Chocolate Madeleine's and Tile Installation

Today our granite is being installed. I am excited and nervous because the granite was not my first choice, the other stuff we picked out was accidentally sold, and because there are a few problem areas, but at the end of the day the kitchen will be on the final stretch of being finished.

To do list (still):

1. Tile back splash, white subway, herringbone
2. Installation of cook top/ventilation
3. Installation of sink, faucet, and garbage disposal
4. Repainting kitchen, same color
5. Having cabinets touched up where they were damaged by granite installation
6. Decorate, art, etc.

French Madeleine's!

On side note, check out my Madeleine recipe on Once Upona Chocolate Life, it is really easy and they are so yummy!

  7. Hi Elizabeth... Well I'm coming in part way on a renovation I expect but new granite countertops sounds good to me.. I'm renting at present so have to just dream about all these fab details being within my choices..

    Just looking back through your posts and love that little paris street scene picture.. so fab.. too bad the twin was damaged... I love all your seascapes too.. I'm a bit dotty over the sea.. and the moon.. and can't wait to have a wall filled with art as you have done..

    Have a great week.. and thanks for popping in my way and kind comments... ciao xxx Julie
