My new office is slowly coming along. I've spent a lot of time filling up the cupboards with all the "stuff" that had been "stuffed" in all kinds of places. It's so wonderful to get organized!!!
This room will be cottage style and needs a lot of finishing touches yet. The color was supposed to be a light green, with a touch of blue, but it looks more blue than green. Oh well, it's still pretty & I love the color. I needed it to be light so that the rooms adjoining the porch wouldn't become too dark, and it has worked!
Hopefully I'll have it completed within the next week or so.

On top of everything else going on, Praise God, I'm getting a new office!
We never used our front porch because the it's so close to our busy road that you could hardly hold a conversation sitting there. With desperate need of space in our small home, it's now enclosed with lots of insulation and windows, not so noisy any more, and a perfect new place for my office! Long and narrow, but still perfect for me!
I won't have to squeeze into a corner of another room any longer! It's a work in progress ..... but here's how it's coming along.

But how about drying those pretty roses? Thoroughly spray them with hair spray, then hang them upside down until they have dried completely. Takes at least one week.

On a more cheerful note, I've been reorganizing my shop here on the farm. Got some new sewing machines (used, but new to me) and had to adjust my set-up so that I could fit in and not take up any more floor space from the retail part of the building. Here's just one display in the shop. Will spare you the "machine" photos. Nothing pretty, but very practical and for a great price, too!
