My week


Sneak peek of the move-the-laundry-center project

This has been a short-but-crammed-full-of-work week.  I finished up a long and time consuming project at my mom's house last week (no time to take great photos but a post will follow on that soon) and then headed out of town to visit my daughter - the one with the baby who is almost two!




My younger daughter was also visiting and made us a delicious nectarine crisp from the tree in the backyard ... it was really hard to leave all the fun.

I drove back into town Tuesday morning and immediately started checking up on a few ongoing projects ...


This job has gone out to the upholsterer ...



I stopped by to mark where I wanted the pattern to sit exactly on the dining room chairs and went over a few sofa details. Then I headed over to check on another project ...


The room was wall to wall carpet and it needed to be replaced. We are replacing with a beautiful wood floor and some really fun area rugs ...



LOVE!  Then I headed over to start another project ...


Do you remember this house? We moved the dining room into the old living room space and turned the dining room into a comfortable have-your-morning-cup-of-coffee-read-the-paper-sit-with-the-husband-and-catch-up-on-life room. I had not seen the new area rug yet ... super excited to see how it all came together and even more excited to hear how much the client's love and use this new room.


We are doing some new fun things around the house (some bedroom updates) and adding some more art to the walls. So it was off to the framer and then to a few design stores ...


I don't know how I did it, but I was able to get everything done I needed to and still have time to have a leisurely lunch with a friend:


Today is a full scheduled day - putting out some "fires", picking up more frames, stuffing pillows, measuring for area rugs, selecting fabrics ... 


New pillow covers waiting to be stuffed

More on my list than I think I can get done ... and sooo looking forward to the weekend!


And so excited that I woke up to my first CSA box on my doorstep this morning!



Happy Friday everyone!!!
