Fourth of July Celebration

Hi friends!

Summer is here, the kids are already enjoying the long, care free days the season brings, and of course, I'm with them, not only enjoying the warm days of summer, but also the company of my family that came to visit us for a couple of weeks.

Our days have been full of activity... Going to the pool, visiting places, going shopping...
So much so, that it has also affected our meal times, forcing us to have

Summer Mantel with Seashells On the Beach Artwork

Hi friends,

Well, I finally had the time to upload and edit the pics of how this project was done.

While going thru some of the pictures in this post, I couldn't help but laugh at all the things that happened. Of course, not even a smirk came to my face when in the middle of all this, because as I told you during my Summer Home tour, this was a project full of mistakes.

This whole project was inspired by

Blue and White Coastal Tablescape

Hi friends,

Thank you so much for all your kind words on my previous post, the Summer home tour.
You definitely put a big smile on my face. :)

Summer tours are not easy. At least, if you want to present something new.
There's lots of cleaning, switching stuff from one side to another, creating little things...
And perhaps, big things that would make something look much better in certain space...
Wait for a sunny day to take pics, and

Going Away Party Ideas

A week ago, my sister-in-law threw a Going Away Party to my niece. I might say it's a bittersweet moment because on the one hand, we're extremely excited and proud for all what this girl has accomplished so far in her life. On the other hand, it's a bit scary, because it's the first time she's going to live far away from home.

She's moving away from here, Maryland, to an apartment in California with a brand new job. A huge milestone in her life.

The party was kind of a
