Kitchen Dreaming

I've always had trouble making decisions. I remember as a small girl going to a toy store and being told to choose one thing. I knew I wanted Barbie clothes... but I couldn't  decide which package.  
Even ( or maybe especially )  under threat of leaving with nothing.  
More often than not, that's exactly what happened. I'd leave with nothing.

I remind myself that not deciding is still making a decision...

 So the delays in construction at our new house have given me an opportunity to dream. I'm figuring out what I love most
This weekend we went out shopping for a kitchen. 
These cupboards from Martha Stewart at Home Depot...

this pantry ( which I have to find ) ...

This sink ( which I already have ) ...

these floors ( which I have ) ...

This countertop ( which I have but am hoping that we can make the backsplash too ) ...

I hope it all comes together as in my imagination. And I hope I don't change my mind after it's too late.
Any ideas or suggestions? 

Hugs, Karen


  1. How exciting for you to pick the things for your the sink, back splash, the floor...who am i kidding I love it all!!!
