Project Gallery Is Complete

Today I’m just a wee excited to share a page on the blog that has been in the works FOREVER….the Project Gallery!

If you recall last year around this time I had a huge issue with my server and lost a few weeks of work.  Normally it wouldn’t be too big of a deal but in this case it was.  I had just completed my project gallery which took me about oh….6 months to complete.
Poof Gone.
Little by little (and I mean little) I have been working on it AGAIN in my spare time and am so thrilled to say it is pretty much DONE!!! WOO HOO

This is an easy way for my readers to see all of my work in one place,sorted by category.  Wait,I should correct that, almost all of it, I still need to add a few more posts.

 I leave you with the Christmas category since I’m a wee excited for the upcoming holidays.  To see the rest of the gallery just click on “Project Gallery” at the top of my page, right below the header or simply click HERE.

~Thanks so much for stopping in and for being patient~


Fabulous Treats & Decor for Halloween

Thank you to everyone who linked up to Inspire Me Monday, I have rounded up some fabulous Halloween treats and decor for you to enjoy.

Quickly, I wanted to apologize for being so absent lately, I had all these great craft ideas I wanted to create this week but as you know life happens.  My back has been out which means lots of chiropractor appointments for me and our youngest broke his wrist.  Meanwhile while I write this post our dog is limping, I think we have some bone issues in this family.  Here is to happy recoveries for everyone!

Fabulous Room Makeovers

 Hi Friends and happy weekend!  We are going to reach the triple digits and with lots of soccer and my back being out I have to say I’m dreading it just a little.  I am a little envious of those who were able to dust off their fall boots to enjoy the cooler temps, in time, right? (fingers crossed)

So since it feels like Summer I am sharing some bright and beautiful room makeovers from Inspire Me Monday that are sure to knock your socks off, enjoy!

Help deciding on a backsplash over the stove

We are finally almost done with the kitchen remodel.  The only thing left is to pick out the backsplash over the stove and install the pot filler.  This particular part of the backsplash had to be removed because the mold had crept up from behind the stove.  Everywhere else in the kitchen the granite butted up to the stone so it wasn’t an issue.

I figured since everyone was such a huge help on my Facebook page when I needed suggestions painting over the kitchen island I thought I would ask for a little more advice.    Since our floors and backsplash were saved, the hardest part about redoing this kitchen is trying to make everything look cohesive and tie the new in with the old.

So here is what we are toying with:

Clear or Pearlescent Glass backsplash
Glass backsplash with grey’s and tans
A design or mosiac
Basket weave

This is one of is from Sonoma Tile Makers with the Pearlescent glass backsplash, I just don’t know how it would look with the travertine.
