a little progress

new white walls

This weekend was more productive than usual (when I say that I mean we got more than one thing crossed off the to-do list). Grandpa and Mimi took the boys Friday night so that we could paint our bedroom and do a little spring cleaning. Henry, at five, is pretty good at sorting through toys, tossing the irreparable ones and giving some to charity. Freddy, almost three, is less enthusiastic. He tends to keep broken toy parts and hoard them like little treasures. I find collections of things in various receptacles around his room. So, it was much simpler to sort without his help.

Above is a peek at a freshly painted white bedroom wall (primer + two coats over the old sage green paint). Not too exciting by itself, but it really brightens it up (we are surrounded by large trees, so our house seems kind of dark a lot of the time). I’ll post more photos of the room once it’s all put back together again. For now, I’ll leave you with Mrs. Hen and her chicks.

Also had a bit of time last night to make these dainty little britches for my shop:

    Aww, I remember hoarding all my toys too! I think I still have a tub of broken doll parts somewhere. 🙂

    I love the fabric of the britches, very fresh and spring-y.

    I do the same thing 🙂 I could see at as a waistband for a vintage looking dress….
