Winning The Battle - Losing The War - I'm Not Doing Either

I love a pretty yard and from time to time mine looks pretty good.  Right now, not so much.  Hubby uses the patio as his work space, everything is done there.  Sawing, repotting plants and anything else he chooses to get involved in, so it is usually a pile of stuff that is totally a mess.  

I got everything picked up and cleaned up.  Now I could sit here and have a glass of tea.  Love this.

Third Time Is Charm - Right?

I've ordered two different comforter sets and returned both of them.  Why do they look so great in the picture and the description sounds perfect, only to get them and they are really bad.  Now these weren't cheap sets, but they looked like they came from the 5 and Dime when they got here.

Ok, I am pushing on and I have ordered this set.

Vue® Barcelona Convertible King Coverlet-to-Duvet Cover Set in Ivory
  • Get two beautiful bedding sets in one with the Barcelona Convertible Coverlet-to-Duvet Cover Set from Vue
  • By inserting a comforter (sold separately) you can turn this light and breathable quilted coverlet into a warm and cozy duvet cover
  • Perfect for enjoying year-round comfort without having to swap bedding ensembles
  • Design features modern floral medallions and beautiful scrolling leaves
  • Button-up closure
This also sounds perfect doesn't it.  Well, let's wait and see.

Master Bedroom Drapes Are Done - Tutorial

This bedroom makeover is going slower than molasses.  I can't seem to find bedding that I like, but I am pressing on.  Hopefully I will find something soon.  In the meantime, I made the drapes.  Well, I sort of cheated, I bought a pair of the Lenda drapes from Ikea.  You can't beat them for the price.  They have a great linen texture and for $34 for a pair,  wow, material costs more than that.  I shows you several different ideas for customizing drapes here.  I did a twist on the stripe edge.

I dressed them up with a more custom look by adding two black bands to the edge.

Welcome to the 270th Inspire Me Tuesday.  Last week we had a ton of fabulous projects, diy's and recipes.  So much to see and be inspired by.  As you know if you follow along, I am trying to do a mini makeover in our master bedroom, so far it is slow going, but not these ladies.  Here are some fabulous rooms.

Talk about a luxurious and inviting guest room.  Everyday Living has filled her small guest room with such beautiful linens and amenities.  Every detail has been carefully thought out.  STUNNING!!!!!  You really need to see this room, she thought of every thing a guest could possibly need or want.

I Found Another Lamp - Want To Do A Little Shopping

Seems like I have been shuffling lamps around all over the house.  I borrowed the candlestick lamp off of the buffet in the dining area for hubby's nightstand, so that left the buffet looking really naked.  I remembered seeing quite a few when I was at "At Home" to get lampshades, so I made a trip to see what I could find.  There is so much to see it is almost mind boggling.
