Three Peas in a Pod

These greens are perfect for the summer! They remind me of a crisp apple, snap peas, and fresh cut grass. They would looked great heaped in a glass bowl on your dining room table for a quick, fresh splash of color! Or, hang them from a chandelier with hot pink ribbon for a preppy look!

We hope you are enjoying all the sights, sounds and smells of summer!
Have a great day!

My Yellow House

This is my Yellow House. Most times if someone is wondering where I live, my answer is usually, "The Yellow House". And people usually know. Although it looks pretty yellow, this picture is not giving the yellow color justice. It is truly a brighter yellow. You may even say 'highlighter yellow'.

Anyway, I wanted to show everyone a picture of our home because we recently came very close to leaving our yellow house. Someone wanted to buy our house, even though it was not for sale. We almost went through with the offer, but in the end our love for our home overrode the offer. And even though we are staying, we appreciate the compliment on our house.

I think my love of color intensified when we moved into our home four years ago. Although the outside was bright yellow, the inside walls were all high gloss white. This came with the exception of a few rooms with very retro wallpaper, that we happen to love. Anyway, I think it is ironic that I am now selling every color in the color wheel of glass ornaments and coordinating colors schemes for decorative tabletop trees. My inside walls are still high gloss white, with the exception of our dining room. We recently painted our dining room a deep chocolate brown. It is very sharp and sometimes even looks black or eggplant.

I hope you have enjoyed the picture of my house. My goal is to create a little portfolio of the rooms with coordinating groupings of the ornaments, after we paint or update each room. Let's see if I can keep up with my challange.

I am trying to add the blog buttons necessary to enter the great contest with Matthew Mead. This contest will give the opportunity of a photo shoot at your own house. I have one more day to meet all the requirements and enter the contest. Hope I can finish in time. Good luck to all the contestants!

Happy 4th of July!

Celebrate and Honor all the Servicemen in your life! Thank you to all our troops for all you do for us.

Show your patriotism and collect an Uncle Sam nutcracker. A great way to celebrate and decorate this time of year!

Another great way to show your patriotism is to display a Red, White & Blue decorative tabletop tree. How fun it is to celebrate and decorate ALL year long! Happy 4th of July! Enjoy!
