I left the inside and outside crease of the door black. The inside of the front door is white but I’ll show you that side later. I got the crease idea from an image I saw on ish and chi. Now I need to spruce up the rest of our front porch with something. I plan to spiff it up this weekend. Any ideas?

I'm sure dad felt lucky to be in town when we noticed the leak! In this picture Dad, Cooper and Lee are trying to find the source of the leak. We were hoping only a hose needed to be tightened. Wrong.

I want my breakfast nook to feel clean and alive. Make me feel like I've had 10 cups of coffee and I can run a marathon after 5 pm on a work day. These color choices are bold and beautiful. I may need to mix in some more masculine touches if I can even begin to get my hubby to go for this but I do love it.

Bridal cartoon reads: "I'm sorry, ma'am, but we don't do bridal showers."
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8: To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; A time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; a time to rend, and a time to sew; A time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; A time of war and a time of peace.

We do his and her Easter by rotating families every year. Although we're not consistent in our location, we do continue our traditions. New outfit for Easter morning, attend church together as a family, big ham lunch and finally a crazy egg hunt to find the Prize Egg! I have attached a few Easter-y touches around my kitchen and my favorite Easter funnies to get you through the weekend. Have a good one!

Our dear friends, Kimberly and Rusty are getting married soon. She asked for my assistance in the decorating of their newly built home. At the moment, we are working on her master bedroom. Rusty and Kimberly are learning to combine their personal styles and compromising is still an adjustment. My hubby Lee was picky at first too but after I went ahead and painted a room pink; he had no choice but to give up. Ha! You have to wait for a pink room picture when our House Beautiful tour is complete. Challenges:
- Stay within budget due to the upcoming wedding, etc.
- Don’t paint the walls. (They are a nice creamy white/tan color)
- Combine Rusty’s very traditional style with Kimberly’s Shabby Chic/French Cottage Style.
- Try to use accessories that can be added to their registry.
See below for the Mood Board Kimberly absolutely loves.
Inspiration Room (Image: House Beautiful)
- Vintage Clock by Pottery Barn
- Havana Stripe-Mocha Duvet by Target (Reversible)
- Glass Table by Target
- Shabby Chic White Sheets by Target
- Vase by Target
- Floral by Pier 1
- Burlap Pillow (Sew it!)
- Wall Decal (Google it, you can find monograms anywhere!)
- Ruffle Pillow ( I heart ruffles, sew it!)
*Beds are from JCPenneys by Chris Madden.
I also suggested she put an old window she has to use somehow in this room. Get a big leather studded chair and ottoman, shop http://www.overstock.com/ for a reasonably priced chandelier and maybe find an old trunk or upholster a bench to put at the end of her bed. Ideas are endless.
