YIKES!!! Summertime & Computers

Hi Everyone,
Between summer activities with the kids and a corrupted
hard drive, I haven't been able to do much posting lately.
  But the kids are occupied today and the
computer is back from the correctional facility 
for corrupted computers so I'm finally having a
chance to get back to this blog.

Here are just a few little things I've changed up 
around my house recently...

I found this basket on clearance at Joann Fabrics
and this pot of flowers just happened to fit in
it perfectly ~  it looks so fresh and cheerful
to me.  Sometimes it's just the little things that
can brighten up a day don't you think?

I purchased this small pitcher at Homegoods 
primarily for warming syrup for breakfast but I thought
it looked pretty on display!

A couple of the shelves on our computer desk ~
I put together the picture frame with just some scrapbook paper,
an alphabet printout from The Graphics Fairy  and just a little sprig of
babies breath tucked behind.  I think it looks kind of simple and sweet.

This is my favorite basket ~ almost anything looks good in it!

I hope you are all enjoying some summery goodness
this weekend!

I have some other little projects to show you
so I hope to do that sometime soon!

***Thanks so much for taking the time to visit ~
it really does mean a lot to me!****

  1. Your baskets are pretty...I really like the last one and have been looking for something similar. I also like what you did with the picture frame.

    Sorry about your computer problems, hopefully this is the end of them!

    Have a great weekend, Joanne!


  2. Computers are great when they work. Glad yours is back from the computer correctional facility!!

    I love the basket w/ the plant - very cute idea! I also love the metal basket- I can see why it's your favorite.

  3. Our internet is often slow at times. Too many users in this country and not enough providers, I'm guessing.

    Every time I buy a little something for display or a pretty basket, it gets overrun with stuff and then you can't see the beauty of the piece anymore. :/ Nice to change things up just a bit even if only moving around things you already own.

    Hope you are having a great weekend. Tammy

  4. Love all your little changes Joanne, everything looks so pretty! Martina

  5. I think the little changes are the best. I love the wire basket with the pretty dishes and linens. I hope this is the end of computer problems for you. Have a great week.
