Light and airy summer bedrooms

These light and airy bedrooms inspire me to change the bed linens for the summer.  It gives the room a cool feel.

Home grown

My hydrangea plant is blooming so well this year, that I just had to show it off.  Last year we had green leaves and no blooms, this year it is gorgeous.  I love them cut and put in a vase or jug as a centerpiece.

Casual dressing

I have been drawn to skirts and simple dresses this season as opposed to shorts.  They are much cooler and look so feminine.  Lands End Canvas fits my style for everyday basics and price.

Etsy Friday Favorite

I love to read Alli's blog, Hooray and always find new ideas and inspiration.  This week I was drawn to the  butterfly shadow boxes by Krystle Rose.

Krystie recycles bits of paper to make artfully arranged butterflies.  These are wonderful, one of a kind keepsakes.  Check out Krystle's blog as well.

I seem to be drawn to rooms that have lots of natural, creamy colors in them.  These are a few of my favorites.

Pool houses

As the weather begins to warm up, the pool is looking pretty tempting.  I'm loving these pool houses for the times we need relief from the sun and heat.

Happy Graduation Weekend

It is so hard to believe that our oldest is graduating from The University of Oklahoma this weekend!  The past four years flew by and we couldn't be more proud of our daughter and all of her hard work.  This is a special time to celebrate and be thankful.  Have a wonderful weekend.

Don't fence me in

We have two dogs that are used to looking out of the yard at all the activity in the neighborhood.  Since we moved, our new home has a solid gate and they are frustrated and can't see who or what is in the front.  I found these gates as alternatives to a solid gate.  Do you have any suggestions?
