WK 4 >> day SEVEN

Hooray!! Finally, a pretty kitchen. A dreamy one. One that felt like mine. A couple fun things to note: My lid rack secured to the side of the cabinet, thanks to pushing the stove a little closer to the wall, the drawer pulls with a pop of blue (more on those later), and, hello, blueberry muffins.
My dear mother blew me away by having the bar-cart of my dreams appear on my front doorstep one morning. It became my coffee/tea bar immediately. I literally stopped everything and put that little nook together. Now, Bambi? Really? Yes. Bambi. Retro Bambi. The end. 
Little details make a house a home. I swear by flowers. Not really, but you know what I mean. Grocery stores sell them cheap enough and they make a world of difference in a space. A simple platter to collect mail does too. Trust me. You'll feel like Carson delivers your mail to you personally on that platter and it'll make you grin.
Granted, the bedsheet is still on my couch and the piles of unpacked boxes are still in the corner, but I couldnt have been prouder of how far this space has come.

Okay, about the drawer pulls. One word: Goodwill. A wise woman once said to me as we walked into Goodwill, dont come looking for anything specific and youll find what youre looking for. As soon as I saw these I knew I needed to alter my kitchen remodel a bit. I hadnt planned on this accent piece but it adds a level of pulled-together design to the overall space and, only one of the drawers even had a pull to begin with so I really did need to replace them. If that wasnt enough, it was $2.75 for the set. Boxed new from Target. Truth.

little house THREE

December 27, 2014 I moved into Little House TWO and began cleaning, painting, and decorating it. Exactly two years later my husband, of just less than a year, and I -- seven months pregnant, and our Great Pyrenees dog, Barley James, moved into Little House THREE. When we moved out of the second Little House we sold most of our furniture and purged out a lot of other belongings. What we had left -- with the latest addition of a few practical pieces of furniture and some things for Baby O -- is what we unpacked into the third Little House. The apartment you see is as we found it except for three small improvements: hanging a towel hook near the sink in the bathroom, as well as the pot and the knife rack in the kitchen. A small apartment that isn't much to look at and our minimal belongings have come together to make a very cozy home -- just in time for us to become a three-some.

Before >> little house FOUR

At the same time that we were about to move into what would become Little House Three God spoke to Luke and I separately. He told Luke to move us to Kansas City in a short amount of time, and He told me that He had "just the place" for us. As we moved forward with the Kansas City leading we spent ample time house hunting. Adventure after adventure for months with nothing actually coming together. We took the leap anyway and ended up moving into this place sight-unseen the day we moved to KC. I had scrolled through some of the images of this townhouse on the property manager's website but had passed it by knowing it was out of our budget. When the place we'd applied for wasn't a good fit though the guys offered us this place at a slight discount. Turned out to have been vacant for some time and while the amenities sell it it was dated and worn, as you can see below. Still, it was the place I had dreamed of and better still for it to be a project -- a blank slate …
