Entry into the Secret Garden

First of all, HAPPY SUMMER!

Now that that's out of the way, let's talk about entry into the Secret Garden.

Oh, you think you can just sashay and walk in an ostentatious yet casual manner into our garden?  Oh my you are so so incorrect!

You see the garden entry way is now protected by this 100+ year old wooden, Victorian door with old and new locksets.  There is a wrought iron gate, which once protected the front window, beside it with very sharp spears at the top. An old wicker chair with a plant stands as sentry, alerting nature of your approach! Notice the key?  Oh yes, you NEED a key to enter this private oasis of calmness and beauty.  This just isn't any old key, this is the SECRET GARDEN KEY!!

But you know what?  I'm a nice guy so let me give you a bit of sneak preview whence you are ENTITLED to enter the garden. But only for a brief moment.

Bon Appetite!

Master Bedroom Suite: DONE

There is nothing better than uttering the word "DONE" after completing a major DIY project.  Of course, nothing is truly done when it comes to renovations.  What "DONE" means to me is achieving a point where you can sit back and view the work completed thus far and truly, truly enjoy it.   There are a dozen little things here and there that need to be finalized but that will happen over the next few days but the key thing is that the major work is DONE.

And, Gosh!, does it feel gooooooooooood.

Andrea pointed out that the whole room had a "Cape Cod" feeling to it and after thinking about it, she's right!
And Cape Cod makes sense since the shower is called "The White Whale" etc.  Overall the feeling is like being in a nice B&B in Cape Cod with the sound of waves crashing and nice bright light flowing throughout the room.  So I think we'll call the new bedroom 'New Bedford', which is the name of a former whaling city in Massachusetts where the real story of Moby Dick first launched. 

Anyway, I'm too tired to go into details right now so I'll just post some pics for you and write about the details later.

Thanks for visiting!
