I was visiting Linda's blog called Restyled home today and saw this great picture of a living room that she had posted. She had a fun post all about mirrors! I love the simplicity of this room...and the color or lack there of...I may have to go back to off white, creamy walls! I do have black accents in my room right now and my couch is pretty similar to this one...sounds like a room re-do may be in the future...but for now I hope everyone has a nice weekend! we are off to the lake!

It's strawberry season! I went to pick strawberries last week at a field near my home...There were strawberries as far as you could see! Fields and Fields of strawberries! I remember going to pick strawberries with my parents when I was young, I think every child should experience it! They hand you a tote when you arrive to put your berries in and show you which row you can pick from and away you go...The smell of strawberries filled the air. There were many people picking that morning but it was wonderfully quiet as everyone was caught up in their own picking methods,concentrating on getting the perfect berry! true BLISS...

I forgot this in my post yesterday...I bought this sweet little key chain($5) at the Buffalo Nickel...A talented girl named Tamara makes them and sells them in her booth~ I just loved the flowers on this one, and the pretty initial carved into it...(which you can't see it in the picture). That was my only purchase yesterday...I guess I didn't need anything to badly, which is strange because I always find something at the Buffalo Nickel that I have to buy!

It was so much fun to go visit all my friends at the Buffalo Nickel yesterday(I used to be a dealer there). Addison had a great time! of course we had to get a picture of her in the middle of this beautiful display. Addison helped my friend Lynn rearrange her booth and had so much fun dancing with the owner of the Buffalo Nickel (Donna,she's the best!)...I also got a picture of Lynn's booth, I love that old porch swing...We found it when we were junking together at a flea market in Rochester MN... The shop looked fantastic and I miss having lunch with all the girls every Tues. We have to visit more often!!! After visiting and lunch, Addison was exhausted...so sweet!

This is my favorite picture of my Dad and I....that is me hidden somewhere in those floral drapes! Even though I was one of six children, and my Dad wasn't big on speaking about his feelings...I will always remember the twinkle in his eyes that he had for me...Dad passed away last January. I hope to see those twinkling eyes again some day... Happy Father's Day everyone! Make it a special one!

What a beautiful picture...I have seen this done before, printing names on rocks and using them as place cards! so simple. It would make a beautiful summer time placing setting the next time we visit the lake...maybe some sticks in a bucket with marsh mellows on the ends and use it as a centerpiece?? I could go for a smore right about now...mmmmm. Have a great weekend everyone! Don't eat to many smores!

I have subscribed to Country Living since the beginning (that really dates me...oops.) and it feels like I have always received Country Home...my friends and I have had this discussion, which one do you favor? for me it is Country Home....I like Country Living, but I think the photography in Country Home is beautiful! And Country Home seems more current and on top of the latest decorating trends..If I had to choose it would be CH...I know I know there are more pressing issues in our lives today but it is ok to escape every now and then...Which one do you favor?

Yeah! It's Friday...I found this picture in my Romantic Home Sewing book, I would love to curl up this weekend and read a book in this cozy bed...better yet, if it were up by the lake in a little cottage! perfect. I am going to try and relax this weekend and read a book, but first things first...gotta go junking tomorrow morning bright and early! I hope everyone has a relaxing rest filled weekend...take care. p.s. sorry about the crooked scanned picture.

"May I a small house and a large garden have. A few friends and many books, both wise, both true, and both delightful, too." by Abraham Cowley I have lived in my small house(1600 square feet) since 1982...I will never tire of it...I fell in love with it and my large garden the day we met!

We just got back from a week at the lake...it was a great week full of campfires, boat rides, fishing, long walks, sandy feet and smores! It was so nice to have my Mom join us, she hasn't been there since my Dad passed away(this place was my Dad's passion) she had a great time! I am so blessed to have all of these people in my life....
