Sunflower August 🌻🌻

This is my kitchen accents for sunflower August. 🌻 I top off my fridge with a sunflower table runner. Then I added an amber colored pitcher with a sunflower wrapped around it and a green chippy stool. Next come over to my cabinet that I’m using for shelves because the shelves I purchased for there I decided to use for the bathroom. I told you I can never make up my mind 🤔. I used …

What, more sunflowers? 🌻🌻💛💛

I do a lot of sunflowers 🌻 wherever I can in August. This sunflower throw pillow is embroidered so it gives an extra visual appeal. The brown center of the sunflowers is highlighted by pairing it with a brown-fringed pillow. Nnow I was looking yesterday in Pier 1, and I spied some yellow pillows. I should have bought them, but I couldn’t make up my mind. I might go back and get them because I …

Finished Porch Project

A couple of weeks ago, I showed you a project that we were working on to redo our porch ceiling. We finished it, and I’m really very satisfied with the results. Here are some step-by-step pictures which show the progress. I added some curtains and plants; a twist and shout hydrangea which blooms from spring till fall. I love the color and the delicate petals. I don’t know about you but after a long winter, …

Inspired by Green Plaid

I love sitting out back. This view never gets old. This tree is amazing, and it only gets better with age. I bought this wreath from Michaels with a 50% off coupon bringing it to only $15. Next, I used some burlap from a different wreath and added two more burlap ribbons, one with polka dots and the other is a netting burlap, combined with some green ribbon to make a bow. Wow! What a …

Pink please💕

Pink is such a wonderful color. Everyone is going crazy this year with pink, and I don’t blame them. It has been a long time since pink has been so popular. 💕💕 I’ve just added a few touches go my sunroom. In front of my fireplace I have my wooden bird and a pink chair that I borrowed from my daughter. On the chair is a pretty pink pillow I just love it. 🌺🌺 The pink …

Baby Birds

The eggs have hatched! Oh look at the babies they are so cute 🐦🐦. The first picture is from two days ago, and this is from today. Now of course the mama doesn’t sit on them anymore, but she is close by. I was on my porch yesterday so the mother and father were conversing rather loudly. I guess they didn’t like me being outside. Well the weather is finally accepting that it’s spring. The …

Porch Ceiling Project

I’m starting a project of a new ceiling for my covered porch. The wood is a tongue and groove knotty pine. I’m using an espresso colored stain because I’m trying to get it to match my outdoor furniture. Well as close as possible. It is a little darker than I thought it would be since I’ve used this color on other things before. I’m not sure I can add a second coat because then it …
