"Backdating" the master bath

Yes, I did mean backdating. Most people update their spaces, but I wanted a vintage look that might have been here in the original house...and I had to do it with a non-existent budget.

Summer dining alfresco

We love to eat outside on the deck in the summer. OK, I like to eat outside on the deck and I would do it every meal if I could.

Blooms from the garden...

I tend to share the everyday things over on my facebook page and neglect sharing them here, so, if you don't want to miss anything, I would love to have you join me HERE.
I absolutely *love* pink lilies...specifically pink Asiatic lilies. I grew them for the first time when I lived in D.C., and even though I took the bulbs when I moved, sadly, the North Carolina squirrels ate them. My sweet mother gifted me with a box of assorted pink bulbs this year and this is the first one to bloom. Oh my how I love them:-)

Ideal Home and Garden feature!

Thank you to Reva and staff for this feature in May 2013 Ideal Home and Garden Magazine! What a beautiful story this is and I am seriously honored to be part of it:-)

Vintage, Southern front porch and a feature...

Last week I shared part of the back porch makeover HERE, now we are heading around to the front porch which also got some low-cost vintage styling.

The sign came off the original house of my grandparents here, and my dad let me have it several years ago.

Repurposing a screen door as a porch divider

I posted part of the back porch makeover last week so I thought I would show you all how I repurposed another of my old screen doors.

Progress on the back porch

It seems like we have been working on the porches for months.  We had to pressure wash, then I stained the decking and re-painted the back railings. I wanted a more vintage, country kind of style back here so I have done some changing.
