Snowy Stones

And the good news is... by March 14th, Mother Nature will have cleaned off our crooked old stone steps. That is, if she got the Memo. . . .


  1. Hi Cass, I came by to see your blog, and what a lovely blog it is! I LOVE your old house (I always wanted an old house myself.) Also, thanks for visiting me, AND for adding me to your favorites list! I always enjoy meeting new people and visiting their blogs...I'll add you to my favorites list too! Come on by anytime!

  2. Hi Cass,
    The primer was oil based, but the paint is water based. We sand alot, prime, sand more, prime, sand more, prime ...until we can't see the oak grain. We have also skimmed a wood putty over the middle flat saction of the cabinet doors to cover the grain. Of course after that you would have to sand & prime & paint. Hope that helps! It does make a huge difference by painting the cabinets! Takes them from outdated to awesome!

  3. I love, love, love your home.---But then I have always had a thing for old houses. They are money pits but they have such character! Thanks for stopping by to see my blog today!


  4. Hi Cass,

    I couldn't resist dropping by, when I saw you lived in Rockaway. I had an Aunt living in Rockaway Beach, when I was a little girl. We visited her often and have wonderful memories of those times.

    So....your a dishaholic, so sorry, :( hope you recover soon. ;) I'm afraid I never have.

    Hope your house blessing goes well, it was something the Priests don't seem to do down here. I'll send Mother Nature a memo about the weather. ;)


  5. I know this may sound weird but what a pretty picture with the snow on the beautiful steps. Hugs, Bobbi Jo
