Day 19 of #myhousethismonth / Light or dark. D e f i n i t e l y BOTH! I love light/bright walls, but I love a good dark feature wall! I think this is the greatest example of this... my downstairs WC! Hands up if you love the weekend?! 💁🏽♀️ 💁🏽♀️ 💁🏽♀️.
Day 18 : Light or Dark #myhousethismonth The kids had a tray of lovely colours of paint to decorate their pumpkins... (I thought they'd last longer than carving them) and they both smother them in black!!! ... and the tables, walls, curtains, clothes, skin, floor.... let's just say my house now smells beautifully of Zoflora and Lenor! So we were left with 2 big black pumpkins that looked like they threw up in the kitchen 🙈 Pompoms and buttons to the rescue then! They're not bad now actually are they! Ha ha!

Well folks, the radiator from last post has been fixed. But the house doesn’t like to be outdone so the main water line sprung a leak, before the meter, so technically it’s the town’s problemo. Called the Clinton DPW at 3:30 but they must’ve taken off early for the weekend... 😑😑😑 So I put a bucket underneath and I’ll deal with that ish on Monday. 🤷🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️ Now on to prettier things 😍😍😍 My husband has always had a piano around. The one prior to the one pictured was a 1963 Baldwin school piano that had never been serviced in the 10 years he owned it and was horrendously out of tune. Maybe it was the 3 moves it made in and around #boston 🤷🏻♀️ idk 🎹🎹🎹 We replaced that one with this Kholer & Campbell upright in the spring. He’s been taking lessons for well over a year now and his progress has been remarkable. 🤓🤓🤓 Watching him play, day after day, the same progressions and chords had been inspiring. 💗💗💗 I’m not one for practice. In the past, if I’m not “good” at something after a try or two I abandon it. It’s a habit I’ve been trying to rectify in my 30s. Persistence and practice and faith in yourself DO, in fact, pay off. And I’m getting better at learning to learn and be okay with imperfections. It’s work, but it’s good work and I’m grateful to take it on. 💪💪💪 The gallery wall is a modge-podge of art and pictures. Upper left is a print from: @giovannaviola_art HiLo Foods was in #jamaicaplain before the #wholefoods moved in. I can’t recall the artist 😳 The vampire cat print is from: @nikadermus The Lost poster was bought from: @frogandtoadstore The pug needlepoint was bought from: @trilogyestatesales The piano was purchased at Bushnel Pianos in Marlborough, Ma. 🖼🖼🖼 Happy freaking Friday friends. Hope it’s a terrific weekend! . . . #circa1903home#gallerywall#hilofood#bostonma#jamaicaplainma#4815162342
I miss my midcentury jungle-vibe living room 🌿 I’ve had to congregate all of my plants into the dining room as it’s out of Edgar’s (chief plant-chewer) way 😂 I’ve pulled a bloomin’ blinder & managed to snap up a beautiful sofa & ginormous cactus today. For free. I’ll post photos of them on my stories tomorrow when the lighting is better! But I’m well chuffed - the sofa is the style I was intending to buy for the living room so it was just a case of getting it reupholstered. However when I picked it up the material is beautiful already, a lovely colour and in good condition! As for the cactus, it’s about the same height as Tom - and he’s not a short guy 🌵
