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 […]


Updated Kitchen Cabinet

Hello, everyone.  As I write this post, Jordan and Yankee are right in the middle of buying a house in Charlotte.  They have narrowed their selection down to two, and if they don’t get the first one, they’ll move on to the second.  They also have two or three waiting in the wings in case […]


New Hardware in the Kitchen

Kitchen hardware

While I was busy having changes made in our kitchen (here, here, and here), I did not forget about the hardware.  I loved the pulls and knobs we selected for our new cabinets when we remodeled four years ago.  However, that love affair ended quickly when they started discoloring.


Updates in the Living Room

I hope everyone had a fun weekend.  We were busy doing some last minute things to get our house on the market #soexcited! I realized that I had made some changes in our living room and never shared them with you, so, today is the day.
