Island or Dining Table??

Hello Long Lost Friends!!

As many of you may think, I did not pack up and move away to Greece (although that wouldn’t be a bad out!)…  Things have just been uber busy outside of my blog world! Things have surely picked up which is fantastic!! We have lots of projects in the works: Some small, some not so small, some remodels AND some new construction!! I Love it 🙂

In the interim, my  trusty blog was put on the back burner, but not forgotten! I promise to be checking in MUCH more often with inspirations and much more of what we are doing in real life!! In fact, I just uploaded 1600 pictures off my Iphone of projects, things I see, products, etc…. Oh do I have things to share!

So now, off to some Inspiration!!
As we all know, the main congregation spot in a house tends to be the kitchen, whether it is to accommodate the day to day bustle of life or on the flip there is a party happening! If space allows, generally an Island is plunked in the middle.  It may be practical to house items such as a sink and dishwasher.  Although, sometimes it just gets thrown into the design because that is what is expected.  In comes the dining table…. I think it is a cozy and functional alternative!

Tablescape Love….

Hey Friends! Hope you’re week has been fabulous thus far!

It’s been another busy week over here.  We finalized to start a new project that I am SO excited about! It will be a new construction project and the initial renderings lead me to believe it is going to be a stunning home.  I’ll keep you posted  🙂  Tomorrow morning I am off to Scott’s market which always leads to some fun finds, which of course I will share!

….And today is my birthday! I am one of those people that adores this day! Birthdays are by far my favorite “holiday!”  I have several friends coming over this weekend to celebrate, and although I don’t plan on a lavish table scape to accompany our evening (there will be flowers!) I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorites a I have saved…
