{ A Thought }

I came in from my walk this morning to see a certain word on my chalkboard highlighted by the morning sun.
It was a good reminder of where my focus should be in this crazy world of distractions.

{ so colorful, I love them! }

I thought these prints turned out so cute framed and matted that I just had to share.  
I painted the frames cottage white and mounted the prints on fabric.  
The idea came from the whatever blog.  
Check out her blog, it is really fun!

{ New Dining Hutch }

I have been searching on Craiglist for dining hutch for quite a while.
I just couldn't find one that I liked for the right price, but I wasn't in a hurry.
Well, on Saturday I went garage saleing with a friend.
I didn't really need anything & in an effort not to buy anything, I didn't bring any money.
Yep, you heard me right...no money.
And it was a good thing I didn't have any cash because that is when you find the perfect thing, right?

Luckily, I have a wonderful friend who loaned me the $75 so I could bring this baby home with me.


I love the detail on the doors & the top of the cabinet.
She's going to get stained {I guess she's a girl} a little bit darker cuz the color is a bit too orangey-yellow for me.

I filled it with all of the white dishes I had stashed in my kitchen.
Did you know I have a thing for white dishes?
My every day dishes are white, too.
Bonus...I have more room in my kitchen cupboards now!

So, what do you think?
