We’re Up To Something

I’ve (maybe) chosen a new paint color for the kitchen. We’re thinking of painting the walls next weekend. And the trim. *Insert audible gasp here.*

New Kitchen Colors

Remember, this is what the kitchen looks like now.

Also, Eleanor helped assemble some flat-packed Swedish furniture for my office. So handy, that little girl is!

Braxton Lighting

We’re going to add lights to the front and back porches. Hooray, we’ll be able to see as we walk down the stairs! I’ve ordered a flushmount and sconce from Restoration Hardware’s Braxton Lighting Collection.

Look at what the electrician left us with in the kitchen though. Are there better looking light switches that go one above the other? There is not enough room for the standard side by side switches that I was expecting, and I would like something, you know, less ugly. The electrician said that he could replace the switches with white ones, and I suppose a new switch plate and some touch up paint will help. Still, I miss the simple standard switch that we used to have.

My Top Ten Salt & Pepper Shakers

Salt & Pepper Shakers

Design Mom posted about chic salt and pepper shakers recently. Well having just shopped for a replacement set of our own not long ago, I thought I’d share the flip-side. See, I like my salt and pepper shakers to be shaped like little animals, or people, or to have science jokes, and so on. Maybe they’re not chic, but they’re fun! Of course I’m always drawn to shapely white ceramics too. Here are my top ten salt and pepper shakers…

  1. Salt and Peeper
  2. Granit
  3. Good Chemistry
  4. Classic Century
  5. American Black Walnut
  6. White Porcelain
