A Peek - The Results

OK - I have finally had a chance to complete this post with pictures...Blogger really needs to improve their picture uploading process...one at a time is the pits! Anyway...here we go...

Dawn wanted to see my dishes...we got these as a wedding gift and well, after using them, I no longer like them...they are navy blue and the round plates dip in to much, almost making a bowl shape and the small square plates...well those pointy corners are a pain for the dishwasher and well they are just overall a pain. The bowls are "ok", but a tad bigger would be better and the teacups, well, we NEVER use them. Ahhh, they may look good on the shelf initially, but you learn alot once you start USING an item. I'm ready for new dishes, but waiting until more of these break...

Beth wanted to see my laundry room. This would probably be the most boring and drab room in the house. In fact, I just recently told O I want to paint it because (1) it's plain white and (2) it is right off the garage so receives all kinds of bangs to the wall etc and could use a coat of paint to brighten it up...please leave me your color suggestions. Hopefully in my next house I'll have a bigger laundry room, it was really something I was searching for before we bought this house, but just didn't work out. This was a hard picture to take, hence two shots, one from each side, because literally the room is only the length of the two machines side my side.


Hydrant Girl wanted to see my favorite part of the house...that would be my office...when I'm able to get in there and really get things done or just relax and surf the web.

Travel & Dive Girl wanted to see my kitchen counter, where I do my baking...it's not much and it's a bit smaller than I'd like it, but I make do for now. That corner cabinet is where all my baking ingredients are stored, so at least it's convenient.


Sara wanted to see my living room as it is now...eeks...toys abound and if you look closely you can see E's head near the fireplace...he was likely adding more toys to the floor. Oh and that window treatment is a thorn in my side...it never stays in place so it usually just looks like a piece of fabric thrown up there.


Lindsay wanted to see a view from E's perspective...i took 2 shots...



Fidgeting Gidget wanted to see my favorite shirt and my softball glove. I am a "life is good" t-shirt junkie and I really like this one right now... "less is s'more"...haha. And my ancient softball glove - how i miss thee - poor thing hasn't been used since 2006. sad!



Brandi wanted to see the entrance or foyer to my house. Sadly my house is so ridiculously small that we don't have a traditional foyer, the front door basically dumps right into our living room...so as you walk in, this is what you see. Also, unless we have guests coming over the front door is rarely used since we come in through the garage. Hula had to squeeze herself into the picture.

I love your office! It looks so inviting. And professional. Unlike mine with an old metal filing cabinet and huge computer monitor.... :-(

You have a beautiful home.

Rachel said...

Your house is GORGEOUS! :)

Your house is beautiful! I love your office! And I totally agree about blogger needing better image uploading. They are such a pain...and someone like google shouldn't have such an annoying picture uploader for their blogs...

I love the wood floor in the living room. And your office! What a space! I dream of the day my office isn't crammed into the corner of our second bedroom, with three cats jockeying for the spot behind my laptop. I am so envious of your red couch, too. I hate my ugly couch.

The color of your kitchen walls looks similar to the color in my new dining room.

Rockin' the Rawlings, I see. Good choice, good choice.

Your house is so neat and clean and pretty! I think you should go with a pale, springy-looking yellow for the laundry room...

Sara said...

I love your red settee!! Oh yeah I can see E...He might be tidying his toys away! You can never tell! I've found this post really interesting. Maybe your other readers will follow suit. I know i maybe will once our flat is decorated and cosy x

Travel & Dive Girl said...

Your house is great. I love your office - it looks so welcoming.

I agree with FG on the color for your laundry room.

Valerie {Next to Heaven} said...

Aww your house is so cute!! I love all your colors and decorations. I especially love your office. Great pictures!

lindsay said...

loved the pics! :) your house is cute!! i would personally paint the laundry room a fun, funky color but i know, i know, that doesn't help resale. i painted my foyer purple, and yellow/orange stripes in my kitchen! everyone was like WTF you are crazy. haha.

Brandi said...

Your house looks great, K! I love the paint colors, probably because they're very similar to mine. ;-) Especially our kitchens -- great minds must think alike! Hehehe.

Thanks for sharing! Love those floors in your living room - gorgeous!

Ah, see, I rarely do the Blogger photo-upload anymore. I just go to the photo in my Web Albums & there's a code right there to embed it. Then if I want to use the same photo again for anything, I don't have to keep uploading the same stuff.

So cool to get a mini-tour of your home! =) I always think of bright lively colors in a laundry room. maybe a lime or spring green to play off all the white. Or if that's too much color for that small an area, a softer but still sunny yellow. Something happy. =)

We got square plates that we registered for when we got married, too. They're very pretty--a bit of an Asian feel--but those corners sure are prone to breaking off. We're waiting for a few more to bite the dust too, so that we can justify replacing the whole set.
