A kitchen update, my Amazon Prime days finds and 5 finds.
Good Monday morning friends! How was your weekend? Have you been in the middle of the heatwave? Me too and frankly I am over it. It’s too hot to do anything. The last two days it have been rainy and grey and it has been a welcome respite, in fact the temps went down to the 70’s.
Since the kitchen renovation started I have been tied to the house in case there are questions or problems. Consequently I have spent a lot of time on line looking at sales including Amazon Prime days and there are lots of deals to be had for yourself and to stock up for Christmas.
Kitchen Progress Update
The kitchen looks fabulous if I do say so myself. Sorry about the horrible photo but it was gray and rainy. Every day we are one step closer to baking and cooking our favorite foods. This past week they installed the cabinets in the kitchen and laundry room, it is amazing how much bigger the room looks with the cabinets to the ceiling and the peninsula removed.
They also installed the knobs, we went with unlaquered brass knobs in the kitchen and the black knobs in the laundry room. If you are searching for beautiful cabinet hardware Rejuevination has some beautiful choices.
Friday the stone fabricators came to template the space and they will be cutting the stone this week.
The appliance(minus the refrigerator) will be arriving this week along with the sinks, disposal, and faucets.
Our Anne Sacks tile for the backsplash is sitting on a pallet patiently waiting to be installed.
The floor tile will be arriving fingers crossed next week. Ideally we would have laid the tile under the cabinets but there was not enough of the tile we wanted. So our contractors have decided it will only be under the appliances and obviously the rest of the floor.
After that, paint, finishing work, and then some sweet treats in my new ovens.

My Amazon Finds
At our house I primarily purchase books, beauty products and small items from Amazon. My husband buys everything from Amazon. I do not think he has stepped foot in a shop, except the local hardware store, in years.
I just signed up for this, I do not watch tv but I have heard great things about Acorn so I thought I would give it a try.
Watch all of your favorite British TV shows for .99 for the first 2 months and then $6.99 after.
Here are a few of the things my husband loves and recommends. We own or use the following products so if you have questions let me know.
If you love coffee or coffee drinks this Breville Coffee maker is on sale today! My husband has this very machine, which he purchased on Amazon and he makes his favorite Americano coffee every day with it.
Not into fancy machines or something so big the Keurig mini is on sale today!
A couple of years ago we purchased this Ooni pizza oven and it makes the best homemade pizza. There are many sizes, this 12″ only makes one pizza at a time, so be sure to get the size that fits your family needs.
I purchased this mini-waffle maker last year and use it almost every weekend. We make both sweet and savory waffles in it. This two-pack includes the waffle maker and small griddle, perfect for eggs. It is on sale for $21.00. Keep one for yourself and give one to a friend.
Vital Proteins Collegen has been in my smoothies every day for the last 3 years.. It has 20 grams of protein per serving and is a great way to not only add protein to your diet but also improve the look and health of your hair, skin and nails.
There are so many more things we purchase(d) from Amazon but there is not enough time to list them.
If you shop the sales I would love to know what you purchased.
