We have heat!

No photo to share, but it is FREEZING COLD tonight in the garden state. Home from work, we went over in the dark to the house, pushed open the front door-- and it was warm inside. Incredible. They also cleaned up alot of the mess (nails, saw dust etc.) from hanging the sheet rock. I was getting worried that we might be behind schedule, but I confirmed with our builder today that we're still on target for a March first move in. (Huge sigh of relief.) Tomorrow we meet with the painter first thing and then we're escaping to VT for the weekend with friends... I'm bringing my design magazines and fan deck and house plans (i go no where without these!)-- but also my crocheting, a book, and my snowshoes. It will be nice to have a little break.

Okay, I can't Not post some photos. Today the window treatments and sconce shades arrived from Ballard. The sconce shades are for our powder room. I've posted this before, but our vanity/sink looks like this (only in a cream color, not black):
Here are the sconces from RH that will go on either side:

And these just in (literally!) the sconce shades from Ballard. They look really great in person. I had ordered a fabric sample and the brick red is so pretty. We'll have a kind of slate grey floor in there and BM "alpaca" on the walls. I think it will be a nice country-esque yet refined look.


  1. WOOOO HOOOOO It's been aroun -30here all week - too cold to even think. It will be so wonderful for you to be able to go "home" and be warm and actually be productive ! Happy Day

  2. Oh, how exciting! It's going to look amazing. I love those RH sconces. I will put your name in the domino draw. : )
