyone could get rid of a cat like her? She is a good mouser too. |
We call her Titty Tatterson.....it's a long story :)
I picked colors from a paint chip this summer when I was in BC so it was a real shot in the dark. We hired a painter to paint the entire home top to bottom. I chose white for the ceilings and Designer white for the walls. Then I started to panic thinking it would be too stark. There is still the old original hardwood floors in pretty good shape, and lots of wood mouldings around doorways. When I saw it all painted - I was totally in love with the warm colors I chose. Yay!
|My beading side of the studio - lots of plastic I know...but hey, it does the job of holding so many beads|
The very best part was setting up a studio in one of the upstairs bedrooms that has good lighting throughout the day. I love the thought that this used to be my granddaughter's room.
Jenica is very artistic so it is nice to think about her when I create.
|Wire and components. Pictures my grand daughter painted to inspire me|
|Art side of the studio and all my supplies within reach|
|This is where I work - I love the big window that faces South. Believe me it won't stay this neat!|
|Teeny tiny walk in closet typical of older homes but is very charming. I decided to surround it with pictures I love of all my family. It adds color and inspires me.|
|The corner wall features art work by my grand kids and pictures. I have all my beading books within reach.|
