A fun place

Do you have a fun place in your kitchen or home where you like to merchandise? I don't have a whole lot of "display" space in my kitchen. But I have this little ledge on the end of my island in my kitchen and it's alot of fun to switch up and play with. I tend to overload it, lol. No simple clean lines for me. It's all about my goodies and how happy I get when I see them. Little odds and ends I find on my travels. Some are old and some are new! Just alot of fun! I love all things french country and cottage. Roosters, kitchen utencils topiaries and etc, etc etc! I could go on for days! :)
I would love to hear about your favorite little display places! Where is it? And what do you like to collect and/or display? Hope you have a great day!

New kitchen color!

Well, it's finally done. Or should I say, I'm finally taking a PICTURE of it! I decided to strip the border and paint in the kitchen. I first picked out a green and it was AWFUL. I have gone through many "painting jitters" but this color was just WRONG! It looked like pea soup puke! So safe I went! I decided on Sherwin Williams Blonde, which I really love. The foyer, kitchen and upstairs hallway is this color now and I really think it's a great color for these open spaces. Anywhere, here is a little before and after makeover! ;)

Summertime is almost over!

I can't believe that it's the end of August already! Where does the time go? We had a VERY fun and busy summer. We had family staying with us, a big fourth of July party, vacation and alot of FUN! It's winding down and slowing down. Getting ready for the new school year to start. I think I might be the only mom who loves NOT having the morning routine of school and wish summer was a bit longer.

We went to Saratoga racetrack last week and our boys had alot of fun. I didn't think they would like it there but they had alot of fun! Here is a picture of them in the "walking circle" where we went to watch one of my uncle's race horses walk into the race. And also another picture of them with Aunt Dana and their cousin Jeana they adore :)
