The Bedroom is almost complete
The sun is shining here in Ontario this morning. It is a glorious day. Crisp and cool, but sunny.
I'm back today to show you the bedroom. It is almost complete.
Here it is before ~
Like I said before, the colour was way too dark for me and I didn't really care for the olive green colour. But now, ahhhhh~
A peaceful retreat. This is an old farmhouse and the bedrooms are smaller than our other home, but, I am completely in love with this room and I love the colour (duck egg)
A little reading, knitting corner to while away the evening ~ sometimes, a place to unwind after a busy day.
The little jewelry corner ~
and I just love, love, love my new throw rug. My daughter bought this and gifted it to me ~ thank you Britt.
All summer I have been enjoying the open windows, but now that fall is upon us, I am going to make curtains for the bedroom. In the winter months, I find curtains give a room a cozy look. Don't you agree?
I think I am going with drop cloth curtains. Let me know what you think.
Here is the view from my front window ~
and here is the view from my west window
See? No neighbours, so curtains weren't really a must ~
While we have been renovating, I also finished this ~
Busy, busy, busy
I canned, tomatoes, tomato basil sauce ~ tomatoes, green peppers and onions, pepper jelly, wild grape jelly and beets. We also froze green beans, corn, kale and several herbs. All of this came from our garden. It's amazing isn't it?
I am ready for winter!
Can you understand why I have not been around....but now that most of the work is done, I am back ~
Did you can this year?
I would love to hear from you.
