The Little Bag that Could

We're traveling again! This time we made a stop in SC for and extended stay:

(My favorite bag: I made this tote in black and white cotton over a canvas bag.
I added lace and a bead trim around the top.)

Leaving San Diego for a "3 Hour Tour"!...actually a 3 week vacation to Charleston to see my grandchildren and the new house my daughter and son-in-law bought at Folly Beach. It's an old beach cottage, built in 1946, across the street from the Atlantic Ocean!

My ticket was extended for a "3 Month Tour"!!! My daughter asked if I could stay and help with the restoration. Lots of work to be done. We've gutted the house and are in the process of restoring the old bead board interior.

You can find me daily behind this mask and goggles, wielding a hammer and crowbar!

The house was just a cottage and not meant for year round living so heating and air had to be installed along with insulating the entire house. Insulation is tomorrow and on thursday the drywallers will be here to do the walls and ceilings in the bedrooms and in the carriage house (the children's playroom above the garage).

Then Deb and I will let the games begin!!! Lots of painting! Every day Girlie asks if the house is pretty yet? And we reply, "Not yet!" "But soon!!!"

And then of course, comes the move!!! Like we don't already have enough on our plate!!!

I'll post some pictures when I get a minute....we've barely had time to eat and sleep so I'm behind on my blogging and pictures.
