This won’t be a long blog entry but it is one that shows progress. We finally hung a picture!! Yes we did and it looks superb in the frame and on that particular wall. Our lovely friend Claire gave us a painting from a local artist of a prairie landscape. On a windy summer day the view out our door is similiar to the picture – the colors and the rolling hills. It sat on the wainscotting and each year at Christmas I would remove it to put up decorations and think “hm – I should get that framed”. Well off to Michael’s it went and back again in about 2 weeks. Fortunately it is not a plaster wall so hanging it wasn’t a huge ordeal with predrilling and having to be ultra careful. It will get rehung lower down the wall a bit “someday” when I get that piece of picture rail stripped, sanded, stained, varnished and installed.
BUT for the meantime it looks great.
We also hung up a bulletin board in the “parlor” office. I found an old frame at an antique store (I do miss La Petite Mason now that it closed) and inserted a cork/white board behind it after I painted the frame. Ron then hung it carefully on the wall. It’s interesting to note that it is level according to the ceiling and the level but the bottom looks crooked! But I’m just happy to have a spot to hang a few office things so I’m not noticing that anymore.
Nothing on the whiteboard portion as I don’t have a marker yet but it should say “book Lisbon hotel for April “
Well, I’m off to enjoy the sunshine and go for a snowshoe and then back to work on those screen/storm doors.
PS Please leave a comment as to whether or not the photos are loading ok – I’ve changed the way that I am doing them since we got the new computer and I’m just wondering if they are loading faster, slower or the same for you.
