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...]

I Can’t Resist: Kate Marker Interiors

Hey there, friends!  Monday again... yikes!  We enjoyed the most gorgeous weekend here in GA.  The hubs and I headed down to my in-laws' and got a few outdoor projects done for them.  It felt awesome to be out in the sunshine... and we are pre-pollen-explosion so we were basking in that, too.  It's a short window of time before the pollen gets bad, so I jacked up my own list of outdoor to-dos for this week as well.  Gotta make hay while the sun … [Read more...]

I Can’t Resist: Oriental Rugs in the Kitchen

Hey there, friends!  It's been a busy week for Legacy and RAIN RAIN RAIN for days, so a painting project I'd hoped to share isn't quite share-able today.  BUT... I did want to share a design idea I just can't quit these days...  oriental rugs in the kitchen. I was first intrigued with this a few years back when I spotted this image on Joan's blog for the love of a house... for the love of a house Which, by the way, if you don't follow … [Read more...]

This ‘n That Monday

Hey there!  I hope your week is off to a great start!  I'm still trying to figure out where the weekend went... I spent some time relaxing, watching TV and reading, whipped up a couple of chalkboard projects for the booth, and enjoyed a FUN girls' night out/sleep over with some dear old friends.  I intended to spend time shredding paperwork in my home office, but that seemed like no fun... and didn't get done. :) And this morning it's rainy … [Read more...]

In Case You Missed It: January

Well, a few days got away from me and here we are into February!  Yikes!  If you follow me on Instagram, you saw that I broke away for a girls' weekend at the beach and got the bonus fun of celebrating a dear old friend's 50th birthday at the same time.  It was a good time and now it's back to cold/rainy/busy days here at home. :) I've got a list of posts for y'all coming in the next few weeks, but thought I'd flash back to January today, just … [Read more...]

Family Room Update: The Rug

Well, I finally got the family room fit for photographing!  I wanted to share a few "in progress" pics, so y'all can follow along as I gradually tweak this space.

I'm just in love with the pattern and colors.  And it works beautifully with the pieces I already have.  Winner winner chicken dinner!  Click HERE to view sizes and prices.

Looky What I Found…

Wednesday!  We've been in the deep freeze here in Georgia with some snow and ice predicted for later today.  It is January after all! So I've had the fire lit and I've been working away on Legacy and getting my family room ship shape.  Well, friends, you know that one thing usually leads to another!  And so now that the family room refresh is under way it's on.  I'm on a tight budget but I knew I wanted a small ottoman to accompany these new … [Read more...]

Family Room Updates (A Peek)

Happy MLK Day, friends... I hope you are off today, snuggled in with a cup of coffee or tea and enjoying yourself!  I've been taking advantage of the long weekend in a big way... catching up on Legacy to-do's, working on reorganizing my office, reading, and even sneaking in a nap or two.  I'm still kind of low energy after my illness, so I've found I still need a little extra rest.  Let's hope it's not habit forming. :) Speaking of when I was … [Read more...]

What’s In: Pantone’s Color of the Year

During my recovery from my illness these past weeks, I spent a good bit of time poking around on design blogs and Pinterest...  it was a great way to recharge my creative batteries and scope out what's trending for 2016.  And it was hard to escape Pantone's color of the year:  Rose Quartz. refinery29 Pink!!   I have to say, I actually like this color but I wasn't sure how it translated to decor.  I most likely would not paint a room with … [Read more...]

Top Five in 2015

Hello, dears!  I pray you are all resting and reveling in holiday festivities with your loved ones.  It's hard to believe 2015 is almost in the books!  I thought this year would never end sometimes, and at other times it absolutely flew by with so much going on.  Maybe you feel the same?  Either way, I'm looking forward to all that 2016 holds and am spending these last days of 2015 reflecting, praying over the days to come, and contemplating my … [Read more...]
