A Little Fall Color, for Jon ~

I can't bring autumn to west Texas, 
but I can share a little of our
Upper Mississippi Valley color.  Enjoy ~

An Update for Lucy

There isn't any work going on in my kitchen yet, since the electrician finished installing new lights.  The carpenters were scheduled to start in August, but then they had something come up, so we're on hold until the end of this month.  We had the option of using another carpenter, but we like these guys so we decided to wait.  In the meantime, I did some shopping.  Here's a peek at what I picked out:

The big beige rectangle is a flooring sample.  The little one next to it is the counter top laminate.  The walls will probably be beige, and the curtains will be purple.  I think.  I haven't found any that I like yet.  There will also be a tile back splash.  I was going to use glass tile, but I think that's too trendy.  I don't want it to look dated in a couple years, so I'm trying to be a little more "classic".  The background for this photo is a cabinet door.  They look darker in reality than in the photo.  I'm really, really bad at picturing what all the components will look like when everything is installed.  Hopefully, I'll love it when it's done, cause I don't ever want to do this again.
