Do you know what that means?
Yippee and woo-hoooo, it’s time for granite! I’m beside myself with excitement. Monday is the BIG day for tear-out and the beginning of the installation. I’ve picked my slabs and the granite should be ready for install next Thursday, so it’s gonna be an exciting week at my house.
This is the Napoli granite I’m getting and I hope and pray I’ve made some good choices. I think I have. Here’s the faucet I decided on, the Moen Annabelle.
I liked the ease and simpleness of a 2-hole faucet installation and I like the looks of this one in brushed stainless steel. And this is the pulldown sprayer version. Anyone have a pulldown and do you love it? One of my friends has one and she raved about hers.
So, there you have it! Be thinking about me next week as we rough it for a few days. My hubby is not excited about the disruption to his daily life, so I’ll have to pamper him a little. ;) Say a prayer for me if you think about it, that everything goes smoothly.
I visited the Birmingham Decorators Showhouse on Friday and it was very fun to see. It's going on for another week in case any of you B'ham girls want to check it out. I'd recommend it for an inspiring afternoon. And no, they didn't allow pics, darn it, but I took one of the outside of this mansion in Mountain Brook. !
Me and Sandi from Whistlestop Cafe Cooking and a couple of my readers, Kathi and Virginia, met up at the Birmingham Flea Market this a.m., so I'll let you all know how that went later in the week. I have a few pics to share of that. Let's just say I won't be going back to this one, although we all came away with a little something. Sandi and I found a jewelry guy who had some really neat stones that were strung up ready for necklaces, so she and I bought some of that. I'll show you when they are ready. Glad we checked it out, but it's not a great flea market. I did get up early and hit a big neighborhood sale at Brook Highlands before we even met at the flea market and I scored some good things there, so it was a very fun day.
I’ll be blogging as usual next week. Thrifty party on Monday, so be here with me as I welcome a very special friend of mine to share her thrifting goodies.
If you'd like some more inspiration from around blogland, check out my Tumblr page, lots of great projects going on out there that just might get you fired up for a new one.
