~Savoring Summer~

I know many of you are decorating your homes for Fall and some are tired of the heat, but we've had such beautiful warm sunny days here that it is hard for me to give up Summer just yet.

Nothing better than a tall glass of lemonade to quench your thirst on a hot day.  Enjoy! xoxo K.

I found this wonderful old box at a garage sale I attended this Summer and love everything about it.  The lettering and the worn wood are perfect.  It can be used for it's original purpose of storage along with being an awesome coffee table or side table anywhere in your home, porch or patio area.  It's one of those pieces that I bought to sell, but it might have to reside in my home for just a little bit, don't you think?

These little daisies are the wild ones that grow on our property and after the first round of their blooms are cut back some will produce a few more this time of year. They fit nicely in an old French bottle.

Have a wonderful week!

~Limelight Hydrangeas~

Good morning!  Summer is hanging on here with a beautiful sunny morning and temps in the 80's this week.  This time of year I hang onto these warm days because I know the colder weather and rain isn't far off.

I have three limelight hydrangea bushes and they were all loaded with blooms this year, but the heat was kind of hard on them.  I had to cut them all back, so decided to enjoy some of the  blooms inside for a while.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

One area I put them is in some crockware jugs on my primitive cupboard in the breakfast area.

My French breadboards are a nice backdrop for them.

Enjoy your week...♥

~A Sunny Summer Morning~

Can you believe it's the last week of August?  Where did the Summer go?  My girls will start back to school in a week, so we are trying to soak up the last bit of sun.  We've had beautiful weather this year and I'm going to miss it since there is a feel of Fall in the air lately.

I've had an abundance of hydrangeas this year and have enjoyed many bouquets in my home.  Enjoy! xoxo K.

I added this lovely weathered and worn crusty iron chandelier above my clawfoot tub a while back.  When we were building our home I wanted one there, but it was against code. This one needs to be rewired so I decided to just leave it and use candles instead.  Love the look it brings to my bathroom and the patina goes so well with my rustic ladder.

I have many shells and pieces of coral in this bathroom which gives it a beachy  feel.

My collection of apothecary bottles mixed with the sea life also resides in this room mostly on this shelf.

Enjoy the last of Summer!

~A Touch of Blue~

I've been loving a touch of blue lately.  Simple things such as blue glass bottles and jars  especially when filled with Queen Anne's Lace.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

I came across two benches at a sale I attended last weekend with the perfect blue color faded to aqua in areas from the sun.

All this combined with a rusty French bottle carrier and flower frog.

I must be hooked on blue because I just purchased an amazing primitive cupboard yesterday with this same blue and I LOVE it. Now I need to decide if I incorporate it and these benches into my home or sell them. 

Enjoy your weekend:-)

~By the Bed~

My love of French baskets continues and I knew I just had to bring this large one from Chris at Uber Chic home with me.  I wasn't really sure where I was going to put it at first, but it didn't take long for it to find it's home.

I've had many different things at the end of my bed over the years, but this might be my favorite and it will be perfect for holding extra pillows and blankets especially when the weather turns chilly.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

Another great purchase was this pillow made from a Swiss army blanket.  I've wanted one for a while now.

My butterfly bush is loaded with blooms this year and not only do I love to sit on my porch and watch the butterflies swarm to them, but I love a bouquet of them on the nightstand by my bed to enjoy the sweet aroma as the breeze blows through the window at night.

Have a wonderful weekend!
