I love Fall!

Fall is in full swing here in Michigan..well almost nearing the end actually! November is just around the corner, and then it starts getting real cold! I do not mind the cold, or the snow..just the wetness and wind! The other day it was so windy, it was blowing leaves off the trees left and right and it looked like a mini leaf blizzard. Hence, our yard was COVERED in leaves and I decided to do a bit of raking with the help from my little guy. These are the pics I got.

Halloween Creeps

So hubby and I went to a Halloween party last weekend

and it was alot of fun! He went as a creepy guy and me, just a hodgepodge of things! People did NOT even recognize who he was! We cracked was a good time! He wore this old, old sweater and tight navy blue polyester pants and a fanny pack. Plus the beard and glasses. (That's his real hair) J/K!!

Rain Rain Go Away!!

Happy Friday- or should I say Happy Dreary Friday to you! has been raining for like 12 hours straight and I am sick of it! I don't think the sun has come out in at least 3 days now and it depresses me! I need to get some new pictures of new items in my etsy shop and I need sunshine for that! Please come out sun! :) So we have a busy weekend (as always) with lots of stuff to finish up and start! I am going to attempt to re-cover an ottoman my friend gave me. I promise I will try to get pics of the process! So I will leave you with a picture of some pretty mums from my porch. They remind me of sunny fall days. Oh, how I want sunny fall days and not rainy fall days!

Old Table

I found this old table at an estate sale I went to a couple weeks ago. I saw it right when I walked in the door and knew it was coming home with me! The price fit too! 15 bucks! I don't quite know where it's new home is going to be- I am sure it will move around the house like alot of my items do! I loved the bright blue door and the old handle. Too cool! The top is very rustic looking, just how I like it!

Canoe Trip

A couple weeks ago we went up north for the weekend for a little getaway. The weekend was GORGEOUS and we found a little canoe place to go canoeing. Both my husband and I have only been canoeing a couple times, and the lady warned us that it had a fast current and lots of "hazards" to look out for. I was a bit nervous, but it ended up being a blast! It took a good 3 hours to get to the pick-up point, but it was a super busy weekend and we actually had to wait in line almost 45 minutes to get a canoe. They were swamped. But it made for good laughs as everyone was bumping into eachother and tipping! Here are some gorgeous scenery pics I got!

More White Kitchens!

Sorry! I can't get enough!

Beautiful White Kitchens

So I have been itching like CRAZY to paint our kitchen cabinets white (cream). When we moved into our house almost 5 years ago, the first thing I thought was that we would paint the basic oak cabinets. My parents freaked when I told them (they like thier wood!) . They are basically brand new, look fine, and are is perfect working order. I just want them white. Plain and simple. So I am trying, desperatley to find time to get a coat of primer on them and paint them. I wish I had a magic wand to wave and have it done, for it is NOT something I am looking forward to doing. Meanwhile, I have been searching flickr for white kitchens and came across these beauties! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!!
