Favorite Bits of Bliss from the Summer Tour of Homes

Thank you SO very much for all your kind comments regarding the summertime touches at Storybook Cottage featured Wednesday on the Summer Tour of Homes 2015 hosted by the lovely Marty at A Stroll Thru Life.

On Tuesday I had shared a few inspired images from Monday’s happy summer homes and today I am featuring a few more favorites from Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

There are some images that instantly bring a smile to your face. I loved this tabletop vignette Doreen from Hymns and Verses did. Makes me wish I had saved my kids’ saltwater sandals.

A favorite blog of mine is City Farmhouse. Jen truly has a knack for creating glorious vignettes.

Kris from Driven by D├ęcor shared so many fabulous decorating tips it truly is one tour you don’t want to miss.

A longtime friend, Sherry, from No Minimalist Here has such a wonderful home. I adore her use of color.

You must see Jenna’s navy kitchen at Rain on a Tin Roof’. It is oh so dreamy. But it was this vignette that sent me to Ebay searching for a bull planter. I NEED one. (Alas no luck.)

A vintage bull planter. Summer Home Tour: The details make the space.

I would put it right in front of the little blue bonnet painting I have sitting on my kitchen apron shelf. Yes? I might need some chicken planters too. However, the wee wiener dog and mason jar of hydrangea’s work for now.

Decor To Adore Summer Home Tour 2015 067

Internet rabbit hole. Now, where was I? Oh yes, the tour.

There were some bare feet to be found on the Charming in Charlotte blog so of course I was captivated. The recently designed guest room is really lovely and Mallory’s patio is pretty perfect too.

It was SO hard for me to pick a favorite photo to share from the Remodelando la Casa blog. Cristina has done a fabulous job of showcasing summer.

Rounding out this tour recap is Jennifer from Dimples and Tangles. I adore her use of color, palm fronds and that green crab…well, I need that too.

Hi, Laura! I'm always so happy when the seasons change because it's time for blog tours :). So enjoyed seeing your lovely home and the 29 others, too. No wonder I'm so behind on everything! I hope you have a great weekend.
