There's nothing quite as exciting as closing on a new home—and nothing like it to leave you feeling dirt poor. Earlier this month we closed on a house that we were smitten with at first walk-through. But as nearly perfect as it was "as-is," we were going to have to drop more money on window treatments, paint, furnishings, and decor.

Ka-ching!

So hubby and I decided to fix this house up taking a "never pay full price" approach and we're proving that there are ways to make a house a home without breaking the bank—and shopping Fab is one of them.

If you're new to Fab, check it out. I've been scouring the site for modern, affordable, high-design additions to our new digs. 

This week my focus was on the kitchen.

This blue kettle caught my eye. Perfect for the "French provencial" look I am aiming for. Clearing counter tops has been a priority and this knife block fits perfectly into the draw. And wouldn't this bad boy look good in that knife block? [swoon] I've been the coolest mom on the park bench this summer sipping my home-brewed iced latte from a glass Ball jar topped with these neato lids. And check out this cutting board for OCD chefs (like me). What a hoot! And lastly, I'm sure Julia would approve of my weilding this French rolling pin—superior in my opinion to any other pin out there.

If you like Fab's style, sign up for their email newsletter to be the first to know about their one of a kind finds. Inventory moves swiftly so if you like something don't hesitate to pick up YOUR Fab find—fast.

This post is in partnership with Fab.

Your mention of mitochondria prompted me to suggest 'Minding my Mitochondria' by Dr. Terry Wahls who overcame progressive MS and went from being confined to a wheelchair to walking and bike riding through diet. You might find it an interesting read. I find reading about other peoples challenges and accomplishments often lead me to another step in my own cure for osteoarthritis. Thanks for sharing your journey and continued good luck.
