Weekend Wows

January 31, 2015

Happy Weekend! I hope those friends that are up north have finally dug out of the tundra and can finally see where the car is parked. Can you believe all that snow! I hope you are staying warm and cozy where you are.

Thinking this could work somewhere in the house.

A creative idea from here to add interest and color to an otherwise boring beige or white washer and dryer. I love this!

I am writing this post and bundled up, as temps here in Georgia are 17.6 degrees out right now.That's a bit chilly for us chicks in the South. I am thinking that if it is going to be this cold then it might as well snow....right?

Glad I can check everything off this list. 
Can you, whether you are........ approaching 50 (like me), over 50 or not even close to 50?

Well, at this point you are either running around like a wild women.... or man, finishing up any last minute shopping, baking or decorating.....or sitting back and happy that it's all done and ready. Don't be a hater. I promised myself that this would be the most stress free December ever, and it was.

Speaking of last minute, I pulled together some ideas to get you through the next week...if you didn't happen to make that same promise.

Quick and easy treat. I had a get together recently and someone brought these yummy bite size treats.

School got out yesterday for the holidays, so yesterday for the class parties I put together goodie bags using dollar store bags, candy that I froze after Halloween and these super cute tags from here.

So much for just taking in December and just chilling out.....this is still going on BUT hope to have this room finished this weekend. At the 11th hour, I decided to add a pop of color in blue on the adjacent wall. This was last night when I was doing some trim work

Well, The good news is..... my Christmas cards got mailed yesterday. The bad news.... I ate more then my share in Christmas cookies!

If you listen to anything this weekend, let it be this. I promise, Amazing!

This week I was part of something more special then any DIY project parade. I joined some pretty special bloggers and shared what thanks at home means to us. If you missed any of it, including mine, it will be worth reading each of the incredible stories and messages. You can find the link here.

Oh my...... driftwood. This amazing creation from Craftberry Bush.

Happiest of Fridays to you. Hope you had a great week. We are in full blown fall season. Fairs, festivals and fall like temps are around us.  I am a tad bit excited about hitting the Country Living Fair today. I have been waiting for this event every since the moment I drove home from last years event. Should be a great time.

Speaking of excitement.....

Happy Friday sweet friends! Fallish temps are present in North East Georgia. How about where you live? This week I tried to do everything I could to avoid the news. Don't know about you, but the whole Ebola situation completely freaks me out. A virus that we know little about, limited to no vaccinations available, misdirection and innocent people getting infected....and some succumbing to this virus. What are your thoughts?

These amazing projects brought some well needed distraction from it all.

I love Ann's PB inspired fall wreath pillow.

I know, I am a bit of a slacker this week meeting up with you on a Saturday morning. I was suppose to show you the interior of the Lake House this week that I showed you here......but I will do that on Monday. No excuses....just this little thing we call life. 
Here's a sneak peak of the kitchen.

Happy Weekend!  Hope you all had a marvelous week. So, initially I was enjoying the no phone and internet access in the house but now it is going on 9 days and.... I am ready.  We had a most wicked storm that took out the transformer, our satellite and completely fried the TV in the den.  I have had to schmooze up to hubby to post a few things this week, and I am hoping that we are back on track next week. Until then, here's some things that caught my eye this week.... while on my phone in the car ride line.

Need to put these on the Christmas list.

Okay, shout with me Fri-Day, Fri- Day, Fri-Day!
Congrats, You made it through what I hope was a great, productive and happy week. Around here this week,  I am happy to report there was no loss of chicken life, an abundant amount of sunflowers peeking at me from the garden and my donkeys hee-hawing from the pasture. It's all good.

Speaking of which, here's some good ideas to get your creative mojo's in gear for the long weekend.

I love this idea of adding color behind the board from BHG

This concept is a bit too weird for me. Curious what you think.

Happy Friday Friends! It has been an amazing week. My mom arrived yesterday for an 8 week stay with us from Florida. Looking forward to having her here and being able to spend time with the kids. My niece drove her up so I will be spending time with her this weekend before she leaves on Sunday...sigh. 
Here's some amazing projects and ideas to get your weekend started.

 Happy weekend...well almost. Was it a great week for you, hope so. We are finally are getting some much needed rain this morning and I am packing it up to head to Asheville for a conference. Looking forward to driving up with this sweet blogging friend and chatting all the way up to the mountains. 

Wanted to kickoff the weekend with some amazing things that caught my eye this week.

If my green thumb continues next season, I may have to whip one of these up for the front of the property just like Andrea did.

Love the idea of a cover for the fire pit from here.

Something we all may need to know at some point...for some, multiple times.

I am thinking I am up for another wall paper project after seeing the color combination.

Something to bake for the weekend from here

I love this idea, using house numbers for drawer pulls. 

Have a great weekend doing what you love and surrounded by the people that you love!

Was it me or did this week just completely fly by! I mean, it just seems like last night that I was watching Andi Dorfman, the Bachelorette, sending that sweet Iowa farmer, packing for his cornfields back home. sigh. If you are a fan of the show, who's your pick?

Inspiration for your Weekend.

Amazing before and after bedside tables from here

Which house would you choose from here . This one gets my vote...although I could and would, gladly set up house in any of them.

My date night cocktail this week on my porch here from  Just Us Four

I recently installed an outdoor shower ( I will share soon) but I am thinking this would be super cool to have around it.


Ahhh...the benefits of chalk paint. Just ask my pal Sonya's coffee table. It will tell you.

Trying to squeeze in all the summer love and fun I can, as the kids go back to school in two weeks. What are your plans for the weekend?

For everyone who prays for peace whether it's for around the world, around our country, in your community or in your household.

Weekly Wow's- outdoor DYI cabana, bed idea, giant initial

July 11, 2014

Hope you had a great week. My sweet sweet children who haven't fought with each other, screamed at each other, spilled paint all over the garage, spilled red fruit punch on the floor and ate way to many snacks this summer, go back to school in 3 weeks, 2 hours 15 mins....but who's counting. Besides they are just so precious. 

Sometimes filling the summer calendar means including some lazy days to not do much, which is nice too, although those are the days that the above is more likely to occur.

Here's some amazing projects that I found this week.

Love this idea for beds from here

Isn't this the coolest thing ever. I am on a hunt for a 'J'. If you see one, let me know...please.

Looking for some shade? This may be the project for you this weekend. Details here.

Or..... you can do my version here.

I am attending the Haven Blogger Conference in Atlanta this weekend and super excited to learn and to catch up with some blogging buddies. 

Hope you have an amazing weekend. Have fun, be safe.

Happy Friday! 
Was it a good week?
Did you work smart, play hard and love more? Hope so...I did.
Hard to believe the month is winding down. I am hoping that July goes at a snails pace since my kids go back to school the 1st of August. Nooooooooooo....Not yet!

Here's some amazing stuff to get your weekend started.

oh it. all the details here.

When's the last time you put one of these in your hair?

Great way to infuse color in a white kitchen...colorful plates on the wall. From BH&G

PB inspired mirror from The Everyday Home

Yes please. I get a tad bit excited every time I look at this space. The blues, the mix of patterns, the windows, the art piece, the accent chair. 


Can't wait to pick some blueberries this summer, to whip this up.

Pretty cool picture. Makes me wish we were still at the beach. sigh

Have a wonderful weekend. Make sure to do something you love, surrounded by the people you love.

Weekly Wow's- bunting idea, home tour and more

June 20, 2014

Happy Friday friends. If you follow me on Instagram or facebook you may have seen this post this week
"I have decided that I will not clean the house until the kids go back to school...pointless."  

Well, I am on day 3 and so far cleaning. It is actually quite liberating and relaxing to see the house get "kidded up" and just sit back and watch. Ahhhh. I don't know exactly how long I can last, but I will enjoy it while I can.
Make sure to follow along to see my progress....and or my mess.
Here's a few things that caught my eye, while I was sitting around watching the house get destroyed this week.

I love this idea of using bandanas for bunting.

I want to do this in Lily's bedroom makeover

I love my white tees, so I am gonna try this 

How do your kids describe you? If you are a mom raising children...this one's  a must see. 

Beautiful home tour here

And I leave you this week with this.....

Have a great weekend doing what you love with people that you love....laughing!

Weekly Wows...Giveaway Reminder

June 13, 2014

Happy Friday. I expected to be in Washington DC this weekend, but due to a conflict at home, instead I am watching kid movies and cleaning up a paint mess in the garage. This my friends, is the twins interpretation of  "summer time fun". 

Lesson learned, do not leave unattended paint cans in the garage with very active 5 year olds ! "We just wanted to see what color it was mommy...honest"  The only reason I am not super upset is, repainting the garage floor is a summer project we are intending to do anyways, but thanks to the kids, we can cross that project off the list.

Here's some amazing projects that may make it to your list.

Super cute for kids wall, from here

My dirty laundry will look so cute in this DIY laundry basket from The Picket Fence Projects

I should surprise my kids one morning with homemade poptarts from here.

After I polish off a few of the pop tarts (it's bound to happen) , I just may need to eat this delicious looking Russian layered salad. 

Super cute...and clever, DIY outdoor garden clock art from My Sweet Savannah

Other than a few landscape chores this weekend we will be loving on sweet daddy. What are you up to? 

Have a fantastic weekend and Happy Fathers Day to all the dad's out there!

grateful for~
the kindness and patience from the best dad my kids 
could ever have
