HOMEROOM: Master Bedroom Makeover Progress (Part 3)

Master Bedroom Makeover It’s slowly getting there. I’ve made more progress on our Master Bedroom Makeover and what a difference it’s made. Our master bedroom was the most neglected, ugliest room in our house. We just kept putting it off and never replaced the old, original cheap furniture.

THE INSPIRATION BOARD: Spotlight 264 | Cupcakes Wars

Somehow June got away from me. One day I was moaning about the June gloom weather and bam, it got hot and we’re in the last week of June. It’s crazy how fast the days seems to fly by. It would be nice to slow down and enjoy the little things. I’m going to make an effort to do that. Who’s with me?

I hope you can take a moment to enjoy these beautiful projects featured from The Inspiration Board. And in case you haven’t had a chance to stop by lately, here’s what I’ve been sharing.


And now for the projects featured this week.

THE INSPIRATION BOARD: Creative Party 264 and Save the Date

FROM MY ARCHIVES : Wedding Save-the Date Roll

Phew… we had our first summer heatwave and I survived. Every summer I mention this, but we don’t have air conditioning since we live so close to the coast. It rarely gets above the high 70’s but when it does we swelter. It’s the only time I look forward to going to the grocery store so I can soak in the AC. I hope your summer is off to a good start and you’re keeping cool.

I’m so excited to see what you’ve been up to. I worked on a craft project this past weekend and it’s in the craft fail bin. It was so far from what I had pictured it’s laughable. Oh well, back to the drawing board. So I’m definitely looking forward to your inspiration.

THE INSPIRATION BOARD: Spotlight 263 | Bright Summer Fun

It’s definitely summer here in Southern California. We’re having a heat wave and baby it’s hot!! I’m lucky to live by the coast so we should top off today below 90 degrees. I love summer. It’s my favorite season and there were loads of summer home tours linked up – several of them are featured below – plus a bunch of other fun projects. I hope you enjoy the projects featured this week. Don’t forget to stop by tomorrow when we do it all again on The Inspiration Board Creative Party.

First up, here’s what I’ve been sharing lately.

FRIDAY: High Five

Happy Friday friends. It’s time for the Friday High Five. Five things I’m high fiving about this week. How about you? I hope you had plenty to high five about lately.

Enjoy the weekend. If you’re celebrating a special guy this weekend on Father’s Day, I hope you have a wonderful day.

1-AI’ve been obsessed with smoothies lately and stocked up on straws so I can have my daily fix. My latest flavor of the week is Pineapple Coconut. I’ll be posting about this concoction soon.

SHOW & TELL: Sentimental Vintage Keepsakes–Loss and Love

Vintage Keepsakes Stack of Embroidered LinensA little over a year ago my neighbor passed away at a terribly young age leaving her husband and twin toddlers. I watched her fight cancer courageously and beat it only to cruelly have to endure another round. I watched her babies release butterflies at her grave and heard them over the backyard fence struggle to find normal again.

Welcome back friends. I hope you had an amazing weekend. We cleaned out our garage over the weekend. I know, such a glamorous life. My son wants to convert the garage into a man-cave workout room. I’ll keep you posted on the progress of garage makeover. We’re at the oh my goodness we have so much junk stage. So while, I figure out what to do with all of our stuff, enjoy these gorgeous and inspiring projects featured from The Inspiration Board.
