Remodeling Our Kitchen-Part 1


This is our kitchen before our remodel started. It takes a lot of time and thought before you take the remodeling plunge. You have to decide what you want; determine approximately how much it will cost and finally consider the disruption and inconvenience of doing without your kitchen for a considerable length of time ( which is always longer than the contractor estimates). My goals were to replace the sink with a larger farm sink, add a new gas stovetop and vent hood, build in a microwave drawer, replace countertops while making bar one level and eliminate bar sink. It was especially important to me to lighten up the room by painting all the cabinets and trim white. Last but not least, I wanted to add more storage.

Bridal Coffee for my NIECE


It's summertime and there are wedding parties and weddings happening every weekend. Today, I am reposting a bridal coffee for my niece several years ago. The flowers are breathtaking and the food beautiful. Hopefully, you can get some ideas for entertaining maybe on a smaller scale such as the gorgeous limelight hydrangea arrangement and party food.

Hello, and welcome to the Alfresco Tablescape Blog Hop sponsored by Chloe Crabtree @ Celebrate and Decorate blog.
Join me for a summertime alfresco evening here in the deep south with a table set for two. I'm in my garden nestled under the shade of the trees enjoying a nice breeze perfect for alfresco dining for my husband and me.

Identifying Different Types of Hydrangeas


My garden pics

Hydrangeas are one of the most bountiful blooms that summer has to offer. The mophead may be the most recognizable hydrangea, but did you know that there are 7 main types of hydrangeas? From the lacecap to the paniculata hydrangea, there are different hydrangea types that actually look quite different from each other.
