I've been working on a new SUPER gorgeous display kitchen for my friends at DesignLine Home Transformations for awhile now. It's going to be very clean and classic looking with white cabinetry and lots of special little details. There is a rather impressive hood that's getting some special tile for the backsplash area. Here's a sneak peek at the hood in progress
And here is a little look at the options for the tile
Which one would you pick?? I'll show you more in a few weeks when everything gets installed! Stay tuned...
Last Friday our tiny 4 lb chihuahua discovered, on two separate occasions, a baby squirrel. The Husband, who is generally at war with the squirrels, saved them from utter chihuahua destruction. And when faced with the overwhelming cuteness of this....
decided to save them outright. Now we (really he) are parenting squirrels. After some research the Husband got them hydrated and warm so that there might be a chance the Mama squirrel would take them back even though their nest had been destroyed (but not by the chihuahua!)
On Saturday, once the babies were warm & dry attempts were made to get the Mama squirrel to take the babies back. The attempt was actually strapping the little nest the Husband made out of a clementine box high in a tree near the old nest. Unfortunately, the Mama had moved on.
On Sunday the Husband announced that they had names. Now you can meet Tauny (the girl)
and Ray (the boy)
Here's a few more cute pics because who doesn't want to see pictures of cute baby animals.
We will be squirrel parents for the next 2-1/2 months slowly transitioning them for their life in the wild. I don't really know the details of what that will be. I think the Husband doesn't want to freak me out all at once! Wish us luck!
Good Friends! The only way to start blogging again is to just start so here it goes. I recently had a little shopping trip to restock paper products and cleaning supplies for the house. I know, super exciting, right? While looking for something else I came across a product that I love but hadn't been able to find for years.
As the French say, Bon Ami** is a good friend. In our house it was called Bon-am-ee. It lived under my Mom's sink for all of my childhood and under mine for most of my adult life but I hadn't been able to find it for a few years. They've been making it since 1866 so apparently I wasn't looking hard enough. It's a magic powder that scrubs all the nasty stuff away without being a made of a bunch of scary unpronounceable chemicals. I'm a sucker for packaging too. Love the new (old) look! It makes me want to actually clean something!
What are some of your favorite go-to cleaning supplies?
**no one affiliated with Bon Ami has asked for this endorsement. They don't even know that I exist. I love it all on my own. Call me Bon Ami. Let's be friends!
