White Kitchens

Hello, it's Monday again.  I had a super duper weekend! A Girl's Day Out weekend to be precise. I spent all day Saturday with my friend Mandy Lou ( Hi Mandy). We started the day out at Smoke on the Water, it's an annual barbecue competition where all the proceeds are donated to our local boys and girls club. Next, we headed to Ruby Tuesday and enjoyed every bite of our lunch (yummy).
 We did a little window shopping, then we headed to the movies to see Django. (the D is silent! lol) After the movie we scheduled our next outing, said our goodbyes, and went our separate ways. What a day! sorry no pics of my outing, maybe next time.
 
Okay where were we? Last week I said, I would return to my "decluttering and organizing," but I changed my mind. This weeks post is all about "White Kitchens" So let's get started.......

I chose this kitchen for two reasons. First, I love, love, love, the antique stove. And secondly, I have the exact floors in my house. This gives me an idea of  how my kitchen would look with white cabinets. Enjoy the pics!

Fresh flowers and fruits are a great way to add  a splash of color without a commitment.

I like the homey feel of this kitchen. Soups on!

 The pop of green used inside the cabinets really wakes up this space.

I'm diggin the contrast of the baskets and butcher block with the white. awesome! 



I know, I know, this kitchen is a far cry from the kitchens pictured above.



 
Come back next week to see how I transformed this kitchen from "woe is me" to Wow!

    LOL, Great weekend!! Eager to see what you do with that kitchen. It's all amazing and to put very little money in such a huge success is just incredible.

    1. Thanks Mandy, you know my motto. You don't have to spend a fortune to create a beautiful home! But you can make it seem like you did!

  3. Thanks, white cabinets aren't for everyone it depends solely on personal preference. But they are pretty I have to admit.

My Fall Table

There are only nine days left until Thanksgiving. And I am so excited because I get to share it with close friends and family. By the way, the grand baby will be here too! Yay! Ok, back to the post.   My Fall Table turned out quite lovely if I must say so myself. This year instead of using a table cloth, I used a variety of fabric samples swatches to cover the table. So, what do you think? I love all the different colors patterns and textures, and they actually play off each other nicely. And I am hoping the fabric sample table cover will be a great conversation starter as well. I will let you know how it goes. Spode  China and pumpkins from the Dollar Tree who knew? Initially the table had two fall wreaths and two lanterns. You can see it here. But I had to remove one of each to make room for the table settings. You know how I love animal print. I think every room needs a little touch of it. How about you?             

Easy Last Minute Ideas For Fall

The count down has begun! Can you believe there are only 8 days left until the turkey is carved? So, today I figured I would share some easy last minute ideas to get you through Fall/Thanksgiving Holiday. So let's get started! These diy wreaths may look quite intimidating but on the contrary they aren't at all. To get this look you will need a grapevine wreath, garland of your choice, floral wire and ribbon. Simply take the garland and place it around the wreath. Once the garland is in place attach it to the wreath using floral wire. Next, add the bow and hang the wreath. Project complete! Your family and friends will be impressed. For best results make sure that the garland is long enough to cover the entire circumference of the wreath. If the wreath above is still a bit much, why not give this wreath a try? The only things needed are a grapevine wreath and ribbon of your choice. Now make a big bow and attach it to the wreath. Voila!  I used a pipe cleaner/chenille

How I decorated my Christmas Tree/Foyer for less than $30

 I am over the super excited to bring you one of several posts revealing how I decorated my Christmas Tree/Foyer for less than $30.Yes,you heard me right. And I must say it looks quite fabulous, but before the reveal can take place, we have to go through the process. Sorry!!! So, keep reading to find out how I transformed the space for so little. Each year I try to incorporate creative ways to decorate my home on an extremely tight budget, and this year was no exception. But in order to get the ball rolling on this project, I needed some inspiration. Well, my inspiration came via a promise I made to my grand baby. I promised her that Zsa Zsa(that's me) would decorate a Christmas tree she would love. However, with that being said, I also knew the design/decor had to be whimsical and playful enough for her. But it also had to appeal to the adults in the family as well. (mainly me) So, I put my design thinking cap on and came up with a plan, that I thought would appeal to both partie
