What I Did on My Winter Vacation...

Hello again everyone!
I'm slowly peeking out from my cozy winter hibernation.
I have been enjoying a bit of a winter break from blogging. 

snow storm, Feb 2014

Hubby & I were determined to declutter 
our home after the holidays and we've 
have been on quite a roll! not done yet!

We have also been continuing on our 
remodeling & redecorating projects.

My kitchen has gone from beige & dark oak 
to cream & mint green, inspired by this...

Kitchenaid Artisan stand mixer, Pistachio

Our master bedroom bath from 
sunshine yellow & oak to crisp 
white & BRIGHT firecracker orange, 
inspired by this...
oriental poppy

too fun!

My daughter & I have become 
cooking show wannabes. 
Trying a dozen or more new recipes 
and buying new kitchen gadgets like 
we see Rachel Ray or Ree Drummond 
use in their kitchens.

that's been really fun too!

I've been Cricut crafting & homeschool planning, 
so I should have much to share with you soon.  

After being away from the computer/blog 
for awhile, I'm finding it hard to set time 
aside to start writing posts again.  
I'm sure I'll get back in the swing of it all soon.

  1. Great to hear from you, Maria, and so happy for all the fun things we've got going on. I know all that home re-do is hard work, but sooo worth it in the long run. Loving the sound of your new color schemes, and hope you will share some photos as you go. :)

  2. Fabulous photos Maria! can't wait to see some pictures of your fabulous newly done kitchen! I love the look of that mint mixer!! Glad you are well. Hugs, Karon.

  3. Happy to hear that you are back. Its god to take time off for yourself and family. I love cooking and watching the cooking shows....especially the SWEETS recipe but when my mom is visits me we sew. She sews and I am her assistant but when I craft she is my assistant. Love your new mixer.
    Have a wonderful day,
