Chalk it up to a good idea!

I LOVE the idea of painting a chalkboard wall in the new house... I think it makes most sense to have it in the kitchen, but maybe not. Here are a couple of great chalkboard walls, that haven't gotten too messy!

Am I a stalker?

So, I have NO idea how people find out this kind of information, but I stumbled across these photos that happen to be of a home that Jennifer Aniston has rented... maybe while her real gazillion dollar home was being renovated and decorated... I simply love love love this house, how cute is it? The one think I'm not totally stoked on is the triangular kitchen and odd island in the middle of the kitchen, but the neutral color palate with pops of green & yellow are perfection. And that pool? Yes, please.

yes for the sink... no for the farm.

Back in the day when we lived in NYC I used to fantasize about living on a farm... hearing nothing but the sound of the breeze and an occasion cow mooing in the pasture. Well, living in the quiet that we are in now, that fantasy is loooong gone. With my overactive imagination, any little creek or peep in the house freaks me out. So, how about this - I'll take the farmhouse sink, but leave the farm. What a perfect compromise!

la la la la love it!

Oh man, do I love a white kitchen! Marble countertops, stainless appliances, and that stainless farmhouse sink? Doesn't get better than that. But, look! Look at what these folks did! They painted the inside of the cabinet to add a little punch of color. Brilliant! Love it!

cute kitchen

What a cute kitchen! Love the simple white cabinets, marble countertops, stainless appliances - all punched up with a bit of color in the lighting, plants, chair, tablecloth, etc. I'm lovin' it!

hats off!

Cute hats!

This picture reminds me of my bff (yes, I still refer to her as I did in the 8th grade)... While I may have only seen her wear a hat once or twice in her life, that doesn't stop her from collecting them. Maybe she should try something like this in her adorable house?

Happy Birthday Cat Woman!

Happy Birthday Ona Banona! To the woman who has 9 lives, I wish you a very happy fulfilled lovely birthday! If you don't already know this about my mom, the universe has thoroughly tested her ability to be on this planet... from getting hit head-on by a motorcycle going 40 mph (while 8 months pregnant), to asphyxiation in a house that was burning down (ok, it was a silo being used as a house), to being sprayed with pesticides when she was working on an avocado farm, to falling off of the roof of another house when she was a teenager, to surviving domestic violence... she has seen it all and on this day I celebrate her life. You are a strong, inspring, hilarious woman. Cheers to you!
