Some more house photos. . .
This is a peek into what is quickly becoming my favorite room in the house (the kitchen)! I didn't really want to show it until it was finished with all of the pieces and parts I've been collecting in place. Something to look forward to (for all of us)!! These are my open shelves that turned out beautifully I thought however. I can't wait to see it come together - it has been in my head for so long!!

They hung the chandelier I got almost 2 years ago in Phoenix at Melrose Vintage (in my studio). This wonderful vintage green will be a new color for me. Both of my old store counters have this color in them.
The dining room. . . lanterns are from Pottery Barn.

This is the Breakfast Room off of the kitchen. I had the two shelves made from a photo I had of an antique one. Trying to decide how I want to finish them. I have an AWESOME antique Milliner's store table that fits just under the window, the length of the room. I got the chandelier from I actually had two of them to hang from the beams in the great room but once they were hung we realized they would obstruct Jared's view of the TV over the fireplace when in the kitchen! That TV is one of the few stakes he had in the decor/design of the inside of the house so I couldn't have that! We traded them for ceiling fans and moved one here and one upstairs.
And. . .I have uploaded a project into my gallery at the site! 3 months in a row - I'm on a roll!
I have been shopping all day and have found some AMAZING stuff for some upcoming on-line projects and for our booth when we travel (not to mention Vintagefest). I will share some photos soon. . .

And. . .guess who I saw last night? The amazing John Mayer. However, I must say, we were a bit out of our age demographic. It seems like last time there were more people our age (or older). This time we were surrounded by screaming teenage girls with glitter "I love you John" signs.
Noah is starting guitar lessons on Monday. I told him he had to learn how to play "Gravity" for me. After all, I did drop down the money for the guitar (and the strap, and the case and the amp). It's only fair!!
Pin It!

Oh I would love to see John Mayer. Your son is gonna rock the guitar. Watch out for the girls. My hubby plays the guitar and I still act like a crazy teenage girl whenever he plays. The house looks just amazing. Can't wait til it is finished! Hugs,Amy
