Welcome to Cross Thread Thursday! Brought to you yet again by those indomitable little elves at HackerspaceWhitenoise ,GroupthinkPowder RoomOdeckTayOppoBacktalkClashtalkCrossTalk, & Gawrker!

How has your week been? Anything wonderful? Anything crappy? Oldest daughter is doing really well, going to PT and getting a workout (which she’s been complaining about!) so she’ll be ready to return to work the end of the month.

We finished the living room except for husband’s chair which we have to order, so here’s a picture!

I bought an antique chair for the corner where the tree was. I bought it on eBay. I’ve never bought furniture on eBay before. It was shipped from Indianapolis to Michigan and I admit, I was leary, but it came, it’s beautiful and I’m so happy with it! I do a lot of buying and selling on eBay and know to read all the feedback and such, but still. However, it worked, it was a great purchase and it’s perfect.

It only took two years to finish the fireplace and room...

What about you? Have you done or are you in the midst of a renovation? Do you DIY or contract it out? If you contract it out, are you always happy with it when it’s done? If you’re planning one, what are you doing? Next for us is redoing the master bath. Let’s hope it doesn’t take two years for that!

I leave you with my blue rescue dobe, soakin’ up the warmth from the fireplace...

Talk to me! Let me know what’s up. Projects, designs, plans. It’s the middle of winter and going to be 50 in Michigan this weekend. Anything at all. But as always, no politics. As tempting as I know it will be today, there are too many other places in the Kinjaverse for that.
