Good Eats.

Looking for a new dining room table? Go take a look-see and see what you can find. I was pessimistic, I have to be honest, but I am blown away! Here at Casa de Kvilhaug we have this bad habit of eating at the coffee table in front of the tv. "Why, do you not have a dining room table?" you ask. Well, yes, we do, but that just doesn't seem to matter. I mean what would we do for the half-hour we'd sit at the table? TALK? Ick, no way! That's just crazy! So I think I've found a compromise.

While I'd love to have this one, I'm thinking this is more along the lines of what Eric wants.

And while I may not be a fan of it's dining function, I'm loving the possible scrappiness that could happen there!


Dear Diary,

Have I ever told you that I've met the kit of my dreams? Well, I have. And this is it.

That's right, it's called Dear Diary and it is so awesome I can't even begin to tell you... So much We R Memory Keepers, Cosmo Cricket, Sassafras, Maya Road, American Crafts and a whole lot more! I'll be designing lots of goodies with this little gem, so be sure to check back for some great ideas. And be sure to head on over to the Noel Mignon shop to pick up your very own - you don't want to miss this one!



Thievery of my inlaws walnuts last week was lots of fun! I love having them around in the fall. Even if I never eat one, I just love looking at them.

And yummy fruits and veggies, too. I'm salivating just thinking about them!

All this because we finally have a kitchen to use. And I'm in love with it! I have missed cooking so much and having pretty ingredients laying around certainly doesn't hurt. And did I mention the pantry is almost finished, too? Oh yeah! Pictures soon, I promise!

Also, I wanted to say thanks to all of you who nominated me over at Cosmo Cricket for the Guest Design Team Member for November. It was so exciting to see my name on that little circle of paper, and it wouldn't have happened without you! I didn't get chosen from the pot, but it was really great to make it as far as I did. And next month I'm going for it again!!!


Help a sistah out!
