Round Tables.

I've always been drawn to long farm tables, but sometimes it is nice to sit at a round table and keep everyone in the same conversation.

What about you all?  What kind of dining table do you prefer?  Round, square, oval, long?  I love my long farm table because it seats a lot of people and is so useful for projects - maybe one day I will have a house where I can have both!

Latest Flea Market Adventures.

On our latest flea market adventure we were caught in a massive rainstorm after the first 30 minutes!  It was a bummer because we got there early and saw some good stuff right off the bat!  Once the rain started everyone covered up their stuff and we ventured into the barns.  But the barns are like a stampede during a rainstorm and the vendors tend to be much more expensive, so we left and will try again another day!

I loved this set of painted table and chairs - $85 for 8 chairs and a table!  I think it would look great outside on a patio!

Gorgeous caned chairs!

Who doesn't love a peanut swing - at least that is what I always call these!  I'm sure they have a proper name!

I loved this basket built onto a cart!  It would make an adorable bassinet - or maybe it is a bassinet that would make an adorable basket for storage.  Either way - I was intrigued and trying to think of a place where I could use it!

Now I am really itching to get to the next big market - the season is almost over!

Orla Kiely Wallpaper.

We wallpapered Rach's daughter's bedroom with this super cute Orla Kiely wallpaper this week.  Actually, Rach really did all of the work while I talked and took pictures!

I need to take some better pictures - but couldn't resist sharing these!  The room looks completely different - there used to be vertical stripes in there.

It was definently the easiest wallpaper we have ever worked with.  Bea and Eloise are so excited about their new room!

Olive tried to get into the action too - but she eventually got bored and sat back and watched!

I will post better pictures when the room is put back together!

Say hello to the newest dog in the family!

Our nephew Max has his first dog!  He is a sweetie and full of energy - already his loyal companion!

And he is super cute too!  Love those big ears!

Lazy Summer Days.

Wishing I had some lazy summer days ahead of me that looked like this.

Sitting on a dock by the water.

Bike rides.

Lounging on the water.

Staying at a super cute house on the beach.

Hanging out on the porch.

Dinner al fresco.

Sleeping with the doors wide open.

Breakfast in bed.

Eating cherries all day!

A girl can dream - the summer isn't over yet!
