A new year approaches. 

As I get older, I realize it's not a momentous event... it's a simple change of numbers.

However, I like to use it as a 'renewal' of who I am.  Solidify a few doable goals and give myself more than enough time to do so!

So here we go.... 2012
1. Become a baker. Experiment with different elements and recipes. Keep a recipe box.
2. Remodel my sewing room. Keep it clean.
3. Eliminate "crunch time". Creating should be year round.
4. Go to Germany and London! 
5. No bike accidents!

Easy enough, right?
Happy New Year

It smells like Fall.

In love with red, and black with a hint of navy blue.

The perfect summer to fall color transition.

Since i've officially completed the collecting of items for my kitchen... on to the next big thing, my bathroom.

Yesterday i bought a claw foot tub off craiglist.  The interior is near perfect and I can't help but dream of how redo my bathroom.  The possibilities are endless really.

Here's a few things I know I want.

Simple and classic hexagon tiles

Claw foot tub with round shower rail.

For the past year I have stored up mismatched hoosier and build it cabinet parts.  I plan to refinish all of them. However, i'm overwhelmed with the posibilities of what i could do!

Natural work?
Color stain? 
Combination of both? 

I can barely wrap my mind around the concepts.

I stumbled upon this photo and can't believe how gorgeous the light rose aged hoosier is.

indulge if you will...
(and not to mentioned hand canned peaches!)

New Floors

I finally got my kitchen floors installed!  Red Oak Hardwood.

Later this week the contractors will be installing the sink and staining the floors. 

Cant wait for the kitchen to soon become a rooooooom.

New Backdrop

I can home from vacation to find our convenient little alley backdrop has disappeared!

My neighbors must have decided to get a modern day garage.  (had i known beforehand i would have begged to keep the doors as my own)

All has worked out though. Now we just have to walk i lil' farther!

But i think i like our new one even better!!

Cheers, to old alleys!!

Building up images to inspire my dining room/office.

I have a room with little "useable" space.  A lot of doors and windows on every wall.

...shelving is the way to go...
