A Little Of This, A Little of That....

Hi everyone, it's been too long since my last post but we've been deep into the kitchen project. The powder room is also moving along but a bit slower. It's difficult to live without a kitchen so that has taken priority. It's about 3/4 done, I can't wait to show it to you all!


That said, I have a few things I wanted to share with you today....

You may have noticed the link in my sidebar for Bags Of Love. They are a wonderful company to work with, it's a great place to go for some special gifts. The canvas wall hanging of my daughter was a gift from them and I couldn't be happier with it. I just sent them my photo and they did the rest.

I'm still deciding where to hang it. She wants it in her room but I want to be able to see it all the time. We'll see who wins that one......

I also like to share my good Etsy experiences and Peppercorns 2 was no exception. I purchased the marquee letters you see on top of the mirror. The shipping was fast and I would certainly go back to the store again. Excellent service.


Now on to a project from Jamie at Something To Do . Look at this hutch they made from mostly scrap pieces! It's incredible and just goes to show what beautiful things can be created with a little bit of imagination and a few tools as well. You can go over to her blog for the before pictures and the story of this sweet hutch.




I'll keep you posted on the kitchen. So far the cabinets are painted, the walls are almost done and we'll be sanding the floor after Thanksgiving. I'm so excited to get to that part!


My one year blogging anniversary was this month. I can't believe an entire year has gone by, surprisingly (or not if you ask my family) I've had a lot to say. I want to thank you all for coming here and reading my ramblings. I'm so glad to have found the blogging community, one filled with creative and amazing people. I'm awed every day by the talented people here.


Have a Happy Thanksgiving. May you have much to be thankful for, a belly full of warm food and people to share it with.
