Beautiful Brooklyn💖

Good morning friends ~

Pete & I stayed at our daughters for 4 days.  We did some exploring in her area.

Exploring Prospect Park was the highlight of our visit.  It sits on 585-acre and is 151 years old.  What a gem and in walking distance to our daughters place.

We were at LaFrak Center at Lakeside.

The lake is home to hundreds of Red ear Slider turtles  🐢

The rustic arches were breath taking

Yes that is my husband being a nut as usual. But, this is one of the things I love about him.

The boathouse in Prospect Park was built in 1905 & one of NY first building to be declared an historic landmark.

We went inside, but sorry no pictures.  The staircase was amazing.  You can use both sides of the staircase to enter the second floor deck area.  When on the deck you see Lullwater Bridge.

The waterfall under the bridge is so peaceful.

I hope you enjoyed our small tour of Prospect Park.

Have a peaceful day.  Turn up the sound on the video, and it will start or end you day peacefully.

Much love,

Rose 💕

What a difference

Hi friends ~

We cleaned all the outdoor furniture, set it all up on our small deck, got rid of a few thing that took up too much room and planed a few flowers.

Purchased an indoor outdoor rug, and I can’t believe the difference that made.

I love how it pulls all the navy & white together.

Check out this sweet little cat that sits on the side of the pot that holds my mint.

Hoping your Saturday is wonderful.

Much love,

Rose ♥️

95%Finished

Good morning friends ~

Today when I woke up, still in the guest room I slowly walked to the Master Bedroom and looked at this amazing room.  Something I worked on for 6+ months.

It truly payed off.  The hours I spent looking through Pinterest and pictures I put onto my New Master board.

I’m overjoyed with the results.

The moldings are beautiful and we had an artist created this for us.

I love the shelf above the bed.  It is 5” deep so it can hold pictures, and pretty much so many other things.

The end table is perfect.  There is a hidden small table that pulls out for a cup of coffee or tea, and lets be honest an occasional glass of wine.

The wood horse sits on top of the armoire.

The wood cabinet holds very special things given to me, especially our first set of wedding bands make by my Dad ♥️♥️

Wishing you a beautiful weekend.

Much love,

Rose

Almost completed

Good morning friends ~

We are on our final stage with the Master Bedroom & Bathroom.

We had an amazing contractor do all our moldings & paint.

The room looks so beautiful.

We chose Benjamin Moore “Beacon Gray” and so glad we did.  It’s such a soft blue gray color.

We chose to do board & batten for the lower half of the walls.

The battens waiting to be put up.  I’m getting so excited for this to be finished.

The last picture is some of the detail work being created.

I am so happy with the results.

Closet Almost completed

Hi friends ~

Here we are inside the closet.

Closet maid organizer finished.

Wallpaper finished.

Mirror is up and dresser in place.  All my cloths in order.

Just waiting for the medallion to arrive then the chandelier can go up.

Still need a few baskets for the cubbies, and clear boxes for my boots.

70DB1AF1-7079-4847-886B-53905403B8DAMy jewelry draw was made by Fine Art Holders  on Etsy

The top drawer in the dresser was 4” deep, so made for a great spot for my jewelry.

The last 2 photos –

I stained the small tray, cut a piece of wallpaper, and placed it under a piece of glass.

Perfect spot for my perfume, and a small ceramic box which houses my earrings.

Hope this finds you all having a wonderful day.

Much Love,

Rose

New Master Bed & Bath

Hello friends ~

Pete & I will be celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary in May, and we talked about going away,  but redoing our bedroom was a better idea for both of us.  We love staying in watching a movie and cooking together, so that being said we chose to remodel our Master Bed & Bath.

This is a little peek of what’s to come~
