The Wintersleep.

Hello All!

I've been having a bit of a winter rest, taking time to recharge and reflect after the very busy holiday season.  It's been a working rest, however, as I've been slowly picking away at home projects and renos.

We are currently in the midst of refinishing and repairing our plaster walls and discovering the mysteries beneath the many, many layers of wallpaper.  It's been a bit of a wallpaper time machine, and we even discovered a section of the house with what appears to be the oldest paper (likely late 1800's or turn of the century) as it has been block printed.

It's been a beautiful, very mild winter so far, so I've been spending a lot of time exploring the property, walking through the forest and soaking up the quiet.  Making a move from an extremely different environment definitely shifts your perspective...for me the peace..and the darkness of night have had the most impact.  It is so incredibly still and there are oh so many stars!  

Thought I'd photo journal the last month or so around here, as it's been difficult to find the time to write with all of the home renos and projects going on here.  Follow me on Instagram to join me on my adventures:
