Mediterranean Avocado & Tomato Salad

by Meegan on August 27, 2014

It’s Wednesday already!  It’s a fab week so far.  The weather is still HOT here, and that means more pool time for me.  Yay!  I really do love Summer time.  While it’s hot outside I like to eat cool and refreshing meals.  One of them is Mediterranean Avocado & Tomato Salad.

With fresh garden ingredients, this is a great addition to any meal, or as a meal itself.

The first time I ate Mediterranean Avocado & Tomato Salad was while I was helping my mom after her hip replacement.  It became a fast favorite.

Happy Monday everyone!  School starts here today and I am thinking about all the Mommas out there kissing their babies “goodbye” for the school year.  NOW it’s time to have some fun.  Sit back, relax and join me while I share my Teacups and Saucers Collection .

I collect seashells, and recently started collecting Teacups and Saucers, too.  I love the different patterns and styles, don’t you?

Happy Thursday everyone!  How has your week been going?  Mine??  Well, it could be a LITTLE better, but overall, I would say I am very blessed.  I am happy to be here with you today.  I KNOW you will love my idea to Use a Large Shelf or Mantel in Place of a Headboard.  It has been of the BEST projects I have done in a long time.  AND I am sharing it with YOU today.

I have been searching and searching for a “mantel” or large shelf for about 2 years.  I REALLY wanted to use it as a headboard.

Use a Large Shelf or Mantel in Place of a Headboard

I am part of a “garage sale” facebook group in my area.  I browse through everyday looking for something I might be able to refinish, paint, or redesign.  I came upon a woman who was selling 4 large shelves.  I jumped at the chance and bought one as soon as I could.

Secretary Brought Back To Life

Saving pieces of furniture and bringing them back to life is one of my favorite past times.

Fireplace Mantel Makeover

I enjoy decorating with things that I love.

Christmas Dining Room 

Speaking of love and decorating Christmas is my most favorite time of year to decorate! There is nothing like bringing the magic of Christmas to our home. 

Dining Room Chandy

Our home is decorated with steals like our dining room chandy that I purchased from a local gal. She had just moved into her home and hated the light fixtures. She was practically giving this one away!:)

Over the last 5 years of living in our home we have done everything from a bathroom redo to installing hardwood floors ourselves to even a fireplace makeover.

Last year my dream came true when we took our drab dark kitchen and lightened it up.
Kitchen Makeover

Isn’t it amazing what a little paint can do!?

Laundry Room Makeover

Over the years my style has been evolving or I like to say is becoming more fine tuned. 

Master Bedroom Makeover

One of my favorite rooms in our home is our master bedroom which received a makeover back in the spring.

I am currently working on changing up our dining room.
I am busy adding rustic farmhouse charm to it. The reveal will be coming soon!:)

It has been a pleasure visiting with you all today. Please be sure to stop by my place!

On Wednesday evenings at 7 p.m. central I host Treasure Hunt Thursday where you can link up your treasures, home decor, recipes or anything else you like.



You can also follow along with me on Facebook and Pinterest.

Thrifting Thursday

by Meegan on August 14, 2014

Hey there!  Welcome to Thrifting Thursday!  I am excited to show you what I found recently while I was out thrifting.  I just love me a good deal, don’t you?  I haven’t been a thrifter for very long, but I have always loved a good deal when I find one.

I started thrifting about 4 years ago.  While finding my style, and creating a new look for our home, I started shopping at local thrift stores.  Things would catch my eye. And for a couple of bucks I could paint it, change it up and make it my own.  That’s how it all began.

Now onto Thrifting Thursday…

Thrifting Thursday

Oh my goodness!  Can you believe this was only $10…

EASY Mason Jar Thank You Gift Idea

by Meegan on August 13, 2014

Happy Hump Day everyone!  Can you believe we are already half way through the week?  Me, either.  My week has been full, has yours?

It was our anniversary yesterday.  So Hubby and I celebrated by seeing the movie “The One Hundred Step Journey”.  Have you seen it yet? It’s really simple and very sweet.  AND, if you like food, farmers markets and eating-even better. We also went out to dinner and window shopped around an outdoor mall.  It was the perfect way to celebrate.

I have a couple of friends that I NEED to make gifts for.  They have helped me in many ways over the past few years.  Each one of them are excellent cooks, so I thought of an EASY Mason Jar Thank You Gift Idea.
