My before pics of my kitchen and my sons accident....




This is the floor/back splash that I have picked out. It is slate and it is called Copper Rust. It is so much prettier in person. I love the way the cabinets in the pics are painted black inside and I may try this. The kitchen's posted are my dream kitchens. I know it is a sin to covet......I am definitely a sinner! I hope God can forgive me. I want one of these kitchens bad! I love the sink and I am looking for one like it. The floor in the kitchen with the ladder is the one I have picked out.







Now back to reality. The kitchen below is my kitchen. Now ,you can see why I need a new one. I think we will put in a island. Does anyone have any inexpensive suggestions for my cabinets? I won't be able to afford to replace them.








TheWallpaper is down now...I kind of still liked it but it's not for everyone.








I have my stove for sale. I haven't had any takers but it sure has brought out some schemers. I hate carpet in the kitchen. The carpet was here when I moved in. I never want to see it or this color again!














It has been so long since I have blogged that I am down right ashamed. I have been busy with many things. First of all, my son was involved in a accident. My son is 14 and he is all boy. He and 7 other friends were at a sleepover and they decided to have the 15 year old boy across the street pull them behind his truck on their sleds. We have had a ton of snow here. It was 11:00 at night. My son and his friend were being pulled onto a very dangerous road and when they made a turn they flew off of the sled. My son is OK but his friend hit a stop sign and had to be life lined to the hospital. He has a ruptured spleen and kidney damage. He was in the hospital for over a week. He is going to be fine now. They thought they would have to remove his spleen but they were able to stop the bleeding and the spleen will repair itself. I don't think that there is any punishment that I could give my son that would make him feel any worse than seeing his friend in this condition.






On a lighter note my kitchen renovation is under way. I have all the wallpaper down. It took a week straight. Whoever invented wallpaper must be a evil person............grr.. I am thinking of going with antique gold for the paint color.

Crowns and a couple other treasures!









I have been out looking for crowns. So far this is what I have come up with.... I think this could become a addiction. Something about putting the little crown in your hands is empowering.



Tootsie started this whole thing!!! Thanks Toots! Now, maybe my dreary Indiana winter will be a little brighter.
I think of Tootsie every time I walk by them.






I have a few other little treasures that I would like to share. My great Aunt Martha passed away last year. She was a spectacular lady. Here are a few items that were still in her home that were basically "trash". Her home is ready to be bulldozed because the state is taking possession of it to pay for the care she received in the nursing home. The home is basically worthless in their eyes. Well, these items do not look like trash to me! I love them and they remind me of her every day.


My great aunt had a only child named Louise . Louise tragically drowned at age 30. The decanters belonged to her. I found them behind a chair forgotten and moldy.
I am the most sentimental person that you will ever find. I will not put anything into my house that doesn't have a meaning of some kind. It may not be pretty to some but it means something to me or my family.
I think the things in ones home should be what YOU love. I think more is more and almost anything can be turned into a treasure! I loved Gollum's new decorating rules for 2009! If you haven't read them yet you need to.-
I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

Let's get this year started!

Tonight, I am breathing a sigh of relief. I just finished putting the Christmas away. It took me 12 hours. Every year I swear I will never put all of that up again.....I lie!
I am looking forward to a great new year! I am excited to start renovating my kitchen. I will have to post some before and after pics. I am rather embarrassed to let anyone take a peek at this point. I need your help. Does anyone have any color suggestions or photos of a neat kitchen? I feel a little overwhelmed by the process and have a tight budget to work with. I am looking at tiles for the floor and possibly Granite tiles for the counter top. My house was built in 1864 and I want to keep that in account. I only have 265 square feet to work with. I have waited 8 years to start this project and I am so excited!!! I do not have a dishwasher and when I get one I am having a frickin dishwasher housewarming party!!!! Woo Hoo!
