I was looking in my fabric bags and saw something wonderful - blue stripes on a roller towel (vintage, with the most wonderful mends). New backdrop for pictures. Found a few more wooden spools, enough for a small sealer.
I love mended vintage fabric. Looks like the edge was over stitched a bit with the original string that closed the sack.
The Graphics Fairy's collection of vintage/very old images to the rescue again. I needed to dress up these vintage folding metal frames.
Those of you who reno know the drill. Thank goodness for a very kind plumber who talked us through the steps we needed to do before and after his share of the work. We also had the tiling and wiring jobs done by professionals. Our job was the gutting (what a lot of work!), hauling away the results and then replacing the walls and floors and painting.
Since then the peach walls were painted white and the oak with brass fittings frame lights seemed too prominent.
Got the short stepladder in from the porch, opened my tin of Simply White (CeCe), 2 coats of paint and a bit of 'touch ups', a set of 6 same sized bulbs and the job was done. Not the final solution for the lights. Quietens the room (for now). Not a great solution, should have used a primer first. Maybe try again later.
Only clear photo I could get was Auto/flash for this one photo.
This is number 8 in my goal to do one project a week, fourth project for February (I bundled a few small projects together this week).
And another snow picture (yes, rare in late February in our area).
An hour after I took this photo all the grass was again snowed under (DGS made 4 snowmen after school Monday).

Thanks for visiting.
Next post will be March 3rd at 7:00 a.m.
My hair grew in curly when it returned so I thought I would 'share' the change.
I am so grateful to have hair again, so hi from me. I have to take off my glasses (on top of my head in this photo) to focus the camera.
All Things With Purpose (June 10/15) - final party with Sarah - thank Sarah, I've loved joining in.
