The blahs .... :(

I got 'em. I've got a serious case of the blahs.
Check out my "kitchen" and "laundry room".
I mean, I can cut up watermelon, make tea AND do laundry
all without taking a single step.
Multi tasking at it's finest RIGHT??
 
 
Yeah, that's my dishwasher. Still in working order:)
Little Bully. Sooo confused:(
 
 
Oh hello pantry!!

 
The cool thing is, that when I sweep this multi purpose room I can just swish
that dirt pile right into the big hole just to the right of the stove!!
Fabulous!!

 
My ray of sunshine:) The hubby put in my beautiful old kitchen door!!
Complete with her adorable original hardware and peeling paint:)

 
So here's the dealio. I'm going to be taking a much needed little blog vacay.
I've been blogging every Tuesday for a solid 4 YEARS!!
I think I forgot to post once in that entire time, and I think that was way back when
just my mom and sisters were reading it!
I just need a little break. Like a coupla weeks:)
My brain is fried, and my house is... well you know- a WRECK!!
Sound good? Will you be here when I get back?
Hope so:)

  2. I'll be here Dorie just waiting for your return. Don't you just love the convenience of a floor with a big hole in it so you can just sweep away the dirt. May be you should keep that feature.
    Kind Regards

  15. I don't know how I found your blog-but I am glad I did. I, too, have a thing for green in
    décor and in life! I grew up in a green painted house! We had a beautiful olive green,
    elegant velvet sofa-this was the 60's! But it was so nice and soft on a harsh winter's night!
    I think you deserve a break from your blog-I want to see the kitchen when it is done!
    I know it will be a wonderful place! I don't know if I could live across the street from my
    former home like you are doing! I would not want to know about any changes they made
    since it was so great the way it was when you had it.
    Enjoy your time away from blogging!

  33. Taking an old house and making it live again is hard and it does get bad, but it will get better, with a lot of blood, sweat and tears. We worked on an old house for four years and it was a beauty in the end but it was hard. We have been working on the house we are in now for almost 15 years and it has been hard but I know we have to do this! We just aren't new house people!! So, yes I will be here when you come back. Work hard and laugh alot. Mary Ann
