A Few Random Items & A Big GiveAway Announcement!

Hey everyone!  Hope you're having a great start to the week.  I have just a few random things to share, but first I wanted to let you know about this "SUPER" giveaway that my friend, Liz @ Savvy Seasons, is having.  If you don't know Liz, or haven't visited her blog, please don't wait a second longer.  She has a great flair with decorating, & best of all, she knows how to make inexpensive items look fabulous.  She will even share with you where she makes her purchases.  What are you waiting for?  Go now, like right now, okay?





Now on to a few things I wanted to share.  You know awhile back I asked for opinions on recycling systems.  Well, we decided to sacrifice a lower cabinet for this setup:


The Man got this installed in no time, and it's working very well.



Okay, not pretty, I know!  This was the original dining room chandy, but the previous owner had it hooked up really close to the ceiling.  And apparently it wasn't important to have matching globes.....LOL!

This one looks much better in our dining room.


So what did we do with this one?

We changed out the globes & hung it in the breakfast area.

It cleaned up very well.

When we first moved into this new home, I wasn't sure if I would have enough storage.  So, I decided to use the portable island from our previous kitchen.  I kind of liked the expanded island area, but found that I really didn't need it for storage.  It also made it kind of crowded when we added the new table.  Soooo.....

Presto, change-o......much nicer without it.

This is what our kitchen cabinets looked like before we moved in.  Very plain -- no hardware!

We found exactly what we wanted at IKEA & love how they look.  Best of all, we love that we can easily access the cupboards now!


Well, that's enough "show 'n tell" for now, but there will be more to come.  Hope you enjoyed your visit and please come again soon.
