Your Favorites This Summer


How was your weekend? Ours was hot, hot, hot with our air not working. I had planned to take some  pictures for a new fall post, but it's too hot to even think about taking pictures and it certainly doesn't feel like fall. The air repairman should be here today so I can start getting in the mindset of fall.

Summer is almost officially over and I am more than ready for cooler weather, fall color, the smell of fallen leaves and sweaters. While we patiently wait I thought I would recap my most viewed summer posts in no particular order.

I shared my mom's new home reveal which has had some changes since. We had to swap the bed out for an ugly hospital bed.

I hope y'all have a fabulous week and I'm just looking forward to getting this house cooled down and hopefully getting my mom discharged from the hospital.


  1. I love the painting added to the mantel in the great room.

    I think yesterday was actually one of our hottest days - very hot/humid. Apparently effects from Gordon. Was very windy too. I dread winter and while I am fine with Fall, it reminds me that winter is coming so I AM NOT READY. I hate the days will be shorter, I will have to wear long pants and SHOES (not sandals LOL). I much prefer spring/summer clothes to more layers. Oh well. I will make it through it! LOL Seems time passes so quickly anymore. We will soon be in the holiday season. No fall decor here yet, although I did actually see some pumpkins at the produce market this weekend. Hope they finally get your AC fixed!! And your mom discharged.

  2. I always love seeing your home each season and as you make changes. I especially love your kitchen, so pretty.

  3. I enjoyed seeing the most viewed, I remember each one! I hope your AC gets repaired today!

  4. Truly favorites of mine too!!!! Hope the AC gets fixed and gives you some relief....I think our will go out but for another reason!...Have a great day!!

  5. Your home is beautiful Kim and I get so much inspiration from your decorating style. I just noticed the floors in your kitchen and am wondering what type of hardwood they are ~ they are beautiful!

    1. Kathy, we had those installed many years ago and they are Santos Mahogony and were sold my Armstrong Hartco Flooring.

  6. Your home is always gorgeous for every season Kim. Hope your mom gets out of the hospital and is doing better.

  7. Loved seeing some summer snippets! Glad you a/c is working again!
