Winona Cottage

Here is the new kitchen. Outfitted in pink appliances from Big Chill. I really love the appliances! The kitchen cabinets are Kraftmaid. 
With pink glass knobs of course.

We used an old screen door from a house that was to be torn down as the pantry door.
Retro beauty 
Praying Lady cookie jar.
Here's the toy version. The inspiration for the life size fridge. 
My friend Chrissy from @finallyafarmgirl on Instagram,  sent me this cute dish towel that she hand embroidered. It's perfect for the new kitchen. We should be moving in next week.!. Or so we think. The only thing I ever know for sure is nothing is for sure. Have a blessed week!

Pink Heaven

Last week was my birthday.... Another year gone. My husband's cousin took me to lunch and we stopped at a few thrift stores. I couldn't believe my luck. I entered pink dish heavenđź’• 

I found so many beautiful pink dishes. I'm totally in love with them. I'm guessing someone either passed away and they had a lot of pink or someone grew tired of them. But I got a whole set of these plates, salad plates and butter plates. No bowls but I will keep my eyes open.

I couldn't leave them behind! I was so happy. A little birthday blessing.

My daughter also went with me to the consignment shop on my birthday. We weren't as successful there. But it was fun.

In other news the house is in the last stages! I'm hoping by next week to be finished! 
My husband started on the door knob installation.

And half of the appliances were delivered! Yes I really bought pink appliances! I never grow tired of the color. While others are changing everything and getting rid of there pink I'm only loving it more.

I do hope you are all well. 
Blessings and Love, 
Amy Jo

Kitchen Finds

Good morning! I thought I would share a little of my kitchen finds. I got these Pyrex bowls last week at an estate sale for $25.00. I was so excited! 
 The knobs in my new kitchen.
My little prayer lady napkin holder. I've had her for years my mom gave her to me for my birthday one year.

 So I've started packing just a few things... Things I don't use every day. It's really strange thinking about leaving my childhood home. But I'm excited too. I'm praying the next family will have as many wonderful years here as we have had.

Kitchen Update

The kitchen cabinets are mostly installed! They sent the wrong bead board for the back of the island. But they should send a new one out fairly quickly. I'm really happy with how they turned out. 
Today they template for the quartz countertops. So the kitchen is really coming together now. We used an old screen door for the pantry. It came off of a house that was being torn down in Winter Park Florida.  I guess I better try to keep the pantry organized! It won't be easy to hide a mess with this door.

Until next time,

It's Been A While....

 The last time we talked my nephew was about to get married. Which he did and they have been blissfully wed for 7 months! 
And We decided to build a new house and sell this, my childhood home! It wasn't an easy decision but we are now very excited about our new property. It's five acres off of a dirt road in the country.

On March 8th we broke ground! It has been a process. But...
It's coming along nicely... We decided not to put our current house on the market until after we finish building. But this past Friday we got an offer. So we countered and they accepted. Now we are in the process of finishing our house and packing. Busy is an understatement. I just wanted to pop in an update you all. I do hope everyone is well. I just downloaded an app to blog from my phone so now I can blog anywhere! So expect to see me more often!

Tammy Doll

Hello There! It has been a long while! 6 Months actually! I have been active over on instagram. I love it and it is so easy to do. But sometimes I miss my little piece of blog world. I still read most everyone's post I just can't comment from my phone. But I'm here.

I don't know how many of you know Tammy. But she is the sweetest thing. LOL. I have 2 Tammy dolls and they are a cute collectible. You know how I love vintage things.

Levi is now in the 7th grade and doing quite well. School time always means a lot of running for me. I'm on the road 3 hours a day driving back and forth to school.

And can you believe it is Fall Y'all? Me neither, summer was a blur of mostly rain every day down here in Florida.

Our septic business has been extremely busy so even though we are tired of rain, it truly has been a blessing!

I'm looking forward to all of the Holidays and times with family and friends. We have a wedding coming up for my nephew! That is going to be so fun! Also Thanksgiving and Christmas. oh it is going to be great! It is good to be back here. I hope some of you are still here! Happy October Friends!
