It's been a long time

Forgive me for going dark for so long.  It's not as though I have not been working, it's that the progress here at the homestead is more subtle and slow.  I am excited to show you a few things that have changed.

We've painted a wall in the kitchen black.  It's chalkboard paint.  Thanks to Kevin for the notion, I really like the way it finishes off the space.
I've yet to get the darn chalk.

Also, we finally got our super sized half moon shaped French mattress style cushion.  It's amazing.
U¨ber cozy den

Notice the sconces that were installed today.
Originally I specified the Jielde sconces, but these are from Restoration Hardware.  They work well in the space.  It'll take some fussing to get the arms where we want them.
