French Addition


Hello everyone, still cold and windy in NJ.  Hoping some warmer sunny days will arrive soon.

I decided to make a few changes in the kitchen.  Today, I am going to share a French sign I made for my oven hood.

I moved my cow head to a new spot I will show you another day.


Isn’t she pretty?  John cut the wood to fit perfectly.  If anyone has interest in a custom one let me know through my shop.


This is the project we are currently working on.  John has been so great going into a chilly garage to do carpentry work.  I made him get a portable ceramic heater and he said it works great.


Lots of painting and fine tuning to be done this weekend.  I will be showing this soon in my office.  We took our time with my office because some decision needed to be made.  As you can see, I get beautiful afternoon sun.


These two cuties are waiting for the warm weather to play outside.  They are loosing their patience big time!

Have a great rest of the week.
