Well, building a new home is off till next year. We are running out of time and its just not going to be possible this year, period. So Im making plans for this small house. Its not that I dont love it, it just needs lots of work and we dont want to invest all the money to restore it, so we want to make it livable for the next year or so. Im planning on taking out our kitchen table (not sure what we are going to do with it, though) and replacing it with an island, which will give us more room and more cupboard style space to store/hide things in.
I also think my style is migrating to a farmhouse type of style. I absolutely love this cover of the new Sampler this month. I find it very inspiring. Its a bit bright for my taste, but Im so in love with it. I could tone it down a bit and have the same effect. However it happens, Im going to make this house a comfy home that feels warm and inviting in every room.
I also am finding Aunt Ruthies "Sugar Pie Farmhouse" site so inspiring right now. There are so many wonderful women there with great ideas.
