Staying Home for the Holidays...(Via Made by Girl)

This is my 2nd to last post before I take some time off & enjoy Christmas (without snow) with my guy! Unfortunately, I wasn't able to make it down to NY to see my family this year, maybe next time. 

However, I wanted to take this moment to WISH EVERYONE who comes by to visit my blog (even if you DON'T comment) a very HAPPY HOLIDAY! May God bless you all this New Year 2011.

Here's a glimpse of my home within the last couple days....be inspired & enjoy!

(click on pics for larger images)

We still need to place hardware on the cabinets....should be done first week of January. I REALLY think the kitchen will come alive when those are on, don't you think??

  81. I am in the middle of figuring out what remodeling to do in my own kitchen/house. You are a great inspiration! I love your style and hopefully my kitchen will look as good as yours.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I just choked on my wine & I blame the GORGEOUSNESS that is your kitchen. It all came together so quickly too (well quickly for me, I'm sure you had your fair share of stressful anticipation). What I'm trying to say is THANK YOU for the instant gratification!

    ReplyDelete
  83. I love it, can you tell me the flooring name and brand you used I have been searching everywhere for this look?

  85. WOW, your kitchen looks amazing!! I had to do a double take because I thought it was the inspiration picture at first. That picture has been in my inspiration files for awhile too, and I'm hoping to be able to use it in our next home purchase!
