There is always a long list of things that need doing and we take on a few projects every year.
Mr. HB has been quite busy around here in The Humble Bungalow this month. Besides priming and painting downstairs in the laundry room he's been working on the front porch.
Here is the new front door made by a talented local craftsman Percy, an exact replica of the former 100 year old one that was seriously delaminating. The hardware is new and in the Craftsman style from Classic Brass.
Mr. HB has been busy down in his workshop testing out stain colours to get just the look and shade that we like.
The original bevelled glass was saved and used in the new door.
Mr. HB painted the old house numbers black as they were corroded from the salty ocean breezes.
For the same reason we replaced the porch light...
had an arts and crafts style lamp suitable for the porch.
There will be a bus full of arts and crafts enthusiasts coming through our Humble Bungalow this month.
We have been busy cleaning, tidying and tending to the garden
putting our best face forward.
Do you remember the glove?
I read Faux Fuchsia's post this morning and was astonished to read that her "baby" is now 18 months old!
I remember clearly the day she announced that she was expecting him and it seems like yesterday.
Time marches on...
Chester napping and groggy after his surgical procedure yesterday.
Poor little fellow...
we had to entice him with treats so we could give him the pain medicine this morning.
When one adopts a rescue kitten part of the agreement is that you will have them spayed or neutered.
I am keeping him company and blogging from bed.
It's a tough job but someone has to do it!
Hope that you have a fabulous weekend!
