Acts 4:10,12“then know this, you and all the people of Israel: It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom God raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed. Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.””

Starting at the beginning

Good Morning, I thought I might catch you all up on me.  If any of you followed me for awhile, you know that I I have been blogging and creating web pages for years.    But over the last several years  I’ve been kinda all over the place.  Starting back around the time I got a my divorce, which I wrote a little bit about in a post called Do you ever.  Well since then I have really been trying to find myself again.  Some things are the same, some things are different, and quite a bit of growth in all things. Thank you Jesus!

I remarried in 08 and my life took off again, and since then there has been lots of turns and twist.  I was still living in my home that I had with my first hubby and I was trying to update it so that I could put it in the market.  Goal being, leave Maryland and move closer to home (Kentucky).  So one of the first projects we did was remodeled and updated my kitchen.  So I thought today it would be fun to revisit my (old) kitchen.

I wish I had some before shots, but I am sure you know the look.  Builders grade oak cabinets,etc, etc…

We changed out all the light fixtures in this area to a polished nickel and bought all stainless steel appliances, painted the cabinets a antique white and put all brush nickel pulls on the cabinets, which they didn’t have any to begin with.  We added crown molding, and my hubby also added a molding to the top of the cabinets to give it a little more custom look.   The room had been painted a sage green color and we decided to paint it a buttery yellow.

We also updated the countertops with granite and added a black deep sink with  a new brush nickel water faucet.

Hubby updated the vinyl floor covering with hardwood floods and added bead board to the bar area..

Had this been a bit larger kitchen it could have been a dream.  I loved how it turned out.  From basic oak, vinyl flooring and Formica to this.  Hubby did a wonderful job and this is a transformation that I would take on again. I was so thrilled with the outcome.

Needless to say we enjoyed this kitchen after it was finished.

This is just one of the many projects we did in the house before we put it on the market.  By the time we sold the house we had repainted all the walls, recarpeted the upstairs in Berber, updated all the bathrooms with custom built vanities and all new lighting and water fixtures and tile flooring.  New hardwood floors went into the living room as well as the dining room.  Added a new front door with beveled glass front and new slider heading to the deck. 

I hope you enjoyed my remodeled kitchen.

   Blessings,

      Cindy

Balance

balance

That is what I am trying to find.  I did so well with blogging last week and started off a bit shaky this week considering I haven’t been here in the last several days.  Well the reason why, is I started a new job this week.  Nothing fancy just  a cashier position but it is to mainly get me out of the house.  Not sure yet what my hours are going to be, but I felt I had way to much time on my hands and that isn’t a good thing for me.

So now I am going to have to get myself into some kind of schedule so that I can still do the  things on/at the computer that I enjoy.  Not to mention to have time for all my other loves, like crafting, antiquing (junkin) and yard saleing, reading and traveling.   Which I love to do in the summer.  But first things first.   So working on a schedule that will include these things.  Seems like this is the only way I get things accomplished. Can you relate? Or is it just me.  Believe me I always have good intentions but unless I can read them a lot of times they simply don’t happen. 

However, I am reminded of what the bible says about balance……Matthew 6:33 ESV: But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.   So my first thing on my list is my quiet time and devotion time with God. As long as I keep that in prospective then all else falls into place.  So tonight I will sit here and figure out this schedule thing and hope I will come to some kind of solution that works for me.

Blessings,

    Cindy

Weekly Roundup- March 1,2013

Good Afternoon Ladies,  I always enjoyed doing this post because I love looking around blogland.  And who doesn’t like seeing how others put things together or how someone redoes something.  Sometimes taking trash to treasure.  It varies week to week on what I feel like posting here, but my sincere hope is that you will find something that inspires you and sparks your creativity.

  Blessings,
