I am lucky and have a home in AZ along with the one we live in all the time. It is my ‘run away from winter’ home. I have been repainting the main floor and trying to add a few homey touches to it. I want it to be a vacation home and since my favorite vacation place is the beach it is more of a beach house. I painted the dining/kitchen a teal blue and I’m accenting with orange.
Relax is about the cupboards over the oven to remind everyone that if you are here you are suppose to be relaxing and enjoying yourself.

I used letters bought at Hobby Lobby. Painted them orange, traced and tore printed paper to fit the fronts and modge podged it on. It is a little tilted, my hubby is cutting me a board to set it up on so you can see the whole letter and that fits on the cabinet.
So simple to make but adds a fun touch to the kitchen.  I hope everyone that visits my house will go away with great memories of great times there.

  1. I'm a friend of Carrie's and I love your blog. I just wanted to comment that you made me laugh out loud! Your favorite vacation place is the beach and your vacation house is in AZ?!?! A little far from the beach, don't you think? Too funny! Thanks for sharing your creativity.
