I need some inspiration!

I'm getting ready to re-do my guest room and I need your help!
It's Americana now....but if you were a guest at my house which inspiration would you choose? Be sure and let me know....
Remember....I'm only doing a re-design. Changing a few things but mostly doing painting and decor on walls and all the bed linens to achieve the look I want.
I love the pillows stacked that way for a change.
I really like the pink and green (how about you?) Not sure I'll paint the walls right now though


I'm lovin' the white linens. Looks so clean!
Chandelier instead of a ceiling fan, do you think that would work in HOT AZ?

Oh, so sooooothing~
Terri.....I ♥,♥,♥ this grouping on the wall!! Do you?
I'm really into hats lately! And I ♥ the canape above the bed. Reminds me of what Diane did in my french country!
Just soft and relaxing!
A blue room? I never thought about it but I like this one.
I have a table similar to this one.....maybe we could do something fun with it
I think I could sleep like a baby in this room. I'm really liking the yellow for a change.

Last night was Chutes and Ladders night
cuz Tanner had a sleep over all by himself

He is the most fun little boy!
As we were playing....this is how the conversation went

Tanner: Grandma, be sure when I go home I have both of my socks matching
Me: Ok, what's the big deal about that?
Tanner: These are the only socks I have that are matching and if I don't have them I will have to wear my shoes without socks and that's uncomfortable
Me: So Tanner, what happened to all of your socks?
Tanner: We'll our washer is broken
Me: What does that have to do with your socks missing?
Tanner: It eats socks! SERIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Me: Let's run up to Walmart and get you some socks, (poor little thing!)

We bought 10 pair! Yippeeeeee!
Now this Grandma can sleep knowing her little Grandson has socks!
Do you think he knows I'm a push over?????

You must!
They are to die for.....well maybe not die for....but they definitely
are worth the few pounds they will put on!
I can thank MARLA for this little distraction.....she started something.
Try 'em with a Diet Cherry Dr. Pepper........
Oh so worth it!

Sugar and Spice and everything nice.....

Ok, we all know girls rock......but.....
tonight when I was checking on all my favorite spots
I found these wonderful "Cowgirl" cookies

You must go HERE and see just exactly how it's done
I love her idea of changing the color of the M & M's and you totally change what or who the cookie is for.
I especially love the information she gave us about the smooth mason jar
I never know these existed
I'll be on the lookout for them now
I think this looks like such a fun idea
Let's try it out, shall we?
Anyone wannnna come over and join me on this little project?

I ♥ homemade bread..............

I told you about our Home Teachers bringing homemade bread last weekend....
Well....tonight the doorbell rang and it was.........
Yep, you guessed it
Bringing gifts........
Yep, you guess it again..........

I ♥ bread
and it has no carbs.......right? Wrong!
I am Jenny's visiting teacher
Our lesson this month was on Knowledge....continue to learn
Instead of a "to do" list, make a "to learn" list.......
Jenny is a good example, she learned today to make bread.....
her first try and I think it's a winner!

Sweetiepie's already planning on homemade bread toast
(made by Jenny)
and homemade raspberry jam (made by Babydoll) for breakfast.
Breakfast of Champions!
How come everyone can bake bread but ME?
Guess I'd better add that to my bucket list. Will someone out there teach me?
Good job, Jenny!

Are your shoes muddy?

We had Home Teachers tonight.....

They walked in.....
We all shook hands......
Then we proceeded to the couch.......
Before they stepped on the carpets.......
They both took their shoes off......

I've got them trained.....funniest thing!~

This morning they delivered home made bread.....
I'd have taken a picture but it's already about gone

Strawberry fields forever.......

I was cleaning out my linen closet the other day and found this darling strawberry tablecloth. I can't remember where it came from, my Mom, a garage sale, the tablecloth fairy....I don't know, but I decided it needed to be in the SPOTLIGHT, so I put it on my dining room table and loaded it down with, what else, STRAWBERRIES!
