Okies girls just a quick lil update on the kitchen re-do.
A 'slight hiccup'has occurred so it looks like i may be waiting a while longer for my 'new' cupboards( i know, bummer dude). Soooo i guess we are lucky that im pretty handy dandy with a paint brush hey!

Today's mission: Start undercoating the cupboards....byeeee byeeee pink.

Now with 5 cats inside i really do have to pick and choose the time when i will top coat them....i don't really fancy little kitty katt hairs stuck to my gloss paint. Fuzzy n Fluffy isn't really the look im going for, LOL.

Oh and the hall tiles are all gone too. That hubby of mine, he is worth bottling i tell you :)
So now we have floorboards right through the house and im looooving them so much. Pulling out nails but...not loving that so much. But a gals gotta do what a gals gotta do in order to get her home all prettied up right?

Here's the very last spot of tiles. We had a moment of silence b4 Shane slammed those ugly suckers with the sledgehammer!

WooooHooo i am so glad to see the back of them!

Lots more to do...I'll be back in a few days with more progress to report on.
Before i go i have to share with you the MOST AWESOME swap i received from the lovely Fiona @ Mothers Cupboard.
Fiona and i were partners in my sweet friend Dolly's Vintage Heart Swap #2.

Here are the goodies i sent Fiona....

And lookie at this bundle of YUMMM and FROU FROU that she sent me !

Fiona you spoilt me! I loved everything so much! You knew exactly what to send me and even catered for my sweet tooth (my huge butt thanks you). LOL.

If you haven't popped by Fiona's blog yet, make sure you do. She is such a doll.

I'll leave you with some piccies from my home, of RAINDROPS ON ROSES AND WHISKERS ON KITTENS. See you soon!

Love n Kisses
Shann xxxx
