I hope you've had a great week!

We returned from the beach late Wednesday evening. This was the look from one night that we went out to dinner with our neighbors. We have been beach friends for many years. Our kids have grown up together.

We started painting the very next morning. We missed our paintbrushes so very much! LOL!

advance paint

We were even able to find 2 gallons of Advance trim paint 5 hours from home! It's actually an hour away from the beach house. My husband had to drive to North Myrtle Beach one day for business so we called the day before. We paid for it over the phone and all he had to do was pick it up.


While Ashlyn worked on painting the back staircase trim, I worked to paint the ceiling in our mudroom on Thursday and the foyer yesterday. The tan ceiling was painted in 2004 and worked perfectly with the old moss green walls.


It made such a subtle difference, but the light bouncing off the ceiling is brighter. My topiaries on the porch are still on sale and the lowest price ever!!!!! Please ignore the fact that the rug needs to be vacuumed! After I swept and mopped the floor, I was just too excited with the difference to not snap a quick photo!

salmon and veggies

The kids were both out last night. We should have gone out for a date night, but after being gone 11 days and painting, I just wanted to stay in.

We had this salmon sheet pan meal that is on weekly repeat. I don't follow a recipe and vary it with spices and veggies, but the recipe is on the blog!

What I'm Reading

What Caught My Eye

I am wanting to add some new wallpaper in a couple of bathrooms and LOVE this look!

Fall is right around the corner. I can't wait. I'm starting to look for new slow cooker recipes, and I can't wait to try this one!

I am cold-natured and would love to install this in our master bathroom.

I'll be pulling out the cozy blankets soon. This is a great tutorial on a simple way to display them.

Loving this creative way to DIY the look of a headboard. It made such a gorgeous, dramatic change in this small bedroom. We need this for the lake house Airbnb!

This is such a sweet and easy craft to use cans! Make it yourself or with your kids. You could use it in many ways, but I'd love down the center of a table for a late summer tablescape.

    1. Thanks, Sara! I typically make a solution with Tide and Oxyvlean and put the rug on the brick patio. I use a soft bristle scrub brush on a pole to scrub it with the solution then rinse. For some of my outdoor rugs, I even lightly pressure wash during big cleanings. Just spot-check to make sure it doesn’t mess with any colors. I’ve never had an issue.

  1. Just recently found your page. Creative and classy! Need to know where you purchased the dress you are wearing in your Saturdays on the Porch #15. It is darling!

    1. You are so sweet! Thank you so much! It’s from a favorite online boutique. They have the cutest dresses and tops. My dress is the Farrah. It’s been sold out. They typically keep the style and update the colors and patterns for the season. It’s so comfy! Here is $10 off on your first order.http://i.refs.cc/5j5BRpVJ?smile_ref=eyJzbWlsZV9zb3VyY2UiOiJzbWlsZV91aSIsInNtaWxlX21lZGl1bSI6IiIsInNtaWxlX2NhbXBhaWduIjoicmVmZXJyYWxfcHJvZ3JhbSIsInNtaWxlX2N1c3RvbWVyX2lkIjozMTYwNjE3NjF9

  2. So glad you were able to get more paint. It’s so frustrating when supplies are not available. Thank you for the feature this week! I’m off to order some books for Mama and I to read!

  3. Hi! I am seriously contemplating changing the colors of my 100 plus years home’s interior. It came with dark stained trim everywhere, including the stairs, wainscoting, etc. Think deep mahogany….would you please divulge the colors of your foyer, including the ceiling? I am unfamiliar with Advanced paint from SW but we used them for most of our painting. Because we hire painters, I want to get the colors right. Thank you for your help! Your home is BEAUTIFUL!

    1. Thanks so very much!!!! The wall is a flat finish in Agreeable Gray by Sherwin Williams. The ceiling is flat in Simply White (Ben Moore color) and the trim is Simply White by Ben More in satin finish with Ben Moore Advance. Colors can be mixed with any brand. I prefer Satin on my trim as opposed to Semi-Gloss. Satin still has a sheen, but not as shiny as a semi. I’ve also painted a couple of rooms white using Ben Moore Simply White and Alabaster. I’d get a few samples and try on different walls to see how they look with your lighting. I also highly recommend replacing bulbs with LED Daylight. It really makes your grays and whites look truer to color.

I love hearing from you!
