Cedar Side Laundry Room

Yay I can finally upload pictures!! I have tried every day and finally today I could do it!!!
I thought I would show you my laundry room that I redid and never got around to showing you. I was playing around with picmonkey a little bit too. So excuse some of the different borders... that app is so fun.

So back to the laundry room. I love how it turned out with the white bead board on the walls all the way to the ceiling.

I got this vintage tissue holder and I decided to use it in my laundry room as a dryer sheet keeper. It is very handy and cute too (wink).

My bookshelf filled with all of my supplies for soap making. As well as all of the little extra stain treatments and such. What do you think of the 1950's duck lamp? It is a favorite of mine.

On top of the freezer I have this old tole tray, a sweet little bucket and more supplies.

I love this Christy Repasy Painting. So cute for the laundry room.

My hat display I bought from Carol at the Polka Dot Closet with a favorite hat.

It is one of the rooms that we spend so much time in every day, I think it should be pretty and make you feel as happy as possible. Of course that means different things to different people. These things make me smile.
A very sweet vintage baby dress.

I hope you enjoyed the little tour of a room I spend a LOT of time in....

I am so glad to be back in the loop my dear blogging friends.

Until Next Time,

I Can't Upload Pictures....

cutesy 1950's housewife
I have been trying to prepare a post and for some reason blogger will let me get the attachment and then when I push the button to upload it freezes. Wahhh! I hate when things like this happen! As soon as it is fixed I will post.

 I do hope all of you are having a lovely summer.... It seems to be flying right by. Today I am just enjoying being home for a change. I have put 4500 miles on my car since June 18th.... That is a lot of driving! Today I am cleaning and just rearranging things.... washing laundry, and all manner of house hold things. Blessings and love to you all.

A Sweet Cherry Apron

Look what I received in the mail yesterday, the cutest package!

I ordered an apron from Vintage Grey.... The wrapping was so cute I had to take pictures to show you.

Such a clever tag.

With a typed message on a doily...

And then the apron.... Isn't it so sweet? I don't think you can tell in the picture but this is a pale pink fabric. I love the contrast with the red.

And the cherries... I just love everything about them! If you haven't looked at her blog you should she has the most adorable handmade things.

I was out of town again for the last five days and now I am home...but only for two days and then I am gone again for a few days. This summer has been go go go....  I have accomplished a lot but I haven't really got to do the things I had planned with Levi. This weekend is scalloping. I know he will love that. He always does. Time is flying by.... The days seem so fleeting. I am now on Instagram amyjoleen76, if you would like to find me and follow me you can see what I am up to. Until the next time....

Happy 4th of July!!!

Here's to celebrating the wonderful birth of our beloved country! I am so thankful to God for the U.S.A. and for all of our amazing forefathers. May God continue His blessings on this nation and call us all back to a deeper and truer walk with Him.

I hope your day is amazing.... I will be back to blogging Tuesday.

My North Carolina Finds and a Birthday Gift

Look at this set of beautiful vintage pink silver ware!! This was my birthday gift from my sister. I have wanted some of these for a very long time but every time I found them they were way to expensive...well imagine my surprise when I was in North Carolina and my sister put this on instagram with the message it was for me!!! Yay! I was so excited. Especially since everyone else forgot my birthday...including my husband. Yes these things happen. LOL

Don't worry ladies I treated myself to a few treasures.... One being this vintage tole tray that is now in my laundry room.

I have had these plates for a while but have never shown them to you. I got them for $3.00 each. Aren't they pretty?

Now this is my favorite find in North Carolina. I got it at a shop called High Cotton Consignment in Fayetteville. It is so pretty to me...I have already worn it a few times. I got a few other things but nothing note worthy. We had so much fun going around and finding is always my favorite thing to do.... I have been up to other things too.... I will show these in my next post.

I'm Back....

We are back from North Carolina and have been busier than ever... I will tell you all about it later.

It was nice to visit Savanah and Kevin and see the area where they are living. They have a really nice house in a gated community.

We went to all of the area sites and also fit in some antiqueing along the way. Yay me!

This lake was very pretty.

Our family together again for a brief weekend. Frank only stayed two days and flew back home.

A little put-put.

Let's just say this is me being dramatic... I got a whole in one. Which was a total fluke... I am not good at this game. Not to mention it was 98 degrees outside so we were all very hot.

Bentley was so happy to see us.... He went home with Savanah a month prior and he was definitely missing us. We were so glad to see him too. He is so cute and sweet. I'll show you my treasures and some other things I have been up to soon.

And We're Off...

Hi Girls! I hope your summer is going great and you are fitting in everything you had hoped! I just wanted to pop in and let you know I am off on  a little adventure..... I am packing it all in and heading to see Savanah (my daughter)... I am hoping for a grand time.

We will be in the great state of North Carolina... I will be missing, but definitely in action over the next 10 days. We have lots planned and I hope to squeeze it all in and I will fill you in when I return..... until then.
