Evergreen Plantation in Dining Room

Hello! How was your Labor Day?

We had a great holiday, my Mother visited and we celebrated her birthday. It's always a fun visit when she can make it, little shopping and good food!

Friday my Husband had the day off and surprised me with a nice purchase. Kirklands had a wonderful sale going on and we took advantage (Thanks to my Husband). We have been eyeing this large framed picture of the Evergreen Plantation for many months. We were able to bring it home safely which was fun trying to get it in husband's car. Husband even was able to hang it with very little trouble, surprising since it is quite large. I have loved this picture of the Evergreen Plantation in Louisiana for a long time, I highly suggest you google the name and browse through the many pictures of this beautiful place.  It matches our buffet from Havertys perfectly and for the holidays I'll decorate it simply so as not to take away from the gorgeousness of it. 
I have also attached a video sharing our Kirklands haul.

July Favorites

The month of July was filled with tons of favorite buys! Mostly for our 3 kids since school is right around the corner.

Abby has discovered Vera Bradley this year and we bought her first Vera Bradley item, a backpack for school with a few accessories to finish the collection off. The pattern is called "Pink Swirls". I believe it's a retired pattern.

We ran into Claire's to pick up one cute Pair of earrings to start the schoolyear and came out with a few more items, girls sure can talk me into things, haha.

I wanted to peek into Yankee Candle and sniff the new Fall candles and came home with these 2!

Really enjoying the Farmer's Market! I know, I know, here in FL we don't have an Autumn/Fall season but this girl is going to pretend in this house!

Teen Bedroom Makeover

With Abigail in her Teens now, she certainly has her own ideas and opinions on how she would like things to be.

We try to accommodate her when we can. She wanted a more grown-up looking bedroom this year. So...begone her mixed colors and patterns.

We ran to BigLots and found a nice Black and White comforter for her new Full size bed. We also ran over to Dollar General for these black and white baskets that I saw last month...as of today my local store still had a few.

We bought these two nightstands from a local FB page and transformed them with some white spray paint last week. I love how the new handles give the set a new fresh, updated look.

Now we are on the lookout for Pillows to add color.

So what colors would go best with this set for a Teens room, Ideas?

Kitchen Command Center

I needed a command center somewhere in our house. This wall in our kitchen will do nicely!

My MIL gave us this lovely gold frame and we already had the cork board. Husband just trimmed the side a tad and we never spent any money!

We always gravitate in our kitchen after school, late night snacking and just talking with friends so I knew I wanted it to be placed where we were constantly planning our weeks.

With our 3 kids and Husband's busy travel schedule I needed to keep organized and the kids needed something to check off their chores.

I'm still wanting to add something to each side but I'm not sure what.

Any suggestions?

The Search Has Ended...

The Search for the perfect couch pillows has ended!

I walked into Bealls Outlet while they were putting their new merchandise on the shelves and I immediately grabbed these 4 matching pillows. New Year, new look! I'm going for French Country mixed with traditional decor in 2016.

I will be adding plants in cream vases, I have already spotted a few possibilities from Hobby Lobby.

Santa Can See Us

I love a rooftop lined in white lights and this year is the first year in such a long time that we have done it.

We hope to add more lights tonight.

Entryway is Ready

Our entryway is Ready for Christmas!

I love the softness of the candles early in the evening now. I'm not sure what I will put on top of this table after the Holidays.

Any of you have ideas to share?
