Kitchen Refreshed

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010

My friends, it took me a week, but I finished painting over my yellow kitchen !  You know how you just want something new after a few years of the same old look?  That was the story of our kitchen.  Hub and I just decided last fall that we’d grown tired of the butternut yellow on the island and walls.  I debated whether or not to do it because I did like the previous color, but eventually we just decided to go ahead and make the change. 

I was inspired to transform the space into a palette that would compliment the adjoining family and dining room, so we painted the walls, and I painted the island, a gray green color by Benjamin Moore called ‘Camouflage’.  I also replaced the valance and changed up the accessories. 

Welcome to our kitchen, refreshed.  Come on in and have a look around !

I Was Smiling, Until . . .

Saturday, February 13th, 2010

There was a break in the rain and the sun was shining today.  I went out into the garden and it had that smell.  You know the one.  Moist dirt after a fresh rain – waiting to be tilled and filled with spring seedlings.

I spotted this:

hydrangea bud

And this:

rosebud

In February  !

And I smiled.

Then I looked down.
