A couple more shots...

I see I posted the same picture twice in the previous post, and had forgotten one I intended to post. So here's the one I forgot, showing some more colorful decor in the living room. Also here's a shot of the peace sign wreaths we created for the front porch. The peace sign part doesn't show up much at night, but it looks pretty cool during the day. And finally, a shot of the giant ornaments in a hanging basket on the porch, along with a scene of our snowy neighborhood. So, now you have the complete picture...

Christmas Decor and Party

Hi - had our Christmas party last night, which was fun. Food all turned out good, and everyone loved the kitchen. That's of course where everyone was hanging out! Here are pics of the party, and of our holiday decor :-) We went with bright colors this year in the living room, which was fun.

Here are a couple pictures of our Thanksgiving table. Notice the individual salt cellars at each place, as well as the pattern glass goblets. Very classy if I do say so myself. Food was great too, but our friend who took the picture of the devastated kitchen hasn't sent it to us yet, so I don't have one to post. We will be hosting the UMKC department party at our house this weekend, so I'll get some more decorating pics up after that.

Uncluttered Pictures

Here are 8 new pictures showing various aspects of the kitchen, this time without all the clutter. The first one below is a pic is of our new dishwasher. We went to Sears and got a JennAir. It had the features and look that we wanted, so that's what we chose. I am running it right now for the first time. So far so good. Also, I've discovered that you can click on any of these pictures if you want to see an enlarged version. Then just click on the back arrow to go back to the blog. Enjoy !

The whole mural

Here's a better picture of the mural, followed by some explanatory notes on the detailed pictures. We had our open house yesterday, and everyone ooohed and awwwed at the kitchen, which was fun. The pictures I took that day didn't turn out very well, so I've included this one, which is good of the mural I think, but the kitchen looks a little messy. Rest assured that it looks even better when its neat :-)
