The Friday Files




Hello, dear friends.  I hope that you all had a good week.  The Mister and I spent most of our time hanging paintings, pictures, and mirrors.  I'm not sure we'll keep everything as it is, but it beats having it all spread out all over the floors.

Tonight, the Mister and I are off to an old friend's house for dinner, which I am very excited about.  The rest of the weekend will be spent arranging and rearranging. Then, on Monday, the wallpaper gent arrives to whip up his magic in the powder room.








What a gorgeous renovation of this Kentucky Home!!








Anybody from Michigan looking for a project?

This Tudor has great bones and needs a little TLC and some big bucks.

I'm Katie. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am an empty nester meandering through my middle-aged years while entangled in the never-ending process of renovating an antique home on the South Shore of Massachusetts. I love to write about books, movies, TV, celebrities, decorating, and weekend adventures. My favorite writing material is derived from my family: the Mister, my girls, #1 and #2, and my two untrainable, rambunctious pups, Chowdah and Chili.

  7. Again, so many goodies on this Friday edition that I am finally getting around to on Monday. But to invest what would be required on restoring that Tudor in Detroit is absurd. If it were in Charleston or Savannah or even Plano, okay, but who wants to live in Detroit.
