  1. Prattling Pond. Impeccably decorated. Honestly, no words.Thanks for sharing because viewing it was a great way to start the day. While not the breakfast that you highlighted, I might be making her Breakfast Grilled Cheese for breakfast! Sounds so easy and yummy..

  2. Always so enjoyable. Thanks for doing all the work and providing such interesting links! I particularly liked mixing antiques with modern. Some luscious photos!

  3. Jennifer,
    Just like always, you have delivered a whole lot of inspiration this Friday.
    I really appreciate how you share so many varied ideas, new concepts, especially because none of them require huge makeovers costing tons of money.
    You might not recall, but I told you last week that I was making over my upstate NY enclosed front porch with light blue and white blackout curtains and a pink patterned area rug with my old white wicker furniture? I loved it so much, this theme is going small (1500 sq ft) house wide!
    While I would love breezy sheers, I have to be practical. The blackout curtains are huge energy savers all year round. Plus I live on a busy street and want the privacy at times. The colors are so cheerful and happy. I already have blue bedding that matches, hidden away while I went all neutral recently. All the neutral stuff is going to my local charity shops, ASAP, so someone else can love it.
    Thanks again for your great blog.
