Top Ten Posts of 2016

When I researched my Top Ten Posts of 2016, I was not surprised, yet surprised.

I am sure you know what I mean. Posts that I thought would definitely make

it in the Top Ten, did not and some that did, was a pleasant surprise.

I want to thank you,  my fabulous readers for your support in 2016,

and I will strive to bring even greater ones for you in 2017.

So we shall do a countdown, starting with the Number 10 post.

A New Year’s Blue and White Sunroom

Happy New Year everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful start to 2017!

My start to the New Year in my home is a New Year’s Blue and White Sunroom.

Actually I should say accents of blue and white,

as the wicker is a celery green in color.

But what goes well with green? …. blue!

Deck the Halls in the Sunroom

When the Holiday season nears, I look forward to planning on how I want to

Deck the Halls in the Sunroom.

It is a room that I feel I can have fun with whatever theme I chose

for the Christmas season.

I decided to dress the dining room in my favorite Christmas traditions.

With that decision, I decided to do the same in the sunroom.

Filling it with happy memories of the past and present.

Actually it all started with a tree, as in the dining room. A beautiful tree.

Fall Home Tour

As I start to gather ideas about how I am going to decorate my home

for Christmas, I wander about the house enjoying the Fall decor that I created this year.

For me, it is always sad to put away decor of the previous season,

however, exciting to bring out the decorations for the Season of Joy.

Before I put the Fall decor away, I decided to do a recap of my home for Fall this year.

It all started with the front porch.

bHome Fall Tour ~ The Sunroom

I love to be home in the Fall.

Why? Because as a former Florida Girl, I never experienced the true changing of the seasons.

It was always summer like. Well maybe a brisk day here and there in the winter.

I would have to make a special road trip to see Fall leaves.

However, now that I moved further north, the Fall has truly become my favorite season.

To be able to see the spectacular fall foliage from every view in my home

is such a beautiful thing!

Today, is Day Three of the “Why I Love to bHome in the Fall” Tour and I will be showing you

my Sunroom dressed for Fall.

There is also a wonderful Giveaway. A chance to win a $250 Amazon Gift Card.

Information of this giveaway will be at the end of this post.

Day 2 of the bHome Fall Tour ~ A Peek and a Giveaway

I am not sure now which season is my favorite as far as decorating is concerned.

I have so loved decorating my home for Christmas,

yet I am so enjoying decorating for Fall.

It just seems to be a bit more relaxing for me.

Adding pretties here and there of dried hydrangeas, pumpkins,

sheaves of wheat and the bounties of Fall in a pretty bowl.

Summer Touches in the Sunroom

I could not decide how I wanted to decorate the sunroom for summer.

Do I go coastal?

Do I adorn it with a summer garden theme?

Do I extend more of the blue and white into the sunroom?

Oh the decisions.

Less is More

Less is more . . . did I say that?

Well, while still fidgety recuperating . . . (and I must say that I am feeling somewhat better),

I roam the house. Being unable to do all that much, I just set my sights on what I can do

to start on my quest of “less is more”.

I started in the sunroom.

Oh wait, did I say less is more? I did buy this Spring trio of tulips, daffodils, and a hyacinth

and repotted it in a vintage McCoy flower pot. But it was a “replacement”

of flowers that were previously there.
