Master Bathroom Changes

Lately these days, I often think about how great it does feel to de-clutter and asking myself, “do I really need this?” These past few days, I have been working on closets and linen closets.

French Antiques Warehouse

When I travel with my hubby, and the Boys of Summer to tournaments, I try to research the antique shops in the area. I grabbed a Knoxville travel information guide at the Tennessee Welcome Center.

Simple Summer Blue and White Vignette

Before I left for Tennessee last week to join the Boys of Summer, I re-potted some topiaries into blue and white containers. I had been wanting to do that for a while now, and finally got around to it as I wanted to create a simple summer blue and white vignette for the French buffet […]

Summer House

As I fluffed the Great Room for summer I could not help but think about how I need to stage my home to get it ready to place on the market. I certainly do not need to bring in any things, but take away . . . take lots of things away. I love furniture […]
