This window box is freshly planted, so everything will get fuller and taller, but it’s quite a nice start! I love the various colors of purple and white. Purple, white and green is a nice color combination. Soft, calming, and happy. I’m thrilled that this window box is back in its rightful place…Continue reading “Happy Dance: The Window Box is Back!”
Pretty flowers, aren’t they? These were in a flower box as I passed by at a store we frequent. Their flowers are gorgeous and this was no exception. We recently planted a flower box at our house (stay tuned for Monday’s post). We used trailing petunias, mint, French lavender and a tall plant with green and interesting small purple flowers. It’s only been planted a few days but is growing like crazy! It looks happy, whew!Continue reading “Happy Plants Thriving In The Sun”
Have you ever been to a Southern Living Showcase Home? If you run across one in your travels, definitely check it out! It’s always fun to actually go inside a certain house plan so you can envision it as your very own. But it’s also helpful to go inside to see not necessarily how they have a room decorated, but how the furniture is placed – you can see if you like the flow that way or if you prefer it a different way. Today’s house plan is a beauty.Continue reading “Whiteside Farm House Plan (SL1979) by Todd Wilson for Southern Living House Plans”
Spring/Summer Pasta – Quick & Easy!
The temps are getting a bit warmer and the humidity is starting to creep up… What to do for dinner? Well, I don’t know about you, but one thing NOT to do is to turn on the oven. It seems to heat up our kitchen and ugh, makes me not want to eat. So I was trying to think of something quick to throw together with fresh ingredients…Continue reading “Spinach Pasta with Grilled Chicken and Fresh Corn – Spring is here!”
The other day I wrote a post and the image was near this area (looking in the opposite direction) – this is at lower tide, where you see mud in some places. The view is ever changing, but always amazing. There are always birds in the marsh. The grass changes color with the seasons.Continue reading “Morning Walk, Low Tide…”
To all the Mothers out there… HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY! This is a photo of my mom from long ago – it actually doesn’t feel all that long ago. I have vivid memories of sailing with my parents (weekends and Wednesdays) and having the best time ever…Continue reading “Happy Mothers Day!”
Springtime in Charleston elicits feelings of hope and gratitude. I think it’s the scenery, everything in bloom and the scents wafting through the air. It’s a magical time of year made even better when you notice all the little things. I took this photo on a morning walk…Continue reading “Morning Walk, Charleston, SC!”
Who else shares unflattering images of themselves? #haha I took this several weeks ago when my natural blonde was being refreshed (ahem). Nothing like getting your doo done, right? I love the woman I go to, she’s amazing and can work miracles! So thankful. #TYHMContinue reading “Me, being me…”
A Spring Wrap!
Now that the weather is warming up (quickly) it’s time to switch to lighter fare. Something fresh and different, but tasty nonetheless. Let me tell you, this is a winner. It was quick to throw together, part of it is grilled (outside if you can), the rest comes together easily AND you can add whatever you love!Continue reading “A Spring Wrap”
Morning walks are the best. Especially if you get moving about the time the sun hits the golden stage at sunrise (or at sunset if you’re not an early riser). There is no better color than that of sunlight on anything. Just look at that amazing blue sky and the sculpture like shape of the tree. #beautifulContinue reading “A Walk on the Wild Side 🐊🐍🦅”
