New, Not So New



I'd mentioned that we'd had our place renovated and a number of you have asked to see some pics. I hadn't really gone around to take photos yet, because even though we had moved back in, there are still little bits and pieces here and there that need fixing.    


Singwa - Wed, Apr 13 2016
Not sure when the contractor will get around to fixing everything that still needs to be fixed or touched up, but in the meantime, here is a photo of our entry way.  Photo ledge and hanging baskets courtesy of Ikea.  Umbra wall hooks.  Mother-in-law's tongue (Sansevieria trifasciata) from the local flower market.

I have to say that I am quite happy that we renovated.  I was getting really tired of our old floor --nicked in a lot of places and I did not like the old color one bit (kind of yellowish-cream).  Now we have a whitish-gray wooden floor, which I love, love, LOVE.  I think the floor is one of things that I love most after the renovation. 

I will share more pictures as and when things come together more. Stay tuned!

Sounds like you make wonderful changes! I had never heard that name for the plant - we call it snake plant here!

We went on a weekday and it was following a the tomb sweeping holiday, so there were no crowds. I also went once in January and there were no crowds. The park is pretty large.

I love those signs. It must be nice having the renovations pretty much done and I hope the final touch ups are finished soon.
