new home

January 29th, 2008

If you are here you already know, but I’ll tell you anyway, I have a new website!  My husband set it up for me as an early birthday present (thank you dear).  It looks just the same, I know, but there will be changes in the future.  Nothing huge, as my style sheet knowledge is not huge, but at least I can make it more my own.  It’s funny how a blog like this can start to feel like another home–granted one that is always clean and quiet and where things magically get done.  The picture above is of my real home.  I found this little tabletop kitchen at a thrift store near my mom’s house.  It was very lovingly designed and handmade by someone and I snatched it up for 5 bucks.  We don’t have enough space for the full on, pimped out kitchens kids have nowadays, but my kids love it.

    Lovely new home!

    I love the mini kitchen. I think it’s great and for $5 how can you beat that? I used to want that cute Fisher Price kitchen when I was little, luckily our neighbors had one and I used theirs. :)

    the wall is “dolphin fin.” we got it at the home depot–so maybe Behr or Glidden. I really love the color too.

    I had come across your shop and blog before, and now I’ve just seen it on Cookie again. I love this little kitchen photo–so serene. I’ve posted about it on my blog:

    Your place is lovely!

    visited your home tour on cookie’s nesting blog – absolutely beautiful – had to jump over here to tell you, since i’m not registered there and can’t leave a comment.

    my home is on there, too, somewhere – the barn house :^)

    spending a pleasant hour browsing through your blog – i’ll be back!
