Wow Us Wednesdays #180

Welcome to Wow Us Wednesdays! I'm so glad you are here. I hope your week is going well. Can y'all believe it will be August in a couple days? Wow, where did July go? Summer is going by way too quickly. We haven't even been on vacation yet, but it is coming up soon and I can't wait.


This past week I shared: Mid Summer Farmhouse Style Guest RoomCreating French Country Style with Fabrics, and Some Changes in the Master. Along with the Favorite Room  and some Peeks at my latest project.

More Project Peeks


I wanted to show y'all a peek at a project that Mr. Savvy helped me with Sunday night. This is another part of the room makeover that I just painted. Yes, the man can do almost anything. :)

Changes in the Master

How was your weekend? Good and without any complications I hope. Well, if you follow me on Instagram then you saw what happened to me on Saturday. I was finally getting some things done to the back yard that have been put off way too long. One of those things was to spread the pine straw out on one of the beds. I had cut and pulled all the weeds from the bed and was spreading the pine straw. I was on about the sixth bale and all of a sudden I  was feeling hot coals of fire hitting my body in different areas and realized I was covered up in yellow jackets.
I was screaming and flailing my arms and knocking them off while running away from that area. Mr. Savvy and his brother were close by working in the garage and heard me and came out to help. My hubby knocked four off my back that were on my shirt and one off my shorts. They got my right hand and leg in about five spots. Hubby found a hole in the ground by the tree where they are living. Let me say they won't be living there much longer. I had also posted on facebook asking for remedies to stop the pain since what I had tried was not working and y'all came through with some good ones. Let's just say I tried three different ones and finally found some relief. Anywho I am sure I was a sight to behold running and screaming.

I sure am glad at the end of the day I have a restful place to go to. I sure needed a good night's rest after that. I haven't shared the master in awhile and I recently made a few little changes just to freshen it up.

Creating French Country Style With Fabrics

Another month has quickly shot by and now it is time for to talk about French Country style again along with four other gals and we are talking French fabrics today.
Using fabrics is such an easy way to add French style to your home. I have used many "French" looking fabrics and some actual French fabrics throughout my home such as toile, ticking, grain sacks and even checks.


This is vintage French ticking on this pillow in the dining room which is one of a pair I purchased.

For now I am giving you some peeks.

Mid Summer Farmhouse Style Guest Room

Do you know what happens when you bring in one new chair? The domino effect. Yep, after I got the new striped chair from the Pottery Barn Outlet for the sun room things have been shifting around. I gave y'all a sneak peek of some new pillows the other day and now here is how the farmhouse style guest rooms looks with a few changes from that domino effect.


The last time I shared this room it was decked out in red, white, and blue for July 4th. Now the blue has been removed and using what I had I have used mostly red and white.

Wow Us Wednesdays #179

Welcome to Wow Us Wednesdays. I 'm so glad your are here to share your new projects, recipes, room reveals, stories, etc. I have just started a new painting project this week in a room that needs to be lightened up a bit. Can you guess which one? Shirley, you be quiet. I'm sure I will have a reveal for you before long. Until then here is this past week's posts I shared.

 Now let's look at some features from last week.

Isn't this nursery pretty? This was decorated by my hair stylist for someone else and she just started a fashion blog called Glam Grace. Yep, she's the one who makes my hair look good and apparently can decorate, too.

Do You Own One?

It's National Hammock Day, but I can't go out to enjoy relaxing on the hammock since it is raining here today. I do love to hang out on our hammock when the weather is a bit cool and crisp unlike the very humid days we have now. Those cooler days will be here before we know it. How is it almost the end of July?

I was going to set up the hammock and style it differently, but the weather stopped that so I am using these old photos from 2012.

Real Life Ain't Purdy

Most readers think that because the front and inside of the house looks nice from the photos I have shared that the outdoor living space must be nice, too. Well, in our case it isn't and that is why I never share it.
