Bits & Pieces...

of things at Number 17

Our first tomatoes of the season...I've given up on growing the Great Big Fat Tomatoes...especially in the ground...I've gone to little tomatoes in pots...

A Big Sale
, as the bag states, at Bath & Body Works...

I only go into B & B about twice a year...I like the wallflowers and I like their Jasmine Vanilla liquid soap (I have very easily irritated skin on my hands & this soap doesn't ruin my hands like a lot of other soaps)...the Jasmine Vanilla Body Scrub is beyond divine if you're feeling decadent...and feel like scrubbin' your tub after using it so the next unsuspecting person to step into the tub doesn't break something...


Anyhoo...loaded up with wallflowers and refills...some birthday gifts for later in the year...and I "discovered" an Orange Blossom lotion and eau du toilette that is so dead-on with its scent that you will feel like you are an Orange Blossom much less standing near an orange tree loaded with flowers...I hope since these were in the 75% off area that B & B aren't discontinuing it...that would be disappointing...


I also picked up some

that's right...Pumpkin Pie Body Scrub...because I have a serious Pie Jones and I can easily imagine wakin' up one crisp fall (okay...I realize this is southeastern Georgia and that should really read "muggy hot fall" but just play along with me) morning and sayin'


"I think I'd like to smell like a Huge Pumpkin Pie today" :) ...really, I can...


and more on the Home Project Front

My second attempt at the painting the lower kitchen cabinets came out much better than the first (without too much detail, suffice it to say there is a paint salesman with his name on My List)...just a little touch up and I'll be movin' on to the upper cabinets

(these will be soft white with glass fronts and the walls are going to a soft grubby yellow...I know it is a cliche but I love a yellow kitchen :) ...now if I could only figure out how to get those black-and-white tiled floors I love in a kitchen...I'm seriously thinking about trying some light sanding and oil-based paint on them...them maybe some sealer...of course, keeping the furry ones off the floor long enough for it to dry would be next to impossible...sigh...


oh...do ya'll think these bananas are ripe enough to be made into banana bread?
(what I was supposed to be doing instead of painting cabinets)

Looks really good! Can't wait to see it with the complimenting colors.

Oooohhhh...pumpkin body scrub, sounds yummy, have you ever tried their butter cream frosting lotion?...lovely! I love your black cabinets, I too have a thing for black furniture, but I've mixed my pieces with sage green, creams and rose...cant wait to see your yellow!

I love the black lower cabinets. Great job!! I'm jealous that you already have tomatoes. I am anxiously awaiting my first one.

Your cabinets look great! The softer color on the upper cabinets will be stunning, can't wait to see it all come together.

I need to get over to B&B W, my Pearberry lotion is almost gone!

see you there! said...

What a great color scheme for a kitchen. Good job on those cabinets.

You can just toss those banana's in the freezer - just as they are and they'll be ready for bread another day. (You probably know that.)

it's all about the journey...
