Show & Tell Friday

Happy Friday, Blog Land Friends!
I am so grateful to have my blog page finally back in proper order! I guess I don't deal well with disorganization - my husband and kids could tell you a thing or two about that!! Thanks to the ladies at thecutestblogontheblock.com all is well in my tiny little blog world once again!

Now on to my Friday Show & Tell, which is hosted by Kelli at There's No Place Like Home, kellishouse.blogspot.com. I thought I would show you a few more things in my house.

Have a perfect weekend, everyone!



My kitchen has a recessed ceiling. The walls are painted antique white and the little ceiling alcove is a rosy pink. I painted these vines, flowers, and bird nests around the alcove.






















These are the shower curtains and window in my bathroom. The walls are painted raspberry.















I love shells! I can hardly wait to get them out in the spring and I can hardly stand to put them away in the fall. The cloche sits on my living room cocktail table with a large conch shell inside. The mantle is decorated for spring/summer with shells and candles. I adore the print, Children Playing On The Beach by Mary Cassatt. I always use some of the shells from my collection along the mantle too.



These pictures are of a small bathroom in our kitchen. The walls are a soft sage green and I painted these vines and flowers.

Love that painting woman. I never knew you had the print on your mantle. How cute is that...but let me tell you....Hobby Lobby has aisles and aisles of Harvest decorations.....better enjoy those seashells....I feel a nip in the air a coming!

Very pretty paint colors. I like to decorate with seashhells during the summer as well.

Thanks for sharing your artwork. I'm glad that you have gotten your blog issues worked out.

Beautiful decorative touches with your show n tell this week. I also love your blog design and my heart fluttered at your adorable 'footsies' photo on your sidebar!!!


My show n tell isn't what I had planned to do this week, the hurricane Dolly prevented me to have much online time this week since the time I did have was updating on the storm coming through our area. Next week, I hope to have my 'tears' show n tell. This week, I opted with photos I had on the computer already - bric a brac in our master bath. Come by if you can. I'd love a visit from you...and, HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND.

Oh, my -- how gorgeous. I have always loved this style of painting and decorating, but I can't paint at all. Just lovely! You ought to send a layout to some decorating magazine like Romantic Homes.

Wow! I love your bloggie home, it's so pretty and feminine :). What beautiful work you've done, is it all free hand? I've done a couple small things but nothing like you have done, it's very impressive. Your colors are all perfectly matched, I had to go back and click on your pictures to get a closer look...amazingly beautiful!

Have a Fantastic Friday!
Kathi :)
