Instead - I made a trip to the hardware store;
paint color selected - check
counter top selected - check
sink size and color selected - check
faucet selected - check
Soon another project will be underway - our kitchen has been in need of improvement for too long.
The wonderful advantage of living in an older home stuffed with even older furniture - we're going for a dated distressed looking kitchen.
I pretty much have that look going now but when pieces of grout and sawdust from old drawers end up on a dinner plate? It's time....
As the project gets underway I'll post pics and colors - it's a jiffy project and easy peasy on the pocket book so we can't expect much more than heritage paint colors and rustic antiques doing double duty.
Since the weather was perfect yesterday we stopped into a favorite nursery and picked up a handful of plants....my potted tomatoes are about done so I picked up a couple that will promise to give me tomatoes come winter. Yup, winter tomatoes - California has a LONG list of things going wrong currently but the weather and gardening will never be one of them.
They have fairy gardens...........sweet & fun for little ones.
I had one foot in the car heading home when I spotted this......
|It's a variety of salvia|
the little red and white blooms made me think of Valentines Day....I know, it's August but it will bloom in February and the colors say sweet Valentine to me.
I planted it at my front porch......
I think I'll head out there and knit awhile - enjoy your day friends.
