Visit a New Blogger's Beautiful Home

Good Afternoon Friends!

Today I'm so excited to introduce you to a new blogger/Instagram friend.
I found Wendy's Instagram feed a few weeks ago and was instantly smitten.
It will only take a second for you to see why.


Wendy's home is beautiful yet family and pet friendly.


She splashes around color with ease and her accessories span decades of time.
I could sit and look at these all day long.


Wendy just started her blog Life On the Shady Grove last week. 
In talking back and forth with her she shared, 

"my desire is to encourage and help women to be ok with themselves, exactly how 
God made them and to help them make their house a home they love." 


The About Me page on her blog is one of the best I've ever read.
Y'all know that I think of my blog as girlfriend space and Wendy seems like she
could come right in, have a Diet Coke, and be a girlfriend for years to come.
Let me just say that anyone with those red drapes can be my friend.


There are so many pictures I'd love to share with you from her blog but don't want to steal her show.
Please go over and welcome Wendy to the blogging world.
