Weekly Finds

I finally have a headboard for my bed.  I knew I would find it eventually.

What took me so long?  Well, I wasn't sure what I wanted, but I knew I would know it when I saw it.  And the one I knew I wanted when I saw it was hiding at the Lucky Rabbit in Hattiesburg, MS.

This place is super cute.  If you live in or are visiting the area this place is a must stop.  They have tons of vintage, recycled, upcycled, and hand made items.  My headboard is a re-purposed door.  Neat, right?

I love how it looks in the space.  The bird canvases that were hanging on the wall are now sitting on the top of the headboard leaning against the wall.  I like the way it looks and they are stable up there.

Last night I was reading my February Better Homes and Gardens magazine and I saw one of the coolest ideas for a kitchen remodel that I have seen in a while.  At first I wasn't sure I liked it, but the more I thought about it the more I loved it.

Couldn't find the real pictures online, so you have to settle for pics of the magazine

This house is in Atlanta and was built in the late 1920's.  Being in a home that was built in the 30's I can tell you that there is not a lot of open space, like modern homes, between the kitchen and living areas.  I thought this was a great reuse of space.  The family did away with the wall between their kitchen and a "bonus room" and relocated the refrigerator to make one large room with a living space.

The more I think about it the more I love it.  When I have people over if I am in the kitchen my guests are hanging out in there with me sitting at the breakfast room table or they are in the family room and I am isolated from them.  This room provides a place for comfortable socializing right in the kitchen.  I think it is genius and so charming.

And of course I applaud their use of subway tile.

I'm still so in love with subway tile.

We did get our "snow" day here in Houston.  Even if the forecast was a little off I am thankful for a lazy day.  I see a movie marathon and a nap in my future.

Have a great day!  Stay warm out there.
