The Quest

Due to the ever efficient airlines that fly us around these days, I had a chance to finish not one, but two books that I took on the mini-break with me. One of them is the Fenn illustrated "The Quest..." I mentioned in one of the previous posts. The parallels between us and the Shackelton's are fascinating, to say the least. In addition, it is a great educational tool for anyone involved with antiques in any capacity - descriptions of styles, how to spot a fake, how to restore furniture, etc. Really, really good. I highly recommend it.

We found the "missing" house

Thanks to one of our readers, Robert, who identified the house on South Mountain Avenue.

I almost crashed into a tree while looking at it and can't believe I never noticed it before. It was right there. I mean, it looks exactly the same as in this photo. Right?

The funny thing is that I drive by the house almost daily. Which goes to show you just how many things go unnoticed in our lives...

Award from Montclair Historic Preservation Commission

Our lovely porch restoration has won an award from the Montclair Historic Preservation Commission for Brick and Mortar Preservation project in the residential category.

We are very honored. Here is the story in Baristanet.

And here is the photo of the porch.

The awards ceremony is on Thursday, November 19. We hope to see you all there.

Kids Bath: Electrical - DONE

Electrical - DONE, TOO! Yay!

However, he opened a hole in the wall in the wrong place above the mirror, so now that needs to be patched up tomorrow. That means an extra day tacked on. We really wanted it to be finished tomorrow. We are already 4 days over schedule. Ugh.

I. Need. This. Job. To. End.
