The November Garden

Hello again and welcome to my garden in November.
Remember, this is my first year as a Southern gardener...
and I cannot get over all I have blooming this late in the year.

I worked all afternoon in the front gardens.

Not So Much A Dining Room....

Hello again dear friends...
Yes, it has been a bit since I posted!
Fall is a busy time with my girls and family.

Today I wanted to share my dining room.
It is right by the front door as you enter our home.
But I did not need a dining room....
So what did I do???
It's a pretty office/entry now.

New Wall Clock, The Fireplace and Great Room....

Just a quick update today...
 My hubby got the big wall clock hung for me...
I am loving it!
I found it at Ashely Furniture when we ordered the new couch.
It should be coming any day now...
It will be going in the study, the room with the pretty windows.
 I have the wires hidden on the fireplace now.
Were not hanging the TV, it might be replaced with a larger one.
I am looking for two lanterns for each side of the TV.

Finally --- The Brick Revealed!



So over the last couple weeks I've been a bit worried over our brick and how it would look.
Our new home is all brick, so this is a pretty big deal.

Because when it arrived it did not look exactly like how the sample we picked out looked.

Windows, Doors and a Roof!

Okay, here are a few pictures from today!
It's pretty amazing how fast it is coming together.
I've been told the inside won't be so fast!
But now you get a good idea of how the house will look...

First Pictures of the New House (Construction Updates #1)


After two months of getting approvals and such...
We officially began construction the middle of May on our new home.

This was the end of last week.... I shared this on FB and Instagram that they had started framing.
It was neat to see the rooms laid out.

Beautiful Day At Lake Guntersville, Alabama


Hello again and Happy Memorial Day Weekend!
My parents came down for the long weekend and
we headed down to Lake Guntersville, AL.

Lake Guntersville is almost 70,000 acres and about 30 minutes from our new home were building.

It is surrounded by mountains and wildlife... rocky cliffs and so many wonderful forest areas.
It has quickly become on of my favorite places.
This weekend we rented a pontoon boat for the day...
Here are a few of the beautiful lake houses we enjoyed....

{Saturday Shopping } 5/20/17




I am still on the hunt for unusual blue accents for the new living room area.
Amazon was quick to point out these pillow covers.
I love that they were a little different and will add some print to the area.
And they were cheap... less that $4 each... SOURCE.

{Simple Decorating Ideas} Adding A Touch Of Burlap



Welcome back dear sweet followers...
Today's idea is easy on the pocketbook and quick to do.
But these little touches are so fun and make a big impact.


Spring and Summer are my favorite seasons.
I love warm weather and the brighter colors we can add to our spaces.
So today I am taking a hum-drum little terra cotta pot and faux sedum and adding some country charm.

{Repurposed Furniture} Sweet Vintage Dresser


We've had much more spare time since selling our farmhouse...
And waiting on the new house to be done.
Spare time is not a good thing for me.
I think of too many things I want to be doing.
This is what I found last week.
This lovely vintage girl with a really bad paint job.
And she was CHEAP.... forty bucks cheap.
Do we have room for a project... no.
Do we have any room to store it... no.
But she came home with us.
