“We Need Color!”

Hello everyone!  I feel as if I’m still trying to catch up on all that I neglected the last few months with Lauren’s wedding and her recent move to North Carolina.  She is settling in quite nicely and has become the happy little homemaker.  However, she called within a week of moving into their apartment and said “Mom I need your help with our living room……we need color!”  So I asked her what color she would like to add and of course she said “whatever you think Mom.”  I suggested that maybe she could add green since all of her furniture is brown and she liked that idea.  With that being said, I started shopping!

Because they have nothing on their walls and trying to keep cost down, I purchased fabric from Hancock’s Fabric at 50% off and made fabric wall art.  We all know how expensive wall art can be and I think this will  definitely make a statement and be a focal point in their living room.  


I ordered these beautiful curtain panels from Overstock.com.   They are the perfect shade of green and will look nice with all the accessories that I’ve purchased.

We are planning a little trip to visit Lauren this weekend, so you know what I will be doing……helping her make her apartment her home.  I still have a few more projects to complete for her before we leave so I better get busy.

As always, thanks for the visit and enjoy your day.

My Fall Mantel is featured at BHG.Com!

Several months ago, I was contacted by Elizabeth Jensen at BHG.com asking if they could feature my fall mantel from last year as part of their 2011 Fall Mantel Inspiration Ideas slideshow.  Needless to say, I was thrilled and honored to be contacted and asked if they could feature my fall mantel. 


You can check out the 2011 Fall Mantel Decorating Ideas slideshow here.  It’s so true, you never know who’s looking at your blog. 

As always, thanks for the visit and enjoy your weekend.

They’ve said their I Do’s…..

and what a beautiful wedding it was! 


I have a few pictures I would like to share with all of you that were taken by a friend.  As a very nervous mother the day of the wedding, I forgot my camera!  I’ll have more pictures to share, once we get our professional pictures back which should be this week.   

The whole wedding party.  Patrick wore his Military dress uniform and if I have to say so myself, he looked sharp.  And weren’t the twin ring bearers and flower girl cute?  Now that toddler groomsman was a ham!  


Lauren with the groomsmen.

Would you just look at these young adults. They sure loved “their champagne”, which was white grape juice.  


Lauren and Patrick have now settled into their new home in North Carolina.  And that leaves my husband and I as empty nesters.  We are really happy for our daughter, but we do miss her.


It’s hard to believe that most  people have at least a year to plan for a wedding and we (I) did it in just a little over four months.  But it all came together beautifully and Lauren and Patrick seemed so happy.
