Tea Cups Anyone?

So here is something that I thought was cute. When I was younger my grandma bought me a tea cup an saucer every year for my birthday until I was 18. I had them carefully stored away since they are antiques and I was reading a lot of the decorating blogs I was inspired to get them out! Here are a couple ideas I used them for.....still a work in progress though.

Still working on this a bit...fake flowers on the entryway table???

Nevermind...this is the best place for ALL of my teacups.....

Saturday Run!

This morning I woke up and went for my 8 mile run. I am training for a half marathon in May so this was on my schedule. I tried to get a few friends to join me but they had other plans. Normally I run on Sundays with a running group (a later post) but since we are working on the cabinets on Sunday I needed to get it in today. What a great day! I parked at the trail head and went out almost 4 miles and turned around this trail is all dirt with rolling hills and gorgeous views of the Flat Irons. I had my music on and just enjoyed the run. Once I turned around it was WINDY...but I just kept on going and tried to work on form especially going up the hills:)
I wore my compression socks so I am not sure if it was a mental thing but I love wearing them I feel FAST so whatever works right?!
Then went to see my sis then home and worked in the yard for a couple hours and took a nap. Great Saturday.

Cabinet Time

OK so I thought I would try this blogging idea out...

My husband and I bought a house a little over a year ago and we are starting on one of the last BIG projects....making the kitchen cabinet fronts! So I will share with you all this process. Last Sunday we went to our friend's wood shop to get started. We bought a pallet of rustic walnut for our cabinets. We already made the boxes last summer...oh what fun...

My hubby
Current kitchen without fronts
Me sawing stuff!!!
Current fun when people come over and think we did this intentionally :) NOT
