A slight change in plans

April 22, 2015

Happy Thursday! I know it's been  a bit quite here this week..... and for good reason. In a totally last minute change of plans, I decided to extend my visit to S.Florida to spend a few more days with my family. But no worries, I'll be back next week.
Until then, make this the best day of your life.

Weekly Wow's- Farmhouse Bathroom makeover, Cutest Pillow Kits, Gorgeous Bedroom transformation

April 17, 2015

Happy almost to the weekend! I hope it's been a good week for you and those around you. We are getting our usual April Showers here in North East Georgia, which is good thing as it is washing away the yellow pollen that is on EVERYthing. I am somewhat unmotivated to freshen up the patios because next day, everything is coated with the fine yellow dust again. How's the pollen where you are?

Oh my....gotta get me one of these pillow kits. Too super cute from my friend Linda

This is gorgeous in every way. The ceiling, the walls, the room.

Spring Time At Duke Manor

April 14, 2015

There is no place I would rather be, then outside at home, on a beautiful Spring day somewhere on the property with my husband, children, and the critters.These pictures around the farm, capture more of who I really am, what I love and what fills my heart.

 My husband and I bought this property 13 years ago during a casual Sunday drive. Once we walked it we knew, well... he did. Fortunately my husband had the vision beyond what we saw that day. Where we would put the house, the shop, the garden...... but we both knew that this would be a place that we could raise children, enjoy the outdoors and create memories.

Happy Weekend. 
Last week while I was on Spring Break, I changed zip codes to  and never got a chance to tell you. I have a feeling something may have gotten lost in translation with the changes updating my feeds, so I wanted to share a few posts that went out after the change, that you may or may not have seen.

My Black and White Bathroom makeover here

my Simple Spring Mantel here.

I wish I was this brave to pull off something like this... but I'm just too chicken.

Spring Simplicity.... on the mantel

April 9, 2015

It seems the less I fuss about life and stuff in general lately, things just have a way of working out and I feel more content. I have always considered myself a 'go with the flow' laid back kinda gal, particularly when we moved out to the's just the way it is, but lately that feeling is really resonating with me and in particular with the decorating choices that I am making around the house. How I styled my mantel for the spring season, is a pretty good example of that. Simple, uncomplicated collection of white water pitchers ..... just pretty.
