Things are getting packed up around here!

 Hi Everyone!  Hope everyone is having a wonderful day!  It is sunny and 70 degrees here in Stallings, NC.  I ate my lunch out on the patio!  I have purple hyacinths on my picnic table and the smell was heavenly!

I have been packing up a storm.  There is about 5 weeks until the closing and move.  The living room is almost all done.  The movers are not going to love me with my book collection-so heavy!  It is looking rather bare around here.  I even organized the garage about 80% of the space.  I have been looking on Pinterest for ideas for the kitchen renovation.  All the next pictures are from Pinterest (want to give them the credit).  Here are some of my ideas!

I would love to have white subway tiles with this grid done under this wonderful wood hood/vent.

I love this open shelf under the upper cabinets

The cabinets will be white shaker.  I love these handles also!

I have this in my house now and love it!
So that is what I have been up to lately.  I love to dream about how the house is going to look when it is all done!  It will take a while because the contractor can't start the kitchen area until mid-summer but it will look lovely for the Fall and the holidays!  
Everyone have a lovely day!


White Subway Tile is what I would love.  So clean.
I would love a pantry like this.

This farmhouse sink caught my eye.  Simple but wonderful!

The island below is actually not for the kitchen but the Butler's Pantry area.  I will use it to craft, fold laundry, etc.

I would love this pullout for all my baking sheets and pizza stones


  1. I love all the kitchen ideas! The pantry is great.

  2. Great kitchen ideas! We are in the middle of our reno of the kitchen, what a dusty mess!

  3. These are all impressive ideas. Wow!


Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.

Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!

Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
