Simple Pleasures~Fresh sheets and Square Corners

Several years ago I had asked my husband what really makes him happy and he told me "fresh sheets."  He worked over the road for many years and this simple statement really stuck with me.  I change the sheets on our bed weekly.  Laundering them so they smell fresh and clean always is a top priority.  This simple pleasure continues to please my husband to this day.

A Fiesta Tea Party Ole`

It was a wonderful night for a tea party.  Recently our church in Florida had an international night tea party.  Each table presented a representation of a tea party from a different country.  It was quite a unique array of tea tables.  A good friend and I planned a tea table from Mexico.  Of course, my love for bright colors fit right in with the theme. 

Magnolia~Blessed to be the Recipient of a Giveaway!


I feel quite honored to have been the winner of a magazine subscription giveaway from Marcia of an inspired PHOTOJOURNAL.  Marcia has beautiful photography on her blog and it is a joy to visit. 

Magnolia is such a beautiful magazine.  I am somewhat of a magazine aholic-if there is such a word!  It could not be more perfect.  

Thank you, Marcia!  I am sure she would love to have you come visit.

A Re-purposed plant holder




I have a new favorite thrift store.  I had never been in a Habitat for Humanity thrift store until this last weekend.  There are some wonderful treasures to be found!  Such as this vintage copper with metal flowers plant holder.  It has a wonderful pink chippy patina.  It has found its new home on our coffee table.  Re-purpose at its best!

Simple Pleasures~How to make a color Palette



Simple pleasures can come from any source.  Such as this beautiful hibiscus flower.  It's beauty only lasts for a day.  What glorious color and beauty for 24 hours.  This beautiful show of color is certainly profound yet simple.  Wouldn't it be great to capture these colors in your home?  Maybe a color scheme for a room or maybe a paint project.

The Fruit of the Spirit~A Ladies Retreat

It has been a privilege again this year to design for the ladies retreat at our church here in Florida.  The chosen theme for the retreat is ''The fruit of the spirit."  Soft colors with a punch of black and a vintage feel are the choices for the creations.
