Spring brings so much re-birth and a fresh start...

 We had our new door installed late last month...it went really smoothly, they did a great job framing in the opening to fit our new 36" door, it looks perfect and it works beautifully and keeps all the weather and critters out...so that is amazing... it sounds like a real door...the wood doors were very loud and there was a wood breaking noise that they would make every time they were opened...we could see outside 24/7 through gaps around the doors and under the doors... so replacing the doors was 100% necessary...the door was bought through Home Depot and is a Doorplex door.
I still have not planted anything...I'm sad about that...but the windows will sadly need to be removed and replaced and I imagine that will cause a mess and if I plant here the plants will surely be destroyed so I will be patient...as well we want to switch out the light above the door and I think that might require scaffolding... 

I am so glad we went with the seeded glass for the door...I can still see through it but it is private enough for us and it has loads of character, I wanted it to blend nicely with our old windows that we thought we could keep, sadly we can't...we really really tried, we honestly don't have the $40,000 laying around to replace them but if we don't the walls will rot...I need a sad face emoji here.

The coffee bar is coming along nicely with the addition of my barn door style chalk board...

I made this table to match our exsisting tables from the old house, one of them worked but this space allowance was tight so I made a smaller version.

I have made several of these antique bracelet holders and gave them as gifts for mothers day...the bottom is old reclaimed flooring from our new house.

Hope everyone enjoyed a lovely Mother's Day.
