Mid Summer Dining on the Porch


H and I like to eat outside as much as we can during the summer.    It hasn't been quite as hot,  so I have the table set on the back porch for dinner tonight.

Moving Things Around


I have been busy redoing some of the wall decor around the house.       The big mirror that was on this wall became part of the new decor on a wall in the sunroom.

Weekend Treasure Hunt


The island looks kinda bare doesn't it....not too many treasures to be found over the week end!    We went to some yard sales on Friday and then drove to Lubbock Texas on Saturday  to go on a 62 mile long sale.

Odds and Ends Photo's




When we are out and about,  I use my phone camera to take photo's of  stuff that catches my eye.     I was cleaning my gallery up and noticed several photo's that I haven't used in a posts and thought I would share them before they get deleted.

The old truck you see in the photo above is in a little town about 8 miles away from where I live.   It sits in front of  a cute boutique.

Al Fresco Breakfast



I love to dine al fresco in the summer time,  don't you!  

BUT.....at lunch time it's too hot to eat outdoors and by the time it cools off about 9 o'clock pm.....  it's too late in the evening for us to eat.      

 So.....breakfast it is!

Summer Mantel


The mantel on the faux fireplace in the master bedroom still had Easter/Spring decor on it.......I think it's about time to put spring decor  away and create a lighter look on the mantel  for summer !

4th of July Tablescape


Today is the last day of June......the summer is just flying by!  

  I am having a pre-4th of July family tomorro as not all of them can come over the 4th.     Nurses, firemen, emt's....etc don't always get the exact day off,   so we celebrate holidays whenever we get a chance.

Garden Theme Mantel


The 4th of July is coming right up and  will be here before you know it!

   I started to design our porch mantel this morning  for our 4th celebration.....how do you think it looks so far?    Not much like a 4th celebration....huh?    More like a garden theme don't you think?
