Lots of small changes have been happening around here, many of which seem too small to document, but hey...it's our house and our blog, so why not? Besides, we're pretty much wrapping up the interiors. Which is really the point, after all!
This is one seemingly minor change that actually had a big impact. We installed solid brass sash locks in our formal living room and formal dining room. Amazing how much of a change they made in the overall look of the space! It's little details like this that can really make a space feel complete.
Similarly small details, of which we're inordinately proud, can be found in our downstairs powder room. This little space was outfitted with pink and black tile and an acoustic ceiling when we bought the house. Big change! The print is a hand colored antique print of the terrace at Central Park, a place which holds a lot of great memories for us.
Another random project that looks incredibly unimpressive to other people but which makes a big difference in our everyday lives: we replaced several back doors around the house. Here's the one we use most often...yay, it opens, closes, LOCKS, and is airtight!
And another gratuitous nook shot...this is Brian's pet project on the interior of the house, and he's justifiably proud of his decorating enedeavors.
Next up...this is our front door, which is still really really old, but at least now looks pretty nice. We're still planning on replacing the door (no boos from the peanut gallery, please! It's OLD but not original, and it's in really rough shape. And we're replacing it with a solid wood door.), but in the meantime, I'd say Brian did an awesome job refinishing it and the interesting surround. We'ved 86-ed the scary aluminum screen door from 1950, by the way, but if you want it, it's sitting in our barn
And last but not least, here are some shots of the area's wildlife...more or less wild, depending on the particular subject matter.
Here's a Golden Eagle we observed hunting in our front yard.
And the more commonly seen Red-Tailed Hawk, a pair of which nest in our woods.
Hee hee! Funny photo of a deer in our yard.
And no big post would be complete without the dog photos. Here's Jack in a shirt (necessitated by a little sore spot which his brother kept licking):
And my two gorgeous blondes together, enjoying the early spring weather:
