But first, these photos were taken about 10 days ago, and the roses are STILL BLOOMING!
Then we bought a new step for the kitchen (main) entrance:
This weekend, we did some major moving of things around the house. We are down to about 20 boxes and still going through things to decide what to keep and what to sell at a yard sale. We had an enormous oak table in the "formal" dining area. It was quickly becoming a dump spot and we couldn't see out the wonderful window. So we moved the table to another place:
Then I had a couple of stained glass windows that we carefully carried down here on the move, and so the morning glory one went up into the window:
I do plan on replacing the curtains at some point but they look much better without the sheers, I think.
I put up some artwork in the corners, starting with a couple that someone had done of my corgis:
Then we got really inspired and spent the rest of the day hanging pictures in the guest room and the front room and our bedroom. It looks really nice, now!
Moving is a year long project, I can tell you that, with working and training and other things, sometimes there is just no energy to do this in the evening. So I am glad that we got these things done.
I am going to hang the iris stained glass to the left of these pictures, where the entry way is. There really isn't another good place to put it except in the second guest room which is actually a library. And since the sun shines in so brightly and hot in the summer, I'd really rather have the blinds in there. So this makes a good logical choice. I went and got the better hooks for both the stained glasses and we will get them up maybe tomorrow.
