Isn't This Profound?


Isn't this profound? 


I'm taking a little break from blogging. 
hould have posted this sooner. 
No time! 
My dear mother who will be 83 on the 24th is visiting us. 
We spend all our days talking up a storm and what not.... 



I'll be back! 

Take care, sweet friends.

Vignette Day~



Good Morning! 

Woke up this morning, stumbled out of my bed and it popped in my head that I'd blog about a vignette or two, maybe three today! 

I'm going to call this "Vignette Day!" 

Oh my, I do get a kick out of arranging and re-arranging and arranging... 

Here are a few~ maybe a bit more- 

Be thankful I'm not going to tell you everything about each vignette. I could with sheer excitement and I could easily get carried away. I'll spare you all since it's Monday and I've only had half a cup of coffee! 

Excuse yourself as soon as you've had enough! 



























Have a great day!

Inspired By Color~

I love yellow. 

What can I say?? True!


I've loved yellow back since the early 70's. Do you remember when the trend in yellow or golds were fancied up and called harvest gold and remember the color that went with it? Avocado green! 

I like to refer to the colors as pumpkin, harvest yellow, you know, warm earthy colors!

Well, I'll keep this short and sweet and my plan is to share some lovely photographs that I found in an old Better Homes and Gardens Book. 

This did crack me up. A question in the book was, do you have visual tension in your house? 
I think not! 
Humm, allergy headache?  Maybe it's the visual tension in my house! 

Well, here's a quick look of some of my favorite rooms that are in my old book! 

 The mixed patterns...love them!!
Those stripes are just the best! 
Yellow, love it mixed with that glorious hot pink!

Nothing like yellow sunflowers adorning a tablescape! 
Oh my, that scrumptious looking loaf of bread reminds me of the very few times 
I would bake "homemade bread!" 

I'm crazy about the pattern in that comfy looking chair. 
Minus the fruit in the pattern-
Ottomans are just the best!
  
 Isn't this a dream?
I enjoy decorating our beach home. In my dreams.
Love the crisp look of blue and white~
Awesome trunk too.

 Cozy outdoor space...
Great patterns on that sofa!
Sunflowers make any space look inviting~

 Is this not the sweetest room you've ever seen?
Soft pink and green...
Love the stripes and polka dots...sweet roses.

 Okay, I'm all over those plates! 
That's about to happen in my blue and white guest bedroom.
Just have to start collecting blue and white plates!
Love that chair, pattern is wonderful with the touches of yellow.
Yellow walls. Check!

I can't choose a favorite space, love them all! 

Have a great week!
