i spotted it here..a new blog to me that i LOVE:) her photography captured me from the start. i knew it was a red letter words--it was a dee:) and the word beach sealed the deal so i if you want one click here. I loved it so much i went to check it out. keepin it real..since i do not live in a real beach house i wasn't sure that would "fit" in my bedroom but then saw this one and it was PERFECT for a coastal bedroom not on a coast...SAil ( coastal ) and DREAMs...for the bedroom. i choose the denim color. thank you JILL:) OH - the signs are in dee's SUMMER section!
this girl...what can i say? i have never met her but i love her voice..her heart..and her clothes. i follow her instagram here. when i saw this picture i knew i had to have that belt buckle. i have never owned a belt buckle..thought it about time. nikki is designing a shirt to match it..a black baseball shirt with pink writing. i ordered from junk gypsies. now to find a vintage belt and sweet christi from the brown shed has been so sweet and helpful to me....xoxo
i must admit i have a little social media depression from time to time. it flairs up now and then...have you heard of it? now i am to smart to fall for this totally but i do believe there is some truth to it. i even fall prey to being sad seeing all the vacay's and homes and wishing....well you know what i mean...so i do have to keep a tight check on my heart. that is where everything flows from;) grace suggested i take some time off of all social media, maybe i should? here is a quick little tidbit on stepping away for 48 hours if you have a small business or something. interesting for sure!
::PERFECT START TO A DAY RECIPE::
1 tsp. of brown sugar - 1 tsp. of white sugar and 2 heaping tsps. of fake coffee mate and pour in the steaming coffee and stir and then sit down and enjoy some one on one with our abba. oh so good!
