I am in love with black. And white. Always thought I would love white kitchen cabinets but after seeing this...wow! I can't get over how beautiful it looks in black! (paint: onyx black by Benjamin Moore. countertops are granite.)
And speaking of black...how about all black walls! mmm...looks terrific. And that ceiling. Nice, very nice.
And this ceiling... more niceness.
How hard can this wall be? haha. Looks like it would be fairly simple, the hardest part would be convincing my honey this is a good idea. :)

Christmasy pictures. What's with my infatuation with all the black?!? Beautiful, for sure.
Isn't this fantastic? I love this...looks like a good project the kiddos could help me with?! Now I need to go get my hands on some pipe cleaners. This would make a really cool window treatment, christmas tree ornament or any manner of things.
Drum roll, please. babababbum... "that house on main st." And don't you think that little screened in porch looks perfect for sipping/drinking/gulping a cup of coffee while watching everyone else on the street walk the dog/walk to work/get their daily exercise/peer in at me.
I like this idea...good way to make use of ornamnents year round. I could see a mobile of some kind, similar to this, hanging in Tori's room...but with some kind of lights.?
And I can't help myself...I think this light is so romantic! Mmmm
This shed is SO going to be in my very own yard someday. Since my husband is a master with backyard sheds, I didn't have any trouble at all convincing him that this one is PERFECT for our new yard. It actually already even looks like our yard, with the boxwoods and everything (well, minus the shed) so it doesn't take too much imagination to see this tucked away back in there. Jo.
I lo-o-ove these rooms. Too bad my black cabinet isn't that dainty. But I love mine just the same. Cannot wait to get my hands on a new house and rediscover my decorative magic. If it's still there, anymore. Which I'm sure it is...my mind has been whirling with fun ways to make a one-of-a-kind, Jo-kind of home.
Still waiting and waiting and waiting...and did I say waiting?!? The mountain of boxes is growing higher and the patience is growing thinner. The house on main st. in unoccupied now, and that makes this move feel even more like it should happen NOW. We were hoping for a closing on this old house sometime last week. nada. Or maybe this week? Hmm...maybe. We've pulled strings, begged, pleaded and made ourselves a nuisance to the attorney's poor secretary. If only our buyers' bank would think about how the poor little Glick children have no Christmas decor, no tree, and Christmas presents perhaps lost under the box mountain. bahahaha! :) Seriously, I thot I could handle this. You know, closings are like babies...they come when they're ready, and blah blah. But babies aren't usually overdue 3 weeks without someone wanting to do surgery or inject those hormones to make things move. Hmm...hormones...maybe I should add some to this situation? Nah. Bad idea.
A good thing about this week is that I've found some new freedom. Kind of a letting go, finally, of things in the past and reaching out to embrace my present( can't you tell this has nothing to do with the house, tho?). Who I am at this present stage of life, the spiritual growth God has led me through. We were back to visit our old church last Sunday and that brought me closure of a sort. And I find myself more comfortable with how I look to others, how I act, etc. For some odd reason, one of my little threads of human fear got disconnected and uprooted. I find myself more at peace with going out in public and not fearing who I might run into. 8 mos. is a long time, but some peoples opinions seem to hang over you for forever. Hopefully I can pack them away, in a box, and move them too. Far away....thrown into the ocean of God's grace. I'm working on that!
