I enjoy many hobbies too many sometimes. I raise/breed labradoodles, I build log and slab furniture, I play with shabby chic reclamation projects and have a fetish for old doors when I am building. I make handmade soap and sell it (cold processed soap superfatted with the wonderful butters and oils- I use only natural, plant based colorants.) I grow a vegetable garden though it's not my idea of a good time we like to eat. I live in a turn of the century, mission style bungalow on the river. The house retains all of it's original charm with black walnut built ins etc. I did redo the kitchen a few years ago- and replaced the bathroom - refurbished both the big front porch and the back screen porch. I am glad I did all that work when I was younger. I don't think I could do it now. ha! I have lots of outdoor projects that I would like to build this year- a rustic pergola is high on my to do list. I am a mother of three grown daughters- but I am not a grandmother. ;) I have a facebook page that shows my wood work and you are welcome to visit there- riverhouse rustics (Freeport, Pa )
Favorite area of home improvement:
I dabble in lots of things and have renovated/restored my kitchen, bathroom and front and back porches. I need to refinish my hardwood floors (whole house). I am hoping to tackle that this summer.
