Finished the Texturing and Tried a Few Leaf Stencils on Walls

Click photos to enlarge for better viewing

I took the first photo early this morning right after I finished that last area-that was still wet. The next two photos are my leaf stencils used with this same joint mud-using to cover up some bad spots in walls I  am going to place them randomly around the walls as well

Checking In

Good morning to all my friends and readers and Welcome in October-one of my most favorite months of the year.

     I have busy busy helping hubby do some things he can't do with his broken finger and super swollen hand, and working on my ceiling-still. This was much harder for me than I anticipated especially with constantly moving heavy furniture around-but I can see the end of the texturing soon.
    It will need a coat of Kilnz paint first and then the paint-and next on to the walls which are in worse shape than I realized so will be using my leaf stencils to hide the worse areas. That also involves removing all the socket covers-I bought new ones, and removing all the base trim-and purchasing new trim. I also will need new door trim for that oak door which leads to my creative room. I am thinking of looking at Pergo's trim to see how expensive it is so will match the floors.
    I was hoping to get my floor in after the walls but we have deer camp here mid November so don't know if I can get it done by then-will see how the time goes

I am so far behind on everything else-garden clean up etc, and no natural dyeing-sigh-I am working on not getting distracted from this living room renovation. Although it pains me see the goldenrod blooming and not dyeing with it and my indigo is ready as well-sigh.

We saw one lone hummingbird at the feeders last week so they are all gone now-off to their next home-I miss them already-but I have replaced the nectar feeders with lots of seed feeders.

For my breaks instead of blogging and facebook I have been reading on my computer kindle. Just finished the two box sets of Morna's Legacy by Bethany Claire. These are Scottish romance stories with time travel-have really enjoyed the series and anxious now for her next book in the series.The time period is from the 1600s and traveling to the present-fun idea as I would love to go back to the 1700s or 1800s 
     I have decided to purchase either the paperwhite or voyage kindle-waiting for cyber monday in hopes of sales.

  Hope this finds you all well, happy and in good spirits
