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.

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.
