After a trip to Chicago - I returned home to
I am so excited !! Don't have electricity in there yet so the opener doesn't work ...but I am thrilled. I have to use the back door for my only entrance right now and it has become increasingly depressing.....the garden tools were bad enough - but add shovels and car tires !!

Tires and shovels and rakes - Oh My!

There was freezing rain while I was away so everything is covered with a sheet of ice....very scary.

My back steps looking from the lower level

This is where recycles and trash pile up. When I had to have snow tires put on the car - this is where my regular tires had to go....there or under the Christmas Tree.

This is what greeted me upon you understand why I was so determined to get a garage

What a great project to have to start off the new year.

A Clean Slate

I may even get to make it pretty....
imagine that .


  1. Happy Garage!! :D

    I can't wait to see you make your back door area pretty.

  2. Way to go girl! I was bummed thinking that your Bentley would be spending the whole winter in the Snow.

    Keep up the good work. Barb will be there in person soon, I hope.


  3. That's great, Mary. I know you and your car will be glad to be out of the winter weather. :-)

  4. Interesting blog here, enjoyed browsing and watching your progress! Congrats on the garage.

  5. Yippee! The garage is done! I am so excited for you! It looks a lot warmer inside than it does outside for your car! I can't wait to see even more progress :) You don't know how much I look forward to your posts! Every one of them is so great! Thank you!

  6. Ooooh...But I have gotta say, that church looks so beautiful in the snow. I love it!

    Happy ae going to LOVE it!!

  7. You really must have a "Garage" party, garage band and all. Never underestimate a garage.
    New meaning to the "church" lady and her car that was only driven to church.


This is a huge project - your interest in St. Marys keeps me energized and I love hearing from you
