No, the rabbit came from Powell's...but it didn't really hold anything up on the old hollow door. It is much happier in solid wood!

Sometime last February, I took apart the bathroom on the main floor of our house. There is really no need to get into the nitty gritty of the floor removal process, because it was arduous. I was occasionally seized by... Continue reading

Rita, Thank you! I think of you each time I drive past The Woodsman! ;) It's amazing how much time has passed since that day we met for coffee, and how it seemed to just zip by. I am looking forward to catching up as well, and I truly would like to make some sort of thrift date work sooner than later!
Thanks dearest Mary. It means the world to have grace from Texas! ;)
Oh! Thank you Betty! I missed you too!
Susan, Thank you so much! I am happy to hear from familiar friends. :) When you say 'store' a crazy number of frames, do you mean keep out of the way, or display in some way? ;) I will think on it. I have a few myself that are just hanging around in the corners.

Ok, nine months is a significant amount of time. Truly, it shows a lapse in judgement, and care for you. I am sorry. Every day I would think about writing something, but the blog became like a needy friend who... Continue reading

Remember the last post...a MONTH ago about tearing out my bathroom floor? I didn't either, and I just had to go back and re-read it to even know where I left off. After I tore out the old floor, it... Continue reading

You adore torn up floors? ;) Me too. There is a Dallas Watson part of me that wants to just refinish the wood floor underneath... I thought of you when I was writing that tetanus line, actually. Ha!
Thanks Betty! I think squinting is a good idea. I also, am eager to have the room finished!

{future bathroom curtains...to be completed with some lovely brassy fringe} When this house was built, the tiny bathroom did not exist. There was some sort of back porch that led to a coal shaft or something where the sink is... Continue reading

Christmas was a doozy this year. I mean it. On one hand, we had a wonderful month of memory making, time with friends and family, and we celebrated Gods gift to humankind. On the other hand, all regular household activities... Continue reading

I'll have to set myself on fire. Here I am, over my head in responsibilities, duties, projects, unanswered phone calls, long overdue doctors appointments, people to feed, and I am trolling craigslist. For old frames. That aren't even free. I... Continue reading

You are welcome. I love you because of chairs like that...well, that is only one tiny reason.

You have no idea how many times we have watched that video, or sang that song. It's a little disturbing.
Susan, I totally contemplated putting off the repair for a while...just because it was so friendly. But, it seems like a wiser choice not to get attached to someone else's table. ;)

Last weekend Portland had a rainstorm. You know- the kind that local news name with ridiculous titles like 'Fall Squall 2013!', and then repeat 'Fall Squall 2013!' about two thousand times an hour for the duration of any inclement weather?... Continue reading

We have used old wooden rolling desk chairs as seating around our dining room table for about ten years now. Just writing that down makes me a dinosaur. One of these chairs belonged to my mom, one came from a... Continue reading
