More Beautiful Summer Inspiration for the Home and Garden

I have been swept away by the most wonderful Summer inspiration of all things Home and Garden

this week from the bHome Summer Tour of homes.

I want to give you some of the great inspiration and some creative ideas

that I have seen this week ~ ~ This will surely Wow you!


Vanessa from At the Picket Fence

shows us how beautifully you can add a summer coastal feel to your decor.


I always swoon whenever I see Anita’s Kitchen ~ Cedar Hill Farmhouse

French Country Cottage

Someday I wish to have an outdoor fireplace like Courtney’s ~ French Country Cottage.

Courtney is always creating the most enchanting tablescapes outdoors in front of her fireplace.


Stephanie from Garden Therapy is a garden expert.

I always look forward to her wonderful gardens and her tips.

This play garden is outstanding!


Oh that Marian, aka, Miss Mustard Seed. View her home in one post!

Amazing and maybe I can talk her out of that fabulous blue hutch!

~ ~ and those chairs, and the horse and ~ ~ 

shabbyfufu patio

And can you just imagine dining under the trees surrounded by this beautiful landscape

of Janet’s of Shabbyfufu.  This creates fond memories of the many years we used to live in South Florida.


Beth of Unskinny Boppy presented her parents’ gorgeous and lush backyard patio and pool area.

I am crushing over that exquisite garden gate!


Amy from A Healthy Life for Me presents a beautiful table in her tour.

I love her so very healthy lifestyle and how she inspire others through her blog.


The very talented Lucy of Craftberry Bush granted her son’s wish for “real” fruit, like pineapple

and Lucy decided to embellish her dining room with them. Beautifully done.

And you know how much I love pineapples! And by the way, Lucy created that beautiful bee

that is on our logo for the bHome Summer Home Tour.


Mary Beth of Cupcakes and Crinoline gives us a tour of her sunroom dressed for the summer.

She has decorated it with many treasured family items and vintage decor.


Love, love this table by Heather from SettingforFour.

I love her dining room and tablescape and of course the rest of her home!


I met Kerryanne through bHome. She blogs at Shabby Art Boutique

She lives in beautiful Australia on the beach

and this is the rainforest she walks through to get to the beach. Paradise!

And last but not least, I shall give you a peek into my friend Yvonne of StoneGable farmhouse

set in the most bucolic of settings near Lancaster, PA.


This is her family room and the mantel she created with her no-sew burlap stars.

You have seen just a snipit the eye candy from the past two days.

And if for any chance you missed my Summer Home Tour you can see it HERE.
