Inside and Out, Museville is still torn up.
The Inside Scoop:
I have been shopping for antique globes - big ones, small ones, and everything in between for the shop, but they don't seem to make it out of my house... I know.. I'm so bad - but they are so beautiful. I even have Artie shopping for them for me in NY! My top addiction at the moment.
Poor Tired Husband and I are going back and forth on the dental moulding I want - he thinks that it's too overwhelming, but I think it's fabulous. Here is the photo on my wish list bulletin board - it's my original inspiration - ancient sandstone dental moulding in Jordan! Gorgeous, isn't it?
For now, all the old, boring moulding has been pulled down and we're on "hold" while I convince PTH that he will love the moulding I have in mind ... la la la.
Still sorting through pots, urns, olive pots - what is staying inside and what is going outside - what's in the main house and what goes to the guest house - anything for greyfreth? - and I've changed my mind a zillion times... and will do many more times, I'm sure.
My dining room table top hasn't been seen in months because it has been covered in cross bottles from the greyfreth inventory overflow (albeit beautiful overflow) so the shed has now been designated as the new cross bottle overflow storage... for now - so I have THAT to do, too. Clear out, paint, re-shelf - and then stock. But, I see an empty tabletop in my future!

The Outside Scoop:
I am putting in my winter garden and only have the plans - but hey, you have to start somewhere, right? Kale, Cauliflower, broccoli, snap peas, garlic chives, leeks, mustard greens, edible flowers, lettuces and endive.... In theory it sounds fabulous - let's see if I have time to make it a reality this year.
The circular walkway that leads from the driveway (by the guest house and by the main house) to the Main House front door is being jack hammered out and replaced with pea gravel to meander through the newly planted (and soon to be planted) lovelies (pictures soon!) The olive trees finally made it out of the pots and into the ground - much to their utter delight.
And then there is the little retaining wall around the flower beds at the front of the house that need to be torn down and rebuilt to look like this one:
And there is still the outdoor dining room, the living room painting ... the list goes on and on! Who knew that a move would cause THIS much chaos for this LONG? It's okay. I'll organize the projects and start posting as we move through each one of them. They are fun ones and will make a big difference on how things look around here.
