::Springlike Things::

PSSSST...I'm no longer blogging here!
You can now find me at


You aren't gonna believe this, but I have a decorating post for you.

I know.  Wonders never cease.

I call this 'spring light' since I usually kinda go coo-coo with the mantel.
Proof here, here, here, and here.

All the candles would play an integral part in setting a particular mood a few days after these were taken.

A bit of pales on the drysink.

I didn't buy anything for 'spring decor' this year, just threw stuff I already had randomly around.

Added some white birdies to the kitchen hutch.
'Cause, well, you know.

Looking in from the dining nook.

Here's how it looked in the wee hours before Grandbaby Robyn Rose joined us:

Told ya those candles had a big part to play....burned thru 3 full sticks per holder waiting for Robyn.

I think a gigantic blue blow up pool really makes the whole room work, don't you?

Next up, the guest room and bath.

Robyn Rose 
Born into her daddy's hands (on my living room floor) at 7:18am this morning, 
weighing 8 pounds and 2 ounces.

I am a Gramma.

She will decorate my life with all things beautiful,
twinkly, and magical.


::oh yeah, I have a decorating blog::

I'm back.  

And I've missed you guys.

I actually have some decorating stuff to share.

But not til Monday. (boo)

(evidence of new beginnings.  I love that. As should you.)

Today I thought I'd catch you up on my last 2.5 months in pictures:  Ready set?

I attempted to cheat winter this year by spending almost the entirety of February in Florida.
We saw the Mouse and his Mrs.

We took in the sights of life-sized lego men at Legoland.

We drove down to Naples to visit my folks.

(my mama with my daughters Maddie on the left, Gracie on the right)

Then Hubs dropped the boys and I in the Panhandle
where we spent two more weeks looking at this:

(not a good sign)

It was cold, windy and rainy the ENTIRE 2 weeks. 
I came home exhausted, depressed about the money we'd spent for nothing, 
and finally ready to make some changes in my life.

In March, my sis and I took a quick trip to Nashville TN to see Mumford & Sons 
at the historic Ryman Auditorium.  

My brother happens to be their booking agent (as well as Bon Iver's!), 
and he got us some wicked awesome seats.  
Unfortunately my iPhone died just as the concert started :(

(we also spent the next day getting completely lost and found ourselves in Greece.
*snicker*  Actually we found ourselves in Centennial Park near Vanderbuilt U.)

This month my oldest daughter Maddie graduates with a bachelors in Graphic Design.
Here she is receiving 1st Place in Graphic Design for her Senior Show Display!

And here's her set up.
She designed everything: did the photography, labels, catalogues, signage, packaging, website, etc. 
I made the soap :)

Close up:

(all this soap will be on sale soon.  I'll post the link when it's ready!)

And finally, we are within one week of D-day for this:

My second daughter Kristen will be presenting us with our first grandbaby (a girl!) hopefully within days.

(blurry pic of her sitting on third daughter Gracie's lap)

In the meantime, I've redecorated my mantle and other spots with springishness, 
finished the guest room as well as the guest bath. 
My motivation came in the form of that belly up thar....Kristen is delivering at home,
at MY home, and I wanted her to have comfortable spaces to labor in.
(did you guys know I am a doula?)

Anyway, I'll be showing off those finished spaces next week.
Unless we have a baby first, then I will of course be showing HER off....

The only other item of possible interest: I fired up my other blog again....
where I document my lifestyle changes and personal journey to physical, mental and spiritual health.  
Feel free to pop over there sometimes too.

Would love to hear how things are going in your meadow.
