Vanity Redo

Took forever to find the right piece to start with!
In place and first coat of paint

Hole is cut, ledge is built and sheetrocked. Time for the tile...

The guest bath was originally part of the formal dining room.  When we moved the dining room to the waterside of the house it enabled us to enlarge the kitchen and put in a large guest bath/laundry room. Since we do all of the remodeling ourselves, we were extremely happy to discover that we could vault the ceiling in this area when we were relocating the duct work.  I love DIY!!!

Let's get this party started!!

We started doing some redecorating at Foxy's recently and have been gathering ideas.  Upstairs has been painted and now it is time to get busy on the downstairs before beautiful weather returns and we head to the dock for the summer.

After living with bright, primary colors for the last few years we have decided to try more neutral shades this time around. 

I had wonderful luck the other day on a trip to Jo-ann's Fabric and came home with an abbondonza of  items and ideas for more!

And a stop at Ross Dress for Less scored a couple of awesome accent pillows for the sectional.
Love petal pillows and the creamy color is perfect!!

I am ready to get this party started!!

Tablescape Thursday

African Dinner
for the Dunbars

Had to make a quick run to Dollar Tree for clear glass plates so the wicker chargers would shine!

Fun to find articles around the house to add to the table.

Camellias are in Bloom!!

Camellia love!!

Winter in the Panhandle and I wait all year for the camellias to put on their show!  This year they are outdoing themselves.  

The camellias are in bloom and they couldn't be lovelier.  I just love my Florida winters.
