My project this week...

Finally, getting the brass out of the kitchen. For some reason, the brass pulls on the kitchen cabinets have been on my mind a lot. I went out and got some new ones (see the bag-o-brass...I'm saving them in case brass ever comes back into style again...I really hope not though. Oh, and I can't figure out how to rearrange these pictures, so bare with me). Here's the finished product.

Mieke waiting for Matt to come home. As soon as it starts to get dark out, they're both waiting for him to come home.

Our fireplace with our stockings. Matt's mom made me a stocking! Its so cute and I know it took a lot of time.

I've been feeling like the kitchen (well, I'm starting with the kitchen) needed a little bit of updating, so I went out and got some nice oil-brushed bronze finished

The Bag-o-Brass. Now, I just have to get the light above the kitchen table replaced and do the master bathroom that is oozing with brass. I know, Matt thinks I'm crazy too, but I just don't think brass is as warm and inviting as other metals. Yes, officially...nutty.

Its really dark, but this is our staircase

Yes, yes, it has been FOREVER since we've posted anything. So here are a few pictures for your viewing pleasure of the house all decorated for Christmas.
