Can you see (through all this white) the niche above the stairwell? An aside — no one has fallen down that pit yet but, the railings can't go in until after the wood floors do, so be careful! Anyway, back to the niche. When I was traveling in Italy, I noticed that all over the Country they honor Our Blessed Mother with her own little niche. She is lovingly placed in homes, plaza's and churches. I have a special fondness and devotion to Mary, and I thought in my cottage she should have her very own niche. There will be photos of my family and friends on the walls so I can remember the good times, and there will be my statue of Mary in her niche so I can see her every day and remember that she said YES to God.
My awesome, artistic and amazing electrician Rick, put a light in to shine on her. I know her presence will bless us. After all, she's the mother of Jesus! What better way to get closer to Him than through His Mother?
How do you like our doors? Pretty basic cottage don't ya think? The door knobs are on back order for four weeks. Of course they are!
The newly remodeled Master Bedroom has some space saving built ins and a window seat. Think I'll ever be sitting there reading a good book? I can't imagine it at this point but, won't somebody please tell me it's true?
I think you've seen about as much white as you can handle in one post. I know I have. So here is a photo I took in beautiful Kuna, Idaho. Bet you don't know where that is. Me either. Every time I go visit my sister there I get lost for 3 days. So. Cal beach chicks who are direction impaired, don't do long, flat, winding roads too well. But, can you see the rainbow? Right smack dab in the middle of the sky? I know that's a sign. A good sign that all will go well in the next couple of weeks as our Cottage By The Sea transforms back into our home sweet home.
P.S. Andy's coming back to help us move! Remember Andy?
Love you more than all the white primer and paint being sprayed in the cottage today!
