Hello all, I hope today finds you well.

How am I? Not sure. Been a crazy kind of week. A few weeks ago my stepfather, Richard, was in the hospital and we were all relieved that it was really nothing serious. Turns out, that was not the case and his cancer is back and much more aggressive this time. I struggle with what is appropriate to share here. I guess I am putting it out there to ask you to keep him in his prayers – to pray for a speedy recovery and strength to get through the treatments that are ahead.

On a lighter note, I was on Apartment Therapy yesterday and found this link:



It has been there for over a year and I never saw it. It warms my heart so much to see the gift that my hubby so lovingly made for me be recognized. I think I saw a little smile on his face too.

So, now to the sharing…

Chaotically Creative shared this beautiful and fun patterned bedroom


Next, The Delectable Home shared her spring mantel. I am not sure if I trust this weather or not, but I’ll get on board with Spring! I love the branch she added to bird art.


And finally, I am totally inspired by A Very Sturdy Design’s wood tiered serving plates and pedestal dishes. I think I need to try this project.


I wish everyone a really great weekend filled with family, friends and fun.

Thanks for reading!
