I have not been blogging so often lately
and one reason is because I
have a neck injury that knocked me for a loop!!
I had been busy
with some projects!
(and my neck has suffered great consequences
probably due to taking on projects )!!
When HubbyBear took a weekend trip away,
I thought that it would be a perfect opportunity
to paint that parlor!! So I rolled up my sleeves and took it on!!
I figured that it couldn't be that hard if I
just tackled one section at a time!!
Although the wall color wasn't too bad when we moved in,
it was rather darkish and also being shiny
it showed all it's imperfections!
Right away the brightness gave a cheery feel!!
Hmmm I wonder if HubbyBear
Before I started this painting project
we had acquired a beautiful
Hearthstone Soapstone Wood-burning Stove
that we found on Craig's list for a great price.
So I was glad to get the painting finished
before HubbyBear installed it!
~a perfect fit!~
Beautifully warm and cozy!
(right next to the faux fireplace) ;-)
It is so much brighter and cozier now!!
I moved my ~Great Walking Wheel~
over and now it is easy to use regularly!
We Love heating with wood
and our main source is in the basement
It heats wonderfully, but then the door is closed
and you go back upstairs!
There is just something
about sitting next to a stoked fire

The Sun room needed a new floor!
And it is always fun to change things around
and add some new antiques and nick~knacks!
Many of the antiques represent
Butter curd press
So when finished
it only made sense
to re~name the little sunny nook
Mama and Papa Mousiekin

For they have a new "Housiekin"
A yard sale "bargiekin"!!!
Hope you enjoyed!!
Warmth and Love
