Farmhouse Kitchen Corner

Hi everyone!

I spent the hot and sultry weekend painting my kitchen. In all my years of having a kitchen, never have I had a white kitchen. Ever. I have had more color on my kitchen walls than Joseph's Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, lol!

Something pushed me toward white this time and I think I am digging it! 

This is a little corner in our eat in area. Mr. Bluebird made me the wainscot plate rack last fall - and there is one on the opposite wall as well. Love it for displaying an ever changing array of plates. 

I'll show you the rest of the kitchen soon. Pinky swear!

Thanks for stopping by,

Painting Again

Hi everyone!

Just a quick pop in to say "hey" and fill you in on what I'm doing between planting flowers and shower prep.

There's nothing like planning a party to give me a kick in the pants to freshen up my decor. Mr. Bluebird and I painted our living area and front entry in April, which has left the kitchen looking sad and neglected. I've come to the conclusion I burn way too many candles - there is an awful lot of soot on my walls. I think I may be giving them up. Boo hoo.

Anyway, painting is easy - but yikes! I just hate the preparation! I'm an instant gratification kind of girl.  Nonetheless, I've patched and primed and took down my over abundance of stuff.  I'm ready to put brush to the wall and get it done! 

Such a mess! But I know it will be worth it in the end. A freshly painted room is always a beautiful sight.

Lavender Everywhere!

Hi everyone!

I am finally off for the summer, so hopefully blogging will become a reality for me again. It's been hard to find the time lately.

 These first weeks are going to be busy ones. We are a hosting an outdoor engagement party and shower at our home for Baby Bluebird and her fiance in early July. I've been buying every lavender and purple annual I can get my hands on, since lavender is her wedding color. I've been  planting like crazy!

Can't miss an opportunity to share a picture of Palmer. He's so cute!

So much planting!

Had to add a bit of my favorite yellow. I think it looks good with all the purplr purples.

I'm also in craft mode for this party! These are just the tip of the supply iceberg!

As you can see, I'm over my head in party prep. We also have several big renos planned around here for the summer.  Hope to share a home decor post soon.
