Keep In Touch #198

Hi, Friends,
How are you? I hope you are well.
My brother has been here so I haven't blogged much this week. 
I did share some updates on the quonset hut

He made more progress this past weekend and my brother was here to help clean up all the sheet rock. 

We got the propane tank and spirea moved away from the back door. Our view obstruction is gone. 

We just need the grass to grow in a little. 

Hopefully, the spirea will survive but neither one of us wanted to wait until December to move it. 
We couldn't wait to get it out of the way. The rainy season seems it's best chance of survival. 

I refinished the buffet from our dining room in town last week. We took it to the new house. 

A darling Eastlake dresser was moved down from our game room. 
It's a perfect place for linens and silverware. 
That is all for me. 
Now for the features. 

Debbie over at Debbie Dabble shares an update on her next door neighbor situation and her refreshed spring porch. 

We have a junky neighbor to the south of us at our East Texas house. 

These kolaches look amazing. I would love to try a home version like these by Cindy's Online Recipe Box. 

Thank you so much for linking up last week. 
Have a great week. 

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
