  1. I am beyond excited for you and to hear all about the wedding plans! It’s such a fun and special experience so yes, do it up! I am a huge fan of paint by number but I’ve actually never done one. I think I have all this time and it would be so therapeutic but sadly, I don’t. One day though! Thank you for letting me join in today. I’ll get the hang of it eventually. Have a wonderful weekend.

  2. Thanks, I love these posts and yes have bought things from it.

  3. Hi Lora- I love the graphic at the top of your post. Thanks for sharing your friend Stacy’s book and thanks for sharing the links for botanical art. Have a fabulous weekend!

  5. Hi Lora –
    I’m so excited to get Stacy’s book. I hope everyone who loves to garden or wants to garden buys it. Speaking of flowers I love your botanicals. I’m also switching up the look of things in my house. These would be perfect in my home. It was fun shopping with you.

      Thanks, Lynn!

  6. I love the cafe curtain idea. My question is if you open the window, will the rod interfere? Our kitchen table and chairs are in a bay area with long windows that almost touch the baseboards. Your cafe curtain idea will give us privacy but still provide plenty of light. We currently have pleated shades which are nice but we feel on display when we are dining when shades are up.

      Cafe curtains sound like the perfect match for your space, Deb. The rod shouldn’t interfere with the operation of the window. You can mount it on the outside of your trim to make sure.
