Sweet Escape {in your own backyard}

Sweet Escape {in your own backyard}

Love this adorable little garden shed turned sweet escape!

Sigh.

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 ! Congratulations Maridith!

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

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.
