A Sigh of Relief

Mademoiselle is finally back in her room,
but that doesn't mean we're nearing completion.

I can't tell you how many days I've stood in this very spot
wondering:
HOW LONG...
IS THIS PROCESS GOING TO TAKE!!
I've been told many times
that it's the journey...
not the destination that's important,
but I think it's BOTH!!

Even Elmo has wondered
and spent many hours staring from behind the puppy gate
forbidden to be near the one he loves most...
me!

The room still looks bare,
but soon it won't.

But I DO have a confession to make...

I've committed the design faux pas of the century...
and placed my bed in front of the window seat...
What is a girl to do when one entire wall
is covered with a single ribbon window.
Commit faux pas!
(Architects know nothing ;-O)!

My darling linen table cloth, I mean bedspread.
I found it while in Prescott for a song
and had to bring it home.

Oh I love the bead board wainscoting!! So nice. That tablecloth is fabulous. Mademoiselle is so darn cute!!
My new double oven arrives tomorrow.
Tonight we have the "guys" over for the Sounders vs. Portland soccer game. Our sons and two of their friends. I didn't know they'd be here but there was enough food to feed 3 extra guys. I love it when the Lord increases the fish and loaves like that!!
Blessings on the rest of your week. Do you get Friday off??

Oh my Cori, Your room is looking so beautiful. I love it, I love it I love it. And as much as I love how you have photo shopped a vintage patina over your pictures I couldn't see every detail of your beautiful room when I zoomed in :( Were you hiding drywall dust lol? I certainly remember those days. lol I want to see this room clearly. It is so charming and I love what you have done. Please don't take offence to what I have written. Your talent with the computer is amazing. I wish I could make my blog as pretty as yours. Perhaps it is just my blurry bloggin eyes this a.m. or my computer. But nevertheless your room is amazing my friend!
Hugs
Becky

Okay off I go..hope your 4th weekend is grand!

SO far I am in love with what I see.. But do me a favor and make sure that when you show us the finished room the pictures show every detail..

Hey Becky,

Ha ha ha!! I did that intentionally ;O! All the dry wall dust is gone, but the room looks so bare and I haven't moved everything in so I didn't want the room to look BORING! Plus the mini-blinds...I would have preferred beautiful white shutters...alas, I have mini-blinds. Once I sew up my drapes and the accessories are in I'll clear up the pictures for you ;-).
By the way, nothing you could say could offend me sweet girlfriend.
