Getting Ready…

Getting ready for a visit from my mom next week. We will be spending time at the apartment and at the house. My cleaning frenzy is about to begin look out! I will leave you with some random photos taken by my husband Chris.

Things Are Blooming!

May is my favorite month in our garden. It is when all of the flowers that I really like start blooming.

Happy Friday!

Getting ready to head up to the house in a few hours. I miss it when I’m not there.

Kitchen Progress…

We have made some progress with the kitchen! Floors are refinished, walls are painted, the hutch has been painted, and a new fridge delivered! All we need now is the stove.

I decided not to hang any more shelves on the wall for now. I’m going to hang my Lena Corwin map of Brooklyn over the radiator. For now everything has a place. I like how clean and bright the white paint looks.

We’re Going To Paris!!!!

First of all I can’t remember when the last time was that I went on a vacation (a very long time ago!). I decided a couple of weeks ago that this would be the summer that I actually went on a trip. My husband goes somewhere every summer, usually a camping/fishing kind of thing which I have no interest in doing. So, I was planning a trip to Europe to visit friends, and it turned into a trip to Paris for ten days with my husband! I am so looking forward to August!

White Is Nice.

A few years ago I would never have painted a room all white, now that’s all I want to do. Funny how things change. I am about to start our small kitchen re-do. Plaster repair, painting, and new appliances. In other news the roofers are starting on our new roof today! Although not as exciting, it is LONG overdue! Now when the wind blows I won’t be afraid that the roof is going to blow off!

Also if you happen to be on the Apartment Therapy site… I entered our little Brooklyn apartment in the Small Cool Contest! Add me as a favorite if you like.
