This cardinal feather is off to Arkansas today.
Today I will work on cutting out circles for the four custom pieces with seashells, solder a few other cardinal feathers on the work table downstairs and take a trip to Crompton Collective to take down the centerpiece from Sunday night's pop-up dinner with Chickpea and re-stock my windows at the store.
Also, this happened last night:
After extricating her from under the couch, Mike and I took turns holding her until she fell asleep and then we switched to Max on my lap and the kitten on his. So cute. We still havent really assigned a name to her yet. So tough!
Yesterday Mike and I started discussing renovating the master bathroom, now that the kitchen is done (read about that transformation here). He returned from a 2 week work trip to Asia and stayed in some gorgeous rooms with modern bathrooms, inspiring a change in our current non-functioning space. We have a giant master bedroom with a vanity area, walk-in closet and a separate bathroom area. The standup shower is too small to shave my legs in so Ethan and I share his bathroom down the hall. Annoying. Plus the master bath is light blue and cream 4" tiles everywhere. I hate it.
So now the fun part of designing begins...look at a (million) bunch of inspiration photos and decide which ones are actually do-able in a (manufactured) New England Colonial style house assembled in 1985, on a budget. Sigh.
The next two are closest to what I like for the vanity - the first, I like the colors (or lack of color) the clean lines and the reclaimed wood countertop.
The 2nd pic is more what I want - but with 2 rectangular sink basins, not a farm utility sink. But I want the open shelving. Just not the lodge look.
