optimistic enthusiasm that overcomes negativity and inconvenience to make it

I’ll never be famous for my decorating. I find a frame, I buy it, I put a picture in it, that’s decoration… Or I find something, I like it, I put no thought about where it should go, other than ‘on the wall’.

That being said, I’m ripping down the wall between my kitchen and my dining room (well, not me, but you get the point). I picked the colors, the tile, and the counter top. Ok, I picked the colors (handfuls of them), 7 tiles, and 5 sample counter tops. I asked someone woman if one of the countertop laminates would go with my cabinets, her reply “uh, no”. She took what I had put together my tile, colors, and a totally different counter top than I would have chosen.

And now, I’ve got the materials, but I’m nervous. And hopefully the person I'll have paint (well, they are giving me an estimate) will know what to do with the colors I've chosen, because I am sure I would mess it up. Yikes.

I’ve also decided that I want pictures of Detroit around my house, did you know that I love Detroit? So I’ve heard that this beautiful talented woman in our church has some… and I found another photographer. If you check out the link… I love the photo that says ‘I love’. I really want that one! BIG! And then maybe I’ll put pictures of people I love near/around it. I told you, I got no idea what I’m doing…

So that’s it for now, thank goodness I have friends like Katie who can decorate…

Oh, and did you know that if you’re looking for counter top laminate, WilsonArt is made in Michigan unlike Formica. Just a little tidbit of information.

We put WilsonArt laminate flooring in our house. 10 years later, it is still as beautiful as the day we put it in!!!
