Ch-ch-changes



Our dog Maximus is seriously starting to wonder what in the world is going on around this place.

First I'm jumping up and down with glee because my new cushion and pillows for the headboard bench are here....





(Thank you Teresa Porter!)

Then I'm pacing around the house with my cell phone, talking a mile a minute to Kevin about this whole ordeal...



Fleamarket doesn't seem to be phased by all of the commotion though...



...he just eats, and plays, and snoozes in the sawdust, all the live long day. :-)





I have to shoot some more updated photos of the kitchen tomorrow morning. (We're being featured somewhere very exciting soon- stay tuned for the when and where's) The sky was dark almost all afternoon today, which doesn't make for very pretty pictures.
So assuming the sun does in fact come out tomorrow morning, I'll be able to shoot our newly hung plate collection, giant antique mirror, charming antique table, and of course the beautiful new additions to the headboard bench. I'm so impressed with Teresa's handiwork. Make sure you check out her blog. You can find her ad button (which links to her blog) in our Sponsors section on the left!

Have a great weekend y'all!

Layla :-)

~WOW! I can't wait to see it all!

Fleamarket looks so cute and content. I would love to hear more about that little sweeetie and see more videos. Pathetic I know.
I adore home decorating blogs and here I am wanting to see your kitty.

Blessings to you for a happy weekend. ~Melissa ;)

I love your platter with the P on it! I can't wait to see the whole collection! I just made a plate with an "A" on it a couple of weeks ago and love it {though the A doesn't mean anything - it was just one of a couple of letters I had on hand - that and an M - which doesn't stand for anything either, lol!}

Everything is looking great - the photo's are such a great teaser and looking forward to seeing more!

I adore your blog! So inspiring!

Like many other people, I love your kitchen (can't wait for the reveal!). Just one question: do you (or you husband) ever cook? I don't mean that even remotely flippantly, I'm just curious! It always looks so great, so clean, and so gorgeous that I have to wonder! :)
