Hallway - very slow....

Good Morning!!

I had to pause my works around the house...

I was extremely busy....  Had 2 garage sales, granddaughter's birthday party, and also, I had to watch my grand daughter while her parents work.  I didn't want to do anything with tools when my little girl is around.  I have to pause it for while.

I've been working on I L Y so that way, I can sell it to earn money for home fund.


This one is my 2nd ones.  

Now, my hall way.  
It is not finished.  I need to order window, get some drywalls for the ceiling and walls.  Also, I need to get me 2 nice lights and 3 ways switch.  Hopefully, I will finish next month or early of August.  

What I had done in previous weeks ago.  It's awful and lots of works.  



 Near the back of the door. 
I had to rip everything out what's rotten.  I added studs and then added OSB wood on top.  
Lots of screws!! 
Looks so MUCH better ! 

2nd "hole"
The wall was peeling real bad because of water coming in from the window.  There was a vent that it was useless.  I ripped it off and added studs and OSB wood.  
It was awkward because it was the middle of the hallway. 


3rd "Hole"
Near front door.  The floor was rotten - of course from the rain or leak from the front door. 
Ugh. I repeated it.. 


 I was afraid that my little grand-kids feet would go thur the hole.  It scares me, big time! 

Finally, I covered it up with OSB wood.  Will put carpet in the future.  

I will have to remove ceiling panels ( started to dip ), both sides of the walls.  Will put fiberglass insulation for ceiling, will have to add new window, and drywalls.  I can't wait to finish it before Early of August.   

Me working on bedroom's floor.  It was so HOT!! :)

Back to my grand daughter!  Have a great week!  Xo..

Hummingbird Feeder Stand...

Morning!

I had 2 black lamp stands for many years and I'm done with it.  I was about to throw it away...
....
Wait a minute...



I cut the light socket and cord off because it already had a hole. 
Just hooked a hummingbird feeder on the stand.  Ta DA! 
All done! 

I hope I will see a couple of hummingbirds soon!!

Cobalt Blue Chair and Icky Floor of Hallway...

Hi !

I can't remember who gave me an old chair with twine seat. It was falling apart and I would hate to throw it away. I decided to give a try.... Paint on it :)

It had a kid's scribble note on top of the wood and I don't know what it says...
I won't LET anyone to sit on it or their feet would be up the air!! :)



* Marked by crayon on the wood*.. 

Years ago, I got a free pint of paint from online.  I don't know why I picked Cobalt blue so I decided to use it up.  So BLUE! 


All done :) 

I decided to put it on my flower garden.  I used an old enamel bowl as bird bath and come to find out that it was leaking.  Errrrrrrrr... rust hole.  I have to put E6000 glue to cover the hole so I can fill 'er up with water.  
Free Bird Bath! 


With out bird bath.  I think it looks good!!! 
:) 

========================================================
My hallway...
Last Tues.. ( 04-14-2013)
Something stank. 
I dislike old carpet .... it smelled like previous owner. I decided to RIP it out!! 
Nasty... Disgusting...
I have no clue how old it was.... probably back in late of 1970's




Bye Bye Sucker! 


Carpet padding - the worst part.... it fell apart..
*sneeze*...


Padding dusts!!! 


Today, I finally ripped the mosaic tiles...
See wood panel on side... 

HOLES!! 
It was ruined by rain.  I'm not surprised to see another holes and it will be taken care of ... soon! 
Probably tomorrow, I will call Lowe's, Menards and others about replacement window. 

:) 

Till next time...

April 19, 2013 1972 Baron

I've been thinking about getting me a mobile home since last Fall.  I researched about MH for long time and learned lots of new ideas.  Till, April 19, 2013..

I BOUGHT A MOBILE HOME!!

WHAT AM I THINKING?

OH Yeaaaa, I bought it = JUST for me!!!

Ooooo Gosh!



It is 1972 Baron.  It has 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom.  ( I was hoping for 1 1/2 bathrooms.)  It has 60 feet long and I think it's 19 feet wide.  720 sq feet.  I do not care what other people think of it. It's all mine!  Every room had a dark "cave" room!!  It looked smaller and made me feel "blah".

It has 18 windows.

Even, I can't open one window!

Bleh.

Every room has bad corner "rotten" woods.

ooooKKKaaayyy!

I am not rushing to fix all the rooms and I'm taking one at a time.

Here are the pictures .....

MOVING DAY:


Got my very own keys! 
No more landlord!
I"m the owner!! 


My best friend, MM and I.. 
I was not feeling very well due of surgery.  I looked so pale. 
Icky! 


Weee! 
Drove 45 minutes to gather my things and drove another 45 minutes back to my MH.


I was excited to sit on my favorite "Fat" chair! I haven't see my things for almost 4 months! 


Getting full..... and.... 


We filled up in Rental truck and 2 SUVs!!!

YEAH!

how do you like my background and header?  I like it! :)
It takes me forever to figure the gadgets out and I'm glad that I'm not bald yet!!

The weather is AWFUL because the temperature went up to 100 degree for DAYS!!  I heard that this Saturday, it supposes to go up to 103.  I'm not looking forward to it and I'm looking forward to FALL !!  Poor A/C running like crazy and I'm very lucky to have 2 ACs !!

Being stuck in home, I've been working on Zentangle to keep my mind busy.  It's fun doing this but I need to go back to work on my crafts very soon.  *Tsk tsk*.. :)

Here is my artwork...

 Flowers ( Looks like 1970's Hippie Flowers )  with green background...

Till Next time!  ( Stay cool !! ) XoX

Eek...

Wow, I haven't write anything in my blog since last Feb 5th!

I've been real busy since last spring.  Really, I don't know where to start...
I sold my car because it had stopped running and looked like it needed new parts.  I can't afford to get it repair.  I just decided to sell my car and ended up using my 25+ years old bike!  I don't miss paying insurance and gas!

Here is my ole' Savannah bike and of course, it's PINK! :) The basket up front of my bike is very very useful and I'm glad that I got it!  :)


So far, I've been working on America Quilt and it needs foot border.  Then, I will add batting and back fabric.... Hand stitching... Perfect for 4th of July! AMERICAAAAA! 

During night time, I am working \ hand-stitch on Colorful Stars. I think 2 more rows to finish everything! Woo woo.. and next will be bind around the quilt.  THEN, I will be done! *can't wait!*
What's next? 
I will try to work on my blog and probably will change my border and background, if I have the time!  

You all have a GREAT Summer and please stay cool and hydrate!! 
Till next time!  XoX D.
