Aux Champs D'Elysee


That's it for this year's Tour. I'm lucky to have this much done considering what else we've accomplished in the past three weeks not counting broken and sick critters. Hopefully I have enough yarn spun and enough fiber left over for another pair of thrummed mittens. If not I'll have to figure something out. 

I barely even got to see a minute of the time trials yesterday. The Mister was raring to go on the downstairs. We had a giant pile of kitchen remodeling material that had to be dealt with. Believe it or not we will be tearing up and replacing the tile in the foyer and the downstairs landing area this week. No rest for the weary it seems. 

We also shifted a lot of things around while we were down there. The Mister's dusty model collection traded places with my rickety old piano. We also hauled around his ginormous album collection. That was a job. 

My downstairs craft room got a deep cleaning. I've moved the baby sampler down there now so I can close it off from any kitty damage. I was worried about them getting into when it was in the living room. Now it's safe in a critter free zone. 

But the pièce de résistance is the fun I've had arranging the new plate racks that we just hung. When I am done I'll be able to access all my pretty coffee and tea ware instead of hiding it away in a cabinet. It feels weird not to be living in a sea of boxes anymore-but I think I'll get used to it. 


  1. The hard part will be deciding which of the beautiful cups to use each time. It looks lovely.

  2. I love your plate and cup etc collection. I’m glad to see your finally getting things cleared up. I couldn’t survive your chaos. Cheryl aka seajaes

  3. You have a fun collection of tea pots and cups!

  4. I feel you on the vinyl collection. I moved Dave's large collection from his Grandma's to our townhouse. I refused to do it again, so when we moved here, he enlisted my sister-in-law to help him. I don't think she's forgiven me yet, lol!

  5. PS - I love your new way to show off your tea collection - just beautiful

  6. Beauty is being revealed at last! How wonderful for you! So happy for you!
