China Hutch Makeover

A-DELIGHTSOME-LIFE-PAINTED-CHINA-HUTCH

Tea at The Potted Geranium

A-DELIGHTSOME-LIFE-TEA-AT-THE-POTTED-GERANIUM

A Sweet Tea Story There was a conspiracy brewing that I was not aware of. A couple weeks back, my eldest daughter said she wanted to get together; she, myself and my youngest daughter - to go shopping. I'm thrilled at the opportunity to go - it is not easy with all of our busy schedules. What I didn't know was that these girls had been planning … [Read more...]

Curtains, Cushions and Pillows

A-DELIGHTSOME-LIFE-CURTAINS-CUSHIONS-PILLOWS-DINING-ROOM

For the Windowseat and the French doors I have been staring at my newly painted dining room. Sitting on the couch in the living room looking toward the dining room - I'm amazed at the difference this beautiful blue color has created. Like bringing a picture into focus, the changes that I've been planning and envisioning for the dining room are … [Read more...]

New Life

A-DELIGHTSOME-LIFE-LA-MARNE-ROSE-BLOOM

She's Coming Back Several weeks back, I noticed my beloved La Marne rose, the one that touched my heart when we were looking at this house some eleven plus years back, had some damage from the winter's harsh ice storms. You could tell she was an old rose by the size of her trunks and she reached over seven feet tall. I have not done much to … [Read more...]
