Hello darling readers, I have been absent but very busy with house things.  This weekend, although I have to work the entire time,  my friend Bill is installing our hand scraped, wide plank, coventry oak hardwood floors.  Very exciting because we have had carpet for 7 years and it was there when we moved in.  Anyway, I love the neutral color of what we chose and the wider plank has always been a dream of mine to have.  This is a photo of my husband's  hand with his new handy dandy, rustic, church thrift store beer cozy that I splurged for (.25cents) yesterday.  I got some great stuff and will post it next week along with the floors.  JUST A SIDE NOTE:  his nails are usually immaculate...this is after he pulled up the carpet.  just sayin.

Rob and his three best friends: Miller beer, Caroline and Georgia.  He is rewarding himself with a cold beer after he finished pulling up all of the carpet, padding, and staples from  the entire upstairs of our house with the exception of the bedrooms/bathrooms.  What a hard working man, my Rob. 
This is after he pulled up the carpet in the dining entire house is packed up in the garage. I can't wait to re-decorate when the floors are finished.

I still have to pack that one last cabinet full of pottery tonight but everything has been put away since March when the new kitchen was installed.  I need everything to come together so I can start with a clean palette.  yay!  So have a great weekend!  I am so grateful and happy!!  What is making you grateful or happy?  dawn xo
