NEW Bedding for Summer!!!!!

Good morning! I am very happy. I have searched for months and months for summer bedding. I really wanted a tropical/British Colonial vibe in our room for summer. But I didn't want it too "themey"....is that a word, LOL! I finally found something I really liked. Let me know what you think.
 The lantern on the table is somewhat new, I found it several  months ago and really like it in here.
 I have since changed this vignette:)
 I love the parrots in the design.
 My son gave me this piece that features parrots so it is prefect here on my nightstand.
 I also love this wooden pineapple that I found recently.
 I had all the throw pillows so didn't have to purchase any! The one in the front with the monkey is a very favorite of mine.


The palm tree silhouettes were on clearance at Joann Fabric last year so I grabbed them knowing I wanted to go with this idea.
I found this garland with ferns leaves and thought it was perfect to drape over the mirror.

 Some nighttime shots.
 I changed the vignette, added the orchid and rearranged the plate and lantern.





I would have shared the sitting room but the post would be too long. I'll share it tomorrow.
Thanks so much for your visit.
XO, Pinky

Early Summer on the Porch

Good morning my friends! I hope you all had a nice weekend and will have a beautiful week ahead. My front porch is greeting early summer, and YOU! Welcome! As you know, I love the  blue and orange combo. They are at opposite sides of the color wheel so a beautiful combination. I brought that combo outside to the "porch", in the wreath, the pots and the flowers.
 Looking over here to the right, I have a double hook with a hanging plant and a blue bird feeder that Joe made. It is fun to watch them eating  from the dining room window:)
 I keep my cranes in the garage in the winter and bring them out here in the spring. The bushes were cut back in HALF and have grown like weeds. After they finish blooming we will cut them back again and MOVE them to a better location. I want something smaller here.


 Impatiens are my go to out here since it faces north and gets no sun.
 In the urn I planted some begonias and they are doing GREAT! I also have plans to paint the urn. I am not into the black. I may add some gold to the details or just change the whole color.




I love layering a small rug and the doormat. I got the rug at Target last year and the mat at CVS!!!!


 I made the wreath 2 years ago but still like it here. I store my wreaths by hanging them on a hanger, covering them with a dry cleaner bag and hang them in a closet in the basement.

 I am surprised that the wrens have not tried to make a nest in the wreath this year. One year I had to move it to the side wall because we couldn't go in and out the door:)


 This bird house was a housewarming gift from my sister-in-law. I love it!

Thanks so much for your visit. I hope you all have a great day.
XO, Pinky

Spring on the Dining Room Table

Good morning friends! I always keep the table set in the dining room to be a nice welcome when anyone comes over. I set a new table for Spring to share with you! The dining room is to the right when you come in the door.
I found the dinner plates on clearance at Pier 1 several years ago so grabbed them I was lucky that they had 4 left. The little appy plates came from Home Goods a couple of years ago.
 I added a different nest at each place setting.

 My Napolean Bee flatware is a staple during the Spring and Summer.
 I gathered a turquoise napkin and a flowered napkin (that matches the place mats), in a flower ring.
2 cute watering can candles were added to the centerpiece along with the turquoise candle holders and LED candles. Then a little potted plant.
 The wine glasses are hand painted and were a gift from my SIL many years ago. They each have a different flower painted on them. Thanks, Janie.

I found the runner at Christmas Tree Shops last year, I think.

 If we were eating at this table I would definitely switch out the centerpiece for a small vase of flowers for easy conversation!




 At night we can light the candles.








Thanks so much for stopping by! Our weather has been a roller coaster. We had 7 out of 11 weekends of RAIN, then this past week we had 2 days of high 80's then today it went back to the LOW 70's for the high. Crazy!
