Redoing Our Bathroom

Bath Redo

We finally were able to tackle our outdated bathroom this fall. While I was away in Florida, visiting my mother, my son and husband tore out our old bathtub and started on the tiling of the new walk-in shower. Adam is in the tiling business and does a wonderful job. It is fresh and pretty and even has a rainshower shower head. I painted the walls a light robin's egg blue to match the trim tile in the shower. I have collected some retro cups and plates from garage sales and put them on a white shelf. For now, we have done nothing with the sink and countertop but just for a tempoary fix, I painted the old formica black, along with an old dresser. I will do something better later, but it turned our quite good. It is cheerful and bright and I love the shower. Thanks Adam and Dad!

Our Farm

ave b
We heen blessed with a wonderful place to live. A few years ago, we were able to buy 24 acres with a pond and "little brick rancher" house. The house was not my dream home. It is just a typical brick ranch built in the 70's. But, the land sold us on the place with its acreage and big field down through the woods with a nice size pond. Since then we have done a lot with it and have made the house our own too. This blog is a kind of picture book of "Our Farm". "Our Farm" was the name of my Uncle Fred's blueberry farm in Michigan when I was growing up in the 50's. I have fond memories of it and so have dubbed our place with that name too.
