I love their rusty tails
Mugs were from my MIL she bought them through Avon I heart them
cannot resist these Ball jars,the small one is the latest addition
love pewter
I've added a couple little pics on the wall behind the birdies
door to the addition
Pippi is excited for Spring,she's birdwatching
Pippi is 10 months old now

Inspiration for the Bedroom

These are the images that made me long for a wooden ceiling,walls and floors! I will feel like I am at the cottage every day of the year waking up surrounded by wood!

In The Master Bedroom..Would You Prefer it Rough? or Smooth?

Progress is being made in our master get away,at this rate the kids will all be grown and moved away and we won't need a get away...but nevertheless,it has begun to take shape..the wood should be well "climatized" by now as it has been patiently waiting since last fall.
the end wall has been strapped and is all ready for the boards to go on..

this is the latest dilemma..do we want the planks smooth side facing out?? or rough side facing out??
the top two are the rough  the bottom is the smooth board
The ceiling is smooth so I thought we should go smooth (and we will be painting them so smooth made sense)..until I went to Crate & Barrel and now we are undecided. I think the texture could work!
hmmm WWSD?
Sooner or later this will be what our morning looks like
