RAOK, ROOM PROGRESS


I was the surprised and delighted recipient of a gift of Random Act of Kindness which arrived in yesterday's mail. Pat Winter gifted me with this lovely package of her hand-dyed ribbons. I love her ribbons and had actually asked to be on her list the next time she dyed them, and she sent me this wonderful package yesterday, smelling wonderfully of lavender. Thank you so much Pat, you brightened my day with your generous gift!







The room redo is coming along pretty quickly now. John got the second cabinet up, installed lights underneath the cabinets, got one of the base cabinets done, and is working on the other one now. In addition to having 3 drawers the bottom one has a pull out section too, like a cutting board.














These are a detail of the whale handles I ordered.
















I am finally getting some of my stuff back on the walls, a watercolor I painted, out in the hall you can see another watercolor. I also got my shell
box back up on the wall.










And my little trinket shelf back up. Today John and I are going over to Home Depot to purchase the counter top.

I have a couple of other packages I got yesterday to share, one the Birds and Bees RR from Debbie Smith, but I need to get back to work now, so will do that tomorrow.

John does lovely cabinet work Karrin. The room is really coming along nicely!

Karrin, I figured a new studio needed new silk ribbons!!! Actually, I knew you would fight me on giving ribbons to you so this way you can't! :-)
The room is taking shape. I am excited for you.
Smiles,
Pat

Your room is coming along so well. And I love the ribbons from Pat! Such great colors. I force myself to actually use mine.

Karrin, you'll have a wonderful new studio. Please use those gorgeous ribbons and share your eye-candies with us.
Love,
