Lights, Paint, Action!

There is so much going on at 980 Shady that it's hard to tell you about every lovely little detail. But what I am most excited about right now is that Landschute is done with the attic (the boy's room,) the second floor bedrooms (master and girls,) the baths, the basement (just wait until you see how cool-pics coming) and they have moved onto the main floor! The most exciting news at 980 Shady is that THE KITCHEN CABINETS ARE BEING SET IN PLACE!!! Can you tell that I'm excited? :)

I mentioned in my last post that Mary Monson has done such a fabulous job in finding vintage lights and I wanted to give you a sneak peek at her findings! I cannot wait to see them up and lit!

I also stopped out at the Junk Bonanza last weekend and came across a very special old pub sign. It says "Courage" at the top and "The Silent Whistle" below. It used to sit across from an old train station and when the train station closed, they renamed the pub, "The Silent Whistle." As some of you know, we live across the street from the railroad track that runs through downtown Wayzata and I hear that not-so silent whistle quite often. Needless to say, I HAD to have this sign. When I went back to pick it up, the sales woman told me that she could have sold it 200 times. It is such a great piece and will look amazing in the basement.
