New Fabric Line from Sarah Richardson

I just read that Sarah Richardson is planning a new fabric line through Kravet.  See her  diary, on September 18th, I can only imagine a vintage line in in muted colors or some of the newer brighter colors she's been using in a funky modern print.  Or better yet, an organic line inspired by nature to drool over.  I'm already renovating my living room in my head, I'm really tired of my old curtains.  Yes this is truly good news. 

Here's one of my favorite rooms from Design Inc., it's just so soft, sexy and luxe.  Enjoy.

Let it Rain

I'm so happy to write that we have roofing paper down and we don't have to sweat the rain.  We are taking a few weeks off and then we can start roofing (hopefully).  I'm so bummed about not having a metal roof though.  It was such a lovely weekend and I'm so thankful for the wonderful people that have given us their time to help with the building.  We are also at a road block for the siding.  We were told it wasn't going to be a problem getting the wood at cost and now apparently it's not happening.  Gosh I used to think that a persons word meant something.  Well maybe in the "olden" days.  Guess we have to go to plan B, or C.  Wood is so darn expensive right now maybe we can find an old barn that needs to be hauled away.

Looks pretty cool huh?

The dogs are excited too.

The Cabin in the Woods

The building of the cabin has been our main focus for about three months.  Every week on Friday afternoon we pack up some supplies and the dogs and drive north for about three hours.  It seems a bit nuts but it's worth every minute.  Being surrounded by nature is simply bliss.   Funny though, I'm writing this post because I can't sleep.  I can't sleep because how much money we've put into our little vacation / weekend home.  I realize that it was going to cost money but like any project it can take on a life of it's own.  One day at a time.  I tell myself this all the time.  Sometimes I need to just say it to myself over and over and over.  The goal is to get it water tight by winter and Greg thinks that we are almost there.  Good.
