It’s contest time again over at Olioboard. This round of contests includes a “Design a Summer Loft” challenge. The above design board is what I came up with. I thought the citrus prints just shout Summer! That was the jumping off point for the rest of the room. If you would like more information on any of the furnishings or accessories, please click here.
Thank you for joining me for Moodbaord Monday!

Happy Monday everyone. Hope you all had a wonderful Easter. We have had beautiful summer-like weather here for the last week. The kind of weather that makes you just want to be outside and soak up the sunshine and not do much more. And that’s what the kids and I did last week, a whole lotta noothin’. The kids were home with me all week for Spring Break. It was so nice to be able to sleep in, play outside and basically just goof off. So, since I was in such a summery-y mood I created this moodboard over at Olioboard. Tomorrow’s forecast calls for cold temperatures and lots of rain. Maybe I can get back to some projects. I am just finishing up a few and am hoping to share very soon. Thanks for stopping by for this Moodboard Monday!

I’m taking a little time off from projects to spend time being silly and having fun with my kids. (Well, I’m not going to completely quit all my projects. I’ve been letting the kids sleep in every morning so I’ll have a little time to myself to get a little work done.)
Time has flown by this summer and I’m realizing, what seemed like a long leisurely summer, is quickly slipping away.
We are going to spend the next few weeks making the most of our time together, hopefully making memories that will last a lifetime.
Hope you are having a memorable summer too!

I found this cute little wheel barrow/planter at my favorite thrift store today. I think this is the first thrifted treasure I have used “as-is” (except my dishes). I love the rusty front wheel and the scuffed, white-washed finish. It is the perfect little accent to balance my step ladder/planter. While I was working on getting this planter in just the right spot and filling it with flowers, my kids were enjoying a lazy summer evening.
First popsicles for dessert, slurped up quickly before they melt.
Followed by splash time.
Hope you are keeping cool and enjoying your summer!

I have finally got around to dressing my Spring/Summer mantel. I meant to do this the day after I took down my St. Patrick’s Day mantel. Fate however, had other plans for me. First we had out-of-town guests stay with us. Next, we all had a bout with the stomach flu. And then I got a nasty kidney infection. So finally after a month, I think (fingers crossed) I can get back to business-as-usual.
This year I recycled a few items, including this bird and DIY piece of art from last year’s Summer mantel.
I made the mossy “S”. I just cut a sheet of moss to fit my purchased S. The rest of this side was borrowed from other displays I have around the house.
Next, I want to tackle the front porch. It needs some Summer-izing! I have not decided on a fun Summer theme yet though. There are so many possibilities. I need to narrow it down and get goin’! Happy Weekend everyone!
