Hi all! Happy Saturday! We are gearing up for Irene here along the Chesapeake bay. I took care of all the essentials yesterday: a trip to the grocery store, gas station, and liquor store for some wine. If I am going to be without power, I may at least have a good Malbec on hand. If you don’t hear from me for a few days, you know we have lost power here. During Isabel, this area lost power for several days, so you just never know.
I told you all I would know something about the house we offered on yesterday. Well, we heard back and were shocked to find they wanted to settle on October 31. After some further digging by our agent we discovered there is a lot more behind the story, and at this point in time, I don’t know what will happen or if we even want to be under contract I cannot share details, but I am just hanging on to hope that it works out or something else comes on the market. Nothing has in a couple of weeks, so I just don’t know. Last night I was pretty heartbroken, but I am trying not to be. I am trying to stay hopeful. I just wanted to fill you in since some of you have asked and I don’t want to leave you hanging though I really don’t have any answers.
Oh, and you may have noticed a new button in my sidebar. No? This one….
What is the deal with this button??? Well, you could wiin a room makeover by Danielle Hirsch! You submit a room you want redone and ask Danielle home improvement questions or comment on other redoes, and depending on what you do, you get the chance to win a monthly prize OR paint OR the grand prize, the custom room makeover! Sounds pretty awesome, huh? Go enter now!
Let’s move onto POWW faves! There were tons of links this week to look through! I hope you were able to visit many of them as there are so many beautiful projects. Here are the ones that really caught my eye.
This vanity from Sweet Song Bird is beautiful! I loved the classic shape and colors, juxtaposed with the fun pattern on top.
This desk from Kammy’s Korner is so fun, too! Again a desk with an awesome graphic treatment!
This script dresser from Once Upon A Farm caught my eye a well as everyone else’s! It was the most clicked on project!
And lastly…this dresser from Prezidential Life is a classic beauty. What is not to love?
Alright, people! Enjoy your weekend! If you are in the East like me, stay safe and stay indoors! Hopefully we will maintain power and it won’t be too long before you hear from me again.
