Pretty tulips and a quick catch-up...

Tulips are one of my favorite flowers, so I was happy to find some a couple weeks ago. I put them in a vase in the middle of the great room in our new house and they delighted me every time I saw them. We could all use more of what makes us smile these days.
I realize I am woefully behind in my blogging and I’m sorry about that. I have been busy working on our new house ~ you can get a small glimpse here ~ and I do have lots and lots to show you. I am hoping to head off to a somewhat secluded beach for a week, huddled in a house with a couple close friends, just for the change of scenery and the smell of the ocean. The break will be nice, even if things can’t be as they were before.
So far I have finished the kitchen and the eating nook and most of the living room (I am still waiting on a couple small pieces of furniture). The guest room is nearly done, as is my studio/playroom/hideaway upstairs. The master bedroom is done, too, though we will likely buy some new furniture at some point. I have not even started on the dining room ~ that will be my project after I return from my break ~ though I do have my plans in place, aside from finding the perfect table, which has proved elusive. And the bathrooms are finished, too, though my flamingo powder room might still get a couple more touches. 
Other little things are done ~ I have planted the flower beds in the front of our house, and the mudroom area and laundry room are put together. Oh, and the entryway is nearly done ~ it’s pretty fab, too, if I do say so myself. 
I will do better on the blogging, I promise, and share lots of before & after photos in the coming weeks. I hope all of you are staying safe and healthy.
