So remember that guy I was introduced to through OWOH and Abigail from Montana, back in the beginning of February?.....Well he, Ray, invited me to come live with him and his youngest son, Case, and I said yes!  So we are under mass clean up and painting, constructing, consolidating, and you know the rest....his home was not finished and has been untouched for ten years..needless to say, it needs a little lovin and a woman's touch...and I'm just the girl to do it!...keep you posted on all the changes as we go along....but here is one to pique your interest...this is the breakfast nook off the was yellow, now it is not..ha ha...this will become my studio/room. I've done green and blue stripes separated by antique metallic gold pin stripe, all done by hand, no tape! The white will be gone completely by the time I'm done aging the wood casing and ceiling beams.
The home is French country, with big black barn wood tongue and groove floor boards...I'll be adding my flavor of Tunisia and Morocco and old world Italian with a lot of aged gold wood...ha! that's me, what can I say...eclectic!  Oh, and the stone heart is in the center of the pathway leading up to the front door...this place is magic and I'm with the guy who made is so sweet.  He and his son have welcomed me with opened arms and it's just the best feeling ever to become part of this very loving family (his dad, Julius is beyond terrific, as are his daughter, Mekenzie and oldest son, Calhan, not to mention his sister Joy and Aunt Bea) happy am I right now!

WOW! June that looks amazing and it completely transformed that space already. I love the white windows and the ceiling..... BUT I can see when you eventually age it it will be perfect with the walls. Can't wait to see it in person.XO
