Friday Goodwill Finds & Bittersweet

I will be on holiday for a week with my family and my daughter, Jessica, shared these beautiful pics of her upstairs bathroom remodel and thought I would share with my friends.  The reason I'm calling this post "Bittersweet, you see, this is the last remodel to my daughter and son-in laws, Tim, house, their first (WE OWN) house.  They have remodeled the entire house, kitchen, bathroom, laundry, painting all inside walls and trim, I could go on forever, alot of love, sweat, blood, lol!  So much joy in remodeling and adventure in a beautiful place south by the water.  Bittersweet because the service tells them where they must go but one day they will find their forever home.

Summertime Soiree

Dear Friends

Thank you so much for stopping by.  Today I'm sharing my version of a "Summertime Soiree"!  An elegant gathering at Debby's house, my deck that looks onto a pasture we have enjoyed for many years and a pool that I enjoy that I bought for my 50'th birthday!

Beautiful Summertime Rack

Dear Friends

Thank you for visiting and I hope you are enjoying your summer.  This simple coat rack was my Mother's and she had it in her bedroom and hung her gowns and muumuu's.  The little black purse she carried,  I gave it to her as a gift,  I chalk painted it pink, I have a corner that needed "Beautiful Summertime"!

Use to...

Hi Friends

Well it's August and I love it!  Back to school, I use to!  New clothes, teachers, schedules, homework.  Report cards do they still call them, report cards?  For all parents, kids and teachers,  I use to.  I love watching and listening to kids and parents talking about their futures making plans that will shape young lives, it makes me smile and I use to.  Don't get me wrong, this is a happy post!
