A favorite flower and my tin ceiling.
I am sorry for being so absent this week.
I had a very busy week with my family.
I was lucky to have my brother and his family visit me this week.
I haven't seen him in almost three years.
It was so much fun to see my brother and his family. They have seven kids!
My kids were in heaven playing with all of their cousins.
Peonies are my favorite flower.
I couldn't pass up these peonies at Whole Foods.
My favorite kind of peony are the Sarah Bernhardt peonies.
These bottom two photos were shot looking through a mirror.
Okay now onto the tin ceiling.
One thing I have learned is not to post about a redo maybe until we have finished it.
This is taking us forever.
A lot of things have come up and has delayed the entire process.
First my husband put half inch plywood up.
Then he nailed the 100 year old tin to the plywood.
Here it is!
Still not finished though.
These tins were taken out of a church that was built in the 1800s.
The church was over in New Hampshire.
My sister found them at a salvage yard. (that is no longer in business)
The church had started on fire and a lot of the tins have smoke damage.
So they do need painted.
We used a Kilz primer before painting them.
This keeps the rust from bleeding through.
It still isn't painted yet, because it still needs caulked.
Once my husband puts caulk in the seams, I will paint them.
Just so you know I am capable of caulking, but it wouldn't be up to my husband's standards.
I want to thank all of you for taking the time to leave me such sweet comments.
You guys always bring a smile to my face.
I have been away from my computer for almost a week.
I feel bad when that happens, but I hope you all understand.
