  Summer is flying by isn't it? I kind of hate that! Today I have some pretty pictures to show you of my parents' back porch and deck styled for the summer. These are some of my favorite spaces, and pretty much always where our family spends time when we get together in nice … [Read more...]

Happy end-of-October, friends!  This is a post that I wrote just over three years ago, when we were living in Savannah.  First of all, I can't believe how time flies!  Second, I love looking back to see how my decorating style has evolved over time. My house is very "collected," which means that … [Read more...]

This post is sponsored by Kirkland's, but all opinions are mine. Yes!  Happy first day of fall!  Now that it's finally here, it's perfectly appropriate for me to get my fall on around the house (because fall is my favorite season).  I know I'm not the only one who loves pumpkin spice and … [Read more...]

TGIF, everybody!  I am (mostly) taking the day off from blogging because I am painting a few rooms in our new house--my downstairs office (right off the kitchen) and the hallway that leads into the kitchen from the garage. I have big plans for this hallway; I want to put built-ins in the pantry, … [Read more...]

If you've been following us for any amount of time, you know that I love the look of sheer white curtains on my back porch.  I first added them to our screened porch at our Tennessee house: And then I created a "DIY screened porch" on our back porch in our Savannah home: We actually used those … [Read more...]

Last week, I posted on all of my indoor Fall decor {you can see that post here}, but I soon realized that I had so many pictures that I'd better save the outdoor decor for a separate post! I actually don't do too much for Fall; just add a few pumpkins (like the rest of the world) and make sure … [Read more...]

My mailbox area looked so sad after Savannah's long, hot summer.  We have sprinklers that come on every night, but most plants get baked to death during August and September.  We had a busy couple of months and I wasn't around much to take care of my flowers. They suffered, and died.  Except for the … [Read more...]

Things were looking a little bit faded on my front porch a few weeks ago, and it wasn't just the inch of pollen covering every surface!  My formerly black seat cushions had faded to gray over several years of use.   In their defense, they're not made from outdoor fabric, so it's no surprise that … [Read more...]

This baker's rack has been completely repurposed into a drink server. You can see my summer "Girls' Night Out" party I hosted and how I used it as drink bar on the porch {here}. This baker's rack was sitting in my garage covered with junk for many years. I even tried to give it away, but there … [Read more...]
