Some Pre-Summer Randomness...

A few things showed up in my mail...or in my cart at Sam's Club this past week..
This gorgeous pillow cover from Dear Lillie...
(photo from the web-store here)
And here it is in our family room...

This is one of the 2 wing chairs we had reupholstered before Christmas. I bought them at a house sale 10? years ago and they and a matching ottoman were $75.
Here is a "before" picture...they were pretty tired

 I love them now...very neutral.
I also put the summer slipcover (a Pottery Barn steal on eBay a bunch of years ago) on the sofa, hung the summer quilt (this is not a handmade quilt but a manufactured Country Living throw. I just couldn't resist the colors!) and put out the garden pillows. The sweet little Home Sweet Home pillow was from my friend Marie, of Spun By Me.


I went to Sam's Club to buy a roasted chicken and these magazines jumped into my cart. When you
 are addicted to  enjoy magazines as much as I do, it's nice to get them at a big discount.
Are you enjoying all of the wonderful fruit that is showing up at the farm stores?
Our local farm, Soergels, had their wonderful strawberries when we stopped the other day..

OK-I guess that's enough yumminess for one week.

It looks like I can come right over and enjoy some new magazines and have some strawberries on the sofa or chair with a cozy pillow or 2! Summer Fun!

Oh and Ah! Those chairs look fantastic. I would have never guessed they were the tiered blue before. Love the pillows and no you can never have enough. Sam's club does have great magazines....smiles...Renee

Fiona and I spotted that frozen treats magazine at our grocery store...that watermelon pop looked yummy. Does it have many dairy-free recipes in it? Maybe I should grab one, too, while I do the shopping this weekend.
The house looks dreamy and so comfortable, as always.

Lots of yumminess going on. Love the quilt and I would have never guessed those chairs were reupholstered. Good to hear you are having a great summer.
