Garden Delight! 

I tried out a new nursury that I love called Sloat 

Planting this little pot garden was so special to me. These pots were my Papas pots and I love planting flowers in his memory. 

The yellow daisies remind me of my aunt Jami


Cedar Ridge & Pinecrest

    Chloe’s first time at a cabin!  We arrived late Friday night and Chloe got to run all around -The Cabin- where everything is fun. Saturday, I spent a leisurely morning drinking coffee and spending some time reading the the book of Matthew while Jon and Chloe explored the forest and played ‘throw the rock’. 

The lighting was odd.. not a blazing fire : )

    Nap time!

Jon burping haha

We head off to Pinecrest a quick drive from the cabin.. stopping through Twain Heart I could help myself but to stop at the cutest place I’d ever seen.. ‘Cafe Blossom’ A quaint yellow victorian with a billowing garden. Home of a joint Coffee Shop, Boutique and a Nursury.. with dispersed garden chairs for sitting. ❤ (I wish I had taken pictures of this place)

Off to the Lake

“… everybody look at me cuz I’m standin on a boat!…”

We rented a little motor boat and set out on the lake. Chloe liked the boat. She wasn’t excited about sitting with her parents.. she’d always rather inspect the premises solo. 

Arriving at the waterfall across from the marina we hiked up, Chloe found a little spot where she could drop a stick in the water and watch it flow around. 

Good times : )

Upcycled Chandelier


Our ‘old world’ chandelier got a makeover! I love the new wave of upcycling that’s going on out there and had to get my hands on it. The chandelier that came with our place had to go.. and after a year of living with it I finally have her a little color : ) 

The paint is drying and I’m greatful for the 105 degree weather that makes it quick.  

 Jon helped with the electrical and I painted her. I was having trouble finding replacement glass that wasn’t the brown frosted. I thought we’d toss the project until Jon took some acetone to it and -voila- white frosted glass! Works for me : ) 


The big picture for our living area is to go white on white with the color andsplash this aqua color.  Hopefully I can stand the aqua with our beige until I can do that..
