IMAG0088 1
Not much stitching going on these days.  I did find a few minutes to work a little on this ornie.  I hope to get an evening this week to sit and stitch the night away.

IMAG0068  To creamy white cabinets and silver hardware…
A freshly painted backsplash and beautiful new countertop!  We’re still working on painting the lower cabinets and a few other little adjustments, but it will be done in a day or two. 

Throughout this whole kitchen facelift, I only went 3 days without a kitchen sink and running water. 
Sorry for the blurry pic above.  I was having trouble with the camera on my phone.
As if having the kitchen tore apart wasn’t enough, my oldest daughter chose the same time to move into her new home.
Dottie has been rather upset with her *sister* moving out and the chaos around our house these past couple of weeks.

Thanks for visiting me today! 


  1. Congrats on you new kitchen and your daughter moving out (supposedly a good sign, yes?).

  2. It's nice to have a new kitchen facelift, isn't it? I need to paint my cabinets. They look terrible.

  3. I wish I could get my kitchen done....but then again I have our hallway, front room, bathroom and our bedroom to do as yet. Its a bittersweet moment when your kids move out to their own property, nice to see them growing up but sad when they flee the nest.

  4. Oh goodness Pam~ My own kitchen has been going through some changes as well and we still have a way to go. Isn't it great though when you're all done and can stand back and appreciate the difference? I just have a hard time figuring what the next step is more often than not. Even with the mess and chaos though, I enjoy it all.

  5. Your kitchen makeover looks so good

  6. Your ornie is so cute and your kitchen is looking good. Hopefully you'll be able to enjoy the whole thing soon! Dottie does look a little out of sorts, poor Dottie!

  7. Look at your dog wanting to help. LOL. So happy for you with your kitchen. It's a nice feeling, right?

    Hey, I saw your comment on the Santa village sal and wanted the thank you for sharing the info on where to buy.

  8. Pretty stitching!

    Your "new" kitchen looks wonderful!
