Still waiting....



Good morning.....well we are still waiting for our cupboard doors....think John is wishing he had just done them himself at this point....its the only thing he didn't do and they are taking FOREVER!!!!!

So while I wait I thought I would show you a little more of the kitchen....


my plate rack has taken on a whole new look....I found the old license
plate in the shed and thought it would add a touch of the industrial feel I so love....what do you think...keep or put it back in the shed?


Anyway have a great week,with any luck I will be back soon with the rest of the kitchen to show you.....never been good at waiting! x0

shelves are up and my "french mist" floor has been layed.....

Of course none of this would have happened if I wasn't married to the most wonderful ,hardworking,talented man on earth....THANK YOU JOHN.....







I am so thrilled with how it turned out.....and I am dying to show you the "other" side of the kitchen......but the new cupboard doors are not quite finished.....so please come back next week and I will show you the rest of the kitchen including the beautiful countertop John made...from antique lumber !

Looking back....moving forward...

Hello and Happy New Year....where does the time go....thought I would take a look back at 2010....from a decor point of view that is....

from the new look I tried to give our bedroom,inspired of course by Jeanne D'arc....
to the complete overhall of our sunroom....which wasn't too bad at all..quick and quite painless.....



think it will always be my favorite room!!!





Then of course we re-did Meg's room and our tiny bathroom....



oh what a mess that was.....and now we are about half way through the biggest project we have ever done...the kitchen......going to post some demo photos this week, best brace yourself for those!!! Till then all the best to you my wonderful albeit far away friends ! x0x0


















Followers Thank you all so much,your comments just make my day!
