My Week!

I scouted old Victorian porch parts in search of a post and other stair elements for the outside front

these are not that old but still cost $9 each so needing 50 of them is way too expensive

this is a house i drove by that had the whole porch already done

Fellini was so cute he pushed his behind in-between these couches when we were eating dinner

tiny flowers in bloom, about 2″ high

john assembled his new desk today, it moves up and down, OMG!!!!!

Fellini still sits in his basket under it undeterred

…and the whole day has been a basement clean out day and organizing day which Crystal has been doing most of!!! YEY!!!
