Crystal Ball Fun

Look into my eyeesssss….yes, I purchased a crystal ball to foretell the future but I stopped to take a picture with it first.  LOL.   Soon I will get out and take a better picture with less reflections, etc., but for now I couldn’t resist posting a quick one of our new kitchen.  I think I see dinner in our future!  🙂

Home is Where the Heart Is!

For the last 2-1/2 months, we’ve been under a major remodel and have been living somewhere else.  This past weekend we moved home and I can’t tell you how nice it is to be back home!  I’m so proud of what we’ve accomplished, although the kitchen is not quite done.  You’ll see some missing cabinets and light bulbs, window treatments, etc.  This will all be completed soon, but we wanted to come home as soon as it was habitable.

The picture of our new kitchen was taken with my D750 using my 24-120mm lens (I love that lens!).  I tone-mapped it in Nik HDR and then added some sharpening.

The “before” was taken with my iPhone.  You can see where the space was originally enclosed and much smaller.  We opened it up and moved the fireplace to a corner in the living room.  Dave is a happy camper in the kitchen last night cooking our first meal which was chicken piccata…it was yummy!
