Several life changes, many home improvement projects, and almost a year later I’m back. Life has a way of getting in the way, but I’m going to try to do better! I have a lot of updating to do so stay tuned.

(Oops! I was home all day yesterday, and I forgot to post! Thats ok, it will be easy to double up today)

I spend an excessive amount of time searching the internet for one thing or another, but yesterday it paid off. No, I didn’t win Publisher’s Clearing House (although that would have been nice). But I did come up with some awesome finds for my kitchen, and a plan is emerging! I currently have a round table in the breakfast nook, but I decided I wanted a larger one with a pedestal and a leaf to give me more options and make it easier to entertain. Check out this beauty from Pottery Barn…

Paired with these chairs…

(Painted black and I may upholster the seat with an interesting fabric)

They also make matching bar stools for the breakfast bar.

I can’t wait to see my kitchen come together! Oh yeah… the kitchen will have to take a number, I have a few things on the list ahead of it… Until then, I will just have to admire that yummy PB table and drool…

Welcome to House Anonymous!  My first New Year’s resolution was to start my own blog, inspired by my favorite daily read,  To continue on that theme, here is my house-related list of New Year’s resolutions.

Landscape the front yard
Finish decorating the living room – no more naked walls!
Stain built-in hutch
Add glass to built-in hutch
Add countertop to built-in hutch
Curtains in kitchen
Elfa in office closet
Re-organize office after elfa is in the closet
Elfa in master bedroom closet
Organize garage

Wow, I think that is more than enough to keep us busy!  I would love to hear your projects for 2009.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you stop by many more times!
