Here and There

 We got our ceiling repaired in the kitchen where the old fluorescent light was and you cannot even tell there was ever a hole there. Thanks to Frankie Diaz for his great job repairing the ceiling and giving it a coat of paint. He and his brother painted our ceiling as well as Marvin's man cave. Again, a wonderful experience as they arrived on time, did their work and were done by 5:30.  We chose Sherwin Williams Lattice for the man cave.

It is a cool gray that has a lot of blue in it and Marvin loves blue so we are very happy with the results. I first saw this color at a friend's house and I had to know where I could find it when it was time to choose a color of paint for my home.  It is hard to get a good picture of the man cave that really shows off this color. It is a big improvement on Builder Beige. With the new LEDs and the new paint, the upstairs is looking spiffy. 

This was made before we moved all the furniture back in place and hung up the art. I am going to change some of the locations of pictures etc. Marvin said he is ready for a change so some of his Retirement memorabilia is going into the attic storage room. It is where I hang all my out of season cross stitch and other things that we have grown tired of but we are not ready to make a decision on getting rid of it entirely. 

Meanwhile at Grimmwood...the colors they are a changing. Thanks to my sister, Kristi, for these shots.

We will be visiting there as you are reading this post. Last year we missed most of the color there....fall is busy here in Decatur and with picking up the kids at school we cannot go as often as we did in the summer.

Congrats on getting the kitchen ceiling done. I know you must love it.

Your husband's man-cave looks good, too. And you have a room in your attic for storage?!!!! You are so blessed!

Also, thanks for tuning me in to Cathy Habermann's freebie charts. I just printed up the Thankful one and look forward to whipping that one up in the near future. Today I began one of the Christmas flamingos. Just loving the colors of the flosses. They are so cheery.

Barbara, Cathy Habermann is such a generous designer! One of the reasons Hands In Designs is a favorite!
