while we wait for spring – which for the record, i believe is never coming – i figured i’d share a few favorite finds from this week.  i’m always on the hunt for new recipes, but this week i’m also in full on finding things for our new house mode.  sometimes it’s just as fun…

Porch Home Exterior Makeover – Before-and-After Home Makeover Ideas – Country Living

Everyone loves a good before/after, right? In this project, our clients kitchen had great high-end appliances and the cabinets were in excellent condition. However, true to that Tuscan aesthetic that was so popular about 10 years ago…it was very brown. This home has large windows across the back with beautiful coastal views, but the dark tones were absorbing all that good natural light. Soooo we brightened everything up and now it is sunshine-y and happy.
