Where have I been? Well, several weeks ago, my husband of 46 years complained of a stomachache, to make long story short, within a few hours he was in Septic Shock and wound up in the hospital for a week with not one but a combination of two bacterial infections that had entered his blood stream. The doctors haven't been able to find a source for the infections, but he is finally better, but it was a huge scare for both of us.
Once he was on the mend I began helping my daughter get her house ready for sale. We have spent countless hours painting and touching up wood work and walls, gardening, demossing,( the moss grows so green in the Northwest) and packing up tons of stuff to get rid of any clutter, which are now housed in my garage She lives in a very beautiful old neighborhood of Portland Oregon, called Eastmoreland with charming old homes. If you are looking for a beauty of an older home check out the RMLS http://www.rmls.com/RC2/UI/Home.asp and in the MLS area type in 11174012
I always have trouble getting multiple pictures to post in a line on my blog, so I finally said this is taking too much time, just go with it! One of my painting friends suggested I call the assemblage "The Doll House" at first I said ...no.. not what I intended, but the more I thought about it I guess that really is a good name for it.
