 No, (not yet) although having the kitchen fixed up and painted pretty much feels  like one.  One day in his cleaning and organizing, Benjamin unearthed a small helium tank and balloons.  Naturally, he celebrated the kitchen.

Have you noticed that when you clean one thing, you noticed the next thing that needs doing, and the next, and the next?  When the house was all so tragic, we just went around with blinkers on so to speak.  Once we got the worst taken care of - the kitchen - we could see how desperately so much more needs to be done.  We won't get it all done soon, but more good things are happening.

My home team, Benjamin, David &; Teresa - I strongly suspect largely under Miss T's encouragement - has been working hard and working miracles.  They have transformed the dining room and front room. Here are David and Teresa working in the dining room.

The front room and dining room are Barely Jade with Marshmallow White trim.
I think these rooms are about ready to start to be put back together.  It will be so nice to have our table and chairs again!  And someplace to sit in the front room! but ugh!  the couch is so beat up and ugly. Anyone know how to upholster?


  1. Have you thought about getting a slip cover for the couch? The pictures are great, it looks wonderful! :)

  2. Mom, that's great! I can't wait to see it in person!
