Today my daughter Ashley stopped at my house on her way back from Cape Cod (she had to, she had to return my car that she borrowed!) and we talked all the way to her house about her weekend, her life, her school works. It was the first time in a long while that we had the chance to be together just the two of us. She has a fixer upper that we bought her and her husband and we are decorating Primitive style. My sweetheart laid the wide pine boards for them and stained them her color choice. It's sort of a golden brown. They came out beautiful. He used the square hand cut iron nails from Tremont Nail Company in Wareham, MA. She copied from our house in Plymouth where
she grew up. We are doing crown molding and chair railing like the Williamsburg style houses from the 1790's. The colors are going to be from Old Village Paint historical colors. So, lots to do and pick out and I'm so happy that she's "following in my footsteps" as far as decorating styles go. She's going to college and works 6 days a week. She's a go getter, my girl. I'm very proud of her.
