My Southern Summer Kitchen


Summer in my southern kitchen means lots of fresh fruits and veggies. I wish we had our own garden,but after trying out one in our yard a few years ago Mr. Savvy decided not to do it again. That's okay the fresh goods from the farmer's market work just fine for us.

Worth the Wait


I wait patiently each summer for our crape myrtles to bloom. This is when our front yard looks the best when these huge bushes are loaded with blooms. It seems ours bloom a bit later than most I see around in shopping centers and business parks. I don't know why ours take their dear sweet time, but they are worth the wait.

A Versatile Pillow and Giveaway


It's the weekend and we are going to start it off with a giveaway!
When I shared the summer master a few days ago I shared this wonderful new pillow on my bed. I had shopped in a local store and shared photos of the shop on the blog awhile back and on instagram. Well, the folks at Sugarboo and Co. noticed and offered me a gift and a giveaway of the same thing I chose for one of you. Y'all know what a crazy nut I am about pillows so of course that is what I picked.

Today I'm sharing how the pillow works in different rooms in my house because it's so versatile.

Beautiful Antiques at the Beach


This is the third summer we have gone on vacation to Destin, Florida with my daughter, son in law and granddaughter. We normally stay a week, but Mr. Savvy and I didn't make it down until Wednesday this time to join them so it was just short and sweet. I always make a point to visit my favorite antique shop while there and here are some photos I snapped with my phone.

Wow Us Wednesdays #283


Welcome to Wow! Last Wednesday we left to go to the beach for a few days. My daughter and her family were already there and we stayed with them for three nights. We spent time just relaxing on the beach and I did a little shopping at my favorite antique shop. It was a short trip, but much needed. 

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

It is porch sitting season and I love the new fresh look of Imparting Grace's front porch.

The Summer Master


In case y'all haven't noticed I love to make up a pretty bed and I like to change out the bed linens quite often to try out new looks. This summer my bedding is light and bright, but still has a pattern and subtle colors.
