Adding White to my Hutch

I love to change what I have on my kitchen hutch and decided to add some white stuff to it for a lighter, more cottagey look. I think white or cream pitchers are so cute and usually buy them when I find them for cheap, like a few dollars or less. I got together some I had around and put them together like a collection. I put some white dishes behind the pitchers. I am really enjoying the new look. Hope y'all have a great Monday!

An Adorable Sunroom

I was looking through one of my decorating books (Better Homes and Gardens Before and After Decorating Makeovers) and came across this absolutely adorable sunroom. I have had this book for a long time and I think these few pages were pretty much the whole reason I bought it. I love everything about this space. The mix of all the fabrics is what really makes the room, in my opinion. That red and white checked chair just makes me swoon. The room is so bright and cheerful and I would love to spend time in here. I would say it has a cottage garden feel, but also some French country too. Oh goodness, I am feeling the itch to do a makeover coming over me!!!

Free Chandelier as Yard Art

My free chandelier from a garage sale is now hanging as an unexpected piece of yard art on the side of my house. Those 2 windows are in my kitchen so I can look out and see this area. I would like to do something more with this side yard, just not sure exactly what. Hope y'all have a safe and fun Fourth of July weekend! GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!

Backdoor Decor

This blue chair bought at a yard sale has been in my attic for several years. I wanted something different at my backdoor (which is our main entrance) so I got it down, painted it red, and now it holds a watering can with some flowers in it. It looks pretty cute if I do say so myself. I also leaned an old shutter behind it that I painted apple green. I am enjoying seeing it when I walk in and out the door. I love when I can change an area and just use things I already have! Don't you?! Hope you have a great day!
