A few new things

So I went a little hog wild with buying stuff recently. But, I found a couple really cool things and I just couldn't help myself.

I wanted a nice looking dog water bowl that matches the colors in our house and I stumbled across the Yum Bowl by Karim Rashid which comes in several colors including the perfect color to match our jalepeno green paint in the kitchen.


In keeping with the pet theme, I was also looking for attractive ways to store our dog food. Previously we were using a plastic container from Target whose lid broke a long time ago and wasn't very sightly. Pretty much the only things I could find were ugly plastic containers. No big deal if we had a pantry or something to stash it in. But, our dog food has to pretty much stay out in the open for all to see due to our lack of storage/closet space.

Then, I found these guys at All Modern Pet and bought two (one for the older dogs and one for the baby). My only complaint is that they aren't very big, they don't hold a 33lb dog food bag. But, once they are all eating the same food we can just use both containers to hold one large bag.


All Modern Pet also has some really cute dog beds. But, I will have to save those for another shopping splurge.

I also had a mini spree at C&B, my favorite place. I created a registry for our anniversary so I could get the 10% completion coupon.

I purchased the kitchen island that I dreamed about in this post back in July. I love this thing. I now have so much more storage options and was able to get some of the appliances that were sitting on the counters off and hidden away. I bought some nice looking cannisters for flour and sugar and a few other small things for around the house.


Finally, we purchased some bar stools (counter top height) from Target similar to this but in black. I like these because they fit right under the overhang and don't take up any space. Now we can use the peninsula to have a quick bite to eat or to hang out with friends while in the kitchen.




The main floor is really starting to come together. Hopefully I can start hanging some things on the wall soon to make it look even more finished. We still have a lot of little projects to do on this floor (like me painting the trim which I promised I would do in return for the kitchen island) but it is feeling more and more like home.
