I'm Back!

How do I begin to tell you all why my blog has been neglected for so long? Let's see....first, I had hurt my back pretty darn good which had put me out of commission for quite some time. It was all I could do to stand and do my hair in the morning. I even resorted to buying a wig to alleviate that problem. I hate wigs, hot and itchy! I was even having a hard time sitting. I still to this day do not know how it happened. I happened to have a slipped vertibrae, degenerative joint disease, and arthritis. Doc said it was all the rough housing over the years that did it. Second...I have been busy trying to get my new business up and running with photography. So much work involved in that process and is still ongoing! You can check it out here if your curious at . Third....The old mill that we have been working on is coming along fabulously! We hope to be in there by this summer! Whoohooo!. Sorry, I get excited about this. I will be posting many photos from this journey. You would not believe the changes that have been taken place already! I just can't wait to finally be able to decorate in there! Even though I have a bad back, I can and will continue to decorate.
Just to recap, here is the beginning of our major project/renovations on the old mill.
In these photos, We had just finished the railing that goes around the atrium which overlooks the downstairs livingroom area. We had kept some pretty cool, large mill gears. Another photo is looking up from the main floor looking at the railing. Never mind those corbels hanging up on each side of the soon to be bathroom. I told my hubby that I did not like them and they are now down. He tried. I will try to post another update when I can. We just finished all the floors in the mill with beautiful hardwood flooring. What a transformation it made. Can't wait to show you, but it is pretty dusty right now. I want to take photos of clean flooring. My hubby and I think that our store has sold. Just waiting to hear soon if they were able to get the financing. If so, wow we will be busy with dealing with store inventory, moving everything out, yada, yada, yada. So please be patient with me during our journey. I promise that there will be plenty of decorating photos to show you hopefully soon!

I just found your blog and saw the video of your former "farm home". Now for some reason I can't get the video anymore.. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing your beautiful vintage/antique d├ęcor. I had hoped to be able to go back from time to time to look again. Now it says there's an error somewhere. My son said it's not on my side.
I look forward to seeing the renovation of the old mill. You have an amazing and I'm sure enjoyable venture going on with the mill. Have seen old barns restored to be enjoyed as homes. I love seeing that kind of restoration.
Hope to see more of your posts in the future. Would LOVE to see the video of your past home.
