The little red scarf....Holiday Mantel

November 12, 2014

Between you and me, I think my cow is rockin it in my red and black scarf........Don't you?

Sitting there all sassy like, surrounded by cedar, evergreen sprigs and pine cones.....
Every cows dream.

Kitchen Progress ...and my new cows

March 5, 2014

I am sure you have all heard the expression putting the ' Cart Before the horse'.... You know the figure of speech that means doing things the wrong way or in the wrong order. Well, I have been known to put the cart before the horse a time or two, but never have I put the  'Cart Before the Cow' until this week, when I hung him......

and him....

I think the new additions look a lot like this guy down at the end of the road....my neighbor.

Don't worry, you didn't miss any big kitchen reveal. In fact, this is the status of the project as of yesterday. Primed and ready to be painted....and hanging in the garage. We are waiting on suitable weather conditions to finish the spraying.

But as I told my husband, as I hung those cows....that the decorating in our 'almost finished except for the doors' kitchen should move right along in the cart. Besides I am a tad bit giddy with excitement.

My main goal all along with the project, was to update the kitchen while keeping costs at a minimum. 
So far, so good..

My pop of color inspiration was determined when I picked up this clock that now resides over my mantel, at a local antique shop a few months ago. Since then, I have picked up a few bowls and cups to mix in with our existing white dishes that we use everyday. I picked up that blue tray at IKEA for lunch money.

My 8 year counter stools will be getting a makeover. Since they are in pretty decent shape, considering the abuse they get daily from my children,  I am going to paint the base white and replace the vinyl cover to a grey fabric that I already have.  

You can see what the counter stools will look like in the next photo.
My kitchen chairs also got a little refresh using the same color grey that I used in my island. The chair pads are from World Market. 

I look forward to completing this project with much anticipation. In fact,  when I am done ......You might even see me jump over the moon....with my cows.

So tell me, do you ever put the cart before the horse...or cow?


that my husband and boys stomach virus lasted 23 hours
 instead of 24 hours......although one little guy is still home sick.
