Around the Cottage...

The utility room is still a work in progress.  We have sanding and painting left to do.  Travis will probably do that on Monday and Tuesday next week.  The kid's bath got a new shower curtain.  I'm loving the ruffled goodness!  While I was busy teaching on Friday, Travis installed our new kitchen cabinet hardware.  Yay for bin pulls & knobs...way to get a handle on things!  
Melaine over at My Sweet Savannah made us another perfect sign.  We love Gruene and would really like to retire there.  Travis installed the bars under the bathroom counters so that we could hang the skirting that my cousin Carolyn over at Sweet Tea & Linen made for us.  
Little by little it's coming together!


  1. I love the drawer pulls, those are really neat. Did ya'll do your backsplash or did it come that way? I like it, is it sealed? How careful do you have to be with it?

  2. Backsplash was picked at the design center- it's sealed, but we are still pretty careful with it. I am in love with subway tile, but didn't want to do the white that eveyone else is doing. Went with a different look : o )

  3. I love the cupboard door knobs, similar to the ones i got here http://www.abodent.com/topographic-drawer-knob.html but in black


Thanks so much for popping in. I appreciate all of your lovely comments...Tricia
