falling back in love with

you may remember back in August
when i posted a little story about white

this is a photo of  my kitchen window on the day of that post!

since the post, the walls have been painted a semi gloss white!

~ and ~

last weekend, we tackled the old kitchen floor.

it was 31 years old and very worn. (i know, it's
not i write this i am reminded of my blog friend, Jane's
post yesterday comparing our homes with reality TV!)
love ya, Jane!

so long 1979!

one last peek...

here is my kitchen window this morning at about 5:45 am!
now remember, we are still in transition...i'm "being REAL!"

this is the photo that inspired the floors...

...and this image inspired the LOOK!
i found this very cool striped rug at Crate & Barrel.

for our Lab,  Chocolate Gousse, who's place setting is on the 
kitchen floor, i am going to order...
one of these fabulous mats from Ballard Designs.
she eats out of white souffle dishes, so she will be
feeling very French at mealtime!

it's going to be awhile before we change the cupboards and the 
counters, but i do think that the recent love bestowed upon our old kitchen
 qualifies me to join Laura's "Fall In Love With Your Home"
link party today  ~here~


 the odds are good!


  1. It is absolutely beautiful! What an accomplishment!

  2. Ooops... lost my comment. I was saying how great it already looks but also how easy it would be to faux some beadboard on those cabinet doors... just sayin'....

  3. Looks awesome!

  4. Oh my goodness! I cannot get over the changes you've made. Well done!

    Thank you SO very much for linking up to Fall In Love Wednesday.
