What I’ve Been Up To and a Winner

Hello Dear Readers!

It has been very busy around here at the Berry Patch House.

What was left of Hurricane Michael paid us a visit.

Lots of my friends had lost power but we were lucky. . . .

just lots of tree debris . . . much more than Hurricane Florence.

My thoughts and prayers are still with those whose lives have been so devastated

by the horrific fury of Hurricane Michael.

One of the things that I have done was make a one-day trip with my friend Kristen

to the High Point Fall Market in High Point, NC.  We packed a lot of showrooms in one day.

I visited one of my favorite showrooms, Eloquence

and saw my bed (that is in storage now)!

Today is a bit of what I’ve been up to and a winner.

The winner of  Nora Murphy’s Country House Style book is revealed at the end of this post.

Berry Patch Great Room Reveal

Hello Dear Readers!

Let me start off by saying that my thoughts and prayers are with those

who are in the path of Hurricane Michael. Hurricane Florence was so devastating to many

and I know so many friends who were directly impacted by Florence,

so those of you who may be impacted by Hurricane Michael, please stay safe.

Looks like the hurricane may be coming our way; however, by the time it does (if it does)

I am sure it will be just a windy rain storm. Hopefully with not much rain as we surely

do not need any more!

So on a lighter note, I present to you the Berry Patch Great Room Reveal.

It is an area smaller than our previous home, but we are adjusting well.

Nora Murphy’s Country House Style Book – A Giveaway

Hello Dear Readers!

It’s been a while. I took a break to travel with my hubby and the “Boys of Summer”

to their National Championship Men’s Softball tournament that was held in Vegas.

They won the National Championship beating a team from California;

however, they lost the World Championship opportunity to a team from Canada…

It was a great game….overtime and all….and they lost by one run.

They truly did great. The trip to Sedona (again but loved it) was great ….

Climbing the “Red Rocks” in a Pink Jeep and taking a small bus tour to the Grand Canyon

was also fun. Even though we had done it a few years ago, you always see something new.

So now I am back and trying to catch up! So to celebrate on behalf of the

“Boys of Summer” I thought a giveaway was in order.

When I learned that my sweet friend Amy’s  (of Maison Decor) home was being featured

in a new book by the author Nora Murphy I knew I had to order

one and would want one of my readers to have the opportunity to enjoy one too.

So here we go: NORA MURPHY’S COUNTRY HOUSE STYLE BOOK – A GIVEAWAY

The Partial Great Room Reveal – Fall Peeks

Soon after I created my Fall Apples Floral Arrangement

I began to add some Fall touches to the Great Room at the Berry Patch House.

Today you will see some “sneakie peekies” of the Great Room.

I shall later present a full reveal of the room that I put together using some pieces of

furniture that were never in my previous home’s Great Room.

Even though the Berry Patch House (our rental home)

is over 1,000 square feet larger than our previous home, some rooms are smaller,

such as the Great Room, so I had to be somewhat creative.

So here is the Partial Great Room Reveal – Fall Peeks.

Falling for Apples – Floral Friday

Hello Dear Readers!

I want to begin by saying that my thoughts and prayers are with those who have been

so adversely affected by Hurricane Florence. Such tragic conditions that have impacted

not only our beloved State of North Carolina, but our neighboring states too.

We have been blessed to have not lost power or have any significant damage.

We have dear friends in South Carolina and Virginia that still have no power and

dealing with the rising waters. We are awaiting our friends from Jacksonville, N.C.

to evacuate to our house as soon as the roads clear for them.

So hopefully our Floral Friday will be a little bit of a bright spot in these times.

Today’s Floral Friday theme is Fall Apples.

I am joining my lovely friends, Lidy, Mary (Mary has also been in Flo’s path) and Pam

to bring you another Floral Friday filled with ideas that you can create for your own.

Their most beautiful images are below for the greatest floral inspiration!

Links to their posts are below their images.

So here we go . . . we are Falling for Apples – Floral Friday!

Fall Porch

Hello Dear Readers!

I know it is not quite Fall yet; however, I purchased Fall mums quite early.

As soon as my favorite garden center, Dales Greenhouse in Sanford, N.C., brought out

their mums, I was there lickity split as I was participating in a Fall Tour hosted

by the lovely Angie of Postcards From the Ridge.

I was to present my Fall Porch on Friday; however, I was a bit concerned that I would not

be able to participate much if I lost power due to the storm; therefore, 

I had to bow out at the last minute.

So here I am today, presenting my Fall Porch.

The first decorated porch of the Berry Patch House.

Fall Reminiscing, Florence, and a Winner

Hello Dear Readers!

I have been busy with hurricane prep, glued to the Weather Channel and believe it or not,

been making my front porch of the Berry Patch House pretty for Fall,

just to take it all down and put it all safely away.

I have to say that it is my favorite of all Fall porches that I have done.

Time willing, in between hurricane preparations,

I hope to have it posted on Friday….so stay tuned.

In the meantime I will give you a sneak peek of it at the end of the post.

Today it is all about Fall Reminiscing, Florence, and a winner.
