Tour de Dream House: Kitchen

Got your walking shoes back on?
Ready to go back through Cristi (of Hiya Papaya) and Jeff's beautiful home?
You might want to have a small towel ready to wipe the drool off your chin after taking the kitchen tour.
Hold on to your hats, here we go...

I mean, come on... seriously? Is that not the most beautiful kitchen ever?
I think my favorite thing about it is the recycled glass counter top. How refreshing to see something other than granite!? (click here for counter top source)
Another favorite of mine has to be the flooring. Reclaimed barn wood. Love it.

one step at a time

As stated in my last post, a family room makeover is currently in progress at a slow rate of
ONE step at a time.
What have I done so far?
Well, I got a lamp. Yep. That's it. But it has made a HUGE difference in the room!
Sometimes it only takes a change or two in a room to make a drastic difference.

My mom also gave me this cute little notebook.
I love the pattern and colors (since they match the fam room) so I put it out on display under the lamp next to my starfish set...

Slowly but surely, I will have the large wall in the room done next...
I just have this little habit called procrastination when it comes to the "planning" part. 
I am SO indecisive because I have sooo many ideas, and instead of going with one, I procrastinate. 
Sound familiar or is it just me? 

I'm thinking I should put this poster I made on the wall. 
Maybe it will help speed things up.


Sorry about that!

Somehow a VERY old post from like 2 years ago was just posted today titled "Happy Fall!"...
not sure how in the world that happened but it kind of made me laugh when I saw it!! 

Just to make it clear: I'm not wishing you all a "happy fall" quite yet.
It is definitely still summer and I'm not even close to thinking about fall yet! 

Stay tuned for another post later tonight! And I promise it won't be about Spring or Winter ; )


Project Family Room

In the process of making over my family room... 
trying to make a huge change with little change (from the wallet).

Some ideas to get me going:

I'd like to take a little bit from each of these photos, mix em' together and see what I come up with!

I'll update as soon as it's finished!

color me mine

What is it about fresh flowers that makes us feel so ... well, fresh? 

I just love these dreamy colorful arrangements. I want them all in my home. Every single one of them.

Trip to the flower mart on Saturday anyone?


kitchen envy

In the process (the planning stage) of giving our kitchen a little face lift... 

can I please just snap my fingers and instantly have one of these?

Are these not the most beautiful kitchens ever?  I love the vintage style kitchens.
