These loves were my New Years sweeties. Too snowy to come down the mountain, we stayed and played in all that white snow. Missed Jeffy but better safe than sorry.

 Cream soda and snow razors and Jacuzzi make for a great afternoon.

 These two melt my heart!
 Building a ramp or driving around for sledding options are always and adventure.

Till next time BB!

 When the turquoise paint is gone and a fresh coat of white goes on, new stainless appliances, some granite, undercount sink and new tile you can say it was a makeover. Our home is tiny for a family of six. We say, love it and love it good because we aren't going anywhere. My husband rocks, hence rockinrices.

Good bye tile and microwave

 Hellooo tile.  So much inspo on Pinterest. I still love the marble subway, but the smart choice would be good ol' white subway with a white or grey grout. 

 Loving the beveled or the herringbone pattern, exposed shelves and stainless hood. 
 These houses aren't going to let you off the hook. Always a problem but my man can fix anything! Just a minor set back or a small headache. 
 Oh hey pretty lady, whatcha got cookin up in there? Yes, a new range! Hip Hip Hooray.

 Granite and marble shopping was super fun and I loved every minute of it.
 Starting to look a little better in here with patched up walls and an amazing refrigerator. Loving the sink and facet too. About this time I was dreaming of cleaning countertops. 
 Brought in some cabinets from the garage

 Doesn't look like much but prepping for tile with hardy backer and Heffe installed the granite. He and a neighbor fabricated the whole thing! I tell ya, he can do it all. 
Can't wait to show the finishing touches. 


Old Town Orange has the best Antiques around the circle but I seem to think they run a little high as this card catalog was $900. 
Super excited to find that my neighbor put this old guy out on the sidewalk.  And yay for the main man to help haul it away.
 The drawers are super long and just wide enough to house everything for a family of six. Now having one of these is a must and possibly worth 9 hundy. Love how Annie Sloans Chalk paint covered it with no prep and the glaze gave it an antique look.
