What’s Going On at Our House and Some Christmas Favorites

Happy December! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving and are enjoying the start to the holiday season. I’m sharing this photo from our living room last year because, as you may know if we’re connected on Instagram or Facebook, we’re undergoing some renovations at our house. Last month we had the popcorn ceilings removed […]

Fall Favorites

Last Thursday was the first day of fall, so all of us who call that our favorite season can stop sneaking mums and pumpkins into the house and enjoy the fact that fall is officially here. To celebrate, I’m indulging in pictures of some of my favorite things about the season. I love blue and white almost as much as […]

A Summer in Pictures

Hello friends! I didn’t intend to take the summer off from blogging, but here it is closing in on the end of August already. I kept waiting until I found the time and motivation to take some good photos and organize some interesting posts, but you know how that goes. So instead I pulled some photos […]

Vintage Jars and Spring Blooms

A few years back I picked up some vintage dairy jars at an estate sale. Since that time I have pulled those jars out a number of times to hold flowers or silverware, and I always enjoy them. So when I ran across this small, vintage honey jar at an antique mall recently I happily added it to the […]

Spring Colors and Weekend Links

I’ve been craving color lately, so I added a little to the family room to welcome spring. Blue and white always works, so I added this Delft lidded jar, which was an estate sale find, to the mantel in the family room. And when the forsythia started blooming, I clipped some branches to add next […]

Happy New Year

I hope you all had a wonderful New Year. Our celebration was quiet. Very quiet. As in we stayed home and watched football and neither of us made it to midnight. We did have a New Year’s Eve lunch at a favorite restaurant, where I couldn’t help but sneak a pic of their gorgeous dome. My […]

Christmas at Our House

I finally got around to taking some pictures of our house at Christmas this year on this, the gloomiest of days. If you were a reader of the blog last year at this time, these pictures will look very familiar as I decorated much the same. But I promise they are all new pictures. One […]

White Holiday Flowers

Confession: I haven’t done a bit of Christmas decorating yet. I only got all the Fall/Thanksgiving things put away last night. And technically this post is about Thanksgiving flowers, but I’m calling them holiday flowers to make myself feel better. White flowers are my favorite, so when I was buying flowers for our Thanksgiving table I decided […]

Pin It

Late Summer Patio

I spent some time last weekend sprucing up the patio, which had been showing lots of signs of late summer neglect. My motivation was Monday night’s book club, which we had to move indoors anyway because of high temps and humidity. But I’m loving the freshened up patio, even if I’m mostly looking at it from my kitchen window […]

Simple Father’s Day Idea

Happy June (I know, I can’t believe it either). With Father’s Day coming up, I’ve gathered pictures of our fathers and grandfathers on our entryway table. I also do this in May with pictures of our mothers and grandmothers. It’s the simplest thing ever but I love seeing the faces of all of these special people together […]
