Well - its been a while.  I feel like I have been on the run lately and not much down time.  Good news to report - cabinets are in, tile is down and hopefully we will be in very soon!!!   The cabinets are by Marsh Furniture.  I wish they sold directly because the actual selection of cabinets does not have sufficient drawer space in the kitchen! I'm short and i don't need the cabinets 9' high... It'd be nice to have a cabinet with 4 drawers but we will be alright.  I have some exciting changes I can't wait to make in order to bring life to this kitchen!!

Update!!! Dry wall complete! Doors in! Trim and Aprons in!!! Flooring should be completed this week... I will have more pictures to update.  Family life has been a bit busy. With swim lessons, work, more work and just simply being exhausted - I haven't posted like I would like. I have however discovered a fun website which I will be posting some of my finds soon. Stay tuned...

Great way to start the weekend!  One of the reasons I decided to do this blog is because, like so many other people - I really do enjoy expressing my creativity! What better way than to openly share my ideas to the world and hope that others get inspired to pass it along.  Over the years I've found that I would do things in my home and then other people would leave and go back and try to replicate my ideas. I guess imitation is supposed to be flattering but it is not when people don't give you a compliment. Now granted, this is just my opinion and perhaps others will not feel the same.  My tip to share would be, if you like something that you see another person has put hard work and effort into doing, do not be afraid to compliment them first, then ask how they did what they did.  As I continue with this blog, I may not share everything I do in my home - one I'm not sure that I will have the time to do such but also because some things are left to be unique...

In any event, I picked up these pretty cool handmade baskets. I can remember whether I shared them in a previous blog but I wanted to share them [again] because I am so excited with what I plan on doing with them!!! I was eyeing them across the lawn and my mom scooped them up for me.  She wouldn't tell me how much she paid for them (a true flea marketer never divulges their bargained price to another).  When I priced them the guy wanted $20 for the bigger one and $15 for the smaller... Something tells me she got them both for $25.  If so, that would be a great steal!  They are handcrafted, 100% cedar so those bad boys are here to stay for a little while...

Doing the usual drive by and what to my surprise but our house is now our official color!! We chose Virtual Taupe, brought to us by Sherwin Williams.  I'm not sure if I'm crazy about the front door color of red but I suppose that is something we can change once we move in. I missed having my previous red door but I think it will be okay to let it go... Time for us to enter a new era of things, that including a different front door color.  I have already imagined - nice new shutters (yes, our house doesn't come with shutters but I think they will give the exterior some character), new front and garage doors. Those upgrades are a little ways out. Let's just focus on getting into the house first!

The back of the house looks great!!! We've got all the window measurements down so now it is time to start shopping for window treatments.  With 30+ windows to get window coverings for I'm trying to pace myself and get quality treatments.  I'm welcoming suggestions!!!

Our house is on its way to the finish... Well at least on the outside and utility-wise. They finished up this week on the siding and I imagine they will begin insulation and closing up walls in the next week. With closing in less than 2 months, we will be in the homestretch real soon!!!
