Wheadon House Tour - The Kitchen

Pin It!
{We recently moved to a new home. Today I'm sharing the kitchen. CLICK HERE if you'd like to see the entry way also!}
As a designer, I'm often asked, "What is the most timeless choice for kitchen cabinets?".  My answer has always been the same - white. White cabinets are a classic. It seems to me that they stay "in style" more than any other choice. In fact, when my son bought his 1920's home, guess what we found in the kitchen? The original wooden white cabinets! {We gave them a fresh coat of paint - CLICK HERE if you missed it.}

A Terrific Trunk or Treat!

Pin It!
JINKIES! Trunk or Treat was so much fun & wildly successful. Honey & I had a great time as Shaggy & Velma from Scooby Doo. {PS - If I've ever wondered if I should dye my hair red, that question has been definitively answered! #HeckNO}
I turned our boring old Suburban {named Red Boy} into The MYSTERY MACHINE with craft paper from Zurchers. The weather was a little damp, so it looks a little more wrinkled in the photos than it would have been otherwise.

Good Things Utah Appearance - Gift Ideas for Mature People

Pin It!
It's been a while since I've made an appearance on Good Things Utah. It was fun to see Nicea again {she's so sweet!} & to meet the gorgeous Michelle Money. I did a segment {GTU picked the subject, but it's one I love} on gift ideas for seniors. {See "Click Here to Read More" at the bottom to skip to the video.}

Wheadon House - The Entry Way

Pin It!
If you're new here, I'll just update you. We just moved to a new home. And - of course - when I say "just" what I really mean is it took us a month to actually do the move. Oh my. More about that process later! But back to the house. Honestly, I never thought I'd ever have a brand new house. Now that we are here, I'm pretty much pinching myself a lot lately. 
A lot of you have asked for a tour & so I'll start with the entry way.

Quotation of the Month - October

Pin It!
If you're a regular reader of my blog, you may have noticed that I have been M.I.A.! So sorry friends! We have been moving to our new house & it has been . . . ahem . . . a bit of a "project". Anywho, I've been asked for pictures of the new place & they are coming soon. In the meantime, here's a little inspiration for you about one of my favorite subjects - creativity.

A Summer of Beautiful Weddings

Pin It!
We've been to some beautiful weddings this summer & I wanted to share a few of my favorite elements with you.

First of all, feast your eyes on my friend Brianna - one of the most stunning brides I've ever seen - in her wedding gown . . .

Lovely & Delicious Personal Progress Treats

Pin It!
Note: Personal Progress is a goal-setting program for the young women of our church {ages 12-18}. The program has eight "values" which symbolize something that is important to us in our faith. Each value has a name & a color. The colors are a fun way to teach the program, as you will see in this post.

I recently attended a Personal Progress activity & I was impressed with the darling displays & color-themed refreshments . . . 

Integrity - Purple, meaning: we are of royal birth

Cleaning My Windows - Not Such a "Pane" After All

Pin It!
Please note: This post is a product review. I was compensated with products in exchange for the publication of my experience. The opinions expressed are my own.
 If you follow me on Instagram, you already know that our house is on the real estate market. That has meant lots of torture
preparation getting everything presentable enough for people to see it. It has taken quite a bit of chocolate to make it through the process!

But With Joy Wend Your Way

Pin It!
In my last post, I talked about the pioneer trek I recently participated in. 

I really love this poster made by my friend Janet & her daughter. They have generously shared it with us! That's our group in the photo - crossing the Wyoming plains.
