I think because Spring is coming DH is starting to get ready to tackle some of the many, many projects involved with maintaining this old house. We spent Saturday going to architectural salvage yards. We were hoping to find a replacement for our front door. We are going to have to completely tear this out and rebuild the framing and the windows. I think you can see the damage at the bottom of the door. It's sitting on a granite threshold and isn't sealed. The door is not original and is actually put together from 2 smaller doors. Whoever did it didn't do it in a stable way. Where the seam is it bows in. We didn't find a door that we liked and
was in good enough shape to use.
DH would have had to rebuild any of them so we decided he will just rebuild this one. We also looked for thumb latches, registers and soapstone sinks. We didn't end up with anything except for a new understanding of just how much this is going to cost. :o/ I am lucky that DH is very handy and can do a lot of the work himself. Now if he can only find the time.
My Valentines Day present from Gail Wilson Designs
arrived this weekend. I have been wanting these ornaments for a couple of years. I am going to ask for the rest of them at upcoming holidays. My little doll is 3 1/4 inches tall and the detail is amazing. I just love miniature things.
