First Friday Home Tour Featuring An Opulent Cottage


Happy first Friday in July! This is the day of the month when I get to feature another blogger's beautiful home. All of my color loving friends will be happy today to have some peeks of Andrea's home at Opulent Cottage. Andrea lives in a beautiful historic area of Dallas in the sweetest cottage that she shares with her husband, daughter, and a few rescued cats.  I've been reading her blog for a long time as I'm sure some of you have.

This Is My We're Not Going On a Vacation so I Need Good Books List

Hi Friends! 
What is it about summer that makes me want to read? Do you feel that way? Reading on the porch, reading at the pool, reading at the beach...it all sounds so carefree and wonderful. Almost every year I put together a list of books I'd like to read. Here's my list for this summer.

A Less Expensive Way to Use Your Keurig Coffee Maker

Good morning y'all! I'm so glad you are here today for June's Ten on the 10th. This is when a group of fun bloggers share ideas for life that all cost less than $10.

Have you had your coffee yet? I'm working on my first cup and wanted to share with you a trick we employ using a Keurig coffee maker but not buying those doggone expensive pods.

I Think We Need Some Pink

Long ago and far away, one of my best friends had a kitchen with pink touches throughout. I just loved it! Pink was not the in color at the time but that was of no worry because this was a happy gathering spot for kids and families.  

Now that we are working on our new house I've noticed a lot of pink in the world. Have you noticed? I like it a lot!! Fortunately, the manly man that I'm married to is very sweet to let me do the decorating so I think a little pink might be working its way into our home.

Let's see...

How about some pretty pink art on an open shelf in the kitchen?  I love everything at A Thing Created on Etsy.  Peonies in a Jar is calling my name.
