I‘m so glad to be home, where things are green and a barefoot lawn…I’ll feel better when the Tombstone house is finished but right now, I feel like I’ve been camping in a corset for a few days! Lily Absinthe Acre never looked so sweet as when we finally got home.. never again will we drive home on Memorial Day Monday, a twelve hour mistake. Happily, we come home with new project ideas and ready to get back to work.
Nine days from cut to finish this blush silk satin gown…will I be sewing on the plane? Ha! You know I will. 🙂
Sitting on the floor in the “Ooh-La-La” sewing parlor patiently hand stitching each of these stripey silk pleats. Where’s Spring? This old house is Brrrrrr cold!
My boots may have a tarnished past, but they’re ready for a new life playing matchy-matchy with the new gown! I’m leaving for No. 11, so this gown will be finished in the new “Ooh La La” parlor. 🙂
Quiet breakfast in the modern world, turning the clock back 120 years tomorrow, so I’m savoring this moment! I’m dreading all the work that I need to finish this week at No. 11, but old houses need love, too.
Yes, contrary to popular belief, we actually spend most of our time in a Mid-Century Modern house.
