Just Hanging Around

If you are looking for new pendants to jazz up your space, look no further.

These babies are on sale for $59.00-$69.00 here

Too bad I already have these for the new place.  What cabinet hardware would you use to match these?

A Different Kind of Revival

Please bear with me.  I know I have neglected this blog, but there were a few other details in my life that needed addressing.

Of note:  We got the house!  I may just have to bore you with lots of inspirational photos and renovation before and afters from here on out.  The gut project starts May 1st.  Let the planning begin!

Let's start with the kitchen.  White Carrera marble counters, white farm sink, stainless steel appliances, grey painted cabinets.......

Minus the kitchen island, because our space is not that big.  Dinner parties are a big priority so we are foregoing the island for a large farm table.  Thoughts on this?

Next stop, bathroom.  I'd love suggestions and photos/links.

Woulda Coulda Shoulda........

Dearest Blog could you let this get away for a mere $20.49???  Did you not read Jenny's post last month?  Seriously.........

I have my eye on SO MUCH furniture and it is killing me that I have no room for any of it. Argh.  I went on a scouting trip while I was in Hotlanta last week and was both shocked and pleasantly surprised at the price points there.  The infamous Pieces is so over priced.  I have seen that stuff on ebay and at flea markets for a fraction of the price.  Their target market must not be very resourceful.  Savvy Snoot has some great deals.  And there were way too many flea markets to see.  The allusive Scott's Antique Market will have to wait until I am in town during the middle of a month.

So,  my projects will just have to wait.  I do have a set of oval cane-back dining chairs on hand and am debating about a fabric......for me?  For you?  I haven't decided yet.  

Cross your fingers that soon I will be at a certain home inspection in a certain kingdom by the sea IF this certain bank accepts our offer.  And then this blog may have to be about a Charleston single renovation.
