~A Kitchen Fit For A Southern Woman~

Hey all you {BEAUTIFUL} people out there. I have a MAJOR post to share- my kitchen reveal. Seriously. This is where the magic happens. This is where we {dance}; this is where we {laugh}; this is where we {sing}; this is where we share {memories}. Most of all though, this is where I cook up the best southern, {divine} meals you have ever tasted. Before I share my pictures, I challenge you this- make your kitchen yours. Make it your dream kitchen. I don't care what your budget is or how small your space is. Make your kitchen reflect YOU. Memories you've had. Family. Friends. You get the idea; this is such an important space that is sometimes forgotten. It ends up being a space where people display what they "got on sale" or what they think "looks good"....but does it reflect you? Once upon a time, I had a tiny kitchen. A kitchen that was so small that you barely had room to make chicken & dumplin's or fried chicken in. I let that stop me from creating my dream kitchen. You know what I remember? I don't remember how small it was....just the {beautiful} memories shared there- just like at my good ole honeysuckle bus stop. SO- get out there to your local yard sales and thrift shops and start creating {your} dream kitchen. Believe me.    ~It's worth it~

~Cadillac Style On'a Chevrolet Budget: Living/Dining Room Transformation~

Hey, Hey, Hey! I hope everyone had a {fantabulous} weekend. Okay, so I wanted to share with y'all my living/dining room before and after's. I haven't changed anything drastic like the floor, paint, moldings, etc. Just added a decorative flare to give it that cozy look. Now, keep in mind that I'm all about yard sales, estate sales, revamping, DIY projects, etc. This space may seem fancy schmancy but it was all purchased within a reasonable budget. With that said, always BRAKE for yard sales. You never know what you may find. My goal for the next upcoming months will be to add more rustic, distressed pieces to this large area.




  Number one on the to-do list for the living room is changing the fireplace decor. I'm not a fan of it. At. all. Still deciphering painting & distressing the mantle. I love the wall color but I am not a fan of the granite they chose (madura gold) for this particular setting. It's not the color granite I dislike, it's the color combo's. It all blends in way too much. I would have gone with either a darker stained mantle or a darker granite. It lacks in the "wow" factor. It needs to POP in color.
