Why Is This Woman Smiling?

Those that read this blog may have gathered that I live in an older home. I love it...most of it anyway! I have been known to grumble now and again about the old kitchen and the just -as- old non-functioning bathroom (the only full bath in the house), but this house still makes me smile. I'm smiling even today when there is currently:

* no working sink (actually no sink at all)
* no toilet 
* no electricity
* a rigged up shower

yes, I'm still smiling because this: 

looks like THIS:

And like THIS:

and very soon I will smile even broader as an actual, better functioning, prettier bathroom takes the place of the above mess. The tub remains shrouded in plastic sheeting (so I can at least carefully shower in the morning) and will remain so until the new tub is delivered on Thursday (please Mr. Delivery Man, let this order be on time!!). The new toilet is in the garage, and the contractor has my sink. Every thing else is either at the Home Improvement store awaiting pick up (the tiles) or sitting in my sewing room, which isn't seeing any action these days! I am going to have to find a way to cart the machine downstairs so I can sew the binding on the mega quilt that has to be done for Christmas!

But this woman continues to smile. It has been a long time coming, and that is a good thing. Taking the time to really think about what I wanted led me down the path to simplicity. Simple woman, simple tastes, and my new "happy color"....gray!
As eldest child so wisely said: Anything is better than what we had to begin with.
How true, how true!

I'll wait patiently until it is done and then I'll stand, smile, and admire! Ahhhh......the thought of form and function, as well as pretty! I can do "pretty".
