Have you ever had an old tub refinished. We did this in one of our other homes and just had it done at Spindle Cottage. Man, what a difference it makes.
It is all taped off in the above pictures and that will need removing today. The odor the day of the painting is very strong!! Gave me a headache!! Had to have the bathroom window open and it was very very cold outside. We have been having teen temps in the mornings here in SC.
Thankfully I have the above gas fire and another fireplace with gas---makes all the difference!!

Above is a few of a front room---I thought it was kind of cool looking through the lace divider.
A sprinkling of berries above and below. We have a popcorn (Chinese Talo spelling?) tree--it has these white popcorn like things this time of the year. I have placed some in the wreath.
And lastly lots of nice warm fires in front of my new old coffee table. It was 18 degrees here in SC---which translates to cold in our old homes made for the warm weather!!
I have a question---I am trying to decide on wall colors for the condo that we may be moving to later this month. I am having a very hard deciding. First of all it has to go with my furniture, and secondly I need to feel warm and cozy, but I am kindof getting sick of yellows. I was thinking of airy blues and greens, but I don't know if I could live without the warmth of yellows. How do you all make up your minds???????? Should I paint large areas and see? It seems like a waste of time and money, but then perhaps not! If I should paint and not like it then that would be more time and money.

I know this may look a little weird , but I ordered this DVD from Amazon called
Fireplaces, Fishtank & Lava . It does 3 types of fires---one classical , one modern, and the one you see here on my TV is Campfire (you hear the fire burning and the peepers in the backgroud).
I find this so soothing and comforting!! It replays itself too. (It also has a lava thing and an aquarium---my cat loves the aquarium). But it was only 8 dollars and change with free shipping!!! Very nice---I even like it when I have a real fire going. The thing that is strange is I feel soothed and warmed just looking and listening to it!
PS. FOR THOSE OF YOU WITH A TV IN YOUR BEDROOM this would be really cozy!
