My husband and I recently sold our home and bought a condominium. Over the past two months we have been making a few changes to our new home. Fortunately, we have had the privilege of being able to work on these changes while not living there. It has been really nice being able to walk away from the mess every night and not feel like I’ve had to clean everything up to keep from tracking throughout the place.
Over the next several months I will be sharing with you the various things we have done to put our own ‘flair’ on our condo. It is starting to finally feel like ‘our home’ and we can’t wait to move in!
One room that my husband and I decided we would redo at a later date is the kitchen. The kitchen is currently decorated with a French Cafe theme; complete with a boarder with French Chef’s riding bicycles, wall paper with French script, an awning that covers the sliding glass door to the deck right off of the kitchen, and the final touch is a fun little French Chef Statuette!
The previous owner left this Statuette, who is holding a dry erase board, for us with a note that read, “Happy Holidays”. Since then, I have decided that this is going to be a great way to leave a love note for my husband each day. This is the one I left for him last night. It read, “Welcome Home My Love. I missed you today!!!”
WOW! How much fun am I going to have with this!!! I can leave a fun message for the grand-kids to find whenever they come to visit, I can have a ‘welcome greeting’ for whenever we have guest over, I can leave a sultry message for my husband to find, (Ooh la la)… the list is actually endless! Who would have thought that something so simple as this fat French Chef could be so fun?
So now I need some help in naming my new little friend. I need something that the grand-kids can pronounce and something with a French twist to it. Any ideas???
Thanks for your help and I am looking forward to hearing ideas for my Chef’s name.
Perhaps you would like to incorporate a message board of some kind into your home?
My step-daughter and her husband, (their last name is Goodapple), have a chalk board in their kitchen and here is a message she wrote on it once when we visited.
Leave your name suggestions in the comment section! We will announce the name in a later post.
