I'm moving...

... moving from a vintage, eclectic, cluttered kitchen to a freshly painted, new flooring kind of kitchen and I can hardly wait!
And no, my counters are not THAT cluttered, lol! I have a shelf near the ceiling in the kitchen where I kept all the old kitchen collectibles ... and there were a lot! I am getting them down and washing them to have ready to add to my Junk Sale this weekend.

I've also been rounding up all my ironstone and other china and pottery pieces to see what I will keep and what I will let go. In the meantime I have been stacking it on the shelf and top of the cabinet to keep it out of the way.

The kitchen has been a sunny yellow with stenciled red and green apples for years and years and we are FINALLY going to be able to re-do it.

The shelf is coming down, walls and cabinets are going to be painted, and a new floor will be installed!

I'm hoping to talk someone (who shall remain nameless) into tearing out the wall between the kitchen and dining area. Wish me luck!!! :)

These are pretty sad before photos, but I will be sure to come back with beautiful after pics... and maybe some in progress ones if I'm brave enough! I will also share the after photos of the bathroom a little later.

Thanks for stopping by and if you know someone who likes old kitchen collectibles, send them my way this weekend! :)

Take Care and God Bless,


  1. hey lana-- how fun and exciting... can't wait to see it. hope you share with us (-:

  2. Can't wait to see your cupboards painted - I've been wanting to do the same thing and always love to see what other people do.

  3. Looks like it´s going to be a great junk sale Lana. Great photos ;D
    xo Tina

  4. By all means, take pictures of the progress along the way! I know it will be beautiful and you'll be so glad when it's all done!

  5. oooo - i'm working on a bathroom redo - i'll need to take lots of photos so we can compare :)
    and let me know if you'll be selling some ironstone pieces - i'd like to add to my little collection. i only have a couple of pieces - two :) does that make a collection? or does it have to be 3, you think?

  6. Oh! I hope "nameless" goes for the knocking down the wall idea! This is exciting!
