Sunshine, travel and inspiration- May in Review

It is the first weekend in June- so that means it is time for May in review.
Every month I am literally surprised at how quickly the month has flown by.

May? It just.started. 
I mean, I know it was 4 weeks ago... but doesn't it feel like yesterday we were welcoming May 1st?
May has been a busy month over here- with a lot of travel, renovations and more behind the scenes. A new look on my blog (YES!) and lots of progress on some really fun stuff coming your way starting next month. Here on the blog- there were a lot of favorites this month- here are a few highlights in case you missed them.

A charming afternoon at Patina Farm authors Brooke & Steve Giannetti's home in Ojai. 

A look at New Orleans through my lens

That reader makeover in Tennessee revealed

A fresh look for outdoor entertaining on the patio

How to get the rustic cottage look in a few simple steps

And an early summer styling

Over at Lamps Plus Style Illuminated- I talked about 
adding charm with  water features 

And at HomeGoods- it was all about adding a spa feeling to your bathroom

I am looking forward to sharing a few exciting new looks- 
and a new summer series coming your way starting this month. 
And as always- I want to say a big thank you to all of you for taking the time to come by 
and read my blog and say hello.
 It is appreciated and means so much to me
 I am so grateful to be able to be included in your world and reading list.

Happy June everyone!

  1. May did go by fast. Looks like lots of fun things happening. Loved the photos from New Orleans, and the visit to the Farm. Also really enjoyed the how to on adding blush . Looks like are couple I get to go back and read. Try and get to that in the next couple of weeks, since I will have a couple of weeks off from school. Love all the articles though. Happy Saturday! :}

  2. Aren't hydrangeas the most fabulous flowers? Mine are the prettiest this spring they have been since I planted them. Tempts stayed cooler and rain was adequate In South Georgia so I know that made the difference. Yours are so perfect!

  3. I am rather happy May is over, normally a hot sunny month, this year, here in South West France, it was cool and wet and all the locals were complaining. The garden and vegetables are way behind normal. But June has dawned bright and sunny and I can feel the heat in the sun once again, Happy Summer days!
