Bedroom Hallway

Just another ugly, gloomy hallway, but a smaller one, off the bedroom and into the bathroom.  This has been my project for the past week.

Lots of scraping and sanding, my favorite thing to do, before painting.

When we looked at the house initially, this bathroom had a leak in the shower which caused so much mold in that room it had to be entirely ripped out and re-built.  The moisture from the leak peeled the paint on the plaster walls in both this hallway and the bedroom.

I decided to use Gray Owl, the trim paint color from the bedroom, for this hallway instead of all white like the main hallway, hoping it would not be too dark.  It really turned out nice with the white trim, and still-to-be-painted white ceiling.  I finally found a place for one of my watercolors I bought at a marketplace many years ago on a trip to Peru.

These were also purchased in Peru, but I still need to find a place to hang them. 

Different things blooming in the garden signifying fall is approaching.

Lots of interesting shrooms, too!

On the rescue front, this is sweet senior Pixie in Indiana.  She is blind.  Pixie's owners have let her roam the town where she has stopped traffic and been picked up by AC many times and brought to the shelter and was returned to her owners.  This time the shelter reached out to chow rescue to get her in a safe home.  Here, poor Pixie fell into a window well of an apartment, and it rained on her all night.  I cannot believe she was not injured.

I had two adopters for Pixie, one in TX and one in PA, whichever I could set a transport up for first would win her.  Then a friend in MI chow rescue asked my permission to adopt Pixie, and it was decided that would be the best home for her.

This little guy reminded me so much of Daddy.  I worked on him all week.  I finally got a rescue in GA to take him and I was going to get him this weekend, but today a local rescue pulled him from the shelter.  I was very sad that I would not get to meet him because I had put so much time and effort into trying to save him.  Tomorrow will be a piece of cake going to work compared to the hours and headaches spent on trying to place this guy.

And this right here is a jar of Grapefruit Mojitos to reward myself for the long, hard week I had trying to save dogs.  Recipe found on Pinterest!
