Hello Blog Friends,
I am way over due for an update, but the problem is I have very little to update. We have done very little with the kitchen remodel. This is Ed's busy time of the year with his job and the traveling is pretty much non-stop through out the spring and summer months. We have been busy trying to get the vegetable garden in, get the pool opened up and doing general yard work, so any time he has at home is busy doing those things.
I myself have been enjoying my new found freedom. The little ones and I have been enjoying spending so much more time together doing the things that really matter...making memories!
I ordered a flush mount ceiling light for the kitchen sitting area back in January and that has finally come in...along with a some wall sconces that I ordered too. I'll take a couple pictures so you all can see how much better it looks then that gaping hole in the ceiling! ;-) The sconces are still in the box waiting for me to decide where I am going to use them. I know two will be going above the fireplace but the others I am unsure where I will be using them. I actually have way more sconces then I need, so I probably will be selling some of them. If anybody is interested let me know... ;-)
Oh, I have made some changes to the kitchen remodel too. Poor Ed!!! If he was smart he would get this kitchen finished so I could no longer make changes! ;-) There are two areas that are not finished that we built temporary pieces for. The island and bake center! My stove top sits in the island right now, but I have decided I would rather have it over against the wall where the bake center is suppose to go! I won't have a bake center, but not hyaving the stove top in the island will open that up and give me not only a bigger work area, but also more seating!
I've been doing a bit of tweaking and rearranging the last week and thought I would share a few photos with you all on what I have changed/moved!
I moved all my pewter from the red slanted cupboard to my antique cupboard in the dining room. This I like very much!
I had the hardest time decorating the red cupboard after I took all the pewter out. It is okay, but I am not thrilled with it. I'm sure I'll be doing some more tweaking with it!
Well that is about it folks. I gotta get scooting and take Ed to the airport. I hope you all enjoy your day. Suppose to be sunny and 84 here today. I know I'll be outside doing something later on when I get back from the airport and get everything done inside.
Thanks for stopping by!
