The Real Thing

Plate by Lisa Oceandreamer

My first morning here alone and it's starting to feel a little like ours. I slept in and got my coffee and sat on the porch. My friend was there to greet me again this morning. I say friend because he is on the other side of the screen, of course. A local waterman came floating by fly fishing, probably for his lunch. Can't get any fresher than that. He must have found a hot spot as he stopped for a bit over at the fork up from us. I'm dying to get out there and explore. For the time being, I am enjoying, so much, just watching from the land.
It's almost as peaceful from here. The kid was the only one able to catch a fish so far from the docks. We have these mullets that jump right out of the water, some quite large. It's fun to hear them at night when you are sitting and all is quiet except for the splashes they make. Of course, I've tried to capture that on my camera, but to no avail. One day, I'm bound to.

I finished mom's room yesterday but need to go back over a few places. I hate that. Once I'm cleaned up, I despise getting everything back out. Grumpy me. The shutter people are coming back today to remeasure for the plantation shutters. Mom's headboards come in today also.

I need to find a little table for her and some douvet covers and her room is boom, done. We have a Westpoint Stevens outlet here, so guess where I will be later? I found some great dust ruffles there for a bargain.



Well, guess it's about that time to get out and about. Always one more item to get. Here's your day's fill of wisteria.

I can't get over how much you've gotten done already...it all looks so very comfy and welcoming!! I would want to spend ALL my time looking out at that scenery:-) You will certainly enjoy the quieter lifestyle there...I remember how much I use to enjoy visiting my mom when she had a house at the lake like that, so very peaceful!! Your wisteria is just gorgeous!! xoxo

You have made this house a real home, I love looking at what you do. Question...what color paint did you use in the bedroom and bath. It is really pretty.
I should put some pictures of my place on the blog. It was built in 1906 and we have treated it with loving care.
You cetainly have an eye for putting things together...Mary

What a pleasure reading this and seeing the evolution of your house into a home. And hey! Is that one of Lisa's plates I see in the top picture?

It's really coming together. I'm sure it has been alot of work-but worth it.

If I had a place like that, I would NEVER want to leave. I love the yellow -- so very sunny. Nice.
