|My Backsplash & Medallion|
My favorite room in my house is the kitchen.
|Mugs & Coffee Grinder|
Yes, I have a clock problem! This cozy family room also has a gas-burning fireplace with a wood mantle for hanging stockings or holding a rusty metal bird off-season. During the short summers of Michigan, we can open up the sliding french doors to our favorite room outside of our house...the screened-in porch!
collection of bookcases from KalamazooKitty fill this room nicely. Speaking of collections...you will also find dozens and dozens of books, vintage suitcases, folding rulers, and some of my favorite "finds" from my many hunting trips over the years. This dress form is on the top of my must-have list! The foyer is still in the process of a make-over, but so far I have painted the stairs, added a runner, hung a barndoor, and placed a HUGE "up" arrow in just the right spot!

|Drum Table, literally!|
|Powder Room...get it?!|
I love this little jewel box that everyone sees when they come over for a party! It is, however, still patiently waiting for an old workbench to hold a galvanized tub as a sink. Can't you just imagine it? It will make the perfect utility sink that I need desperately for washing paint brushes and cleaning up projects. Watch for a future post when that room is complete. That is just about where the renovations stop...for now. The upstairs bathrooms will both be gutted,
I packed in as many pictures as I could, so I apologize for the layout!
(Still wondering who SAM is???? Those are the first letters of my children's names!)
This is from Kalamazoo...to you!
