Fresh InspirationTake Two

Hello Everyone!
A few weeks ago I featured a few of my favorite blogs
and most of you seemed to enjoy it so I decided to make
it a monthly series. Let's pay them a visit and get inspired.
Here they are in order of their first name like last time.
I list a huge blog roll and have many buttons displayed.
At the top of my blog I also feature a *Blog of the Week*.
Just so you all know I do this for *you*. It's nice to share.
If you don't have a blog roll listed on your blog you should add it.
It's always fun to browse other blog rolls as well.

Urns & Decorative Boxes

Hello Everyone!
Do you ever look around your home and realize
you buy the same type of decor over and over?
How does that happen? I guess we all buy what we like.
Join me for a tour of urns and decorative boxes.
I bought this matching set of urns last week at Kirklands.
They matched the colors in our master bedroom.
A decorative ivory box is sitting next to them.

They are from Kirklands and Cato.
A jewel box style with a tassel is in the formal living room.

A mini green box sits on the bombe chest in the family room.
I recently bought this one at Ross for the new coffee table.

This large urn style box came from Ashley Furniture.
I have it displayed on the dinette in the kitchen.

Chris Madden and are called the Corvella collection.
Join me for a tour!

The coffee mugs have nice details.
This has been a great set to own.
The plaid napkins are from BB & Beyond.
The white scroll napkin rings are from Pier 1.
I'm ready for Sunday brunch. Yummy.
I could eat breakfast foods for every meal of the day.
The S/P shackers are adorable too.
I just love the versatile sage green color.
A view of the dinette area.
The placemats and woven chargers are from Ross.
Cafe style drapes and curtains give a welcoming feeling.

My Photo
Welcome! Thank you for visiting my blog. I am a USMC wife married to a wonderful man for fifteen years. He's a CH-53E pilot and has done three fleet tours overseas. I am very proud of him and his hard work. For many years I worked in retail jewelry sales and finally decided it was time to stop and enjoy my decorating passion. We share our home with our cat Chestnut, Lloyd the cockatiel and a betta fish. I appreciate all of your comments and try to respond to as many as I can. Join me! I would be happy for you to follow along.
