Had a Good Summer?

Does anyone else have trouble coming up with blog titles?  I've always been really bad at titles.  I mean, really bad.  Like, I used to get my grades knocked-down because they were so bad.   Oh well.  No one grades my blog.  (I think I might just go look at my diploma to cheer myself up.)

Ok, enough of Katrina's neurosis. 

We had way too much fun this summer to even think about blogging.  But I'll post about that later.  Right now, I need to update you all on my project list.  Because I know that you've been on pins and needles waiting for this.  Not.  (Ha ha.  Did anyone see Psych last night?)

Now I'm just being silly.  Here's what I really want to talk about: Ana has a new website. Formerly Knock-off Wood, her website has more interactive applications.  (I sound techie.) And more viewer photos in her posts.  Here is what I found today. 

What a cute family! Right?  I love the colors on this playhouse.  So crisp and masculine.  Which is why it totally wouldn't work for us.  My girls would cry if I painted the house dark green.  But I love it!

And all I can say is, "Yummy!" I want one of these! In white, with a marble top.  Well, maybe just a top stained gray.  Marble would bankrupt me, unfortunately.

I told my little one that I would build her this play kitchen if she stopped sucking her thumb.  Kirsten from did this up so cute!

While I'm wishing, can I just plop my house right next to where this photo below was taken? Breathtaking!

For little one's birthday next month, this table.
With a tea set.

What about this storage solution for closets? Wowza.
Isn't Ana brilliant? Oh, to have a brain like hers.

Right now I'm in the middle of building two of the favorite bookcases.
But, I'm stuck inside blogging. Because it is raining.  So I can't paint outside.  And I have a headache.

Let's all wish for sunny days to paint, and happy building!

Great to see you on here! Cute post! Can you buy that little kitchen and build it yourself?

Amazing stuff. Amazing. Amazing to me that you would consider making any of it! :-)
