A+ Appliances

Someday – someday in the future Jay bird and I will go all out on appliances and get some shhhweeett viking action going on with a sub zero fridge to finish things out. And a mini fridge below the counter, with a wine cooling station.

Well, in my dreams, that’s happening anyway and y’all if you can dream it, you can do it. That’s what I’m telling myself!! ;)

But since $10k is not even close to…

Finishing Touches

Our kitchen had a pretty big day last Friday. Now, I’m practically weeping as I type this, because it’s actually still not done, but we did finally get a trip out here from the guys at Home Depot, to keep things moving along. Das es good.

As I’ve said before, once we’ve got the whole shebang done and over with, we’ll do a full review of our experiences. For now though, I thought I’d offer a…

At Your Service

Sometimes I get it in my head that I need something so badly, that it becomes like, an unhealthy obsession. Butler Pantry’s are one of those things. I think it’s because I’m under the sad illusion that these pantry’s come with said Butler, but regardless, how classy is it to say at your dinner party – Dear, could you go get our chilled wine and caviar from the Butler’s Pantry. Yeah, you’re right.…

Lamp Looker

If I had to break down the numbers on the doors we use most often in this abode it would be:

Front Door: 3%
Kitchen Door: 12%
Side Door: Whatevers left percent, aka A LOT.

We’ve been working to trouble shoot that little area of ours, things like adding our armoire for storage and, well I guess that’s pretty much all we’ve done to date :D He he, got over ambitious there for a second thinking we…

Flor Me

Perhaps it’s the fact that there is finally a fall chill in the air down in the land of the pines, but I’m craving cozy these days. A blanket, some tea, a crackling fireplace. Ahhh, yes. Fall.

So every time I walk through our living room, with my visions of sugar plums above said fall like items dancing through my head, I kinda have a whomp whomp moment because cozy just ain’t whats going on in…

Light Up My Life

Light Up My Life

Some details on an old house make me weak in the knees, in the best way possible. Our cute little door knobs. LURVE. Ignore the chipped paint – we still need to paint 90% of the trim in this house – mmmm – procrastinating on that one, if you can’t tell ;)

Brass Knob Hardware

Solid wood doors, another show stopper. Love, love, love.

That being said, one of the things on old homes that you start to realize kinda…

Dirty Diaper Duty

Before I got pregnant, I always thought that I’d cloth diaper my babes. We try to be a little greenie household, from our one car policy to our urban living footprint, we’ve always had mother earth as part of our equation when we make our big decisions in life.

But y’all, maybe it’s the fact that I am still firmly planted in my first trimester and I have all sorts of aversions, but cloth…
