MY FRIDAY FAVORITES





BLOG POST

BOOK CASE
Sherry Hart shows how she displays a bookcase, step by step. She is the queen of bookshelves!! A post worth reading.


ROOM

BLUE BEDROOM
Jennifer from the Pink Pagoda blog posted this image, and I fell in love with the room and the fabric. I found out later in the week the fabric has been discontinued so the hunting began, need I say more?


SAYING

ATTENTION


OUTFIT

leopard coat.


OUTDOOR SPACE
Garden gate as a planter, brilliant idea! also the fabulous garden path and all the beautiful plantings!!!
Love the plant hanger on the gate.

DIY WORTH DOING

Map #decoupage on wood #letters that spell out beach. More decoupage ideas on Completely Coastal: http://www.completely-coastal.com/2012/06/map-decoupage-ideas-for-canvas-dressers.html
The reason I named this, “Worth Doing,” is because I am not much of a DIYer so it realllly has to be worth it for me to do it.

I think this would be such a fun summer decorative item if you used a portion of a map that showed one of your favorite places to visit in the summer. Mine would have to be Carmel, California. What would yours be?

HOUSE

Low country cottage, love this style of home shell and chinoiserie: Seaside style with an Eastern accent


RECIPE

RECIPE
Next trip to the grocery store I am getting the ingredients for this delicious  recipe.

HEALTHY LIVING

Once a week for 20 minutes, sit in a hot bath that contains a handful of Epsom salts, 10 drops of lavender essential oil, and a half cup of baking soda. This combo draws out toxins, lowers stress-related hormones, and balances your pH levels. ~ Dr. Mark Hyman, M.D.
Detox with a 20 min bath of lavender oil and soda.

PRODUCT
Scented Vinegar
VIA

When it is all said and done it is all about how we feel about life on the inside.

Thank you for these beautiful thoughts Kathysue. We are a lot alike. I adore that outfit, and when Jennifer did her post with that bedroom I was in love. How can they discontinue such a gorgeous fabric!

Great links KathySue and if you check on Etsy there are lots and lots of affordable map letters. BTW..Carmel and the Monterey Peninsula is my hometown so I agree that would be my choice for a map!
