Good Morning Sweet Friends,
Hope everything is well with you
and yours, and hope that you are
enjoying your summer, as it sure
is fading fast, can't believe Thurs-
day will be August 1st already.......
Wow! Where did the time go......
All is well here still........we are waiting to see if Dee
and Jerry's house will sell, they are having an open
house on Saturday, so will see what happens.
That is how we sold our house so quickly when we
moved here years ago from Lauderdale. It was a
bad time to sell, so they said, so I told our realtor
who was a friend as well, that if you get someone
thru this house it will sell, cause I know what the
rest of the houses in the neighborhood look like,
and they are in bad needed of updating and
renovating, and we had done a lot of work in
ours. so he quickly had an open house and the
first couple who came thru bought it, and paid
full asking price, because the 2nd couple who
came also wanted it.................so Open Houses
are a good thing, as Martha would say!
Last Friday I decided to do something I have
been wanting to do for months, but either I had
the time and no energy or creativity, or I had
the creativity or energy and no time. lol
So finally, I started the project on Friday and
pretty much finished it, but have just been
doing some tweaking here and there since.
I redecorated my counter tops with a whole
new look and hubby and I both really like it.
A much cleaner fresher look, and seems
like we have more space on the counter
tops, and it only cost me $13.00 for a new
glass canister set that we got months back,
think I might have told you about it but didn't
show it to you I don't think....well, the rest of
the story will be in pictures mostly...................
So come on in................

Remember you can click on any picture and it should enlarge
We will start at the counter top to the left -
This is the before pic
This is the before pic
Decided I didn't want to use my cup rack,
so decided to just display them on a plate.
Had this lil vase with flowers on the sink edge
so decided they would look nice in the middle
of the cups instead.
only thing that changed here is the towel and rug.
I had a colorful striped rug, and will probably put
it back, cause I imagine this white one is gonna
be a pain, but the other one needed washing
anyway, so figured now was a good time.
No Before Picture of the stove, forgot!
So these are all After pictures
This is by the coffee pot
If you were going in a clockwise direction next would
be our table and chairs, but I am leaving that
for another post.........cause I did some playing
with the table............lol
Next is the other side of the kitchen..............
the canister set has been here since I got it a few months
ago, but was waiting to move things around so I could
put it where it is now.
Our pantry is on the left and that is an ironing board, chair and
ladder all made into one............on the right hand side.
There will be a white towel hanging on the oven soon.
Now I have a question since you have seen my kitchen
I would like to paint my stove hood so that it would make
a statement, but can't decide what color to paint it........
This is a pretty good representation of the colors
in my wallpaper.......so what color would you
pick for the stove hood???
It really was morning when I started this!!
Sorry this is so long, but many times when I see
pictures of someones room, you can't see a lot
of the detail even when you blow the pictures up
so I wanted to include that, cause if you are like
me that is a lil disappointing.................and it
even happens with magazines too. I have also
been downloading pics in between other things
I was doing today too................
Anyway, hope you enjoyed the tour........
will post pictures of the table area sometime
soon, was thinking tomorrow but probably
not, since I will be babysitting our lil darling!!
So probably next week........
