It's time for the little things!

 The bedroom is essentially finished. I added artwork and a few personal items and I am so pleased with the results. The curtains here, as in the lower level, are the ones that came with the house. I used dowel curtain rods here, though, as there weren't enough intact panels to cross them as they originally did.
 I looked at countless linoleum ads from the 20s and 30s before deciding on the art for the bedroom.
 Louise's hair brush used to be a My Little Pony brush. I cut off the bristles, gave it a coat of gold paint, and added Velcro bristles.
The dining area got a framed print and some silverware. I want to add more to the hutch shelves as well as the kitchen shelves. The sitting area needs a fireplace. That will mostly finish the interior. I need to paint the exterior trim dark green and shingle the roof. I don't think I will do much more than that as I want to keep the simple charm from the original builder.

I think I like the slower pace of my projects now. When I was younger I would power through a project with lots of late nights. The slower pace leads to fewer changes of plan. Whether fast or slow, mini projects are the best therapy I know!

Wishing you all a wonderful week!

The house is looking so homey now with all the little details! The curtains really do look nice and add the finishing touch!
A fireplace sounds like fun, and I am so envious of all those canned sweet potatoes! It's a lot of hard work, but such a nice thing for your family to enjoy!
