Instead of a stinky mossy pond, we now have shady sandbox that is sure to bring hours and hours of fun this summer. . . at least, that is the plan. :)

Also added a pathway for the future playhouse, hint hint hint.

Spring - Finally

We have been able to do quite a lot of work on the backyard, as we get the winter thaw out and spring's arrival. "We" removed the juniper bushes that were overgrown and put back the rocks that were underneath. Added some more dirt and flowers and right away is a big improvement. We will be adding some sod to the east side, so it is a work in progress. . . . like everything else.

Kitchen Table Found

I've been on the hunt for the perfect size and style kitchen table. It couldn't be wider than 30 inches or longer than 60, shorter than 40 inches. The style had to complete with the floor, countertop, and cabinet colors, and be really durable for the kids.
So I've gone to flea markets, estate sales, furniture stores, online, and consignment shops. I happen to stop by Down East Home in Sandy, and I found not only a table, but two chairs that are absolultely our style.

The table tucks in nicely and is low to the cabinet so the little munchkins fit. The tables are well built and industrial chic. And 'good luck' as C would say, that Grandpa Dan was in town with his truck to bring it home.

Closets, closets, and more closets

I love the granite, I love the pot filler, I love the hard wood floors, but nothing beats a healthy amount of storage! Finally, the closets are finished and I feel organized.

Linen in the main bathroom

Pantry, with rolling forward cans

Coat closet, replacing the one we torn out in the hallway
