My Pedestal has Finally Met it's Match

Hello everyone!

Just recently, I stumbled upon this beautiful glass bottle at HomeGoods and decided it was too good not to bring home.  I knew right where it was going to go too.  

Right here!

Share Your Style Party #24

Hello everyone!
 
How is your week going so far?  It's another hot and humid one here in GA.  I actually set up a fan on my front porch so I could sit out there in this heat!  It seems to help.  Summer break is winding down and school will start back next week.  Whaaaaat?  It seems every year that school starts back earlier and earlier!  I don't know about you, but I'm looking forward to Fall.  Cooler temps, college football, and Fall festivals can't get here fast enough.  But, we haven't even gotten through August yet so that will have to wait a while. 
 
In the meantime, I'm ready to see what all of you have to share this week!  Amanda from Dixie Delights is your host this week.

If At First You Don't Succeed.........

Hello everyone!

You may recall. last month, that I tried my hand at growing succulents.  I thought they would be a cinch since they don't need much care.  Also, my confidence was high since I was able to grow orchids and most people have trouble with those.  But, it was not meant to be.  I may have over watered them because the soil kept looking so dry.  Or maybe they didn't get enough sunlight since I didn't have them close to a window.  But whatever the cause, I gave up on them.  

Here they were in their glory.  (May they rest in peace now.)

My Sitting Room

Hello everyone!

You may recall that I moved my blue painted chest of drawers out of the foyer and into my sitting room.  I just realized that I haven't share that with you yet.  I made a few changes in here along with moving that piece, so here is how it looks today.

 Here's a few features from last weeks party...

I love hydrangeas, and the Hydrangeas at Cloches & Lavender look great in their first year.




The nautical anchor tote by Reduce, Reuse, Renewed is a great storage solution for any beach home.




Sunflowers signal the warmth and sunshine of summer. Check out Here Comes the Sun(flowers) at Everyday Living.




It is so HOT here back in NOLA that the Fresh Limeade from Life of a Southern Mom would be so refreshing.

Painted Dresser

Hello everyone!

I hope you're having a good Monday so far.  It is just too hot here in GA to go outside and do anything! So, I've been staying inside with the air conditioning.  How about you? Is the summer weather nice or unbearable where you live?  

Since it has been unbearable outside here, I took advantage of being inside and painted the dresser in my guest bedroom this weekend.  I'm so glad to have this project done because it was so tedious!

A Charming Chalk Paint Store

Hello everyone!

Recently, I went to the cutest store to buy some Annie Sloan chalk paint.  This paint is only sold at certain stores, and luckily this store is very close to my house!  It's called Brushstrokes by Maryanne. 

I was completely smitten with it, as soon as I walked in, because of the attention to detail that it was given. 

There was this charming dining table and chairs (painted in chalk paint) for sale.  And check out that industrial style lighting and gorgeous settee!
