hooked on..floating away

It's Friday again...{is it just me or are the weeks flying by lately?}

OK...don't jump on me...I am definitely not complaining it's Friday.
it's time for Julia's {Hooked on Houses} Friday blog party

I'm such a water lover, I could live near the water. (Oh..wait I do) Well not close enough.

today I feel like floating away...listening to the river ripple below me...sitting in a comfy chair on my deck...reading a good book...sipping a glass of wine..

problem you say..."can't sit on your deck and float away at the same time"

Ah Ha! not a problem any more...which is why today I'm hooked on.....

Yes, it is a floating home, or to be correct, a Floating Pod.

Compact modular green homes built for energy efficiency, indoor air quality and sustainability.
{And It's on the Water} I could absolutely be sustained here!

The interiors look just as amazing. Life simplified beautifully!

If your interested in joining me go here for more info Green Pod

have a wonderful friday everyone!

updated peeks

I thought I'd share a few updated peeks of the sun room remodel. I'm taking the weekend off from projects and getting some grandson love.

it's almost done...

i cheated a little on the painting..already loved the color, the walls were in good shape except for touch ups and the new trim & baseboards.. luckily the former owners left the paint for this room.

heavy cleaning was next
most furniture is moved back in. winter drapes need to be rehung (maybe), I just may leave them off from now

new maple step needs to be coated with a finish

add a few personal touches & then I can scratch this room off the list of ranch remakes to do!!

have a lovely sunday

monday & tuesday discoveries..

Yes, I know it happened again this week...Mondays discoveries became Tuesdays. But at least I've added more than one. Actually it's part of a collection.

For many of you that are new to my blog, I have been unpacking boxes from my previous brick and mortar shop, Solstice home & garden. Sometimes I'm as surprised as you at what I find hidden away! I have also been scouting in and around Cape Cod for hidden treasures to share in my etsy shop. Monday is the day I try to post a new discovery for my blog readers before it gets posted in my shop.

This week they are part of a Vintage Farmhouse Collection

long handled french lopers, (wonderful old paint)
vintage chippy framed screen (perfect for a project)
antique green shutter ( has original hardware)
wonderful old tool chest (original hardware and awesome patina)

all soon to be posted in the shop..

Have a great night
