irons in the fire

Happy fall y'all! OK, so maybe fall hasn't officially started but my pool is officially closed and my swimming suit is put away so in my mind, fall has begun.

Thanks to all who gave their two cents on a paint color for my little table. You had so many great ideas I kinda wish I had about four more tables so I could try them all out. I did make a decision though and got the sucker painted before the rain set in.

I hope everyone had a fruitful Labor Day weekend (if in fact you celebrate said holiday). I got a ton of work done, both on my house and for others. Here is a sneak peek of some of my work in the office. She's so close to ready for her close up. Soon my friends.

And I learned a valuable lesson - put something on Craigslist for free and suddenly you are more popular than Kim K. I had 43 text messages and 25 emails within the first hour. I felt like I was manning the phones at the Jerry Lewis telethon. And a tip for any of you looking to wheel and deal on CL - if the listing says TEXTS ONLY, NO phone calls, don't leave me several voicemails. They will be promptly deleted.

Today is a big day in the Little Black Door household as my baby starts pre-school today. So I'm off to take lots of pictures and then pretend to leave her confidently at school only to sneak behind a bush so I can peek at her thru the window.

Why do they grow so fast?


  1. can't wait to see the table, and YAY for your big girl! and i left you a v-mail about a free listing on craigslist and never heard back- wtf? ;)

  2. What a cutie! My little baby got on the school bus for Kindergarten today. *sniff sniff*

  3. What a happy face!!! Good luck with the drop off, as I'm sure you'll be in good company with other moms peaking in the windows. Lol....
    Your last post really got me thinking about addressing my office. It's in sad shape, and it could be great!!! So I'm following along with you as you inspire me, and I'm sure others, to step it up and get her done.
    Many thanks,

  4. What an adorable little smiley face! So cute

  5. Ack! She's such a cutie!!! Looking forward to seeing the office in all it's glory! xxx

  6. Can't wait to see the office and what a cutie pie! Yes they grow up way too fast!:-(

  7. Sorry I'm late to the party - I vote black. Good luck leaving that cute little face! :)

  8. Cannot wait to see the office and your little one is precious!

  9. I'm always amazed how people fail to read the details--no matter how clearly spelled out they are--in a Craigslist posting. Seriously.

    Also, seriously, how cute are your girls?!?!

  10. Um.... I totally did that once. The watching through the window thing :D In my defense the path went right pass the classroom window so how could I not check in on her!

  11. Looking forward to seeing where you went with the table! And how cute is your little one?! Hope she has a great first week!

  12. Can't wait to see the transformation…hoping the first day was great!! She's adorable ~

  13. Cute kid and all that....but I don't think that desk was painted "my color suggestion". WTH kind of game are you playing:). You are lucky I am not your neighbor or you would wake up to toilet paper all over your front yard. I take this crap pretty serious. 😎😎😎


I love it when you sweet talk me! It makes my day!
And please make sure you leave an email address so we can keep the convo going.
