Simple Summer Style in the Great Room


I am really slow getting any summer styled rooms posted with everything that has been going on with my mom, but today I'm sharing how I have added simple summer style in the great room. It's basically the same thing I do each year bringing out my collected shells and coral and spreading them around. I have also changed up a couple of pillows from the what I used in my spring decor. These are all very simple changes that anyone can do for a new seasonal look.

For spring I had used some tan color pillows with the blue bird print pillows. I recently bought the blue checked pillows to add more of the blue I have been adding this year.

Home Style Saturdays


It's the end of a very busy and hard week and I'm looking forward to spending some time with my granddaughter while her parents are out of town. I'm sure we will make a trip to the hospital, too to visit my mom. Yesterday she was transferred from the trauma floor for a broken pelvis to ICU for an irregular heartbeat and high blood pressure. She was stabilized by the afternoon and resting. Hopefully better days are ahead.

Hopefully she will get to return to her new home. If you missed the reveal you will find the link at the end of the post along with all my friends links.

French Country Fridays


It's Friday so that means another installment of French Country Fridays where I and six fabulously talented friends share some archived or new posts all about French country style and inspiration.

 I hope y'all have had a good week. Mine has been a rather mixed bag. I shared my Mom's New Home Reveal at a assisted living facility last Monday and she moved in on Wednesday. At 2:15 am Thursday I got a call that she had fallen again and she has fractured her pelvis again. No surgery needed thank goodness, but it will take several weeks to heal. Hopefully she can return to her new place after she heals for a bit. It's been a rough year for her and us and we would love your continued prayers.

Wow Us Wednesdays #391


Welcome to Wow Us Wednesdays! First let me thank all of you who read my post yesterday about My Mom's New Home Reveal and the many kind comments y'all left. Many of you have either gone through the same thing or are facing this now. It's certainly not easy for her or us to make this transition and I hope she will be safe and happy in her new home. 

Here are some features from last week.

I always love seeing how Mary decorates her Cute Potting Shed and it is certainly putting on a show this summer.

My Mom's New Home Reveal


Today I'm sharing my mom's new home reveal that we worked on all day last Friday to prepare for her upcoming move. If you are a regular reader of my blog then you know my mother has been dealing with health issues this year that started in early February. After a couple of falls, hospital and rehab stays and then back home to only end up falling and breaking her shoulder we knew it was time for her to move on to the next chapter of her life. Assisted living should be much safer for her. Of course this is a very hard change for her, but we have made her new home nice and cozy using some of her furnishings from home and a new bed I ordered for her. Thank goodness my mom was smart enough to buy long term care insurance many years ago. These places are quite costly, but we will have peace of mind knowing she is safe.

All of this was in her home except for the new table lamp from HomeGoods.
