Outdoor Inspiration....


I hope everyone is looking forward to a nice long weekend.

We are hoping that the weather holds.

The last two days blue skies,


lots of skipping


happy faces.

The kids are almost done with school.

Ten more days!


Have you checked out Country Living's June 2011 cover issue?

Love everything about it.....

The blue and white curtains,

the gray rattan chairs,

the white pitcher filled with wild flowers,

the wooden tray with the ice cold lemonade

which I will replace


icy cold Mojitos and Margaritas!

It's my inspirational picture for this holiday weekend.

They wrote this quote on one of their pages,

"I had that familiar conviction
that life was beginning over again with the summer."

-F. Scott Fitzgerald

It's time to open up the house to the outdoors,

slide those flip flops on,

fire up the new grill,

load up the tub,

via Country Living

turn up the music,

create a night out in the backyard

for a movie and smores.

Have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend


family and friends.

Be back next week.

Take care,

I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day!

We had a nice time with our family and friends over the weekend.

The sun is out today and I took a picture of our front door.

I saw this cute French basket and thought it would look pretty.

It brings a smile when I drive up to the house.


Have a beautiful week and enjoy the outdoors.

Take care,

Fun Finds!


I stopped in at the Hexagon House

on Friday and found this.

I was so excited!



so comfortable.

I took my son to see if he could find some old coins

and the owner was moving new items into her store.

The first thing I saw was this

white slipcovered chair.

I knew it would be gone
if I hesitated.

It's sitting in the sun room

in a corner

in front of the wicker chairs.

I am still giddy over it.

It's everyone's favorite chair right now.

I get so excited when I find something so pretty for a good deal.

Here are some other great finds.......
