Pretty Picnics for the Labor Day Weekend

It’s been three days of constant vacuuming, wiping down kitchen counters and making sure toilet seat lids are closed.

How much do you love it when your house is on the market?

Time for something pretty.

.Picnic outside? Re-create this look with flowers from Bouquet Boutique, overlarge pillows from Rylo Interiors or Olive Home and table settings from Du Monde. Ribbons from the Fabric Store.

At 9’ o clock last night Mr. Décor was replacing our front door handle and deadbolt because a showing agent “lost” a key to our home.

SO sorry to hear you are still under considerable stress. I'm sure that the end is in sight. Your photos look so relaxing and beautiful! I certainly hope that you enjoy a restful weekend. Sad to hear about the Fashionista's tooth. I can certainly relate as I went in for my cleaning recently only to discover I had an abscess that had to be extracted by oral surgery! Who knew you could have an abscess without having a toothache or any discomfort but I'm not complaining!

Two things I love are a clean house and a good picnic, and I don't get either as much as I would like!

I remember those days of having to make sure everything was just so, every single day, and hoping that the right prospect would come along--soon. We didn't know if it was an insult or a complement, but someone(a neighbor we were told by yet another neighbor) kept stealing the real estate signs on the street and from our front yard. We figured either they liked us a lot or thought they might end up with even worse neighbors! Thanks for sharing all the pretty photos, Laura. I enjoyed every single one of them!
