Easy DIY Graduation Gift

It's that time of year -- that May Madness!  We've been on a string of graduation parties and getting the house prepped for our own celebration later today and tomorrow.  And now I'm in the throes of a TON of Legacy business (woo hoo!) so it's a nice juggling routine we've got working around here.  I can't believe this guy is graduating!   And along with that comes all those other graduation announcements... and before you know it … [Read more...]

Front Porch Progress

Hello, friends!  I hope you all had an awesome Mother's Day last weekend... this week totally got away from me with Legacy "to dos", but I have managed to eek out a little progress on the front porch.  I have a breather this weekend so I'm hoping to get some more done out there, on the back deck, too, and tackle a couple of furniture projects for the booth.  Good intentions, folks! ;-) Let's revisit our inspiration photo for my … [Read more...]

The Meaning of Legacy

Hi gang ~ I hope your weekend was wonderful!  I had a great time at Lake Rabun with my in laws and a bunch of other "girls"... we had a such fun catching up and celebrating my SIL's career as an educator.  Here was my view each morning when I woke up... It was a good time for me to unplug for a couple of days, too.  I've spent some time over the last week or so thinking a lot about Legacy, so I thought I'd share a little of that brain … [Read more...]

Five on Friday

T.G.I.F.  And I MEAN that!  I'm ready to wind down this week, but not quite sure I'm ready to say goodbye to April!  #yikes  Thanks for sharing your thoughts on yesterday's porch plans post... I'm ready to get rocking on that bad boy. Today's Five on Friday is another dose of randomness but all good stuff... 1.  What Should I Read Next podcast.  Yes, another podcast, but it's another good one!  Anne Bogel from the blog The Modern … [Read more...]

The Front Porch Plan

This has been a busy week and I want to thank you all for your prayers... I have surely felt God's presence and His grace as I've moved through a few situations! I'm so thankful I serve a big God who walks with me, guides me, and shows His grace every day. Today I want to share my plan for the front porch... it's been QUITE a while since there's been a major overhaul (normally it's just fresh plants/pillows) and I'm itching to do that this … [Read more...]

This ‘n That Monday

Hello, friends and happy Monday to you!  I hope y'all had a great weekend.  If you follow me on Instagram or we're friends on Facebook, you probably saw the fun time we had at the Kenny Chesney concert in Auburn AL!  So fun on so many levels -- great friends, a beautiful day, a sweet ride over and back, and some AMAZING music in a happy place. Here's a few peeks... I needed this little 'getaway' for many reasons and it didn't … [Read more...]

Front Porch for Spring

Hello, Thursday!  This week is flying right by, isn't it?  We've been blessed with some great weather this week, but unfortunately the pollen is still a factor so I haven't made much progress on outdoor projects.  I DID get some weeding and cleaning up of the flower beds done though. :)  And we've set out our hummingbird feeder -- it's early for them, but who knows? What I REALLY want to tackle though is our front porch and back deck... we … [Read more...]

The Booth for Spring!

Hi there, friends!  I hope you enjoyed a great weekend - we had wonderful weather here, so I was on a spring cleaning binge.   I was hoping to tackle my front porch but we're still getting lots of pollen here so it's not quite time.  However, it's never too soon to plan so I'll be sharing some inspiration for my spring porch makeover later this week along with some upcoming furniture projects. But today I wanted to share my booth refresh that I … [Read more...]

Five on Friday: Random Thoughts

T.G.I.F.  Y'all.  The past few weeks have about done me in and I'm so excited to see the weekend, I can't even stand it.   I'm a little brain-dead these days, so I thought we'd do a fun Five on Friday of random thoughts and things that I'm enjoying lately.  Ready?? 1.  Deep South Details.  I feel like I've mentioned these gals before, but if so blame on menopausal forgetfulness!  I found this podcast last fall and fell in love with these … [Read more...]

Before and After: Dressing Table Makeover

Hello, friends ~ I didn't mean to be gone so long!  The last couple of weeks have been doozies around here, so I've fallen behind on the old blog.  But I've missed you and so I'm back. :) Today I'm sharing a recent paint project I completed and popped into my booth.  Remember this little desk/dressing table I was working on a while ago? She was painted just a creamy white, but I decided to up her fun factor with some Farmhouse Paint in … [Read more...]
