It continues…this cottage makeover adventure has
reached the 9 month mark, and, yes, contractions are
feeling more painful…what exactly is being born?
A smart and modern kitchen (still in need of pretty touches).
A dining room/library with french doors.
A plethora of gallery white walls ready for their art.
(Mixed media piece with handmade succulents
and linen buttons by amazing artist friend Eileen!)
A newly configured master bath where one’s attention
is drawn to something more than an improper black throne.
A fresh, spa-like bath emerging…
after (clawfoot tub…almost plumbed and ready.)
A master bedroom on the cusp of completion.
(baseboards in! outlets working! decor evolving!)
We are hoping to achieve Patina Farm serenity in this bedroom.
(I make the prayer bead necklaces with powdery glass tribal
beads from Ghana and my religious amulet collection.)
My studio, a lower level bedroom & family room.
Then we will turn attention to decor
and sprucing up the outdoor areas, beginning
with the courtyard entry which is forlorn and neglected.

Do you still have a life?
I am busy with spiritual formation studies,
making time for silence, stillness, solitude,
creating art, and a secret new project in the desert.
The transforming work of Grace to my soul is not unlike
this renovation journey which began with demo
and dismantling to prepare for something brand new.
I am learning so much, and I love to learn!
