Blue and White and Boxwood

Last week we traveled to Florida to attend our Class Reunion.

On the way down we stopped at one of our fav restaurants on our route,  to have lunch.

A bonus of this restaurant/inn is that it has a beautiful gift shop too!

So usually after I order my meal, I head to the gift shop!

It was there that I found a beautiful lamp that I could not leave behind.

I am not sure what spoke to me first . . . the design with birds

or the pretty finial. I just wish they had a pair.

When we returned from Florida and I set up the lamp in the Great Room,

of course it lead to the ripple or domino effect,

which truthfully, I enjoy! The domino effect also led to creating new vignettes of:

Spring Decor Details and A Treasure Reveal

Hello Dear Readers!

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,

Great Room Reveal Sneak Peeks

Hello Dear Readers!

I have been a little M.I.A. since the Monday Morning Blooms Valentine’s Day post.

We left last week for sunny Florida (with a little bit of rain)

as my hubby and the Boys of Summer had a tournament.

A Tournament of Champions and they won.

Now back home after being away for 6 days, I am trying to do some major catch up.

Today, in-between laundry and numerous other things, I took some quick photos to bring you the …..

The Winter Great Room

Hello Dear Readers!

I hope you are not in the BRRRRR zone of the country. It is cold here and we may get some

snowflakes, but right now, it looks like only freezing rain is in the forecast.

In a couple of weeks the Great Room will undergo a huge change.

So I thought, I need to show you what is in the room now,  before the transition begins.

I have been reaching into my stash to bring out some winter ambience

with pillows and accessories. There are only two small items that I found at my . . . .

you guessed it . . . . my fav consignment shop (Always Home).

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.

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.

Spring Pink in the Great Room

I bought a bouquet of flowers the other day along with a small Azalea plant

to place in the Great Room. Well that led to me thinking that it is time for a change.

So off to the linen closet I went, to see what pillow covers I can use for the room.

Since pink was the predominant color in the flowers, I gathered pillow covers

in various shades of pink and raspberry. Just what the room needed for a Spring Refresh.

Plum Love – A Great Room Refresh

Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone!!!

It’s all about love today. But truthfully, every day should be Valentine’s Day.

Every day we should have an emphasis on showing how much we love and care for

those in our lives. Of course, every day cannot be all hearts and flowers.

However, we can show our love for one another in so many ways.

Whether those ways be subtle like a kind note of gratitude, 

a phone call to a friend who may need someone who will listen,  

or something so memorable as a fistful of flowers . . . you know those that you may

have received from a child who gathered some wildflowers for you on their way home.

Today, this post does have hearts and flowers and some Plum Love – A Great Room Refresh.

Beyond the Doors

They say it is always good to have a second pair of eyes.

Eyes that see differently ….. from a different perspective.

This is exactly what happened the day of the photo shoot

by ShowSpaces Photography.

I noticed the photographer kept opening doors. Hmmm, I thought, for more light?

The photographer stated that you need to see what is beyond the doors.
