 Just wanted to post a link showing pictures of the house the way it was when we sold it.  So here it is...

Real Estate Listing

You can take a look if you would like.  It definitely wasn't perfect but it had come a LONG way in the nearly 10 years we lived there.  If you would like, take a look at some of my first posts to see how the ol' gal looked when we bought her to get a sense of what all took place.  I hope to someday soon start blogging again about our new home....A home we have lived in for almost two years now.  Some of it has made a transformation but not too much.  There is a lot of updating to do and I hope to be able to share it all with you here.  Don't hold me to that thought because I really don't get much time at all to blog or even do the updating to the house.  Work....and health issues....are preventing me from doing what I love.  Anyway.  I hope you will go the link above and take a look at where the house was when we left it.  Warning: they are the realtor's photos so not great.  Enjoy!

Yep, I did it!!!! I ordered this for the kitchen.  Found it on sale....only $79.00.

I have been wanting one of these for a LONG TIME!!

 Actually I kind of made one similar to this out the existing light fixture at the old house.....

Cute, huh?  

But I think this black one is going to look FABULOUS in the new house.

I can't wait til it arrives and I can sweet talk the hubs into wiring it up for me.  The existing light fixture in the kitchen is well (some would say okay) but I think it's hideous.

Opinions?  Yes, we all have them.  Now don't judge the kitchen too harshly.  This is from the real estate listing and we did just move in, so it needs a lot of updating yet.  We'll get to it....yes, we will...probably MUCH sooner than the hubs thinks were going to get to it...hehehe

Anywayssssss, I guess this light fixture in there is just not my taste.  To me it's not only somewhat's just plain YUCK!!!!

Knowing me, I will probably schmooose it up a little and sell it.  Yes, that will come after I get my craft/project room all gussied up.    

All I know is this one makes me happy and for $79.00 I can afford this kind of happiness. 😊

So the front door at the new house was my least favorite color in the whole world.......


I have to admit that I knew when we bought the house that this door would be my first paint project here.....because.....I absolutely loathe anything that remotely resembles I just couldn't help myself.....I really couldn't help myself....THIS HAD TO GO!!!!!

I immediately started picking out paint swatches on my first trip to our new Lowes.

To even my surprise, I picked a bold, bright color....AMALFI by Sherwin Williams...

It's SO VERY UNLIKE ME.....because I am usually very reserved with color!!!!!

This was just the first coat, and not even dry yet....

Instead of buying a quart at Lowes for this project I waited a few days....what me wait....heehehee....and picked up a sample pot at the Sherwin Williams store near where I work.  The SW samples are almost a quart of paint and are only $6.  Way cheaper than anywhere else for that much paint. 

I gotta say, I am really loving the new color.

I will say that the pictures are really not a true representation of the actual color. It's a fresh, vibrant blue with quite a bit more green than it looks here.  It's kind  of like a deep peacock blue.  It's really beautiful.

Yes, I know it's BOLD and BRIGHT....


BUT...I believe it's neutral enough that a nice green wreath is gonna pop and be so welcoming.

I think I am gonna add some cute "hello." lettering too.  

So, what do you think about AMALFI?
