Thankful Thursday

I am SOOOO Thankful for my new faucet, sprayer and soap dispenser!!! You have NO idea! I am working on the kitchen little by little and this has made a huge difference. Before, the faucet dripped leaving yucky rust stains since we have well water with lots of iron in it (we do have a water softener and use those rust remover pellets, but it doesn't take it ALL out). So every time I scrubbed my sink, I felt SUPER discouraged because I knew in the morning it would have nice rust stains in it all over again. So I didn't scrub it as often as I should have and I wasn't motivated to keep my sink clean (first step for FlyBabies!). Then there was that nasty orange caulking around the sprayer and the little spigot. That stuff was AWFUL. I was so glad to get it removed, I had to use a razor blade and then some Goof Off (LOVE that stuff!!) and it thankfully came off pretty easily. Alright, so here are the before and after pics.

Ahhh! It just feels soooo much better! And I haven't had to scrub any rust out for the last week and a half! Yay! Oh and I really love that little soap dispenser - no more having a soap bottle on the counter and its so handy to just give it a little squirt right into the dishwater when I am doing dishes (that's right, we don't have a dishwasher, boooo).

So now....anybody have any suggestions for a new back splash? I hate that stuff that is there now, and the counter top will be getting a makeover as well...soon, very soon, so make sure you watch for those upcoming posts in the near future. This is my new fall project, so I will be posting some before pics of the entire kitchen. We have a wee tiny budget so its gonna take a while and some creativity, but we will get it looking better!

Very nice! We have well water, too, and no dishwasher. I refuse to get one until we get city water in the next year or two.

I would be thankful too! We have been slowly making changes in our house...never ending, but always feels so good afterwords!

By the way.. I have my Find Me Friday up tonight!
