  2. You've done an amazing job on your home. And what I particularly like is that it's a work in progress - like most people's homes. I love how bright everything is.

  3. I love your place. It's so bright and happy! I have considered a chalk backsplash. Can you tell me how it holds up to water and cooking splashes?

  6. Heather, your home is beyond incredible! You have done such an amazing job on EVERYTHING!!! I love all of it, every last detail. It's so hard to tell it's a work in progress, because to my eyes it's pure perfection. And your photographs... you take beautiful photographs! Lemonade on the porch one of these hot sunny days? A day thrifting, maybe?
