Bathroom Update And Flying Visitors

Here are the latest pictures of the bathroom remodel.
This is the new light fixture that is above the main bath vanity. I love this fixture, we actually put a second one in the half bath as well. We are doing all the hardware in brushed nickle. all the lights in our house now have this alabaster cover, I really like the look of it.
Here is the front of the new shower. We have a new rain head shower faucet. It is the best shower I have ever had. It is nice and soft but strong at the same time. As DD told her friend, it is the ultimate showering experience. And here is the far end of the shower. The color you see on the wall is the closest i could get to show you the actual color we picked. It is a really nice dark/medium blue. Very cheery and yet soothing at the same time.

While taking a break from all the work yesterday I snapped some pictures of our hummingbirds. These were taken from in the house looking out the front window. I would say that this is a sign that Spring is here, but at our house we have hummers year round. We are one of the only houses in our neighborhood that keeps a feeder up all year. This is most likely why we get so many of the little beauties. The feeder is just about 2 or 3 feet from our front window.

Bathroom Project

We are having the bathtub and shower combo replaced in our house. This is a much needed project, we are all excited about having a "new" bathroom when all the work is done.

Of course i forgot to take my before pics....i really need to start doing that. Anyways the first pic here is of the vanity area, if you look at the walls you can see the texture i put up.

The next picture is where the tub is usually We were so worried that the sub floor would have to be replaced. We had some serious leak issues and are so grateful that the bones of the house are fine, for the most part. We do have to replace one 2x6 in the floor, which just amazes me.

The last picture here is what you see when you first walk into the bathroom and look straight ahead. The toilet is usually As you can see we tore up the floor and will be replacing it with new vinyl. I can't wait for tomorrow, the crew will be back to install the tub unit and then we can finish our work. I will keep you posted on the progress.

Right now the color is a nice light sage green. We are ready for a change wait until you see the color we are painting.

Daffodil Drive

On Sunday we went on our annual trip out to Daffie Drive. Scott and i had a great time of course. The road out to the Long Tom Grange is 7 miles long and is lined with "wild" daffies. Once there, they have a bunch of booths set up and the artist sell their wares. There is always the Llamas and Alpacas. This year one of the vendors was having a clearance sell.....$5.00 a skein for hand dyed and hand spun alpaca yarn! Can you believe the price...oh my goodness, i bought 4
