It’s here………….Saturday

It’s 69 degrees, low humidity, with a high of 81 degrees on this next of the last day in June, and SATURDAY! What could be better!? I wanted to share another aspect of why I love home – my baby Mason, and grand-dogs Murphy and Maddux. They’re even happy to call it home!

One of the best things about summertime is spending time with the girls, enjoying cucumber and cream cheese sandwiches and homemade cherry limeade – and floating leisurely in the pool.

Living room part 2

I’ve finally gotten a picture up here of how I have put the loveseat between the two windows. This area is open concept and definitely not HUGE, but it’s a screen door and windows away from beautiful trees, sunrises, and nature. This redo enables me to put a small wicker chair in the grouping and it’s all much more conversational for a little company!

I’m new at this stuff!

ImageImageImageImageImageI’m new at this blogging stuff – as you can tell.  I thought I would attach some pictures of my house and its surroundings.  The house is on top of a hill (obviously) at the very back of a nice neighborhood.  It’s actually on the one street that I swore I would never live on!  I looked at the house and fell in love with the woods surrounding it as well as the long deck along the back.  It’s a perfect size for me and Mason too!

Changes…..

I’m always looking around and trying to make things even better. I live with things for a while and decide if it works or not. My daughter commented last night that she likes the arrangement in the living/family room but she knows not to get used to it! I also get frustrated when I can’t get it just right….but I keep trying. I’ve had such a love/hate relationship with my living room. It started out with wood floors and a dark “persian-type” rug. It’s now a sisal rug. I went from a dark brown love seast to a goldish tan mid-century couch, back to that same dark brown love seat. My room isn’t large. Some might even say it’s pretty small. But the major problem is that one wall has a fireplace, one wall has 2 windows and there are no other solid walls. Not easy to decorate!

On the next post, I’ll upload pictures of the before and after. I’ve also ordered a natural rattan coffee table bench to take the place of the too dark ottoman (which was fine with the goldish-tan mid-century couch but is too dark with the dark brown loveseat).
