the goodwill blues

i have intentionally been avoiding thrift stores.  not cos i dont love to peruse the aisles, but since i no longer work an office job with a business-casual environs, i dont have time to wear many dresses.  i was suckered back in today whilst running errands.
peter pan collar dress: ann taylor loft
long sister-wife dress: to be cut up into a skirt for work
nautical type dress: landsend [i didn't know they still made clothes?]

massacre pond - the gateway to the beach.  sounds terrifying, but its gorgeous and reminds me of new zealand

new kitchen shelves!

for awhile ive been debating the merits of open kitchen shelving.  i have a mostly white [and yellow] kitchen, and a black cat that manages to get his nasty on every single thing i own.  just over 6 months ago i removed the glass door on my liquor cabinet, essentially leaving the glassware on open shelves, and it has been a resounding success.  minimal cat hairs in my glasses, and the bathroom demo didn't even leave a layer of dust.

i lack the funding to redo the entire kitchen and the cabinets are terrible, so lo and behold, it's time for open shelves!

bathroom status: 89% done!

progress report on the longest bathroom remodel ever - top pic aug 13, bottom pic sept 18.  all i need now are for the sink faucets to be turned 90 degrees [should point outward so you turn the water toward yourself...rather than into the spout], the sink drain to stop leaking into a tupperware in the vanity, the flooring laid, window trimmed out, and the new radiator connected.
