My Favorite Things

Hello everyone!

Amy from Ms. Toody Goo Shoes invited me to participate in her new "Favorite Things" series.  I was so honored to be invited!  It's a new series that each blogger gets to share whatever type of favorite things they want.  Mine are quite simple though.  Everyone can probably relate to them.  Here is a sneak peek of one of mine.

I hope you will hop over to her blog and check it out!

Thanks for visiting.

Bringing Light and Other Changes into the Foyer

Hello everyone!

I've been on a big "change" kick around the house this week.  The summer bug has bitten me!  I want all light summery fabrics and colors around me right now.  So, I made a few changes that say "summer" to me.  In my foyer, I didn't have any lamps.  So, I quickly remedied that by adding a wall sconce and a table lamp.

A 50th Birthday Party with Friends

Hello everyone!

How was your weekend?  Did you have a nice Father's Day yesterday?

  We went to a friend's 50th birthday party on Saturday night.  It was at their new house in the country.  They bought a fixer upper and have done a great job on their house.  I think my favorite part was their new brood of chickens!  They have quite a large flock too of about 16 total.  Two of them turned out to be roosters too.  Their property has several acres and came with a few outbuildings on it.  One of them was turned into a wonderful chicken coop!  Check it out!

This building has 2 rooms.  One holds their chicken supplies and the other opens into the indoor part of the coop.

Summer Blues and Greys

Hello everyone!

Hope you're having a good Friday.  Do you have plans for Father's Day this weekend?  We will have a busy weekend between a birthday party on Saturday for a friend of ours and Father's Day celebration on Sunday.  

I made MORE changes to my color scheme in my family room, yet again!  I found these soft faded blue, white, and grey floral pillow shams from Shabby Chic and decided I wanted to try out some soft blues in my family room for now.  It can be dangerous when you have such a neutral space to work in because anything you see will work in it! Since, I like to change things up a lot, I take full advantage.

Creative Pillows

Hello everyone!

Over the weekend, I decided to make a few changes to my home.  It was just too hot to go outside (despite our subdivision pool opening up).  So, I was looking for a way to bring a cooler feeling to my rooms.  I first brought in some pink peonies and pink cherry blossom branches.

What's Been Catching My Eye Lately

Hello everyone!

How is your Friday going so far?  Mine was busy taking my son back to the orthodontist for a correction on his new retainers.  He got his braces off the other day, but couldn't wear his retainers because they didn't fit properly.  Ugh!  I will be so glad when all of this orthodontist business is over.  Not much longer to go though.  

I ran across a new magazine recently that I decided to purchase.  That doesn't happen too often these days since I am satisfied with blogs, Pinterest, and Instagram for most of my inspiration.  

Here it is.
