Well hello blogland, I know I have been gone for a while, So much has happened in the past few months ( I will get to that later). I have had a lot of issues with blogger and not being able to leave comments some times. So to all that I have visited and not left a comment I did try .
Now on to few new finds. About two months ago I discovered an auction house not too far from where I live. Well it was my first time so I dragged the hubby with me, The moment we walked in this caught my eye.

Will travel for Bunnies.....
I have aways been crazy about this painting. So imagine when I came across it on craigslist. I was so thrilled, I mean the size was geat, the frame would work and best of all it was a great price. The only problem, It was in Austin Tx, I live in Houston. Was I going to let that stop me no way. I contacted the very sweet woman that was selling it and she agreed to hold it for me. It took me two weeks, Then one weekend my wonderful hubby and I went and here they are (bunnies). I love it so much and It's perfect in the dining room. See the cabbage plates, well the bunnies just happen to be eating a leaf of cabbage. Coincidence I think not.

This was a little table I happen to find one day when I was not looking for anything, but the minute I saw it I knew I had to have it . I walked away at first but who are we kidding I knew it was comming home with me, so what If I had no clue where it was going. I thought to myself I will find the perfect spot and I did for now. I even thought maybe I will paint it but I an double minded for now.
For anyone that's wondering yes solid wood.
Have a great weekend of shopping you guys.

Well today I thought I would share a little Fall / Thanksgiving decor with you guys.Here is my buffet in the dining room with his and her turkeys I love them. I also brought in some white and silver. Then we move over to my formal living room where I added some more color. Can you tell where? The pillows I found the check one in a little antique shop. I recently discovered. The other two I had made. They match the sette in my family room. I think they look great, taking color from one room to another.
THANKSGIVING BUFFET....AND MORE.
Here is a full shot of my buffet. I am on the look out for larger Lamps Maybe for Christmas.
Here we are in the formal Living room with all the fall colors. ( still looking for a perfect fabric for my little french chair, I was thinking leopard print) we'll see.
The other side of the room can you spot my newest find? The little chest. ( more to come on that soon).
Thanks for stopping by and all of you have a HAPPY THANKSGIVING.

Well hello blogland, It ' s seems I have been away forever. The truth is we have been so busy with school opening and running here and there, I just had no time for anything extra. Don't get me wrong I still have a ton of projects going on ( kitchen , table , chairs , etc) but no time . The kitchen is coming along, I did not want to rush it because, I wanted a $3,000 venthood without the $3,000. So anyway I am almost there and once I am done I don't want to look back and have any ( I should have done it different or I don't like that.) Just a peek.

New Chairs .....Well I saw these and could not pass them up. The problem being where to put them. I am one of those people that firmly believe if you love it take it home and it will find a place. So I tried it every where and this is where they ended up for now.( wink wink). They are in perfect condition.not a stain or scratch. All wood and I love the cane. As you see all my stuff from the kitchen is in my dining room. (kitchen still being worked on.)

Ok, well remember when I found a collection of the Johnson brothers OLD BRITIAN CASTLES. It had just the creamer And I just loved it so, I started looking around and was able to find a the teapot (love love love) . My really really really wonderful husband ordered it for me. Now I am on the lookout for the sugar bowl.This basket of dishes was purchesed at a garage sale for $20 I just loved the red and white . The first time I saw it I was in love but because I only collected blue and white I passed by, The next year however It came home with me . I guess it was ment for me.

Any idea what these are ?Ok , I have been out of the loop for a while , the truth is kids are home and there is so much to do. Don't get me wrong I still find time for shopping as you can see and I have found some real treasures.Oh and I am still working on my kitchen . I finally came up with a plan for a some of my upper cabinets. I drew it out and will have the carpenter over next week or the following week to get started, meanwhile I am still working on my youngest room. I know some of you are thinking (IS SHE EVER GOING TO BE FINISHED) well the problem is I start with one thing and end up on something else.( HUBBY DOES NOT LIKE IT ONE BIT) Oh well.

Ok . It's been a while but my kitchen is still a work in progress. Here I have relocated the microwave to under the counter and next to my table. Under the microwave will be a larger basket that will be used for something not sure what yet I hope to have this finished soon. We ran into some other issues like a leak that ruined my flooring so I will have to have it all replaced.
Here is the full picture as you can see still no backsplash.
I love love my new cooktop and oven I am so happy we went with Bosch.
My beautiful island trying to decided which knobs I like better.
remove and rebuild upper cabinets over cooktop to fit a 36 inch hood,install backsplash, paint cabinets, Give everything a good cleaning. Cut back on all the things on the counter tops that hiding the missing backsplash.
