my job {baker}

OK I've been given the responsibility of baker this year for our family Thanksgiving feast. I'm so excited, but so nervous at the same time. Why couldn't I have been appointed salad maker. That's easy right!?!? lol Well, this is what I'm saying... Bring it on! Bring on the butter, whip cream and all the yummy goodness that comes with baking. I've been scouring pinterest to see what I can make.  I will admit I'm buying a pumpkin pie. Not making that one... But the other ones I'm making myself. I've posted some of the top contenders on my list. What do you think? OMG I'm scared.! Baking is tricky... You make one false move and its over. You're done! Yes, I'm going to say it... Just just hang up your apron and walk away! You don't want your treats too dry... If you don't add real butter or sugar than you get that fake taste! I'm going in positive {wink}. I'm sure you would crack up if you saw me in the kitchen the day before or the morning of... I literally talk to myself and go really slow so I make sure i'm doing everything correctly. Believe me I'v had a few kitchen catastrophes that I do not want to repeat!!!!!! So what are you baking this year? Any fun suggestions? Would love to hear!

Why am I craving this look... What's it about this look that excites me? Is it the clean lines? Is it the simple elegance of this entire style... What? You don't see this style really at all here in North county San Diego. Kind of breaks my heart. When I do see it I no joke slam on my breaks and pull my car over. My kids know the drill... At first they scream and say, What? OMG what's going on... Then They sit back and let me do my thing {stare, drool and take a few snap shots and definitely talk to myself}. lol Hey, at least I'm open about my obsession! I know when I do buy another home it will have this vibe... What do you all think of a home like this? Yes or no?

before and after {painting}



Now this armoire was a fun one to see from the beginning to the end...  I knew it had great potential. Everyone that saw the before armoire kept passing it by and laughing. I said, just wait! She'll be stunning after she's painted. I do believe I was correct... Look at her now! Standing strong and very elegant. A definite statement piece in any room. Stop by the garage to take a peek at her! Plus, don't forget we can take something old and forgotten and bring it back to life! E-mail me {info@rusticrooster.com} for a painting quote. I just need measurements and a picture.

sail away

{all photos from here}

Don't you just think... Mondays scream,  seashells and sailboats! I'm loving this entire look for a little beach cottage. Of course to complete the look I would be wearing that outfit as well! Sometimes I just sit and wonder what the perfect little beach cottage would really be like? Is there  one... I think they all have a special character that makes each one amazing! What does your little beach cottage look like...
Please share!
