Getting desperate to do some art

I guess you can see from this morning's post that I am feeling a little anxious to start doing some art work again. The problem is....I have to have a couple of things done to my computer & I need a couple of printers hooked up that we had to unhook a couple of months ago. Hopefully, I will get that taken care of very soon.
The picture I am posting today is a gathering of materials that we took to the hazardous waste dump last month. This was just one of approximately 5 loads that we took. When I looked at the cans sitting there...I started thinking of a picture & altering it somehow. This is what I came up with. I know, I am a bit of a weirdo but I was just aching to do something artsy! The photo was altered at
Hope you all have a wonderful week!

Countertops Are In

Finally, my countertops are in & it is looking like a normal kitchen again. Trying to re-do my kitchen has been a real struggle. Too many decisions to make when you have no decorating sense whatsoever! Now, I have to decide what kind of backsplash to use. I was going to go with the glass mosaic tiles but now I am not sure. I also need to finish my painting. Hopefully, this will all be complete within the next couple of weeks. Next....a bedroom makeover. I expect that to be a little more fun than the kitchen & hopefully a little less money!
Happy Thursday!

Kitchen Coming Together, At Last!

Good morning to all! I've had some problems downloading pics lately & that's why it has taken so long to post some new kitchen photos. My counter tops will FINALLY be delivered tomorrow. What a long haul! You can see the before & after pics. The kitchen has not been updated in several years as you can see & it was in terrible shape. I wanted to lighten the room up a bit giving it a fresh, new look. My son & one of his friends did all the work. I am so pleased with everything except the counter top waiting. How gross was that old kitchen?? Pretty gross!
I hope you're all doing well. Have a great week!

The kittens that light up my life

Cooper, Chloe & Cosmo

Good morning! You've all heard me talk about the mama cat & kittens that we rescued a few months back. The kittens are now 8 months old & I honestly think I would be lost without these little angels. They bring so much joy to our lives & their little personalities are just amazing. I am posting a pic of the three of them looking out the front door & watching the leaves blow across the front porch. I thought this shot was adorable.
My kitchen is ripped out & the acoustic ceiling will be removed today. The cupboards should be in by the end of the week. My stove just left for ALaska yesterday as the gentleman that purchased it had some problems with the shipping company. That thing was a BEAST to move! I felt sorry for the poor guys that had the job but it's gone now. I am hoping the gentleman will send me a picture once he has it set up in his home. He has a bed & breakfast in Kodiak.
Hope you all have a great week!
