In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Coral Belle's floor and wall update
So last week a friend called and asked what I was doing today. Painting Coral Belle's floor.
She popped by as she was out running errands and we were discussing the paneling wall. She gave me several options, and she does a lot of this kind of work, and she finally said, "I could dry brush that for you and it wouldn't take me long at all."
So she did!
Then we both started in on the floor. I decided to use the same paint/stain that we used on our porches since we had some left. Of course, we didn't have enough left....
So after a trip to town for more stain/paint and a latte', we came back and finished the floor. I didn't think I was going to like it at first,
I'm 58. A wife, a beekeeper, a gardener, and a crafter. I like to read; novels and old cookbooks with history in them are my favorites. I've been married for 21 years to a loving, hard-working man, who makes me laugh. We have a little dog that was found dumped in a park, and given to us. He is a boy, but has a girl name. Sorry Dixie. (could be uni-sex I suppose)
We have decided to take a journey together and build a new home on some land we purchased a few years ago. We are building the home ourselves. 2016 and we are finally living on the main level of our new home. I've created "The House on Hilltop Farm" blog, so I can record the house building journey. The Bee Lady from Hilltop Farm is about everything else going on in my life.
Nice to meet you.
So, I showed my niece my new (old) camper and she said, "I love the name coral belle. Coral reminds me of the ocean and the color of the camper reminds me of the color of the water in the ocean." (Out of the mouths of babes!)
