Garden Style

Hello everyone!

I realized that after looking at my bedroom and bathroom that I favor a garden style in there.  I love decorating with greenery and flowers.  

I recently received a green and white pillow cover that I ordered from Etsy.  I planned on using it with the monogrammed pillow.  I think it makes the perfect companion pillow.


After looking at pictures of my bedroom in my last post, I realized that a lamp with a burlap shade would look better in place of the pharmacy lamp on the other side of the bed.  


Do you do that too?  Things look fine in person, but then when you see them in pictures you see something "off".  That's what happened with me.  So, this lamp came up from the basement and now looks better than what I had in here before.

My bathroom hasn't changed too much.  It still has floral prints and a vintage cottage style that I love.  All with a garden style sensibility to it.




I noticed that when I looked out the window above the tub I got an interesting view of the garden below.


It's really coming along!  We should be able to harvest squash and tomatoes soon.  We have peppers and cantaloupe growing as well.  The peppers are already being eaten!

Oh.........and forgive me, but I just wanted to share something new in my garage now.  My husband just bought it for me yesterday.


It's a 2013 Ford Escape Titanium.  My newest love!  We are planning a day trip somewhere later this week to enjoy it.

Thanks for stopping by!

Congrats on the new car! I can't get over how clean and tidy your garage is! Ours is a mess. LOL! Love the burlap shade lamp and your garden looks great! My one little tomato plant isn't doing too well, but my mom brought over a ton of tomatoes from her garden, so at least I'm getting to enjoy hers. :) Your new pillow cover is so pretty!

The new lamp looks great there. It is true that you see things in pictures that you don't see in person. True and sometimes frustrating!

Your new car is great! It's very sleek and sporty.

Your new car is really pretty! I can see why it's your new love. Great color, too.
I'm loving your garden look in your bedroom and bath and the apple green pattern and monogram on your pillows. Your garden looks really good, too. We have a couple of squash that should be ready to pick today, but my peppers aren't doing a thing. Hopefully, the hot weather will help.
