Bringing The Outdoors In

Hello Dear Readers!

Happy Monday and Happy First Day of July!

as I share wonderful floral inspiration along with my amazingly talented

Monday Morning Blooms friends, Lidy, Mary and Pam.

Our common theme today is garden urns.

Their beautiful images and links to their posts are below.

I have not done many outdoor posts since being at the Berry Patch House.

So today I am . . .

Bringing The Outdoors In

Into the sunroom.

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:

BLUE AND WHITE AND BOXWOOD

The Re-Designed Sunroom

Hello Dear Readers!

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

Re-designed? Yes . . . When the new furniture for the Great Room arrived,

we had to move the furniture that was in that room to the sunroom.

That meant a whole lot of shuffling going on!

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

The Sunroom Reveal at the Berry Patch House

Hello Dear Readers!

It’s been a while since I promised a peek of the sunroom at the Berry Patch House.

When we were moving in, all things that were in the category of

“I do not know where I am going to put this” …. went into the sunroom.

This room is a collection of things that do not have it’s “own home,” however,

it will different once we move into the “right-sized” house.

Please come in and see the Sunroom Reveal at the Berry Patch House.

This Week’s Happenings

This week’s happenings have been a whole lot of packing and moving.

I am sure you are not surprised!

Yesterday was our Anniversary.

I was surprised with a beautiful bouquet of flowers

that my hubby managed to sneak in without my knowledge

and surprised me with them when I walked into the kitchen early in the morning.

I posted it on Instagram/Housepitality Designs

We are two crazy people trying to move our things into the rental house

that going forward I shall call the Berry Patch House.

Patriotic Fridays with Tree Classics

Yesterday, I gave you a sneak peek of what I have been working on this week.

It’s a Patriotic themed white Christmas tree.

I am partnering with Tree Classics to bring you the Patriotic Fridays with Tree Classics Blog Hop.

This Blog Hop features a white Christmas tree that we have decorated

in a patriotic theme, inspired by the bravery of our beloved soldiers.

Soldiers who fought, and those making the ultimate sacrifice,

to defend and fight to preserve our precious freedoms

that we hold dear in this great Country of ours.

An Early Summer Sunroom Refresh

It all started with a pillow, then another, then more pillows . . .

isn’t that always the case in most circumstances?

You see a pillow that speaks to you. Then you know just where to put it,

thus the beginning of a room refresh and the shuffling of items around the house.

You take one piece from one room . . . place it in another . . .

then you seek another piece to replace the piece you took away.

And so on and so on.

The pillow(s) landed in the sunroom and so An Early Summer Sunroom Refresh began.

What Have I Been Up To?

I had full intentions of showing you my refreshed Sunroom for a little jump start to Summer.

It can truly double for Spring too.

Yes, Summer, as I think we may just go from Winter to Summer with the crazy weather

we have been experiencing.  However, the rain and gloomy days

have kept me from photographing the room.

So today, I thought I would give you a little bit of What Have I Been Up To?

I can honestly say that my life is always a bit on the hectic side.

There is always something going on, whether it be things going on around the house,

travels, and activities, and not to mention the occasional shopping excursions.

Let’s start with curing my Spring Fever by beginning to fluff the porches and yard.
