Simply Blessed and Rosemary and Mint




I found these sweet DKNY drapes at Home Goods.  I love the little buttons on the pinch pleats.

I also ordered this Simply Blessed sign off of Etsy to hang over my window.


The room is awaiting the sectional to arrive on Saturday.  Yeah!!!
Then I think this room will really pull together nicely.
No sun today for a good picture. :(
With the house facing East I usually get great sun in this room for the better part of the day. 
Not today when I would have loved that for a good picture!

I also wanted to share this sweet smelling candle I got at Pier I the other day.

It is a combo of Rosemary and Mint.  Oh my it smells so fresh and wonderful throughout my whole house.

They have several combo scents but this is by far my favorite.  Their candles are 2 for $20 which is so reasonable.
I love the soft and fresh garden smell this gives to my whole house.

I will be back when the sectional arrives and I can get more decor up on the walls to show you the living room hopefully all pulled together.

Leaving on Saturday to take a girlfriend trip to Michigan. 
We will leave early Saturday morning and take a ride to my favorite shop The Found Cottage.
 
The Found Cottage has opened up a sister shop next door with lots of one of a kind vintage and wonderful treasures. 

I cannot wait to go and see what that is all about.

Hope to find some treasures for the new living room on my trip.

I love a girlfriend trip.  We will have 2 hours in the car to catch up with each other and then some wonderful shopping and great lunch together.

The weather is suppose to be clear and lots of sunshine for our trip.
Hugs,
Kris

  1. Kris,
    Happy heart day. I adore your new "Blessed" sign. Your room is so fresh, crisp and white. I love that shade of white but unfortunately living in the land of red clay and several dogs I am not able to live in shades of bright white. Your room is so beautiful even without the sofa. I love that statuary, and especially the sweet crown that adorns it. The frame around the chandy is the best. Have fun on your chick escape and play day.

  3. How exciting for the weekend with the girls. You will have much to chat about and I'm sure will come back with treasures. Everything is coming together wonderfully. New curtains are pretty. Loving the crown on your cherub. I'm a crown girl not sure where I got it from but love me pretty crowns.

    Have a super trip and looking forward to seeing your sectional.

    Hugs

  8. I will definitely have to go to Pier 1 for a candle. I have hand soap that is Rosemary and mint combo and it is my favorite.
    Have a glorious time on your girl trip. We are planning a similar day to a venue about 1.5 hours away. Good weather and safe travels wished for you and your friend. Can't wait to see your completed room. Oh and happy Valentines day also!

  14. Hi Kris! Your new curtains are lovely - the buttons deal the deal for me. You've waited a long time for your sectional, I know tomorrow can't come soon enough! Have a great time in MI. I'm headed there in the next few months and I can't wait to check out the Found Cottage and all of the other shops. Jane

  16. Love the button trim, Kris. Saturday will be exciting, but so will your girls trip. Have fun. My Panoply sisters are coming to help me purge some more on Saturday. My kind of excitement these days...

  17. Wait--You are going to be gone on the day that your new furniture arrives? Or have I missed a step? If both are on the same day and I had to choose, I would say bring the furniture on Monday! A day out with the girls would have to come first!

  18. Kris, I love those curtains! They look so pretty and the buttons at the top give them that little extra touch! I hope you are feeling better and have a great time on your girlfriend trip...we so need a girls day sometimes...just to refresh our spirit! I bet the candle smells amazing! I will have to check them out at our Pier 1! I cannot wait to see your beautiful sofa!! Love and hugs sweet friend!

  24. The girlfriend trip sounds like so much fun... especially when there is such a good "shop" destination! Your curtains are so pretty and so is the sign. I bet that candle is wonderful! I love the soft scents of candles.. nothing too strong but soft and a little bit floral. Am anxious to see what you find a the Found Cottage, and also anxious to see your new sectional. Have a wonderful and fun trip! xoxo Marilyn

  26. I’d love to be a fly on the wall during that trip ;).

    Such pretty curtains! You know who else has surprisingly pretty curtains and super cheap? Hobby Lobby. You heard it hear first my friend. Now go forth and shop with your besties and tell us all about it when you return, I’ll be waiting ;).

  32. You're not going to be home when your sectional is delivered? I figured you'd be sitting on the curb waiting! Lol! Your girlfriend trip sounds like so much fun! Can't wait to hear about it and see pics of it and your livingroom! Have fun!

  33. Kris, by now you are back home, had a wonderful day shopping and your sectional is there! I love the sound of that candle. I get one that is eucalyptus and cucumber (different brand) but has a soft, great smell too. Hope you are taking the time to not read this and instead, getting the room together. Can't wait!!..Happy Sunday..xxoJudy
