I wanted to show you a few vignettes I've created for summer. I love the textures and colors atop my inherited what-not shelf (it belonged to my mom). A clock in every room is a total necessity for me since I quit wearing a watch. Who needs a watch when they have a cell phone, right? But when you're in one room and the cell phone is in another - you need a clock! My daughter's baby picture brings back such happy memories, what a precious little girl who was the answer to years of prayer. We adopted her (and her brother) from Romania in 1997. The blue vase with pink and white daisies is another thing that makes me happy.
This summer I kept my mantel very simple - this is the little vignette on the far right. I'm beginning to see a theme in colors as I post these pictures Blue and pink are two colors that make me very happy, apparently ;)
Oh my goodness, this picture below - more blue and pink! I hadn't even realized I was doing this in my house, but now that I realize how I'm really crushing on these colors, I think I'll go with it in other areas!
The above are a few mugs I've been collecting at Home Goods, and have I mentioned (about a hundred times) that Home Goods is my all-time favorite store?! It is. The white vase with pink flowers on the mantel (in pic above) is from Home Goods too. There's lots more in my home from that store (I visit weekly lol), so I'll have to do a Home Good post soon.
If you're interested in shopping there (the greatest items at fantastic prices), here's an inside tip: the truck delivers new merchandise for the week on Sunday. The merchandise is on the shelves by Monday afternoon. So, pencil Home Goods in on your Monday dance card, it's the day to shop!
