Things to Share

As I stated in an earlier post, we have been working on our laundry room.  When we remodeled our kitchen last year, we took those cream colored cabinets and installed them in the laundry room.
Our former cabinets were  drab grey German cabinets,
I can't believe we only have 1 picture of the laundry room before...Go figure!
Here's a peek!   We are pleased how it turned out.
I will be showing more of it when we do the backsplash.

 Here's the former kitchen cabinets.

 The new kitchen

The Fairy Blog Mother has been busy.....LOL
Liz, from Infuse With Liz wanted a new look for her blog, so I set out to make the changes.
She started with the leopard print and because of her Swedish ancestry, she decided to go with the lions shield.  It is totally different and rather regal looking.  Liz is recovering from Sciatica.
I hope she feels better soon.

I also tweaked Sami's blog, Pontifical Porch.  She wanted a  very simple look.

Kathe from the blog Kathe With an E invited me to join the Blogger's group - Bloggers on Blogger (Blogspot) on Facebook.  Thanks again Kathe.  I appreciate the invite and it has kept me busy....LOL

I set out to help a fellow blogger and spent  many hours tweaking her blog.

On another note, I won, or should I say our dog Lacy....came in runner-up in the FrankenPet contest by PicMonkey. I won a year of Royale PicMonkey and a $25.00 gift certificate from Petsmart.
 Lacy has won  many contests.  She won a $100.00 gift certificate from our vet, Animal medical Center.  They are on Facebook.  She didn't have all the blood and gore for that contest.  Lacy has also been featured in the newspaper.

Here's the link if you want to see the winners.

 Kind of creepy.  Looks like Lacy fits right in on the show Walking Dead.  LOL
I love Pic Monkey.  You can do so much with the program.

Lastly I am sharing this fabulous cake stand, made out of an old brass chandelier.
 I Heart Naptime.  Gotta love re-purposing.

Happy Sunday.

Does she know just what a celebrity she is? :) I think that chandy cake stand re-do is awesome. I would never think of that ~

  12. I did a similar thrift move when I remodeled my kitchen. In my case I put the old cabinets in dear husbands' workshop. It turned out well but I'm already dreaming of painting them as they are wengé - so dark - and the space doesn't have enough light. Husband says they're great but what does he know?! ahahahah
    Love the change. Enjoy!

  13. Hi Linda, love your laundry and kitchen. Everything you designed and reused is wonderful. Love Liz's blog too. It looks terrific and captures her well. Your sweet pup is adorable and the chandy is so pretty in pink!! Have a great day and fun decorating!!

  15. Good morning dear Linda! I am terribly late here.....a snow storm yesterday lengthened my evening and I was unable to get to the computer....WOW your makeovers are just stunning - your kitchen, a DREAM! And the cabinets in the laundry room really have changed the atmosphere. And your cake that is GENIUS. I need to send my dear blogger pal over here who is also very creative, so she can see the possibilities of an upside down chandelier!!! Happy day dearest Linda! Anita
