the fun has begun ...
I don't have any new pictures to post YET because so many things are finally happening this week in the house. I thought I would wait until this weekend to share the new updates and post pretty ocean view shots instead! I took some photos yesterday of the views as it was such a glorious day. The center photo is the view through one of our new windows. We trimmed a tree and it opened up the entire view! Yesterday was technically "hot" for Ventura but I thought the temperature was perfect.
So what is happening this week? We are having a new front door installed, molding and trim added to all of the windows and doors, marble tile put in both bathrooms, new fireplace installed and new hardwood floors. To be honest I was freaked out last week that we were behind schedule (while waiting for inspections) and very cranky (ask my contractor, he'll vouch for that!). But now that there are so many people doing so many things we are back on schedule. The house will be done end of this month!
The only thing I am worried about is whether or not the new artwork and pillows will be done. Of course, we know who needs to get those things done. Ugh ...

Leslie, you should write a book on easy way to make your own pillows!! Now all I need is my sewing machine back! So excited about your "dreamy beach house" all coming together. I am in Texas this week, will be home for 5 days then off to Cape Cod with 3 best friends for 10 days. So my 30 days of painting will be in Oct, I will have many new reference photos to paint from.

I am a mom, wife, artist and someone always looking for a "new project". According to my husband, this might be my biggest "project" yet.
