winter days

Another cold day outside.. The snow is falling. We are expected to get another 10cm before the end of the day.
I took fergus and max for a walk, a fast walk that wind was soooo cold. They were happy to get in out of the cold.
Trying to walk daily as part of my new regiment.

I just added another coat of oil to the top of my new island . This coats the butcher block.
We added a pine beadboard to the back. Wasn't sure whether to paint or to just varathane.
Decided to paint the back bright white to match the front. I love my wide cutlery drawers and my pot drawers. We had extra wide cupboards at the other house so I wanted them here as well.

I mentioned in my last post , my sewing studio.
Here is a picture of what it looks like now. I will post an after once we decide where my studio stays.

Stay warm, until then........



  1. Love your new island...I wish I could convince dh to make one,
    Your sewing room??? Are you switching rooms? Dianntha

  2. I love the island. I cannot wait to see the sewing room after. Are u changing rooms or just tweaking. I recently changed to another room and I love it.

  3. I wouldn't mind some snow. I really like your kitchen island. Look at that fantastic storage! Ann :-)

  4. What a wonderful kitchen island and i love your wide drawers. There is so much snow falling everywhere. I hope you will stay alright.
    Happy New Year

  5. Looks like you're settling in nicely, Linda.

    Did you have your island custom made? Not only is it functional but it looks wonderful too.

    Your sewing room looks sunny and bright...perfect!

  6. I would love such an organized kitchen.

    I love forward to seeing your sewing room finished.
