Fixer Upper + Me + Scallops

I’m going to assume that if you read my blog,

you also watch HGTV’s Fixer Upper show.

You also love just about everything that they do,

especially the transformation of the exterior of this house:

Wouldn’t you know it,

there are so many before houses  in our town’s new-house neighborhood.

No offense, homeowners, but it’s kind of a buzz kill

when we’re riding around, looking at houses, as one does.

But let’s turn our frowns upside-down!

Let’s go inside this beautiful home , for another major LIKE by me.

Look at that darling white children’s table.

Can you guess?

I mean, who cares how granny they are?

They’re adorable!

Ditto for this charming ottoman:

Guess what!

We have an ottoman that’s just like this, so stay tuned!

Meanwhile, check out this charmer (ha — a pun — “check out”!)

And now, for those who are sewing-challenged, this fun project:

But people.  Look at this:

Our own kitchen awaits its range hood:

I know that G.O. could make us one of these!

Here ’tis again:

Wonderful!

And now, for some full-blown granny:

I rest my case.

    Well, I will be honest here, I like scallops on some things, but maybe not on your kitchen range hood. I love your kitchen but the scallops,to me, just seem to cottagey. But, that’s just my opinion, if you like it, that’s all that matters.

    LOL! Girlfriend, I know of which you speak — my house might have a wee bit of cottage charm, but it’s not like I’ve got florals + polka dots everywhere. 😉 I have a range hood in mind. I wonder if I have blogged about it previously. C R S !
