Couldn't resist showing off this tea towel that absolutely was made to go in our colorful little kitchen. @sarahjeansews makes the most delightful aprons, tea towels, and zippy pouches out of repurposed vintage fabrics, often adding hilarious embroidered phrases that just kill me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It should come as no surprise that @clattertron and I have no fewer than 3 cat towels in our kitchen already, but we did not hesitate for a millisecond before snatching up Pussy Power. Even the colors are perfection! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I also picked up one a Sarah Jean Sews zippy pouch while we were at the @lansing501 Bridgefest, which I can't wait to show you later!
I’m baaackk! With the end of the school year, birthdays and parties now over, I’ve finally had more time to create. I’m loving some of these new flower designs. More to come soon! As well as my shop Grand Opening! Stay tuned ☺️
I'm so excited to be able to open commissions this summer and create custom artwork just for you! They have filled up faster than expected, but I have room in my schedule for 2 more projects this summer. Want yours to be one of them? Check out my custom listing on stephjoyhogan.com! 💖🤩
Adventures in renovating:
1- yesterday the countertop fabricator emailed to say the prep sink I’d chosen was too big and unless I got him a new sink today, he can’t install Monday. But baby, you can’t throw me! I had a new sink shipped overnight, picked it up this morning and dropped it off to him. I won’t talk about how he had that damn sink for over two weeks and informs me at the last minute because I’m bloody resourceful friends.
2- Speaking of this morning, at 5:45 AM Super Husband woke me out of a deep sleep shouting about the height of the farmhouse sink and telling me it’s all wrong. It wasn’t. I told him so but he persisted. And said everything would have to be delayed. Oh hell no, my friend. He’s lucky I didn’t suffocate him with my pillow.
3- The appliance company just called also LAST minute though they’ve literally had months. That guy was blabbering in about the height of the downdraft and how we need an HVAC guy stat. Pfft. I’ll fix that situation too. —————
Y’all. I do not take no for an answer. Suffice to say, counters are going in Monday and hoops are being jumped through and super Husband is real ticked at me. And that’s too damn bad. Don’t get me wrong, that guy is a saint. But do not wake me at 5:45am with made up problems. That is fake news, frands! I fix the problems no big, but don’t create issues. Especially when I’m asleep. As a side note, I’ve learned SO much being the general contractor on this. And I would totally do it all again in a second. I may moan, but the truth is I love it. Gimme a problem, yo! I solve that shiz!
I decided not to care to much today, not to try saving parts of the painting, not to think where to go, today I just did. These pictures are taken during drying-times in between painting today. I will continue tomorrow and see where it leads me. The color-palette is an absolute favorite of mine! What is your favorite color-palette?
A colorful pic of my children, Hugo and Evangeline’s bedroom. 🦕🎀. They are literally inseparable bff’s, which I’m glad about because they have no choice but to share a bedroom in the house we’re currently in! 😆
I took a pic since it was looking particularly neat and tidy! (The beds don’t always look this way! 🤷🏽♀️😬🤣) Anyway, have a wonderful Thursday darlings! 💃🏽💃🏽💃🏽
