A little shopping trip to Home Goods .....

I spent about 2 hours there the other day, hiding out from the heat and getting an eye full of summer sales.....Home Goods is mentioned a few times in my Blog, lol, I should buy stock there! or at least I can safely say Ive bought almost every bowl they've sold :) and of course Summer is for the "Sea" in me, so I had to have these creamy blue Ocean patterned ones ;)
Dessert First anyone ?? :)

I have always had these little cordial glasses, My Daughter used to call them "fairy cups"....cute ;) and the napkins are seersucker cotton....nice and big for catching any ice cream drips :) Notice the "pink" ice cream scooper, yippee ;) gotta love kitchen Aide ;)
I found Pink place mats, and a beautiful pastel table runner from the Cottage Home at HG( I need a better pic of it ) just the perfect shade for me!..... I set the table to surprise my Daughter when she got home ( shes 12 )...I was hoping she'd "hang" with me, but she called and asked to sleepover her girlfriends house.....oh well, more ice cream for me, lol ;)I picked this up for 14.99$, I thought it was perfect for my bathroom .....love the blue shabby chic too :) sooooo Vintage-y.... ;)I hung it on the wall tonight, but have yet to add anything to it.... Im sure I can dig up something :) and then the kids will yell that it says: "Clean Towels , its self explanatory Mom ;)"....but, lol, its too pretty, so Im sure i'll add some scented sachets with ribbons or something :)

Hydrangea Crazy ;)...

It doesnt hurt that these are the perfect blue either, they work perfect in my kitchen :) My Hydrangeas....



This is absolutely my favorite flowering bush on the property!

Happy July 4th....

As most of you know , I am crazy about the water colors of Susan Branch, and what better way to kick off summer than to picnic at the Beach. Mind you, lol, I havent had a chance to do this yet, but Im hoping to get one or two in by the "end " ( lol ) of summer ;)

Happy Forth of July to all my sweet friends! I hope you all enjoy a relaxing, fun weekend!! I pulled out a Vintage child's chair and an American Country quilt and a little flag for the occasion :) sorry , lol, I wasnt able to get the large one off the house ;)
