In our church we have visiting teachers, which are ladies who try to drop by once a month for a visit and to leave a short message on a gospel subject. Mine for the past few years has been Rebecca (she used to go by Becky but is trying to change to Rebecca). Rebecca is a single lady and a school teacher. She is very talented musically with a beautiful voice and plays piano (and probably other instruments too) wonderfully. I guess that she is also a do it yourselfer, as she took on an old house and has turned it into a beautiful home doing much of the work herself. The work is still going on in fact. Above is a picture of her yard which is a double lot in the little town where I live in Central Florida. The picture below is the front of her house which was built many decades ago by a prominent politician as his summer home. A couple of weeks ago she had several ladies over for a "tea", there wasn't any tea, but there was juice and fresh fruit, ham, roasted potatoes a breakfast casserole and several other yummy dishes. I took a plate home for DH too, as he loves fruit. I asked her a couple of days later if I could come and take some pictures of her home for my blog and she graciously allowed me to. Her floor she laid herself from boards she got from a house that had been build around 1918 and was being torn down. She got some discouragement from some of the men in the church, but she persevered and it is beautiful. I think that the aha! gives her a little pleasure, she is human after all. Her ceiling is stencilled, and her kitchen cupboards came from another house that was being demolished. They have the old wavy glass and are quite beautiful. We have a new outdoor mall about 12 miles from us where Joann's fabric store is, and that is where the house stood that she got her cupboards from. It's an unusual home and I was happy to have been invited and I hope that you enjoyed the little tour also.
