ikea! [and a really cute date with 5-year olds]


magnolia smiles

that’s magnolia cafe and two happy people. seriously happy.



what i did while the carpentry experts were at lunch…


a bit of hurried narrative:

we found this morning that the kitchen was a tad bit too short on the left for a normal fridge (read our fridge) and the windows were committing us to no pantry over the window, so after back and forth, etc.  we decided on two wine rack/variety shelves and then happily had room at the other end of the kitchen, to the right of the dishwasher, for another full 12″ cabinet above and below.  so all in all the day ended very successfully, and corin and i had a very hurried trip to ikea, which ended up being a godsend in many ways, as they finally had stools we wanted for variety seating for the nest and other places, and track lights that are cheap and take compact flourescents.

so……. in other news, we hear that we’ll be receiving one and possibly two offers on our house tomorrow.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ok, i’m off to hang out with some chicks.  it’s wednesday.

    it’s all coming together so nicely! On a practical note, how will you keep that kitchen clean? Aside from the smooth whiteness of everything, moping those tiny spaces under the cabinets will be tough. Loving the look though!

    Oh, and the plastic paneling pics the other day were very cool.
