I have been meaning to post these photos for a awhile now. 
I bought this stereo cabinet from the thrift store, I refinished it, took off the wooden yin and yang symbols from the middle door, took the legs off and had Mr. attache it to the wall.
 I forgot to take a photo of the BEST part.......the original working light bulb inside, when you slide the left hand door open the light comes on! Brilliant.

 I like to take random photos of some of the rooms in the house - it give me a chance to see whats working in terms of colour and space. As you probably noticed  I photoshopped the BLACK iron heat register from the base board under the cabinet on the right hand side - now I know it will look better painted the same colour as the base board - Yup, add it to my list of things to do.

We both like a clean and modern look in home decor but sometimes in my photos I think the room looks stark. I'll take a full room photo and you can be the judge. 

Happy Tuesday..... JoAnna

Ellicottville Year 5

Back from vacation! 

We are back from our annual ski/board vacation - and man was it awesome! The runs were great, lots of snow and extreme cold temperatures. We skied 4 days morning til night. I love our winter vacation, lots of exercise outside and then back to relax in the hot tub, but mostly I love hanging out with our family & friends for the week.

I didn't take many photos of the vacation this year, I let the girls take video instead, I hope to have some funny movies.
Below is a photo of my NEW favorite socks, given to me and made by Nanny. I was given them on the trip and I swear to you I wore them everyday after we returned from the hill. They are so warm and fun. I took the photo and sent it to Nanny as a Thank you.

Thanks again Nanny.
