Master Bedroom and Closet Hickory Cottage Update

Hello Dear Readers!

As I stated in my last post,

I have a little Master Bedroom and Closet

Hickory Cottage Update for you.

This week, there is not a lot happening

at the cottage EXCEPT for the floors

The floors are being sanded and stained.

We were told that it would take a little

over a week to complete as the entire first floor

is all wood. No carpet in the house,

except for my hubby’s office and exercise room

which is the bonus room above the garage.

So I hope to bring you the finished floors soon.

100 Days of Letting Go and More Pink

You are probably wondering, 100 Days of Letting Go and More Pink? What does that mean?

I have always wanted to begin this project, however, just never got around to actually doing it.

A project that my friend Bonnie S. had done last year and is actually doing it again this year.

Oh yes, I would toss out things here and there, when the mood struck.

But, never sticking to the rules of the game.  Game?  That is what I am going to call it.

The “pink” will come later in the post.

How to Add Softness, Pattern and Pretty Texture to the Master Bath

Adding softness,  pretty texture and pattern to the Master Bath

was on my mind for quite some time.

One way to do that would be to add some pretty drapes

if you have a large window in your bathroom.

I have a large window; however, I have sconces flanking that window

which makes adding drapes a problem.

So what did I do? I added drapes to the shower doors!

In The Evening ~ The Master Bathroom

In the evening after a long day of activities,

it is always nice to know that I can have that Calgon bath to take me away!

12 years ago, when we were working on the plans for our house,

there was one thing that was on my “must have” list. A free standing tub.

A Mini Master Bath Makeover with {Pottery Barn}

My hubby had a softball tournaament in Myrtle Beach this weekend…

It was windy, rainy and cold.

So three of us “softball wives” dashed to the mall and of course to our favorite store, Pottery Barn.

Where we have our own “reserved” register…

They see Merry and I come through the door and just smile and make sure one of the registers is ready for merchandise!



I purchased those great new coral and sea inspired items from their new collection.


This is the before…I wanted to give the table a lighter feel.


I am working on this bathroom…giving it a bit of a mini facelift..

…..still have a few more things to do.


The jeweled jar with the coral top, the mercury glass bottle with the starfish topper…

…..and the mercury glass “urchin like” candle are Pottery Barn.


The blue finial was a Hobby Lobby purchase a couple of years ago.


I love the “jewels” on the bottle of the coral.




The silver bowl of shells and the hurricane were elsewhere in the house…and they moved here..




Another new item…

New rugs in front of the vanity…also from Pottery Barn.


I also found this beauty and it found it’s way to the register.

Felt like it would go well with the PB Lewis Paisley…


Love it!!

So we are finally home after being gone for 6 days and trying to catch up….

…..while enjoying the company of my granddaughter as she is on Spring Break.

Have a wonderful day!!!
