Beauty in the Ordinary

This is not about being brilliant, or extraordinary, it's not about wanting to be famous, or making headlines, or trying to impress...this about sharing a 'gift' each day with the lift the spirit of people when they read this blog, to show them the beauty in the ordinary.
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." Raold Dahl

Shell Shocked

J.  The last two days have been a nightmare.  If anyone out there is considering having cove-molding put in their home AFTER they have moved in, I have one word for you DON'T.  I know I'm finicky, but this is awful.  It is one of the messiest, dirtiest processes I have ever experienced.  Rudy and I refinished hardwood flooring once...something I would never repeat.  This rates right up there with that.
Having said all of that though...l love the way it looks!

 We are having a day off today while everything dries.  The painters begin tomorrow.  Hopefully, all the outside work will be done by Friday and then we begin on the interiors.

p.s.  Heard from V. this morning.  She travels back from Big Sur tomorrow. Says the course has been wonderful and exhausting and promises lots of interesting news next week.  I can't wait!


  1. But seriously would not believe the mess. I've been working 8 straight hours trying to clean up. Have you ever tried to clean between floorboards with a wooden skewer? Just think...we have ebony floors and black plantation shutters.
    Lili...anything you can do prior to moving in...go for it...this is so not funny.

  2. You will forget the awfulness of the process, and then be left with only all that gorgeousness...I know this b/c I lived through many similar nightmares!

  3. Zhush...I believe I will get over it...forget it? Now what would be the point in that? Then I just might do it again. Good lesson learned.


Go on...make my day...
