{Beaching with the Girls}

Good Sunday afternoon everyone. I hope that you all are having a wonderful Sunday and that tomorrow, July 4th, that you enjoy your red, white and blues. I just returned from from a short getaway to Fernandina Beach with my three daughters and we had such a wonderful time. We had one shower of rain but needless to say, I was a drowned rat! But oh did it ever feel so good and I simply just give praise for the much needed rain and time away with the girls. I for sure got the biggest soaking but then I can't move as fast as my girls! LOL!  Web image We had a lovely meal at the Boathouse one evening. We had about an hour wait so we walked around the historic district for a bit and oh my! I found the cutest little Christmas ornament shop. I can't believe I did not take any pictures. Especially when I LOVE ALL THINGS CHRISTMAS.  There is nothing like the sound of the ocean and the clean salt air to me.  We had brunch one morning at Sliders and one can never go wrong with Grits and Shr

Happy Monday!

Well I must say I've had a great weekend. A busy one but a good one. I got to see my oldest grandgirl make a goal in her soccer game on Saturday and then that night I was privileged to be the guest speaker for a Mother-Daughter banquet at a nearby church and then a great Mother's Day on Sunday. I hope that you had a wonderful Mother's Day too. After being pampered with cards, flowers, Bath and Body, gift cards for a massage, pedi and facial I think I am liking having grown daughters that knows what their mama likes! 



I have a few more Laundry room things to show you today. You all have been so sweet to be a part of my Laundry room makeover!

Remember this picture? Well my cabinets did not need anything done to them but a good cleaning. So my goal was to place little items I loved on top of the cabinet.


 Spray painted this basket yellow. I found this cute bottle at Walmart marked down to 75 cents and added some blue fabric softener.




 Talked my youngest daughter out of the C sign since her last name no longer begins with a C. Old bottle vase I had stored and a yard sale basket I painted blue.


Worked for me!




Before picture.



Spray painted the shelf white and then replaced the items on the shelf with these items. You just can't beat decorative bottles and jars.



And this...You can't go wrong with a basket of any kind!


Don't you just love my clock! Found this cutie at Ross.



Awe...had to have this! It is my life story...I am simply a product of God's Amazing Grace!


I am happy with how these little items came together.


Spray painted these two frames.



Took a little of the chevron paper I had left and then the definition of laundry and it turned out really cute.


Some more little laundry signs for this frame....


Found this jar at Ross......

And this one.......


Had this cute little bucket with burlap on it....



Found two floating shelves at a yard sale for $4 so I spray painted them white and here ya go.



Remember my new little white bench I showed to you?



Found these cute pillows at Walmart for $5 each. Amazing what a splash of color will do!


Loving my new laundry room! Think I will just sit on the bench a while and think about the pictures of my grandbabies that I want to do for this....



Old picture frame spray painted blue with twine. I have the little miniature clothes pins to hang their pictures with too! So cute....


See ya soon with the last of the Laundry room!

Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  1. I'm so glad you had a great weekend! It's good to be pampered once in awhile! Your laundry room is so pretty. I love the old frame with the twine for your grandbabies' pictures. That's a great idea. I wish my little laundry room had a bit more room but I'm happy to have it. My cousin had to go outside (In the winter rains) for several years to do her laundry in the garage. There was no door from the garage into her home - so how can I complain? Have a great week, dear friend.

Hiding the Ugly Hot Water Heater

 I shared that I wanted to hide my ugly hot water heater in my laundry room with you a few weeks ago. It just stuck out like a sore thumb. But after all it is a hot water heater right? So my man took a piece of wood (not real wood) but it worked and built a frame for me. So now to see if it would fit and it did. I painted it white and did not like the texture it had even after two coats of white. (rule of thumb...you get what you pay for and the wood was cheap) But I wasn't going to let it whip me!  Found some contact paper at Walmart in the gray and white. Covered the front with the contact paper and loved the look. The top was covered with a piece of painted wood as well and worked perfect to place this on top... And this.... Added a clothes basket in the corner and here was the top.... Yep, no longer an eye sore to me! Went perfect with my gray walls and gray and white floor. Remember the wood tray I bought at a yard

{Pinterest Favs and My Simple Life}

  Isn't this Coleus just beautiful? I have about 4 of these pretties that I started out in just one pot and the next thing I knew I was replanting in different pots. We had a girls day out this past Friday and I enjoyed our outing so much. Cracker Barrel was first on the list and then shopping. Nothing like a girls day with your girls. Sure does refresh the soul doesn't it? I have had this little sign for a few years now and found it at Tractor Supply . I just love it but let me tell y'all something...you can find all kinds of goodies at Tractor Supply. I went in recently to look for some seeds and well, let's just say I came out with more than I went in for!  Now for Pinterest Favs and these Yummy Chewy Brown Sugar Cookies are first on the list!   This recipe is tried and true.  YOU CAN'T EAT JUST ONE ! These things will melt in your mouth. The recipe made a large batch so needless to say family and friends were gifted cookies! Next time I make these I think I wi

{A Few of my Favorite Things}

  I hope that you all have had a wonderful weekend.  The weekends just seem to go by too quickly don't they? I wanted to share a few of my favorite things today that sits on my corner hutch in my kitchen. Most of all my blue and white dishes belonged to my grandmother and motherinlove so they hold special memories for me to say the least. I have a few that I have picked up here or there or that was gifted to me. Since I enjoy displaying my favorite blue and white dishes, most often I add seasonal or holiday decor to them and I also enjoy the little pops of color added to the blue and white.  Since the bottom of my corner shelf has a cabinet I was able to store a few of my dishes there. But, I have more lovely blue and white dishes stored in my She-Shed. I guess I need to have a blue and white party one day.     Though I have lots of dishes I do have some favorite's, how about you? Do you have favorite dishes?   Recently it was "National Daughter's Day" . So I ju
