Adding a Pantry to a Laundry Room

Laundry Closet turned Pantry

When we moved into our house, we knew we would have to get creative with our storage.  We loved everything about it except the fact that it doesn’t have a basement.  (In fact, not one of the houses we looked at here in Charlotte had a basement.  We’re not sure what that’s all about.)  Not […]


New Paint Color in the Foyer

Cotton Grey paint in upstairs hallway - The 2 Seasons

After spending time helping Jordan paint her new house with a lovely color called Cotton Grey, I decided to freshen up our foyer with the same color.  Cotton Grey is a Behr color, but I had mine mixed by Sherwin Williams. While everyone else in the world was putting out Christmas decorations in December, I […]


Plates Brighten the Great Room Wall

Blue plates add color to a neutral wall - The 2 Seasons

Before Christmas I showed you a photo of the new lamps I purchased for the sideboard in our great room.  After looking at the photos I thought I might need to add some color to the wall and didn’t know if I should paint the lampshades or add some plates to the wall.  I asked […]


My New Dining Room

Dining room wall

Janette here…..Jordan doesn’t know it, but I high-jacked her blog post to let you all know that today is her birthday.  As we await the arrival of “Little Miss”, I wanted to share a picture of Jordan at about the same age.  I would like to wish a Happy Birthday to my partner in crime […]


A Tour of My Kitchen

Rustic kitchen shelves over peninsula

Hi, everyone!  I recently realized that I haven’t given you all a complete tour of our kitchen since we made some small changes in it last summer.  We showed you the upgrades separately, but we didn’t put together a proper kitchen tour post for you.  So, before I add Christmas decorations, I thought it might […]


Our New House- The Upstairs

The new house -before

Wow! It’s great to read all the comments about the post my mom published yesterday.  I agree 100 percent and am not even thinking of Christmas.  Heck, I am having a hard time thinking of fall.  It has been so crazy with our move and vacation and the adoption paper work. Things are moving along […]


Our New House- The Before – First Floor

Living room - before

Today is the day I am here to show you the before of our new house.   The back story is that we had one week to spend in Charlotte to find a house.  We knew we wanted to live in the city as opposed to the suburbs, and Yankee didn’t want a long commute.  Once […]


Our House Before and After


Hi everyone. As I write this the movers are loading up their truck, and I am trying to finish up this post before I need to return our modem to our internet company.  We have so many new readers that I thought it would be fun to do a before and after of our 1928 […]


New Bookshelves in the Great Room


Although I am finished showing you the tweaks we had done in our kitchen this summer, I have one more project to show you.  Ever since we moved in four years ago, I have wanted to fill a wall in our great room with bookshelves.  Since Mr. Right has been away all summer, and since […]


Getting Control of My Stripes

Master bedroom curtains

Greetings, everyone!  We hope you had a great week-end.  I spent way too much time dealing with a television  issue and waiting on the repairman.  I did get to do some good bicycle riding, and our son and daughter-in-law were in town for what sounds like a wonderful wedding.  (I wanted to be a fly […]
