A few items...

I did a trade with Debbie from the flea market and this is what I got!  A spoon necklace with a "J" that she made.  She hammers the spoon out flat and then stamps the letter...so cute! 

While going though my piles of stuff around the house, I found this mini album that I made years and years ago.  I passed it down to my sister-in-law that has two little guys for her to use.  The colors reminded me of her and her dudes.

 Okay...down to business. 
My birthday is in a couple of weeks and all I want is my ugly oak {builder's grade} kitchen cabinets to be painted.  They are just worn out and have water stains on them, not pretty!  I have been checking out on Pinterest all of the amazing kitchens and I keep coming back to white cabinets. They are timeless!  I can't decide if I want it glazed also.  My husband refuses to paint {he'd rather chew broken glass he always says to me} and so he said to hire someone.  I wish I felt confident enough to do it myself...
I love this kitchen!  I already have the beadboard backsplash.

 I found this picture on Pinterest also that I just adore!  What a great idea to paint the pantry door a color and that helps you not to have to commit to a wall color that bold.  It is subtle, yet striking.

Wish me luck!
Have a wonderful day!


  1. Love the litchen inspiration--think I am painting my pantry door today, going to add some chalkboard paint to the top panel.

  2. I totally LOVE that neclace! have a happy week!

  3. That door is brilliant!! love the color too!! What a great idea...bead board backsplash makes me drool.

  4. I am so glad that you handed it down to me! I am jealous that you are getting a white kitchen. One day we would love to have one also!
