My New Kitchen Design

Hello Dear Readers!

Well, I have stated that I continue to make changes with regard to the house.

I know I am making my builder a bit crazy, although he never shows it … well maybe,

with a “look” from time to time…but he is not the only one that I am probably

making a little nuts …. My cabinet guy … He is so much like my builder and takes

every change and questions with a smile! I definitely think it’s the laid back

attitude here in the South… Whatever the reason, I am fortunate to have a great

builder and cabinet maker that have a sense of humor…you need it with me.

Just ask my hubby!

Here are some layouts of the kitchen design. Get your readers out!

Master Bedroom Refresh With Blue and White

Hello Dear Readers!

It’s been a very hectic week here dealing with decisions, decisions for the new house.

Seems as though when I think I pretty much have it all together,

then something comes up . . . like a higher estimate than anticipated,

then back to the drawing board to make more decisions.

In the meantime, I found some time to do a bit of a refresh in the Master Bedroom.

A Great Find – Chelsea House Mirror

Hello Dear Readers!

Happy May Day!!!

I am hoping I can find some Lily of the Valley to give to my loved ones.

Did you know that it was a tradition in France 

to give your loved ones Lilies of the Valley on May Day?

And speaking of France  . . .

A few weeks ago, I discovered a beautiful Trumeau mirror at my fav consignment shop.

It was love at first sight. However, being that we are building a new house,

it has been suggested that I only spend what I need for the house.

I did not “need” that mirror, but on the other hand,  I did.

It would look wonderful over one of the mantels or the powder room.

Are you enjoying some great Spring weather? We are enjoying it here

with less pollen and blue skies and fabulous temperatures.

Since Spring is in the air, I decided to place some Spring decor in the Great Room

of the Berry Patch House. It all began with a pair of my treasures that I brought home

from my Road Trip to Boston to see Amy (Maison Decor). If you missed our Road Trip,

Our Antiquing Road Trip – Destination Maison Decor

Hello Dear Readers!

It’s been a while as I have been  pretty much on a week long road trip.

I love road trips especially when it involves meeting friends and antiquing . . .

and I must say that I love road tripping with my hubby too!

Last week, my hubby had to go to D.C. on business and I tagged along with him.

We arrived in D.C. and the very next morning, I drove to New Jersey

to pick up my friend Mary Alice formerly of Chateau Chic blog

and now and Rare Corners and her Rare Corners Instagram.

I left D.C. around 6:30am and arrived at Mary Alice’s around 9:30am and we then began

Hello Dear Readers!

Today I want to show you the re-designed sunroom at the Berry Patch House.

That meant a whole lot of shuffling going on!

So come on and see . . . THE RE-DESIGNED SUNROOM.
