Small Laundry Room Ideas

If you've been with me for a long time, you know I like to fix up my laundry room spaces.  Laundry spaces are necessary in our homes and there's no reason they shouldn't be pretty too. We all have to do laundry, but why not have an enjoyable space while we're at it? Our current laundry room is just a small box of a room, with only space enough for the washer and dryer and not much else, so I'm trying to think outside the box so to speak and decorate UP on the wall to make this space cute and … [Read More...]

Feature Friday: Kim’s Destin Beach Cottage

Hey there friends!  You're reading this after the big monster storm Hurricane Michael came blowing through the Panhandle and I'm glad to say Destin was spared the worst of it, so we think Kim's house is fine. I'm so very sad for that area and all the devastation that we've seen on the news. I have several old friends and extended family who live in Panama City and it was hit hard as well as those … Read More»

Apple Dumplings

Happy Thursday to you all!  I've got a fun little Fall recipe to share with you today that I just made this week.  It all started when my mom heard about these apple dumplings from a lady friend of hers up in the NC mountains.  Seems she had gotten The Pioneer Woman's recipe for Apple Dumplings and tried them and loved them, so she was telling my mama about them. So mom asked me to print off the … Read More»

Fashion over 50: Fall Staples

Hey there friends!  Today's Fashion post is a little different than most. I don't have new outfits to share with you.  We were at the beach last week in 90 degree weather and I was in shorts and bathing suits almost the whole time, so nothing much to share from that.  Fall is elusive right now in Georgia, but we have hopes of her showing up soon.  So that means I'm still not wearing my booties and … Read More»

A Few Days in Destin

Last week, we had the chance to spend a few days at the beach with Mark's family.  We made plans earlier this year to go to the beach for a few days and it was fun when it finally got here.  The weather couldn't have been more perfect, in fact it felt like summer still, since our weather here in the South has not yet turned to Fallish temps.  It was downright hot!  But, we sure enjoyed sitting on … Read More»

Feature Friday: Simply Southern Cottage

Hey friends and welcome to Feature Friday today!  I have a really fun and special feature today.  I met Sara not long ago on Instagram as Simply Southern Cottage, when I saw her beautiful cottage style home pictures and started reading her story on her blog.  Her story echoed my own so much, that she had gone through a divorce as I did a few years ago and was starting over with her cottage home … Read More»

24 Hours in Las Vegas

Hey again!  Since I went on a fun brand trip last week, I thought I'd share it with you all.  I've been so fortunate and blessed to be able to work with so many brands over the years and this was a new type collaboration and it happened because I'm a Baby Boomer, so cheers for that! There are some advantages of getting older, right?  Really and truly, I'm so grateful that I get to do this job of a … Read More»

Fashion over 50: Fall Maxi Dress

Happy Wednesday again! Time for Fashion over 50.  Mark and I are headed to the beach for a few days in Destin, so looking forward to a few days away and time on the beach.  We haven't been to the beach all summer and this trip is with several of his family members.  His family has gotten so big that they don't all try to go to the beach together now, so this is a smaller group than last year.  And … Read More»
