Copy Cat!

Hi All,
I haven't done a Copy Cat post for awhile, so I am excited to be able to join in over at DebbieDoos!
 Here is my inspiration...
 Here is my version...
 I so love red, so this one was perfect for me...
 Changed mine up a bit with a bottle of milk...
 I so love pouring milk out of these on my cereal!
Hope you are enjoying your day!

Bridal Shower

Hi All,
 I  have been away for a few days visiting relatives, and attending a bridal shower, while there. My closest family lives in a suburb of Chicago. My cousin's son is getting married in Sept, so I went up for the bridal shower. Thought I would share some pics of some family fun, shower and a few of my cousin's home...
 A nice lunch on Friday with my two cousins and family...
 My cousins, Susan and Sara...
 Their daughters, Caitlin, Courtney and Anna...
 At the shower with cousins Terri, Susan and Terri's daughter, Melissa expecting twins!
 We sat out here to eat the delicious food, all made by my cousin Susan's friends...
 They also made the table decorations...
 The beautiful cake...
 My cousin's friends, who put on the shower, and the future bride and groom...
 Bride to be, opening the gifts...
 One of the hostesses with me and cousin Susan(Mother of the Groom)
 On to Susan's lovely home, my bedroom...
 These were taken with the Iphone, so sorry for the poor quality, but here is little Cocoa on top of the chair in the Family Room...

Looking from the kitchen, into the family room...
Hope you enjoyed sharing my fun family trip with me!

Loving the Flair!

Hi All,
I have been playing around with Smilebox.  They have such cute frames for collages.  Here is my latest blog banner...
Still loving my Flair stove, so thought I would celebrate it here on my banner.  Top left is my kitchen, top right, me and my Flair, center is a vintage ad from the 1960's and bottom right is Samantha from Bewitched, cooking away on her Flair.  She loved the Flair so much, she chose not to twitch her nose to do the cooking!  lol
Hope you are all enjoying the week.

Hubby's Den Reveal

Hi All,
Guess what?! I have the windows open!!! The front came through, yippee! I have had Dan's den done for awhile, but it has been so hot that all I have been doing is dragging the hose around. Here are some pics of the completed room. which used to be our dining room before we had the addition built.
 Looking into the den...
 Dan loves the nautical theme and once owned a sailboat...
 I love my print of the Kennedy's watching the America's Cup...
 The seating area.  I am on the hunt for an ottoman to go with the loveseat...
 Old Salt and a sailboat atop the armoire...
 I found unfinished oars on ebay and painted them in nautical colors...
All in all, pleased with the results :)

Hi Everyone...

Sorry I have been an absent blogger, sad face.  It has just been so hot here for so long with our 100+ temps, I am finding little inspiration in the gardens, etc.  I drag the hose around everyday just trying to keep all my flowers alive.  Poor things. :(  A cold front moves through tonight and we will be back in the 80's again.  I have all my potted plants sitting under a tree to help them from the heat a bit.  In the meantime I will post some pics of gardens past.
Hope your weekend is great!
