Amy from Ms. Toody Goo Shoes invited me to participate in her new "Favorite Things" series. I was so honored to be invited! It's a new series that each blogger gets to share whatever type of favorite things they want. Mine are quite simple though. Everyone can probably relate to them. Here is a sneak peek of one of mine.
I've been on a big "change" kick around the house this week. The summer bug has bitten me! I want all light summery fabrics and colors around me right now. So, I made a few changes that say "summer" to me. In my foyer, I didn't have any lamps. So, I quickly remedied that by adding a wall sconce and a table lamp.
How was your weekend? Did you have a nice Father's Day yesterday?
We went to a friend's 50th birthday party on Saturday night. It was at their new house in the country. They bought a fixer upper and have done a great job on their house. I think my favorite part was their new brood of chickens! They have quite a large flock too of about 16 total. Two of them turned out to be roosters too. Their property has several acres and came with a few outbuildings on it. One of them was turned into a wonderful chicken coop! Check it out!
This building has 2 rooms. One holds their chicken supplies and the other opens into the indoor part of the coop.
Hope you're having a good Friday. Do you have plans for Father's Day this weekend? We will have a busy weekend between a birthday party on Saturday for a friend of ours and Father's Day celebration on Sunday.
I made MORE changes to my color scheme in my family room, yet again! I found these soft faded blue, white, and grey floral pillow shams from Shabby Chic and decided I wanted to try out some soft blues in my family room for now. It can be dangerous when you have such a neutral space to work in because anything you see will work in it! Since, I like to change things up a lot, I take full advantage.
Over the weekend, I decided to make a few changes to my home. It was just too hot to go outside (despite our subdivision pool opening up). So, I was looking for a way to bring a cooler feeling to my rooms. I first brought in some pink peonies and pink cherry blossom branches.
How is your Friday going so far? Mine was busy taking my son back to the orthodontist for a correction on his new retainers. He got his braces off the other day, but couldn't wear his retainers because they didn't fit properly. Ugh! I will be so glad when all of this orthodontist business is over. Not much longer to go though.
I ran across a new magazine recently that I decided to purchase. That doesn't happen too often these days since I am satisfied with blogs, Pinterest, and Instagram for most of my inspiration.
