Happy Summer

Hi Friends, sorry I've been MIA for so long, I've been one busy gal this year. I'm not giving up blogging, but will post when I can and more during the holidays, my favorite time to share. :)
This past weekend, my husband and I went to a winery and when I saw this arrangement I just had to snap a photo, along with some other ladies who found the arrangement just as enduring as I. What a cute and unique idea, right?
Such a wonderful and picturesque day.
A little wine, some pretty scenery, and a little food...what could be better?
 So let's move on to a little decorating, shall we? I completely rearranged a few of my rooms in the house, for example, I moved the dining room to the family room. In the dining area, I created a computer niche. It's "practical" vs. pretty, but it works for us.
I definitely like display shelves, so these work for me. I love decorating throughout the seasons, so these shelves create the perfect backdrop to be able to display seasonal items for fall, winter, spring and summer.
I may add some trim at a later date. These are cheap Walmart shelves, $29.00 a piece.
Also, removing the dining room from this area really opened things up, it's a lot more airy now.
I get bored with my knick-knacks, so I like to go down to my basement storage room and go shopping, and change things up.
 I change out my greenery for the seasons, too! 
 I'm completely obsessed with chicken and rooster decor. I found this at HomeGoods.
 I added some sunflowers to my tin flower baskets.
I placed these egg holders in the center of this glass cloche platter.

A few more accessories I found at HomeGoods.
Lastly, this is our newest family member, Ralphie the Yorkie, all of 3 pounds. He is such a sweet and entertaining puppy. We absolutely adore him.  
Thanks for visiting, and enjoy the summer! 
XOXO ~ Liz

  3. Hi Liz! I was just sure you had quit blogging but then a post popped up from you today! Your shelves look so pretty how you've dressed them up. Your home is so beautiful and I've missed seeing what you've been up to. Oh,your little Ralphie is so adorable! What a darling. I broke my knee cap before Christmas and have been pretty limited but as I'm much better now we want to get another dog. Glad to see you.

  7. Love the boots and the visit to the winery looks like it was a wonderful visit. The bookcases look like they do the job and fit in nicely. Little Ralphie is the cutest! My friend just got one too- she named her Bella and she's the sweetest!
    Enjoy your summer!

  8. My heart did a little flip-flop when I saw this post from you, Liz...you have truly been missed! I think your computer niche turned out great. I think it's so important to use the spaces in a home to their fullest potential and how they serve your family the best. I hope you are enjoying your new home and being a Southern Girl again. Ralphie is adorable, and I'm sure he is dishing out tons of fun for you and your family.

    Warm hugs,
    Carol
