The Fleet Awaits Christmas

The guys put the tree up but I still need to decorate it. The beading always gives me trouble, trying to decide how far to space each strand. We have a new larger tree this year since we moved to a house with 9 foot ceilings. (yeah 9 foot!)  Usually I look at photos from the year before to give me guidance. You would think it was rocket science the way I drag out the whole tree trimming process.  Thank goodness this one is pre-lighted, that's one step down.
Now a zillion to go.

Cyber Monday in the Kitchen

I couldn't let Cyber Monday pass by without at least twittering or blogging so here goes. We have couple of online businesses that sell remodeling items for the home. You Remodel is our main one that we’ve had for a while.
Go Vintage is one that previously I just sold a few shabby chic things on but recently started adding the remodeling products on also. 

Both sell kitchen and bathroom items including faucets, sinks, clawfoot tubs, fireplace gas logs, towel racks, and other restoration type hardware for the home. On GoVintage I plan to start adding more antiques and collectibles we pick up here and there. Right now I just have some vintage Fenton up. Both sites carry our shabby chic style switch plate covers.

Today I’m going to talk about some of the kitchen items we have.

Farmhouse style kitchen sinks in single and double bowel. I so wanted one of these in our last kitchen remodel but didn't plan my cabinets right. 

Kitchen faucets in single and double, plus soap pump dispensers to match in chrome, brushed nickel, and oil rubbed bronze. The first one is what I currently have in my kitchen but I'm wanting to switch to the second one for a more traditional look. It's on the big honey do list. 

I would love to have a spot for this big boy - a pull down or pre-rinse with sprayer kitchen faucet. 

This one is a kitchen faucet but I have one on my laundry sink. It's great for cleaning yard sale finds or for those times I color my hair at home. Gasp, did I just admit that I colored my hair. 

So that is just a few of the kitchen products. We offering Free Shipping on both sites. I plan to blog about bathroom faucets eventually if I don't scare everyone off by then. Thanks for looking. I hope you grabbed some great bargains over the weekend.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Hope your day is wonderful!

I think I've used this cartoon elsewhere in previous years but I couldn't resist using it again. Snoopy and Woodstock have always been favorites of mine.

We have so many things to be thankful for in our household this year. I'm especially thankful at the moment that I have a husband who likes to cook. :-)

Have a great weekend. And if you are heading out tomorrow for shopping, good luck and stay safe.
