Another Obsession

Other than words, I admit I have another obsession.

Not that y'all don't know about it already:)

Sunrise. Sunset.

Midafternoon.

Notice those trees. Love them too!

Whether I'm sitting outside. Riding in the car. Or standing at the window.

I love it.

ESPECIALLY when it's warm outside. It's so much more inviting. If I could, I'd take all the windows out of my house. And maybe even the doors. John would stroke. He has an obsession as well. Locks. Locks of any/all kinds.

Anyway, Spring is on it's way! Hallelujah! I've got the fever!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The warmer weather has lit a fire in me. A fire for change~ I don't really care for change. Except when it's in my house. And by that I mean change in decor. Color. Furniture arrangement. Pictures. Lamps.

When we bought our house almost 2 years ago, I had plans to paint the kitchen cabinets. We painted almost everything else but never got around to the cabinets. Maybe we were smarter back then..

I had started this project a couple of weeks ago. Let's just say I wasn't making much progress. I finished this.

And this.

Then I pitifully begged my Valentine to help. He's so much better at painting than me. (That's what I told him too!)
Photobucket
He felt sorry for me. And liked the compliments. They're such suckers:) No really. He's precious!

 So after one entire Saturday with hubby's help (and Nan's babysitting!), we got 1/2 the cabinets finished! Oh my goodness! What was I thinking?!?!?!
Photobucket
But I'm very happy about how they look. And I'm so very excited about finishing!
Photobucket
I need hardware.

Photobucket
Even the chalkboard. Which I am loving in the kitchen. I'd like one in every room.
