Finished at last!!!!!!!

Finally this week the hole in the ceiling was repaired! You may remember me mentioning that in 2010 the roof over this room, which is our breakfast room leaked during a Nor Easter and did severe damage to the floors and the ceiling. I will not go into all of the details but needless to say it was never fixed correctly, consequently in a bad storm just prior to the hurricane that blew through here, the ceiling leaked...Again! And a bigger hole was cut into the ceiling  to see if they could locate the damage, oddly enough when they found the source it was nowhere near where the original people fixed. Go figure.

Nothing like a hole in the ceiling to add to the ambiance of a room!

In any case after have 3 weeks of people painting the outside of the house as well as fixing the hole everyone is gone and everything is put back into its place, just the way I like it!

The light fixture is called a "witches hat", it is hand forged iron and was made in the 1920's. It is from an old mansion on the Eastside of Milwaukee.

This painting is an original and I love it because it reminds me of Van Gogh

Family Room to left, kitchen to right.

I hope you have a happy Sunday and a fabulous week!
