To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

SUMMER'S HERE! CHEERFUL UPDATES ROOM BY ROOM!
Why not breathe beauty into every space?
DRESS THE DOOR
A new Rose Hip wreath
greets family and guests for summer visits!
New Hummingbird vines have been planted along
the back fence....this summer, hopefully
we will be enjoying coral and soft yellow blooms!
New placemats, dinner plates and napkins....
featuring vibrant coastal blues and lemon yellows!
there will always be a sweet spot!
a room with a pretty view!
A new coastal canvas for the guest bedroom....
I have wanted one of these since we visited
the condo in Ft. Walton Beach...
he's all ours!
I simply ADORE my new coffee mug which was
given to me on Mother's Day
by Greg and Jenn!
I squealed when I opened the bag
and unwrapped this beautiful mug....
in honor of Estelle's...so thoughtful
So...this led to some inspiration to
"pretty-up" my work space....
New hanging files, a rose gold acrylic stapler,
chic new writing pens and
of course, new sassy reading glasses!
I added a new day journal. along with a pink "TO DO" pad...
then,,,,,,the little glass trinket box caught my eye....it was just a must have!
