Photos of the spare bedroom

I bet you thought I had forgotten about them?  I finally got around to posting the photos of the spare bedroom.  I have painted it a light cream colour, as the two windows in the room face east and north, so it only gets a little morning sun.

This shows the closet.  There are shelves (16 inches deep) in the right hand side of the closet, from floor to ceiling.
In the baskets is my quilting material.  They will move upstairs to the attic when we get that finished.
We installed the fan and light.
My mam sent this rug over with my brother for me.  It's a rag rug made out of fleece and is lovely.  A lady makes them for charity in Britain.  When I first got it I put it down in the family room and within minutes Molly had her squirrel and hedgehog on it and she then plopped herself down on it; so it got Molly's seal of approval also.

The only thing left to do in the spare bedroom is some varnishing.  I plan on doing it next week.

On Friday both dh and I got a few good jobs done.  He moved a pile of gravel under the mudroom, and got the remainder of the electrical work done in our bedroom.  He then ran some errands in town which was also a good job done.

I got two out of three loads of laundry done, the bathrooms cleaned, and hoovered through.  In the afternoon I went to town and got my hair cut (finally) and had a pedicure.  For the first time ever I got a flower painted on each of my big toes.

It's the first time I have been to this nail place.  Not sure if I will go there again.  I am picky about how clean a nail place is, as I did pick up a nail fungus at a place a few years ago.  This place was okay, but not the cleanest.  Also the girl I got didn't do the greatest of jobs.  PLUS and this is the big one, my appointment was at 1:30 pm and they were running so far behind I went for a haircut while I was waiting.  It was probably closer to 2:30 pm before they started doing my feet.  By the time I got home it was 3:45 pm.  If I made an appointment for something I expect to be seen at that time......other than at the doctor, where the doctor will be late for his own funeral as he is never on time.

It's Labour Day weekend here in Canada and the States.  So of course the weather sucks, rain all weekend, but at least it won't be stinking hot!!  I know in Britain you had your Bank Holiday last weekend; hoped you enjoyed that, and for those of you who have a long weekend this weekend, enjoy yours!

Your spare room looks lovely and just waiting for a visitor! Love the rug. I can see you have both worked very hard and now your efforts can be seen.
Your toes look pretty. I have never had a pedicure. I always thought I might like one but after your comments about the cleanliness and the fungus issue, I'm not so sure.
Blessings, Star

You might call it a 'rag rug' but I call it a clippy mat.

Hello Gill!! I really love your spare beddroom, and the rug is a nice finishing touch! Our weather is going to be really nice for the long weekend--Hurricaine Earl has seen to that! I hope you have an enjoyable weekend!!

Don't even contemplate going to that nail salon again! It will make them continue in their half-ass way. There are so many other places out there to try. Some are worthy of your business, some are not. Do not reward the later ones with your repeat business. ;)

Your spare room looks really nice. It looks like you have lots of quilting material. I am just starting to quilt and wondered when you find a fabric that you like how much do you buy or do you only buy for a quilt that you have planned?

Your spare bedroom looks great and your nails are really cute! I've actually never had a pedicure as I have gymnast and dancer syndrome. I did both and they both did such a number on my feet that I figure even with a pedicure they wouldn't look good!

Love the spare bedroom Gill. Your guests won't want to leave ;) I don't like going to the nail place. Don't really like people messing with my hands for some reason, and most definitely not my feet. Don't know where that all came from. I will say though that I did love getting them dipped in the hot paraffin bath. That felt lovely.

I've never had a pedicure, but thinking about it more and more, since it's getting harder and harder for me to cut my own toe nails. Yours looks pretty nice to me.

Looking good, Gill! Lot of work has paid off!
