Monday morning musings -a lazy weekend, a kitchen update and 5 finds for your home, wardrobe and book stack.
Good Monday morning friends, I hope that you had a wonderful weekend. The weather was hot, sunny and beautiful here. I spent dust free mornings on the porch reading with the pups and enjoying the silence. Sunday we met my brother and family and the club to sit by the pool for a but. Aside from that we did a little work in the yard, and cleaned up as much dust as we could before the work starts again today.
Kitchen Renovation Update
It was a busy week at the house, the kitchen demo took 4 days, and now is a blank slate. The dust, mess and the noise was only bad one day and we all survived. I am not sure which was worse, the barking dogs or the removal of the tile. I think the dogs.
This week is is all about the electrical and the plumbing. Our current kitchen has a lot of outlets, in fact on one wall there are 6! The plan is to have all the electrical under the cabinets and nothing on the walls, hopefully that will work out.
As for the plumbing, we have to move the plumbing for the sink about 6 inches not too bad, the plumbing for the pot filler and the refrigerator will be across the room and will go through the ceiling because we are on a slab.
In the laundry it is the same, moving electrical and plumbing to accommodate the new appliances and layout.
Nothing pretty to show or report but it is all exciting in my book. You can follow along on Instagram where I post updates every morning.
I have not been being anything but I do have a few things in my cart and I thought I would share a few just in case you want to get something for yourself.
I love the color green and lately I have been finding some beautiful green pieces, this green and white dress is one of my favorites! This dress is also beautiful, more of a tunic and 1/2 the price, and also on sale. I am thinking of buying this green leather tote, what do you think?
I just discovered Sanctuary Home and I could spend hours looking at Karens’ beautiful homes, gardens and projects. If you are not familiar with Sanctuary Homes get yourself a cup of chocolate or tea and settle in for awhile.
Oh my goodness, look at these scrumptious brownie shortbread bars with ganache! I am drooling on my computer they look so good. I cannot wait to have an oven to make these.
I hope that you have a wonderful week my friends and that you enjoy my musings and finds. Before you go, tell me:
