Just in the nik of time!

Monday and Tuesday were spent washing, painting, and more painting, the inside walls of the studio.The weather was perfect! But since then ,the rain and wind hasnt stopped, so I decided to start bringing in some things to hang, starting with a new light I created...cant reveal all yet!

Finally my sweet peas are growing, Toby still has a nibble occasionally as he walks past!

It is all coming together nicely, but still so much to do. Im looking forward to Fathers Day this Sunday, to see my dad, and just relax for a day, well after helping make lunch, and pampering dad! I'll post next week, hopefully with a completed studio, ready for business!

Happy Fathers Day to all the Dads out there!


  1. Hi Sue,

    I thought I was the only one who had Sweet Peas just now blooming. They are usually done by July. Boy the seasons are really changing.

    Thank you for your sweet comments on my Country Victorian feature. It means so much to me you can't imagine.

  2. I didn't get so see them because I had already left home! Bummer. I did see they were going to be on there. Another fav of mine is 'Hot N Cold' by Katy Perry on youtube. Just another catchy song!

  3. I had no idea the whole world didn't celebrate Father's Day in June. June? I think we do it in June. Mother's Day is in May, Dad's in June.

    The pictures show a promise of a very pretty room!

  4. I am so excited for you!
    Your sweet peas will look stunning hanging down from the container onto your porch.

    Now you've got me so excited to see the final room far away friend.

    I'll be thinking of you.
