HAPPY FALL, Peeps!
The official FIRST DAY of AUTUMN isn't until September 23rd, but who's counting, right? I love the mild weather we've been having and so enjoy having cooler days. I'm also eager to share new thoughts with you...that is, if any of my old readers are still around and care to tag along.
So many changes this year and many more to come.
I still have my Booth at Serendipity Market (Edmond, OK) and loving it more than ever.
I still JUNK with a passion and suppose I always will.
And...when I FEEL like it, I add something new to my REBECCA VINTAGE - A Gathering Place website.
My home continues along a path of metamorphic change.
I'll be sharing more about it soon...especially our never-ending kitchen and downstairs renovation...
(Our Achilles Heel!)
The kitchen portion of it has been ongoing for way too long now and we are BEYOND sick of it. We do have our new fridge, sink, window, faucet, etc. All the plumbing, wiring is done (huge, huge job) and the walls are now textured and painted and doors trimmed out.
But, our cabinets came in and then were sent back because of damage, poor painting and glazing and missing parts.
(Silent Scream Goes Here!)
At this point we are moving towards Plan B on the cabinets. We found a style we LOVE, but they are so OUT of our BUDGET (like THOUSANDS OVER!!!) that my hubby is going to custom make them. Am I totally on board with this? Ummm...NO! He's already overworked (and underpaid!) and making custom cabinets will take months given his available time. But, convincing a do-it-yourselfer to NOT do-it-himself will take a miracle.
The one thing he opted NOT TO DO HIMESELF were the cabinets. The company we chose dropped the ball (big time) and the quality was simply terrible. They were expensive too...
(Totally bummed out!)
I'm sure my hubby's returning to school, his job loss in the middle of last year and the death of both of our fathers only eight weeks apart has played a huge part in the delay. Not to mention landing a new job and getting settled into a new career...
It's all been overwhelming.
My guy works a full time job and has done ALL the work alone. That means only a couple of hours a night and Saturdays to work on everything...and little rest. :(
So...the beat (and work) goes on!!! More pics to share with you soon!
For those of you who are wondering about my Miss K... Well, she will be TWELVE in November and is no longer a wee little girl. She'll pass me up in height this year (Boo!) and can no longer 'borrow' my cool shoes as her feet are bigger than mine. I suspect she'll one day reach at least 5'8...she's going to be a tall girl. She's grown up to be so precious~ Oh, and she LOVES her newly refashioned turquoise bedroom.
So, there you have it...where I am today. Busy as ever and loving life so much. I'm grateful for my health and so much more.
God is good.
All the time.
