That’s So Colonial! : Daily Art Practice
My hubby is plugging away at our remodel, but it has been slow as of late due to some difficulties with removing old flooring. Here is a photo of the before (ugly brown) and the after (gray), entry and landing. Since this photo was taken, my husband has completed the flooring for the landing and stairs, minus the molding. The area looks so much brighter with the lighter colors and I can finally see all the lovely colors on the globes of my Moroccan light fixture. Before they blended into the brown wall that was in the background. I can’t wait to share a final when it is all done.

Our recent vacation to Williamsburg inspired a few paintings of historic buildings. Tarpley, Thompson and Company is a clothing store in Williamsburg that sells historic clothing, accessories and cloth. I would have loved to purchase some of the fabric but it was a bit out of my budget. My daughter purchased this fan as one of her souvenir’s.
If you have never been to Williamsburg, the architecture is quite simple, and the elegance is added in the accessories. I found the windows to be the most elegant feature on this building. They were curved, which was unusual for the buildings back then.
I am joining the tea Day ladies, hosted by Elizabeth and Bleubeard. My tea today is the relaxing Tension Tamer. Perfect for unwinding and aides in digestion due to the peppermint.
Happy Tea Day,
