  1. I love Ivy. She is beautiful but a pain in the you know what at times. Spirit is good! And your daughter helping you? Yippee, don’t be tempted to do it yourself, this is a gift of love from her. And Marley in your life is such a treat. 2 of my grand daughters and family are coming tomorrow. I am so excited.

  2. I am glad your daughter will do the painting for you. But, it’s so hard to wait. Covering the stuff is probably a good idea.

  3. I love the “sound” of what you’re putting together! And so awesome to hear of the time you’re spending with your daughters and grand. The red and whites and clears of your kitchenware look lovely – I don’t remember whether you decided to keep your cabinet doors or have open shelving – but that combo would look so pretty left open! Maybe just one or two doors left off to showcase the pretty glass and ceramics? Just another thought. Best of luck with the patience – and the project!

  4. All sounds so lovely, Brenda!!! DO WAIT and accept the help…it is what all of us have to do you know!! It sounds great!! Your cat…what a silly girl…you might be able to make videos of her to put up and make some change too…ha!! Our daughter here got a puppy…pretty smart girl too…and quite funny already…we have had a lot of fun watching her play with all the toys daughter has gotten for her!! I do love dogs…but we have already decided we will just be content to go over and play with hers!!

  5. So glad your daughter is willing to help you in the kitchen. Your ankle will thank you for not trying to do it all yourself. And you will be free to just enjoy it instead of suffering in pain.

    I am about as anxious as you to see the counter re-do as I want to know if it’s something I could use on mine. But I can be patient and wait!

    Ivy certainly is a creative cat with her play. I can just imagine her running and sliding on that paper! How hilarious!

    Have a restful weekend with the fur babies.

  6. I am so excited that your daughter is going to help you! I was worried about you and your bad ankle. Just keep the box covered and you won’t get tempted. It will all be worth it in the end.

    Have a great weekend.

  7. You mentioned in a previous post that your daughter never settles for “good enough.” She did such a beautiful job on her flip. What a bonus for you! When the kitchen is done, it will be perfection. The red and white color scheme will look so fresh and will be camera and magazine ready. Her extraordinary skills and your lovely decorating sense will bring joy to your cozy home and be an inspiration o your readers living in small spaces.

  8. Glad that your daughter will be helping you with the painting. Red and white are a nice combination.

  9. How nice that your daughter is going to help you. I understand the impatience of waiting though. I want it DONE! lol
    Love the stories of IVY. Sure makes me miss having a kitty. Hugs- Diana

  10. An all white everything in a kitchen would be boring. Bringing in your red items as an accent is perfect – it’s a great color. What’s that old saying – something like “Good things come to those who wait.” Your kitchen is going to be a good thing, and with your daughter doing the painting, you won’t have to put more strain on your bad ankle and risk further and possibly worse injury to it, Heaven forbid! We’ll all be admiring it in your photos soon enough, I’m sure. Maybe I could lure you and your daughter to my hometown to do my kitchen over 🙂

  11. Wonderful news she is offering her skills to paint the kitchen. You certainly don’t want to have an accident happen and you set yourself way back. It will be lovely and can’t wait to see the progress. i agree on pops of red! Our little Norah was rolling the dog interactive ball around last night and eating the dog kibble it dispenses!

  12. It’s so nice your daughter is going to help in the kitchen, and like you, it’s hard to wait, even for us reading your blog, it’s hard for us, who are waiting to see it. But anything worth having, so is said, is worth waiting for. Anyway…Love Ivy’s stories. Cat’s can be funny…and Ivy sure is a hoot.

  13. Like everyone else, I’m excited that your daughter is going to help you!!! Projects can bring people closer together, and I know you want that. Hooray!!!

  14. I’m so happy to hear that your daughter is going to help you ! I know how you feel about wanting to get in there and get the project done, I’m the same way !

  15. It’s a wonderful development that your daughter can help you with the kitchen. After hearing about Ivy’s fun with the paper, I am going to get out some old wrapping paper for my cats to play with. That should keep them amused for a little while. They do lose interest in things pretty quickly and then move off for a nap, just as Ivy does.

  16. Brenda, wait for your daughter! From what we saw of her flip house, she does everything to perfection, and it will be worth the wait (and you’ll be doing your ankle a favor). Love red and white, too!

  17. I adore red and white together, it’s such a great combo!! That’s wonderful that your daughter will help with painting…that will be a big help for you. I hate painting, although I’ve done it many, many times….it’s just not something I enjoy, although of course I love the way things look when they are freshly painted. Happy Weekend Brenda!!

  18. I know it is hard to wait, but I am so happy that your daughter is coming to help you. Looks like Ivy is having a fun time. xo Laura

  19. So glad to hear that your daughter will help you with the painting. That is a good thing and better with your ankle not in good shape. Patience is hard but I think in the long run it will be good to wait.
    Happy Weekend.

  20. That is so awesome that your daughter will paint! Woohoo! I too am a lover of red and white together. Can’t wait to see the end result – I will be patient as you will betoo, to wait for your wonderful daughter to do it. LOL.
