A Little Home Decor

Happy Tuesday! I had a to-do list a mile long today: I had to buy a graduation card, look for small disposable serving cups with lids (for a small gathering coming up...I needed something to serve individual portions of salsa) a Walmart trip, stock up on sunscreen for upcoming trips, pick up pool tags, pay car tags, change a/c filters, look for plain napkins for the guest bath, order a cake, shop for Angelonia for the garden (since they did so well last year and even survived a freeze last winter) then a stop by the bank and I was done. Whew! 

Sorry for the delay in posting lately, but as you can see, we've been very busy. :) All in the last month, we've had prom weekend (two, actually) senior banquet, a film banquet at our house (that was a lot of fun and we even escaped the rain) then graduation and all that's associated with that. Now we just have a small gathering this weekend and then hopefully things will calm down for a couple of weeks until all our summer birthdays start up. :) 

And in the middle of all this, something else exciting was brewing. I can't say exactly what yet, but it has to do with a move (and no, we're not the ones moving) I'm such a tease, right? Lol! Hopefully I can share the news soon. :) 

I took some home decor pics the other day (while the house was clean) and thought I'd share a few. Am I the only one who likes to take pics after I clean? :) 

The lighting worked out and I was able to get a good shot of the dining room. I'm still loving the DIY CHANDY MAKEOVER. The bulbs make all the difference. 

Those leopard print pillows are still going strong. I don't know when I'll ever tire of them. :) 

I haven't changed my mantel in a long time, which is unusual for me. 

I had to laugh at Miss Holly Joaquin's silhouette in the window. I decided to keep my windows "naked" when we did our MASTER BEDROOM MAKEOVER and I still love it that way. You can't really tell in this sun filled pic, but we just framed the windows out and left them bare without any curtains or window treatments of any kind (other than the wood blinds) 

And that's about it. Thanks for stopping by!
