A bit of Inspiration

I've been huddled down in bed all day sick in pj's thinking
about the smile on my face...

See next week my big punk is graduating 

and mommy the event planner

has a million notes on backs of envelopes,

 we planners do that you know

 then I got to fluffing the home a bit cuz I love my neutrals

Well part of my daily read is Le Ann over at Vintage Sassy

 she is simply adorable and a girl after my heart

 no grass growin under her feet

She uses great "pops" of color in her home

and so I was INSPIRED to change up the

neutral palette for the party unfolding next week...

I love expresso brown...

then I found my hubs, working on a glider

that someone was going to throw out


I'm sorry all workers are subject to bum shots

especially this one...

still smiling over this find

see Amy's pillow, sweet huh

sea shells from my Gracie girl...

every good day ends like this

have a beautiful weekend girls

love, kate xoxo

You are one precious gal! Thank you so much for saying that! I am loving the espresso brown...uh oh...what's next..maybe a little turquoise???

Hey, where was the "butt crack"? What's wrong with Bob? Doesn't he know that is supposed to be present while working on projects? You know, like the one Bryce has ALL the time at Country Roads when he is working on something? I hope my friend is feeling much better soon. And in case you are wondering, that comes from the heart. Take care of yourself!

Too cute.
Love the espresso brown, not just because I am addicted to espresso but I just love a good shade of brown.
I hope you can stop by the shop on Monday, I will email you when I get there.
Feel better soon

Ooh, I love your new look! Your living room is so fantastic! I love the pillows as does everyone I'm sure. Maybe I should put a chandelier in my living room, hmmm something to think about!

Sorry you haven't been yourself these days, I've been thinking about you while I sit here with only the dogs and birds to talk to !

Can't wait to hear all the details on the graduation!
