Red, White And Blue Style and More


It's the holiday weekend and what folks call the beginning of summer. I'm sure there are lots of outdoor activities going on and a lot of cooking out. Below is a photo of my deck last summer dressed in red, white, and blue style and in the links below you can revisit my patriotic sun room from a couple of years ago. 

Happy Memorial Day weekend!

What I'm Loving.....outdoor spaces


Yesterday we had the most amazing cooler weather, but it was a bit windy. Nonetheless I enjoyed sitting outside on my deck after finally cleaning the windows out there that I could reach. I love being outside when it isn't blazing hot and thick with humidity.
 So today what I'm loving is outdoor spaces.

Where It Was First Intended to Be


As y'all know I change things on a regular basis around here. When I purchased this cow art last year it didn't work in the breakfast room like I had hoped. It was too small and sort of lost on the wall so it moved on to another room and then another. Well, after having the new trim installed when we updated the kitchen I had a hunch it would fit properly and it does. So now it is where it was first intended to be.

Wow Us Wednesdays #327


Hello wowzers! I hope y'all are having a good week so far. We are having a rainy one, but our yard really needed it so I'm not complaining. It's not like I can go out and do much anyway. I have had to watch the mister mow the yard every week now and normally that's my job. I love to work in the yard and I'm itching to get back out there. Hopefully my foot will be back to normal in a few weeks.

Let's look at some features and I hope y'all have a fabulous holiday weekend!

Bonus Room Guestroom....take two


I revealed the bonus room makeover in early March and a couple of weeks after that I actually changed the room up again. I was ready to reveal it several weeks ago, but then the broken foot happened and I couldn't get upstairs to take pictures. Well, now I can finally slowly go upstairs and today I'm sharing the bonus room guestroom....take two.

An Easy Change for a New Look


A very easy way to update a lamp is with a new shade. While I was looking through my Matthew Mead magazine, Upstyled Home outdoors, last month I found a cute shop on etsy called Lampshade Lady and I just had to take a look. I love to swap out lampshades for a new look. I discovered the cutest ones on this site and just had to order one.

This one had me with the grainsack stripes.
