linen sprays

I am a habitual sheet washer! Every Friday
I strip the bed, wash and then hang them out to dry if possible.  There is nothing quite like climbing into a bed freshly made with crisp, clean sheets. My husband even looks forward to Friday for this reason.  If it wasn't such a chore to make a tempur pedic bed, I would wash them daily. That's a bit excessive and obsessive to be honest. I do however believe in linen sprays. I usually purchase mine at TJ Maxx.
They are typically 4-6$ each regardless of brand. This spring and summer I have really been enjoying Pecksniff ' s rose & peony spray in our master bedroom.  I have been using a lovely lavender spray in our guest bedrooms. If you pull your sheets back in the evening and give the bed a quick mist, your sheets will smell nice when you crawl into your cozy bed. A cheap way to bring some sweet zzz's and avoid daily washing.

kitchen tile going down soon

Well we are finally  placing our tiles down on the kitchen floor. My husband is VERY particular  so we lay them all out to make sure the tiles look right together. We have really liked using Ditra board by Schluter. It is so easy to work with. That's  the orange  grid you see under the tiles. We are using Noce

 Roman stone. We are doing a staggered pattern with 18 inch and 12 inch tiles. Can't  wait to put it down  permanently.

Hardie Plank painting....yet again!

Well as much as I would like to think that we were done with painting all the Hardie plank for this is not over yet. Painting outside today. Great weather for it. This board is made of cement and is more durable and fireproof than wood or vinyl siding.  You can buy it primed or painted in a variety of colors. We found it much cheaper online and primed only. These will be the siding for the front and back porch areas. Last 2 places to get it. Back to work now!

Whoa's been awhile!

Obviously this blog has taken a really long backseat. We are still building our house. Crazy I know! I have had so many friends ask me about posting again. I will take pictures and post about house progress very soon. Today though I am giving you some pics of some monogrammed burp cloths that I did using my Brother LB 6800 and the monogram it program. I just love this cotton hot air balloon print for a little baby boy. How about you?
