Valentine's Day

Think I could have sold this heart photo chip on EBay?
May you have a lovely Valentine's Day.

Bathroom Remodel

My hope is that by the end of the month the bathroom remodel will be completed. With Mick traveling for work it's hard to get projects done. The below photo is the most accurate photo I've taken showing the wall color. I have a new way of taking inside photos!!!!
I decided to go with purple for the shower curtain. I wanted to choose a color that we did not already have in the house. Oh, and I LOVE paisley. Other than gray and white it will be the only color in the bathroom.
I narrowed my search to three Kohler sinks and thanks to Amie she diagrammed what each would look like "space wise." Of course the second sink was my first choice and once I saw what it would have looked like I eliminated it right away. 
As much as I liked he look of the first I went with the third sink, I wanted more counter space. They've been ordered and scheduled to arrive today. Thanks so much Amie for offering to do this. You saved me from getting sinks I would not have been happy with.
The trials and tribulations of do-it-yourself home remodels, something I so enjoy. Except the paying part.

Interior Doors

Painting interior doors colors other than white is all the trend. I was ahead of the times when I had Mick paint the door to the porch black. I can remember like it was yesterday, it was six years ago, when I was trying to image what the door would look like painted black.
Now looking at the front door I'm considering painting that.
I' thinking green? Maybe pink?

Redwood Forest ??

During our hike at Lampson Falls we came across the root system of a fallen tree. I'd never seen anything like this before. It's the size I imagine of a tree in a Redwood forest.
 The sections where the soil washed away made it all the more interesting.
 Both photos were taken by Bonnie. The top photo with her camera and the bottom photo with mine.

Tip Thursday

After my spoon in the bottle tip that turned out to be false, I was going to give up Tip Thursday. After a week of feeling terrible for giving out bad advice I got over it.
Prior to burning a candle trim the wick. The candle will burn slower and last much longer.
Trim the wick prior to each time you light a candle. It works. I promise!!
