Steve made an arched ceiling in the kitchen. It is pretty small 9x12. It will have track lighting and a chandelier in front of the window. Mary Clark gave us a split reed table and 4 chairs original to Florida circa 1940 and they will go under the window. The floor will be different shades of red clay tiles tumbled. I would like a creamy plaster on the walls. Blue and golden yellow accents and backsplash tiles along the sink and stove walls. Steve is making heartpine countertops and wood ceilings, but not this year!

Standing inside the front door looking at my fireplace and beyond is the dinningroom and entrance to the kitchen. See the table top halves leaned up against the fireplace? Solid walnut 1/2 a table top for the vanity in the master bath, $60! Fisherman made out of car parts for the store. 200lbs of dogs in the forefront.

The house looks pretty with it's coat of white primer. Can't wait to see the blue house w/creamy white trim and yellow front door and rafter tails. The windows are original to the house. Turn of the last century wavy glass. This house is full of light. Great window package!

This is the kitchen at the King St apartment. See the wall sconces? I brought them down from Anchor Cottage for the dinningroom in the Mulberry St house. Fresh grapefruit in the dish on the counter from Albert's tree in his yard. He brings some to work everyday. They taste like heaven.

Hopefully, by tomorrow I will have the pictures of 21 Mulberry St all fresh and drywalled. Here is a picture of our other room in the apartment. Rugs are Dash & Albert, pillows are from Anchor Cottage, quilt on raggy white sofa is Pine Cone Hill. I am standing in the kitchen! This is fun and easy. 5 minutes to vacume.

Our apartment is just under 300 sq ft. This is a picture of the bedroom. It came partly furnished and the rest came out of my Jeep! That's right, you've heard of bed in a bag? Well this is apartment in a Jeep:) I like how the Dash & Albert rug went w/the Ralph Lauren comforter and Rosie's mom's pillow cases she embroidered for me.

Almost through the month of February, in other words, winter in NE Florida. Steve ground and sanded the outside of the house and primed it. We have our colors picked out. Blue body, creamy white trim and pale yellow accents. 21 Mulberry is on the shady side of the street. So the pale colors become a little richer out of the sun.

Steve built this back porch off the master bedroom. Also, entry to the butler's pantry. I think we will screen it eventually and install a ceiling fan. I want large blue flagstones for a pathway w/red bricks on either side and cockle shell edging!

Steve took the original mantel off and is going to refurbish it. Thinking of putting electric flames in. It will take the chill off the house in the winter. Far left is a set of french doors that lead out to the postage stamp back yard from the master bedroom. Look how high the ceilings are!
