dream kitchen

it's official :) 
we have our dream kitchen...

it was a weekend of tile...I loved it,
setting tile and grouting is a little like frosting a cake 

it was a bit of work, but worth it...

it may be another weekend until the drawer pulls
and knobs are installed...but here's a look:



I successfully installed ONE drawer pull,
it's not so easy...soooo I think I will wait for the boss to finish it off :) 

as seen below the knob installation didn't quite work out...
honey, help :( 

the island is my favorite, there are tons of cool markings 
in the granite...love this slab :) 

soooo, after everything was cleaned up and put away 
there was a little more grout to get done....
I improvised and used a cake spatula and butter knife since hubby had
already stored away the putty knife/tile stuff :) hey, it worked

now I need to take out the real camera and take a decent pic of my dream kitchen :)

I always tell the students we have 
to agree on some basics in society, like grammar, it's so important! 
They really do.

target love


does it seem to you that usually sometimes 
you walk the isles of target and you 
are just in love with so many things??????

don't mind the unfinished/doorless cabinets...still 
working on the kitchen remodel...but this rug, yikes...love it :) 
similar here and here online


wowzers....I spied this mirror and it had my name on it
hahaha (well, it really said "hey, take me home") 
online here


ok, so this amazing vintage typewriter was not a target find
but it's a recent treasure from a cottage store nearby
{one of those shops we finally popped into and fell in love} 

ahhhhh target, you're the best
