Let it Snow

My backyard last year!


Can you believe we had light snow here last night? I'm not really ready for snow, but it got me thinking about something I added to the blog a year ago.  Want to add some subtle snow to your blog?  Go to Design-Add HTML Gadget & add the following text:

Loving the Look

I love when I get the new Gorsuch catalog. Their style is so classic, although pricey. Some of my favorites:







Love that purse.   Wishing you a fun Friday & weekend!

Best Leather Cleaner Ever!

I found this link yesterday on Pinterest and can't believe it worked.  Have some leather that needs to be cleaned? I just used this on a leather chair & it worked great.  Click here for the info!

P.S.  I tried this with some $1 foam carpet stain remover from the Dollar Tree. Guess what? It worked amazing too!

Shutter Update

In our master bathroom, we have a little problem. Since we put the Timbertech deck outside the bathroom window, we needed to make sure the view into the bathroom was not visible.   I was inspired by this pic from Tobi Farley's master bath makeover where she used a shuttered window:


Here are some pics of how it looked 'before':

This was an old shutter that I've had up for a L-O-N-G time!

This is the window from outside. Hmm, a possible update to the blinds in the bedroom? !!

Enter our new plantation shutter that we ordered from Lowe's:


And here it is all installed. I like that it looks more simplified & a cleaner look from both inside & outside:




Problem solved.  Happy Thursday to you!

Table ♥

Our dinner party last Friday night was a hit. The napkins turned out great (thanks to my SIL Lisa who stitched them up for me!) & we had lots of fun!   This was my pinterest inspiration pic:


And the table all set & ready to go:





Now, back to the grind.
Happy Monday!

Linking up to the Tablescape Party @ Centsational Girl!

Fun Chairs

I have a friend who sent me a picture of a chair she has in her house that she wants to update with paint & fabric.  That got me thinking about a great way to show her some fun options & I thought of pinterest.  What a great way to use this website to 'pin' some favorite chairs that have been updated. Here are a few options:

How about you? Have you used Pinterest yet for inspiration?  It's a great resource. 
Wishing you a fun weekend & TGIF!!
