Weekly Wow's- Stunning family room, Kitchen, Patriotic DIY ideas, Home renovation

May 23, 2015

Happy Memorial Day Weekend! With the hustle and bustle of end of school year activities, I am looking forward to just chillin out for the long weekend. It's funny how the last 152 days of the school year just kind of snuck right up there, and then in the last couple of weeks...... elevated levels of chaos all around.
 Hubby took the week off to embark on our biggest outdoor project in a long time. I am anxious to share the plan, and our progress next week with you.

With Memorial Day a few days away, this wreath should get you in the patriotic spirit..... 

My Spinning Succulent Centerpiece

May 21, 2015

I love a good challenge... product.... price. Who doesn't? And when Decor Steal's contacted me about styling a mystery product, that they would be sending me and another blogging pal, that I love dearly, I said why not....We got this!

And so ....the Industrial Vintage hardware spinner arrived.

Summer Front Porch Color of Year ...Yellow

May 20, 2015

I am not sure that my front porch got the memo about the color of the year.

Or if it did.... it just didn't care. Southern Porches are like that.

Marsala is not it's best color and besides, between you and me, could you see this porch in that color anyways? Nah

It's Summer Porch Season

May 19, 2015

The last couple of weekends, I have been dusting off the pollen, watering the ferns and getting the front porch ready for summer. I know I have mentioned this before, but we are big time outdoor people, so having outdoor spaces where we can sit and fun is really important to the family. 
I will be sharing this season's summer porch tomorrow, but wanted to stroll down summer porch lane with......
last years front porch here

and the year before here

And as much as I love the fun pops of color this time of the year, I try to blend the house color with whatever outdoor cushions I can find. This year, it's all about yellow and I can't wait to have you stop over. A side note, I am actually in the process of getting bids to paint the house this summer. I am leaning toward a very light colored grey/beige with white trim.

I am also excited to be joining 14 other bloggers and seeing their special outdoor spaces.

What's the favorite part of your outdoor sitting area?

See you back here on Wednesday!

Monday Musings- Patio Peek, Musical Rug, and Life Stuff

May 18, 2015

Hello sweet friends! It's the start to another beautiful week. I am actually in countdown mode. I have less then 120 hours and 13 mins to go before the fussing, fighting and chaos gets turned up a bit around here.... The start of summer Vacation. Yup, the kiddos get on Friday and in all honesty, I am really looking forward to hanging out with them this summer. 

I'm not kidding though about the fussing, fighting and chaos, that's an added bonus, that's why getting my outdoor spaces ready for some quiet time, is key around here.
