Sweet Escape {in your own backyard}

Sweet Escape {in your own backyard}

Love this adorable little garden shed turned sweet escape!


Where are you escaping to this weekend?

Where am I escaping to? Besides having a party at my house tonight and then going to Portland for my middle daughter’s graduation party, I am “escaping” to Home Depot to spend a gift card!  Yippee!!! I’m hoping to get something I need for my backyard. No, it isn’t a garden shed. It isn’t that big of a gift card!

Next week I’ll be sharing what I found, and just so you don’t all get too jealous of my little shopping spree, I’ll be offering YOU the chance to win your own $100 gift card! Stay tuned for that next week.

I have some great summer giveaways planned over the next few months!

And now, to finally announce the winner of the Decorating is Fun book…ta da, Maridith The Procrastinator Crafter! Congratulations Maridith!

Sweet Escape {in your own backyard}

It is time to share our beautiful life posts or comments.
This is our once a week chance to pause and
remember the beauty we found or created this week…
a beautiful life is the one we
create on purpose — it doesn’t just happen.
Create & savor small moments of beauty!

Charming Details: Child-Sized Chairs

I love these sweet little chairs lined up at the coffee table!

I remember reading once that every living room should have
at least one child-sized chair, even if the homeowners have no children.

I have always loved that unpretentious advice.

A very charming detail.
