It wasn't all shopping when we were on our girls' weekend. Nope, we took in some nature, too. My mom wanted to walk around a bit and she suggested Bonaventure Cemetery in Savannah. I mean what better place to walk around and enjoy the fresh air and some peace and quiet than in a cemetery? My mom had been before, but this was my first time. It is a huge very old cemetery filled with beautiful oaks covered in Spanish moss. Enjoy the photos I snapped.
I mentioned the other day that Mr. Savvy started a new project while I was out of town last weekend. I was hoping to not have this started until a couple weeks later since our son and his family are arriving for a visit next weekend. Since the mister was ready to start early, and it won't be finished before they come, I'm afraid we have a bit of a mess.
This is the first thing you see when you enter the farmhouse style guest room.
When I realized I was going to be fairly close to St. Simons Island while on our trip to Tybee Island I made it a point to go visit. You see I have a special place in my heart for St. Simons as I lived there for three years when I was a child and attended first, second and third grade at St. Simons Elementary which is still there. That is one old school. wink
This is a photo my sister snapped from the car of the house my parents built. This is a very old house, too. My parents chose this lot for that big oak tree. It was fun seeing the old homestead again.
Y'all know I love worn painted pieces and I love to collect so when I was sent this super cute cabinet from Decor Steals it was a win win and I couldn't wait to decorate it. First I had to figure out where I was going to use it. I had thought about using it in the guest room, but once I saw the size of it I knew I needed a different location.
The best spot for it seemed to be the sun room. This cabinet has hangers on the back to hang on a wall, but my home doesn't have many walls with all the windows and openings.
It's time to party again! I think I am caught up on my rest from my long weekend trip and the house is back in order for the most part. Mr. Savvy started on a project while I was gone and of course left a mess, but that is to be expected when a fairly big project begins. I really wanted to wait till the second week of March, but if the mister is in the mood to start then you don't stop him or it may never get done.
Last week I shared:
Here are some features from last week.
I love this pallet wood wall by Scavenger Chic. You should see the before to appreciate the change.
What a weekend I had and I am pooped! I did all the driving for FOUR days on a girls' trip with my mom and sister. My sister offered to help, but I just kept on going. We had a blast and while I recuperate I have just a few photos to share that I snapped when we stopped at the beach yesterday on the way home.
I love the look and the wonderful patina of very old breadboards. I have collected quite a few over the last couple years in all sizes. I thought I would share different ways I have used them in my home.
Has the top of your coffee table had the same things on it for a very long time? Then this post is for you. On Monday I shared several ways I have styled my coffee table/ottoman in the past and today I am joining a group of bloggers to show you more ways to easily refresh a room just by changing up your table decor. I shopped my house and storage room, bought some flowers, and in just a few minutes had a whole new look. I believe I am subconciously longing for spring with the touches of spring color I added.
A few weeks ago I shared this vignette in the foyer showcasing this beautiful rare ironstone punch bowl filled with a lush ivy plant. I knew I needed to disguise the ugly plastic pot, but I didn't get to it before sharing. So now I am going to show you how easy it can be done.
We had some icy weather on Monday and our yard is a mess and now the coldest temps of the year will be here on Thursday, but you know what? I won't be staying here. I'm headed south, where it is cold, but getting warmer by Saturday, on a girls trip with my mom and sister. I will be telling you all about it some time after I get back.
Since our last party I shared:
Let's look at some features from last week.
Cute and colorful little girl's room by T-shirt & Jeans.
My kitchen island cabinets paint tutorial is my most popular post of all time with over 415,000 views and it's my most popular pin on Pinterest.I get emails from readers with questions about this project more than any other and have gotten quite a few recently. I know I answered some of these several months ago, but here we go again.
