we’re  2 & 1/2 yea  1/2 lol! rooms down &  7 & 1/2 to go, here’s a sneak peak of the kitchen, a little background , years  ago it was wallpapered, took it all down, began painting & wondered why the walls looked white instead of sand, they forgot to add the tint oh well years later here I am tackling that kitchen again only this time we’re going green

that’s just one wall & do you know how long it took to take all that stuff & wash it & put it all back took?  between painting & letting the wall dry , more than a day I can tell you that! lol!History of all my stuff will come later

meanwhile I painted my canister lids black, red is my first love but wasn’t working with the green ho ho ho!

Pattern Review  has a copy cat challenge going on

http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-bin/sewingclasses/board.pl?t=89654

I’m not sure I’ll jump in on this one  but I’m jumping on board for the  Feb. challenge, I found  a pattern for pj’s with matching pattern for the American doll included as well, after sewing 2 sets of pj’s & 2 doll pj’s I should have those buttonholes mastered  yes we’re talking twins here lol!my daughter has a JoAnn's close by so there’ll be fun fabric shopping & sewing bonding going on soon!

it’s a cold damp rainy day here, so no painting, so It’ll be a sewing, reading, old movies soup eating kind of day!

what kind of day are you having?

It's overcast and raining. Therefore, I proclaim -- it's a no bra, no make-up kind of day.

I look forward to updates on your house.
The green looks good. Black, for the lids, fantastic choice.

Btw, the pj's sound terrific!
I like American Girl dolls.
