Unplanned progress

I never expected to get anything done this weekend.  Yesterday was my total down day, and today, we had plans to host my in-laws for mother's day, so I was fully expecting no progress.  But Kip had other ideas, so I went along for the ride.

Penny, as always, was in the thick of things..."helping" as we put together our mail-order bookcase.

We FINALLY got the guitars hung too.

And here is the final result for our organized hobby corner.  The bookcase is assembled and filled with books on painting, photography, home-brewing, masonry, religious studies, and general fiction.  We are assembling a few family photos for the top and the hat boxes contain many more snapshot not organized (yet) into albums.  These are part of those crucial "what to grab in the event of a fire" items.

As a final treat, we hung two mixed media (watercolor, pen&ink) pieces we purchased from one of our favorite Cape Cod artists - and fellow Fresh Paint gallery artist of Kip's Selma Alden.  We love her work.

The task list is not yet done, as we still must tackle the closet doors and the grid of Kip's photos.

But I could not be happier with the feeling I get when I step into this room.  While work must be done here, it is still a haven...which was exactly what we hoped for.
