Mother's Day

I want to wish everyone a very happy and special  Mother's Day!
I don't usually show pictures of my 2 kiddos but  I just had to make an exception today and  share a couple of my favorites.
{They are at the ages now where they would prefer to not have their pics on here so we just won't tell them ~ okay?  Shhhh!!}
 {i love you guys} {more than you will ever know}

Little Hallway Changes

~ ~ ~ ~ • ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ • ~ ~ ~ ~
Hi Everyone, I made some changes in the little hallway that leads to our bedroom.

~ this is how it looked for a long time ~

~ and this is how it looks now ~

I found this plate at a yard sale a long time ago and I love it.

I love it even with its little imperfections.
But I had never really found a good spot for it.

With the little bit of yellow in it, I thought it might look good here with the yellow of this little table.


Then I just added some flowers in pretty jars.

I found the jars at Joann Fabrics and thought they were pretty with the design on the front. They were very inexpensive ~ $3 for the small one, and $4 for the larger one. (They came with lids also.)

Doesn't it look kind of sweet?

A simple little change to freshen up this spot for spring and summer.
I always appreciate your visits so much ~  you make this whole blogging thing so worthwhile!!

Adding More Cottage Style

Do you ever feel like there is something just not right about a room? I like our family room but I don't feel completely satisfied with it. I think I want it to have more of a cottage feel than it currently has.

So I made a few easy changes to give it more of what to me is the quintessential cottage look.

I moved my chippy window frame from the entryway to this wall . . .

. . . and placed a vintage tablecloth that I had on the trunk.


Then I cut apart a $3 spray of white geraniums and arranged  them in a pot that did have some old dusty flowers in it.

What do you think?

I like it so much better!
Now I have to see what I can do to the rest of the room!!
