the blackbird who is Daisy has come to visit. I could not believe it! I had asked her ages ago if she would come visit me at my new home.. and the very first day that I had donned my gardening gloves there she was..fleetingly, but she was there..
Dutch husband has stripped the bathroom out and we discovered asbestos which of course is not brilliant.. however in his line of work, he knows how & what to do with it to dispose of it properly...
all of this renovation work is taking me back to when we first bought Inglewood.. it is like time repeating itself.. the basket of essentials on the bench - tea, sugar, coffee and a jug.. some muffins and fruit.. very simple...the previous owner had left me a large jade plant.. and I wanted to make it my own.. so I repotted it into one of my large vintage cement pots.. and now it sits on the front porch under that gorgeous light..
later in the day and into the night, we worked hard, pulling blinds down and the carpet up..
[i pulled up the carpet and took the carpet tacks out one by one.. and dutch husband ripped up the wooden tack strips around the edge..]funny that we did the same thing 10yrs ago when we renovated Inglewood.so far, we have pulled the carpet up in my 'art studio' and the dining room, discovering the most glorious polished floor boards underneath..
