Summer Picnic Time

One of the greatest things about being back in Northern Utah is the weather.  It's cool in the morning and evening so dining outside is beautiful.
I take my coffee on the deck. It's an extension of our living space and sitting here smelling the natural scents of our surroundings is relaxing.
I love that the back yard is private. Our neighbors on either side can see us but there is a hill at the back where a little creek flows with water about 70% of the year. The sound of that is heavenly.
I like having part of the deck covered so I can hang a chandelier. It's another place for me to move furniture around all the time.
However, none of our outdoor furniture is very comfortable for lounging in but it rarely rains so I am thinking about getting some cushioned pieces, like a sofa and snuggle chairs.
The other great thing about this drier climate is there are no bugs. My kids say there are a lot of spiders but they soon forgot how big our spiders were on the East Coast.

So long as I am home or with family & few friends, this place is great.

So much has changed, mostly myself.

Hope you are all enjoying the outdoors where you live.

Hugs,

Room with a View

After several weeks of shifting gears in my life I am finally getting around to posting an update. Although, there is not much in the way of decorating or refinishing furniture, I have ventured into working outside of the home and have had little energy or "craving" to take on any home improvement projects here at home.

A Refinished Dining Set

I haven't refinished or painted a furniture piece in a long time, it seems like. The weather was so nice last week so I decided to take advantage of the "good painting" weather and tackle this big project.

Happy Wintery Weekend

Hello Friends!

Cottage Contemporary - What is that to you?

Our house is a contemporary style but my decorating style isn't necessarily that way, except that I like clean and simple lines.

Chicken Enchiladas {yum}

This recipe was inspired by a Food Network show from years ago. I came up with this on my own but I wish I could remember the guy that gave me the surprise ingredient idea.

Natural Accents in the Family Room

After the Christmas decorations are all put away it's fun to bring in natural winter accents from outside.

A Creative Holiday House Tour from Washington

Good morning! 

I have a special treat for you today. One of my favorite bloggers is here to share her lovely home decked out for the holidays. It's always fun to peek in on somebody else's house, don't you think?

Moving on to Christmas

I don't know about you but sometimes I am so glad to have one holiday over with so that we can move on to the next. I feel guilty for admitting that because the most special day of the year for our family comes right around Thanksgiving so I feel a little pressure to make it extra special.
