To Name a Few Favorites

We started this journey a year ago. Our daughter Leah was home for Christmas when we showed her what was to be our future home.
She might be the only member of our family that didn't think we were crazy...

This past Thanksgiving, Leah was home again and saw the progress that had been made.

The house is not finished yet, but we are getting closer day by day.
A few of my favorite things around the house include the ceiling in our powder bath. It is a patchwork of found ceiling tiles from one of the buildings in downtown McKinney. Someone suggested we paint the tiles. I happen to like it just the way it is....unique.

I love my dining room. Mr. Ella is going to build me a huge farm table to put in here!
The original pocket doors and the added trim work are just perfect.

We brought in old crusty pieces where we could.

My pantry doors...

My farm sink....

The pressed tin behind the range.
(The cabinets are going to be distressed to look old.)

The old doors we saved.

And my most favorite studio!!!!

I can't wait. I wish I could just twitch my nose and it would all be finished and everything in its place!
