Our Southern Home

Our Southern Home


Adorable Home

I’m posting another Friday Faves without much commentary.  Yes, my life is still a little crazy.  You may remember our 1 pound 14 ounce grandson, Cooper, who was born a little over a year ago.  He is doing great, but he has had numerous one year appointments with Specialists in Little Rock, three hours from our home, including a minor surgery.  When his parents take him to Little Rock, we keep his older sisters.  For me, that is a hand full.

In addition, my sweetheart is running for public office for the first time, and I am constantly involved in his campaign, in addition to working my regular, five day a week job.

Right now, out of necessity, my blog is the last “to-do” on my list, so forgive me while I take care of real life.  Cooper’s appointments are almost over for awhile, and I’ll be glad to be able to move my blog up on my list.

Love the bedroom with the red toile. I have red toile in my bedroom so I am always interested in how other people decorate with toile. I think I need to make another red toile quilt. Great picks.
So glad that the little guy is doing so well - he is so special.
Have a great weekend Laurie.

HI Laurie, gorgeous décor and displays. Love the white platters on the back wall. Love the red toile room too.
So thrilled that Cooper is doing well. Prayers continue for him. You are so busy with lots going on at the moment so take care and rest when you can.
