Happy Birthday America!!

 So, was your week-end productive?  Ours was..

Mr. B finished the front room built-ins {so far...}


He has done such a wonderful job of "finishing" our home!  He does all the design, the installation and even the decorating.







He has always loved building things..

..and yes, I do realize how lucky I am..

..and no, just because I work for a DNA company, I cannot "clone" him...

...and even if I could, my sister(s) want the first copies.

Course, we did have to go though this first..




and he did have to work with 2 supervisors..who were busy doing what "supervisors" do..


But, in the end...I think it's absolutely wONdeRfuL!!



Hope you all have a great short week {only 4 days of work {outside the home} for us :-)

Good night and sweet dreams ..

He did an awesome job! I just love built-ins. I am, however, concerned about the dogs. It appears you've been working them a tad too hard.

Fantastic job! Just wonderful. What a beaUtifuL area to display some neat family treasures and photographs. No wonder your sisters want you to clone Mr.B.! Glad you had such a nice weekend...short work week, too, so a new weekend will be here before you know it.

I'm sure you couldn't have done it without the supervisors. Such a hard job... Mr. B is akeeper, alright! Dang. I'm jealous of the built ins. So beautiful. And the decorations are divine.

And thank you for the great photos of the job, well done. I love to get peeks into the homes of blogger buddies. :-)

If I was to visit your home I wouldn't be able to sit down until I had examined every treasure on every shelf of that room. It looks beautiful.

They're ALL keepers! Maybe sometime I'll get to see it for real :)

Glad you had a good 3 dayer....

Your house looks so pretty!

Ok, so maybe you can't clone him, but can you lease him out!? My hubby is great at starting projects, but nothing ever gets finished, just jury rigged!

Those are the cutest and laziest looking supervisors!!
I dream of a wall cabinet someday to house my TV and books.
Yes, you are a lucky lady!
