When I Slept In a Tree House

fox house nashville 5

Last week I had the opportunity for some one-on-one, mother/daughter time with Kaleigh. She had to make a work trip to Gatlinburg, TN and asked if I’d join her. Our plan was to drive to Nashville from OKC, spend the night and then on in to Gatlinburg the next day.

While attempting to find a last minute hotel, Kaleigh did a quick search on airbnb to find somewhere cute to stay.

She found a treehouse.  Continue reading

Summer Blooms

Summer Flowers

By the end of August the blooming plants at my house are showing their age, wear and tear.

Or it could just be a lack of water due to the fact that I get quite lazy about watering plants this time of year.

These photos were taken earlier this month at my Mom’s house. How I wish I had her magic touch with plants.

Turquoise Front Door Winter

Our Winter Home

Turquoise Front Door Winter

I took these photos several weeks ago during a small winter storm. While much of the country is measuring their snowfall in feet, this storm is hardly worth mentioning by comparison.

But it was such a pretty snow I had to take a few pics and, of course, share.

Backyard Wedding Reception (4)

In August, my nephew Geordan & his bride Koki were married in Hawaii, on the island of Kauai, in a beautiful late afternoon, ocean side ceremony.

In September, Gina & George hosted a backyard wedding reception so all their Oklahoma family and friends could bless newlyweds.

It was a beautiful Sunday evening…and after the threat of rain passed...perfect weather for an outdoor celebration.

How to Update Exterior Lanterns

How to Easily Update Your Exterior Lanterns

How to Update Exterior Lanterns

For several weeks, okay months, I’d been noticing how dirty our garage lanterns were.

Upon closer inspection they weren’t dirty they were faded. Really faded.

Our garage faces west and 8 years of sun exposure had done a number on their finish. While you might look at these photos and think this is a nice patina, don’t be fooled. They just looked old and dirty. Very dirty.

So after much hassling, nagging and begging Scott finally took the lanterns down for me so I could paint them.

Farmhouse Garden (2)

A Farmhouse Wedding Shower & Tour

1-227

I do not covet my sister’s house. I will not covet my sister’s house.

But, I will admit, I’d love to find an old farmhouse to call my own that has just as much charm as this one. Charm and character that says welcome even before you walk in the door.

But Sheri would have to design the landscape and maintain the flower beds because my creativity doesn’t venture much beyond the screen door.  Pun intended. :)

Springtime Inspiration: Front Porches, Wisteria Vines and Aqua Doors

Welcoming Victorian Entrance

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend. We attended a Saturday night Easter Worship service with my Sister-in-law Gina and her family, participated in two worship services at our home church, spent the afternoon cooking and the evening at Gina’s home for Easter dinner.

Years ago Gina said, “Let’s have Easter at my house because it matches!”  And it does! Inside and out. :)
