A New Project in the Yard


Our front yard looks pretty nice, but the backyard is a different story. After hurricane Irma came through last year and took down some trees it has left a mess in the back. Eventually we will get to the area that still has tree trunks to move and lots of landscaping to do, but we need a couple of dry weeks before heavy equipment can be used for the clean up and the changes can be made. So far we have been too wet. So while Mr. Savvy waits for a dry spell to tackle what really needs to be done he has started a new project in the yard and it is really looking nice.

Instead of having pine bark chips in the beds around the back of the house he is replacing it with river rock. We had a truck load delivered and little by little he is taking up the mulch and spreading the rock.

Wow Us Wednesdays #388


Welcome to Wow Us Wednesdays! I hope your week is going well. I'm still visiting my mom in rehab as her shoulder continues to heal and I had to take Miss Bailey to the vet again for more stomach issues. She'll be fine after a few days of antibiotics and probiotics. I believe she is having issues due to stress from me being gone more than usual....poor baby. We're going to start a product to hopefully help with her separation anxiety.

I can't believe next Monday is Memorial Day already. I hope y'all have a fun long weekend planned.

Let's look at some fun summer features from last week and get this party started.

Vintage Paint and More shares a full tutorial to make your own chalkboard art.

My Home's Paint Colors


I shared my home's paint colors a few years ago, but many rooms have been repainted since then so today I'm sharing my current colors since I get asked all the time about the colors in different rooms.
You can click on the highlighted links to see the full posts.

All the paint is Benjamin Moore. I use their Regal paint line on the walls in matte which is between a flat and eggshell and I use semi gloss on all the trim and the color is Chantilly Lace.

We will start in the FOYER.. This color is French Canvas and since our floor plan is open this color goes up the stairs and in the great room.

Open House Tour, Outdoor Ideas, Remodel and More - Home Style Saturdays


It's Saturday and finally the day of the big royal wedding. I had Xfinity set to record it since 5 am is a tad early for me unless I'm not sleeping good. If so I just may have been up watching it live. 

French Country Fridays - Casual Spring Sunroom


I'ts already Friday again and I hope y'all have some fun plans. Looks like it may be a wet one here and Mr. Savvy has started a project outside that he can't work on if it's pouring rain. I'm sure I will be spending time with my mom at rehab as her shoulder continues to heal. 

This week for French Country Fridays we are going in my casual spring sunroom that has been given a bit more French country style this year. You'll find that link below along with inspiration from my friends.

Wow Us Wednesdays #387


Welcome to Wow Us Wednesdays back at it's original time on Tuesday night. Tonight we are picking up my son at the airport so he can visit my mom/his grandmother tomorrow and then he flies back home tomorrow night. It will be a short visit, but it will be good to see him again and my mom is looking forward to his visit. Hope y'all have a great week.

Let's look at some features and get this party started.

I love how Kris at Junk Chic Cottage has created a sweet conversation area in her living room.
