20/20 Project -- week two

Given that spring seems to be coming and going here on the Riviera, I've decided to move inside for this week's project. That and the fact that the mold in our pantry is really getting to me. Maybe it's just me, but it doesn't seem like a good idea to have fungus growing on the walls in the room where we keep our food.

Thus, decision made. Week Two house project:

The pantry. Let's get a close up of that...

Gross. Ahhh...the joys of living in a 400 year old house. Today I took everything out of the room and fumigated with a potent chemical spray called Anti-Muffa (translation: anti-mold. I hope the marketing genius who came up with that brand name made a bundle). Tomorrow I'll start with another appropriately named product called pittura (translation: paint).

This week's knitting project, not accurately named by me, because it is this hat from Lois's blog - which is quite obviously crocheted. By the way, when you go to Lois's blog, check out her bread recipes. I highly recommend the Sweet and Light Whole Wheat. It's the only one I've tried so far, it's delicious.

Please excuse the complete and utter lack of pizazz in this post...I think those potent chemicals are getting to me...perhaps more than the mold was.


  1. Hi,

    You have so much energy to take on so many tasks!

    Thank you for the kind words about my blog. You are a sweet lady.

    I look forward to seeing pictures of the hat you are making!

    Very best,

  2. We've had mold issues, too.
    Coming here from Colorado, it was kind of a shock.
    But we don't have the excuse of living in a 400 year old house! Wow!
