Around my house . . .

Right now I am enjoying these things around my house….

Fresh lettuce and herbs from this friend..she amazes me what she can grow!

Little flowers in my windowsill from a certain 5 year old boy!

And decor wise…

This tableskirt from Beadboard Upcountry in Brenham, Texas…I picked it up today and it has officially kicked off the master bedroom redo…Ralph Lauren (ca. 1998) has left the building people, I was having trouble giving him up but this lovely linen skirt is helping me with our separation anxiety…more on the headboard decision and other fabrics coming soon. . .

Lastly, these lights are up and loving them…they are different but I like them!

OK that is it for now..just wanted to share some spring fun around here..the little things, whether they are flowers from a sweet boy or pretty tablecloth… well they all make the dirty dishes and lack of sleep a little more fun and bearable, at least for me… 

What is brightening your daily life these days????

  1. I LOVE this post and seeing the things that are brightening your days at home. And I really like the linen tableskirt!

    Brightening my days lately – newly painted sage green walls, soon-to-be-installed hopefully wood floors, a certain someone who came home from working in Mexico, emails from my sister and from a special decorator friend ;;;;; a great pillow from PB, two much-needed and now completed home repairs, Dunkin Donuts coffee in the morning.

  2. Hey Holly,

    I went to the website where you got the tableskirt but couldn’t find an answer to this question: what other colors does it come in and also, do they have them for 30″ round tables? I love the way it is gathered around the sides. That’s exactly what I’ve been looking for but in white or off-white. I’m in Houston and will have to try that store sometime.

  3. Hi Holly!
    Brightening my day was you lovin your new tableskirt. Thanks for giving Beadboard the opportunity….. Now maybe we can figure out a way to get you some Arte Pura, Sigh….Maryanne xo

  4. LOVE the porch!!!! Those lights are amazing!!! Those would brighten my days 😉

  5. Ooooh, those lights are amazing. Very inspiring to me.

  6. I just love that porch and the outside eating area! It looks so magical…I would love a place like that in my home!

  7. If Marion or anyone else would like info on our tableskirts, just e-mail us at we would be happy to help.:)Maryanne

  8. Lights look fabulous. Just bought 2 tables from Great Stuff by Paul and some antique photos on etsy.

  9. A glass of sweet tea on your fabulous porch would certainly brighten a girl’s day! Love it!

  10. That tableskirt is beautiful! It looks so simple…but why does it look so different at the same time??? Who knows…but I love it. Of course, I love linen anything. I have some linen that I need to have monogrammed for our master bedroom headboard. I had “upholstered” it with white on white quilts…term I use ever so loosely….and I want to make a strip going down it with our monogram. One of the five million things on my to-do list……………((sigh))

  11. How do I love your back porch….let me count the ways….it looks so placid and restful!

  12. Love the post! It’s truly the little things in life i.e. a new table cloth and flowers from a sweetie, that make our world go ’round.

    Happy Friday.
