25 Feb 2011


more participants at Susanne at Living to tell the Story.

1. Again I can't say that this week has been my favorite ! The painters are gone and it was time to clean up and put everything into place.

2. We shared the work, Mr. G. hit the nails in the walls and put up the pictures which I had selected before

He washed up the cristal and Swarovski cats which now shine like diamonds !
Then he settled down for a well deserved rest and played cards on the computer in Pookie's company.


While I changed the furniture and put all the decorations back in the living room. The floors were cleaned by our good cleaning lady Janka and everything looks now new and shiny


I was very proud of the result of my closet which I had had painted in the same color than the walls and had found these beautiful door knobs in my favorite Indian shop. Arthur demonstrates not very enthousiastically how it looks now.


I moved my cats around and Arthur kept me company he probably thought that I ran out of decorations and helped out.

I made a new flower arrangement and put my cats on the new shelves

I even found a place for Mr. G's original Ferrari rim, which had been always in my way by putting it on a newspaper rack, which I had found in the basement. He was very happy with my invention.

I hope next week will be more interesting !

Brilliant idea for the Ferrari rim.
Your house looks great, and the cats seem to have accepted the changes philosophically.
Good for you!

Arthur look like he fits right in with the decorations on the window sill. That picture made me smile.
