Great Cleaning Tip from Pintrest

This is NOT my tub. I don't think I have a lot of soap scum on my tub but I love when I come across new house hold tips. I tried this mainly for my shower doors. Seems like I can never get them as clean as I would like. When I do this again I might change up the the amounts used. I just felt like it was too much Dawn soap. Now if you have a really bad tub with lots of soap scum than this would be the formula to use. I thought it did a great job and my tub was shinning! You can go here to check it out.

Helen Keller Quote

As most of you know twin and I own a etsy vinyl shop. This is my first vinyl piece because when we started the biz my husband and I were trying to decide if we should remodel the whole house or build a new one on our lot. Well, we decided to remodel. I must admit it has been very hard at times. My husband does all the work himself.  When you throw work, over time and sports with your child in the mix it does not leave a whole lot of time. We took the foyer, living room, kitchen and dining room down to the studs. Now we are pretty much done with those rooms so I get to start decorating! The FUN stuff.
I just love this Helen Keller quote. Twin suggested I put the cursive words in another color and I just LOVE how it turned out.  I got the iron scroll piece from Hobby Lobby. I am almost finished decorating the foyer. I just have to find some time to make my curtains and it will be complete. Will post pictures soon.

Pinterest Orange Dressing with Orange Strawberry Salad

I love looking at all the recipes on Pinterest. I could get lost for hours!
This is a great refreshing salad. I used mandarine oranges because our store oranges did not look good. I just bought one so I could use the peel for the dressing. The dressing is YUMMY! You can go here for the recipe. ENJOY!

Joining Kelly's Show Us Your Life Home Tour Kitchens

Kelly from Kelly'sKorner is having a tour your kitchen today. We gutted the living room, kitchen and dining room to have an open concept. We took it down to the studs. My husband did everything but install the granite. (click on pictures to be able to see better) I just got a new camera so pictures are not the greatest!
I just love these prints above my stove.
We decided to go with off white cabinets with a brown glaze and a cherry island.
These canister I got at Home Goods (love that store) and they are my favorite thing in my kitchen. You will never seen a kitchen appliance on my counters except my keurig. I have no idea why but that is how I have always kept my kitchen.
These spice rack pull out on the sides of the stove. Great storage.
I just love the ceiling and all of the wood work.
I call this the butler's pantry. It was part of our old living room and this is how we decided to incorporate into our kitchen.
The island has a microwave drawer. The ceramic floors are heated. Thanks for touring my kitchen!
