Dave has been working really hard all week, after work and this weekend! He's patched the sheet rock, mudded, fill holes, prepped the floor, and coated the shower walls. It's got a waterproof paint on the durock (?) that makes it really waterproof, a suggestion by the plumber. Tub's great! Our vinyl got damaged in transit so it's another 5 days out. Going well, all in all. Shower walls will go up next I think, then texture the patches, then painting. I'm going to see if I can get Thurs./Friday off work for that. My daughter is getting married next weekend (sigh, not real happy) so it's bad timing. Oh well! Dave just mowed for the first time yesterday, it's getting green! Supposed to be 70 in 2 days! WOW. Weeds are everywhere, so we'll do what we can til the bathroom is done. Hopefully in the next 10 days, or less. Flooring guy will do that, then we'll do the cabinets.
Rained last night
Thrifting Score!Yesterday I hot a thrift store outside my usual area. Maybe because it was closer to the higher end neighborhoods I did better. I have to go back there again! I was looking for some bathroom decor, with a Scandinavian twist- think natural and whitewashed. I found these-
A Swedish heart basket, $3.00! I couldn't believe it!
I had looked on eBay for these, and they were much higher. The tag will go and I may whitewash it, or just give it a good cleaning, and new raffia. WOW!!! Love it.
Basket and a pot $3.00, plant will go in the pot, soaps in the basket
Basket, I threw away the blue fabric liner, for towels, etc.
Anya had to test drive it, with the liner
Frames, I'll paint the dark one
I also found 2 brand new items- a cardigan, and blouse. The whole bath was $24.00, a pretty good score!

I just discovered her and I love her folk-type art, and wooden items. I'd love to buy a "soul bird", but they're all pretty spendy. I absolutely love this green bird!
