Teacher Appreciation Ideas

I found these adorable printables at the Nothing but Country blog for teacher appreciation week.  She has so many great ideas with free printables!  Click here for the freebies.  Some of the ideas include 'Thank you for planting the seeds of knowledge" given with a pack of seeds.  Also, "Thank you for being an extra special teacher" with Extra gum.  Her ideas are endless and creative!

Thank you to all the teachers out there and thanks for stopping by!

A Palm Full of Mercy

Our Savior kneels down and gazes upon the darkest acts of our lives.  But rather than recoil in horror, he reaches out in kindness and says, "I can clean that if you want."  And from the basin of his grace, he scoops a palm full of mercy and washes our sin.     ~Max Lucado

I love this picture of my daughter taken on a kayak trip last spring.  Often I feel like the smudges of dirt (sin) are so evident on my face.  What comfort to know that my Savior sees me through grace-filled eyes, and with a 'palm full of mercy' washes me clean!

Have a blessed Sunday!

A Pottery Barn Deal and Updates

 I went to the Pottery Barn Outlet yesterday to buy a gift for my daughter.  These vintage School House chairs were on sale!
Now, we all know that sometimes even with a sale, their lovely things can still be expensive.
The OUTLET price for two chairs was $99.99.  I LOVE children's furniture, but this is still a bit much.  Well....yesterday, these chairs were TWO for $29.97.  Now, that is a deal for these great vintage inspired, Pottery Barn chairs!  Grab you some before they are gone!  These are also available in off-white.
 My husband painted the kitchen Perfect Greige by Sherwin Williams.  Although, it is in the gray family, it looks a bit more cocoa.
SW6073 Perfect Greige
 We both agreed on this rug for the kitchen after the lovely one I originally wanted went back to the store!  I love the soft hues of brown and sage in this rug.  The room already has a softer look.
 The farmhouse apron sink took three grown men to carry!  It is so heavy, I worried that we didn't have enough support in the floorboards to hold it!
 The island is black, while the rest of the custom cabinets are white.  All of our appliances and light fixtures have arrived!  Next week should finalize the installment, and I can't wait to have a functioning kitchen again! 
Our puppy has grown SO fast!  We are all so crazy in love with him!  I have to brag...or is it brog? Brag plus blog...get it? He is one smart dog!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my baby, Brooke Owen who turns 6 years old today!  I love you!

Thanks for hanging in here with me!  I am ready to return to my normal life...hopefully soon!
