Kitchen(s) of the week

I'm a sucker for a farmhouse sink.  That is why I couldn't pick just one kitchen image this week.  I love them all.  A farmhouse sink doesn't just fit in a country or cottage style home, its a great unexpected feature in a more contemporary home as well.  Enjoy browsing these images........

Christmas house

I'm sure if you spend any time on blogs, Pinterest, Houzz etc., you have seen this image but I just love it. Decked out for Christmas but not overdone. Perfect!  Merry Christmas y'all!

But the fire is so delightful.....

I can't believe Christmas is just a few short days away.  Hopefully you all have finished your shopping.  We're done here but we have a lot of wrapping & baking to do.  It's finally a little bit cooler so I thought these images of beautifully decorated fireplaces were appropriate.  Good tidings to you & yours.

baby it's..... warm outside?

Hey I thought it was December?  It has been unseasonably warm round these parts this week which is not making it feel very much like Christmas.  Every now and then I like a chill in the air & gray skies, especially this time of year. Here are some images to help you "cool" down....

Fridge Coasters in action

A couple of weeks ago we asked you to send us pictures of Fridge Coasters in refrigerators.  We got a ton of pictures, so each week we will post a new refrigerator featuring different Fridge Coasters.  This weeks pictures come from Brittany in Gainesville, FL.

Large shelf and bin coasters in yellow zig zag and polka dot

Door coaster in yellow tile

Keep the pictures coming and maybe your refrigerator will be featured next week.

Here's our pick for "kitchen of the week".......

LOVE the painted ceiling and the backsplash is pretty great too.

See y'all next week.  We're off to Northern Virginia to celebrate an early Christmas/birthdays with the family.

Weekend full of decorating

We certainly had a busy weekend.  Our house is decorated inside and out. We payed a visit to Santa; although Beckett was too scared to sit on his lap so we ended up taking a family picture instead of just the boys, & we did a little Christmas shopping.  Here are some pictures of how our house turned out......

Front door. Fresh Fraser Fur wreath
Added a wreath to our hallway and used the boys coat hooks to hang our stockings.  Ben made this shelf & hook combo a couple of months ago.  We will post the tutorial later.
This is just a simple wreath over the fire place but our dog Tregg posed for me so I had to post it.
I think this is my last year of having a "themed" tree. Right now most of our ornaments are bronze, gold or champaign. As the boys get older I'm sure we will have to add colorful lights and a few more ornaments to make it more "fun".
Beautiful tree lit up at night complete with a Lionel train.

Here are some of my favorite ornaments........

Can't forget the presents.......
This year I am using plain brown packaging paper and red velvet ribbon.  The paper is a lot less expensive then traditional wrapping paper and can be so fun to personalize.  These presents are for our nephew Jaxon and Beckett will have the chance to color all over them when he gets up from his nap :)

Here's to a happy and healthy holiday season!!

Kitchen of the week

We LOVE kitchens.  It's truly the heart of any home.  Each week we will post a kitchen that has inspired us.  Here is this weeks..................
Everything about this non-traditional kitchen is fabulous.  The color of the cabinets, the stainless island, the  quirky chandelier, need I go on?

These are Fridge Coasters we would pick out for this kitchen.  They play off the chandelier nicely, don't you think?

Thanksgiving prep

Thanksgiving is less than a week a way and if you have a new baby like we do, you just realized that this morning.  We are hosting 12 family members next Thursday and luckily my sister in law and I discussed the menu before #2 arrived.  However, we still need to get our house in order and come up with some type of table scape that is simple but put together.
I just finished making these place card holders and it was super easy.  I made them with supplies I already had lying around the house and it literally took me 30 minutes max.  In fact, both my boys are still sleeping and I have done two loads of laundry. Thats how quick this was.  So, if you need a last minute idea; try this out.

Supplies: Clothes pins, 3/8"ribbon, glue stick & scissors
Cut ribbon to length of clothes pin and glue on
Instant place card holder

Nice to meet you

Hi.  We are the husband & wife team behind Fridge Coaster.  My husband came up with idea for Fridge Coaster after we had our first baby.  Frankly, he was sick of scrubbing milk rings off the refrigerator shelves left behind from baby bottles.  Two years later his innovative idea has come to fruition and we've added another baby to the mix.
This blog is our (my) creative outlet.  We are self proclaimed "do-it-yourselfers" who love doing projects around the house and making it our own.  We will post everything from exciting Fridge Coaster updates to what inspires us to whats going on at home.  Please follow us on this exciting journey as we start our new business and raise two energetic boys!
This picture was taken about a month ago on vacation and our newest addition was still cookin'.

What the heck is a Fridge Coaster?

Welcome to our blog.  You're probably wondering what in the world a Fridge Coaster is? Well, it's the latest and greatest time saver.  Fridge Coasters have been custom fit to go inside your refrigerator door shelves, crisper bins or directly on the shelf to absorb all that condensation, grime and build up that happens over time.  What does this mean for you?  No more scrubbing your refrigerator.  Once your Fridge Coasters have handled all they can; simply toss them in the recycling bin and replace them with a new pack.  No scrubbing or cleaning.  In addition to the functionality they will make you happy.  We offer a variety of prints and colors that will liven up your fridge.  We like to call it "fashion for your fridge".
