We started after the Colors Rally the end of Oct. 2009 taking out the old cabinets in the kitchen so we could fix the floor.

Next we worked on the kitchen floor. I loved the wood floors & I did not want to cover them up. We had holes under the sink big enough for rabbits to get in. Greg said for our safety we needed to fix them.

We were trying to think of what we could use as molding, everything is so uneven. Bruce came up with a great idea to use rope. We had rope, it was cheap, & we thought it went with our country look.

Then we started Greg & I (Cyndi's) bedroom. We have never done much to our room like; painting & floor. We did a total make over to our room. This is our old bed my half was a water bed & Greg's was normal. This is a way to make a marriage bed, ha! ha!

These are photos of the inside of our cabinets. I do not do this to show off what we have. It is to show you the dividers & the lazy susans. They are so wonderful! It helps me keep order. We still have trouble getting the silverware in the right spot. That is why I had to put cards in the drawers.

This is some close up photos of some of our new decorations. I decorated with hearts & Crosses to surround us with GOD's AWESOME LOVE FOR US!

This the cabinet door knobs & I used the hearts all over the place.

The decorations are Christian measuring spoons & measuring cups.

A side note about me. The first thing I started collecting after I became a Christian in 1983 was cookie cutters. I received my first one when I lived in the Shepherd House (a half way house) in a donation bag. I have added new & old cookies cutters over the years. We use them for cooking (cookies, cakes, & breads) & many different crafts over the years. They have given us many special memories!

I believe the Holy Spirit gave me an idea for a game for our kitchen tables. I put my mini cookies cutters in bins on the tables with a square. The big & the little kids play ...Tic, Tac, Toe at the table when we have family meetings or meal time. It helps them to be able to move their hands.

One other thing I collect is old canning jars. I started after we moved into this house in 1988. When I started gardening & yard saling for canning jars. I'm not sure when that was now. I had kept them behind all my photos before. I put them so you can see them now in one spot. I have more jars behind these.
