The New "Oven"!

Anyone who has been following our progress knows that we had to remove the built in "Wedgewood" oven that was 50+ years old and won't be able to afford a replacement for quite sometime.      Many of you asked how we live without an oven.

While I was hiding electrical cords with white conduit strips, Michael fired up the (never been used before) little grill that I had stored for 8 years.  Deni had dropped it off last weekend and frankly it intimidated me.  I love grilling; but have only done so "old-school" fashion and this was some stainless steel thing that used propane.

This was dinner tonight!


After the first bite, it was clear that we can survive just fine without an oven at least through Spring and Summer!  Marinated Tri-Tip Steak, Hamburgers, Hot Dogs, potato salad and organically grown tomatoes with oil and vinegar.

Here is our new little oven.  I half-way expected to hear, "Danger Wil Robinson".  But, after eating dinner, I decided that it well worth the risk!

Thank you for sharing your home transformation. It is beautiful! My favorites are the living room floor and the countertop on the bar. Also, believe it or not, your sinks and tub color is neat, in my opinion.

Hi Susan - Thanks so much for popping in and for your sweet words. I am getting used to the sink and tub color. I guess you would have had to see it with the apricot accents that used to be there. Oh boy - clash city!

Will Robinson would have been right at home next to your grill.
I do envy you your ability to have fences. Our park doesn't allow them. Oh well. I can take your 'word' fettish and add to my 'Grace' on the wall. I like the idea just fine! Thanks!

Custom Doll Trunk with Doll and tons of clothes and accessories now available!

This took forever!  After transforming the 24 inch Bratz Dolls into "Just K.I.D.S" as part of the campaign to help rescue kids trapped in the sex trafficking industry, I got the crazy idea to convert a vintage suitcase into a doll trunk.  After making the inside compartments and decoupaging and hand painting the entire outside of the suitcase (both front and back) the set is now complete and up for auction on Ebay.





















Leave a comment if you want to bid on this amazing doll trunk.  You even get to pick which doll you want to be included.

Just a few more projects...like a working shower!

As promised, the following are some "after" pictures.  We have moved everything in and organized most of our things.  We still have several all day projects, like replacing the diverter valve and the washers in the shower.  Currently no functioning shower; but, I can always take a bath until we can get this done.  Yuck!

No time to write.  Just enough time to post a few pictures:













and clearly - Monkey is back to normal!
