Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

New Wall in the Hall

First of all I wanted to let you know, because so many people have asked, that I will be posting a tutorial on the cupcake pincushion as soon as I can get my act together. I will also get the recipe for the fudge and mints and post them as well. I didn't even bring the recipe home with me because I was afraid I would make a batch. And then eat most of it. But I will sacrifice myself for all of you. I suppose it is my blogging duty.
This is what we've been doing this week. Our son in law has had a little off time from his job and so we put him to work beautifying our hall. It's gonna be so great.

Your hall looks beautiful!
You are so lucky to have a son-in-law with great woodworking skills.

Ooh, that looks so good! I'm jealous--I want something like that, but we have so many things we want to do, I'm afraid to bring it up. Especially, too, when every other day I want to move out of this little house!
Sheesh, I'm slow, I should have asked for the recipes too--don't you know you're supposed to make a batch and send them this way? With so many helpers, I hardly get enough anyway (unless I hide it). See, you need a two-year-old living with you. I have to give S-man bites of everything.

Your hall looks wonderful. Where did you get your wainscoating from? I want to do it through my whole house.

Can I copy your photo? I want to put that in my "to do" file. I have the old fashioned picture frame molding, but this is more "me". I love the clean crisp lines, it is perfect.

What beautiful trim work in your hall. I love your house! I had to stop by to meet you because I saw a comment you made over at Sue's that said "Home Depot and lunch at Taco Time". I used to live in Utah and I think that's the only place they had Taco Time's....dang I miss me a crips chicken burrito with a passion. I swear that'st the best fast food on the planet! Thanks for the little reminder of home. hmmm I wonder if they'd ship me lunch across the country??
