Starting Again

Come on in! It's been a really long time.

To summarize the past 8 months-we moved from old house into apartment-we moved from apartment into new house. My Dad passed away in the midst of this. We've been back and forth to my Dad's, to Chicago and all around chaos. I think I'm finally getting organized enough to start again.
I've been unpacking, organizing, painting, sewing, more painting and constructing since we've been in the new house. Above is one little project that I did. Bought the vintage escutcheons on Etsy and then the porcelain door knobs. Added them to our new his and hers office. I think they came out rather nice!

Above is a sneak peak. I can't wait to share more with you. Projects I've been working on, projects I hope to finish and new ones I haven't even started on yet. I have been keeping up with your blogs, just haven't been commenting-I felt like there wasn't enough time. But now I'm getting things under control. I hope to blog at least once a week. So here we go. I really missed you guys!!


  1. Hey Leslie...welcome back to blogging! Even though you didn't mention you were posting today...I had a feeling you were! Looking forward to more to ya later! Donna

  2. I've missed you too and I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your dad. But is it okay to say I'm glad to see you back? I sure hope so!

    P.S. Really drooling over that framed music!

  3. I was so happy to see a new post here. I can see that your life was turned upside down for quite a while. I'm sorry to hear about your Dad's passing.
    Looking forward to seeing lots of pics of your new home.

  4. Welcome home!

    So sorry for your loss. I do understand loss and change.

    Looking forward to seeing the house.

    Hugs Cindy from Rick-Rack and Gingham
