Itchin' for a kitchen remodel!

I'm itching for some updates in our kitchen. I'm thinking new countertops would make the world of difference! However, I'd also love some new cabinets. We have the original cabinets to the house, which I think is quaint. However, they're not practical and some of them "shed" when they're open and closed. Picture saw dust-type debris in my mixing bowls. I think our budget right now is formica countertops, but I've got caviar dreams!

A new way to recycle?

I'm a HUGE recycler!  My husband has also become a big recycler since moving into LaNa.  However, he'll probably think I'm crazy with this idea...

Have you ever considered landscaping with glass bottles?  We typically have some glass wine/water (ok - mostly WINE!) bottles for recycling and I'm learning that some people love to "recycle" these into their gardens in borders. 

In fact, I even came across a site with how to instructions!

I also stumbled upon The Casual Gardener blog with photos and more instructions:

I'm really digging the cobalt blue wine boarder. I can see this in the front garden at LaNa!

I'm on the hunt for....

bedside table mirrors!  I'm feeling our room is a bit dark and I'd love to lighten it up without the hassle of re-painting.  So, I'm on the hunt for mirrors for our bedside tables.  I'm drawing inspiration from some of the examples below:
