Some Updates....and I Know it Has Been a While!

Oh my it has been a while!!! I have missed you all! We have been extremely busy here. Summer was a bluster of travel and a whirl wind of activity. Then it was time for school and then the activity of driving back and forth. We have had company and events and it feels as if we just can't stop! But today I just set the time aside to blog a little. Now all of my pics wouldn't load. So we will make due with these until next time. I wanted to show you a few things I did at the little vacation house... This is in the bathroom.

My friend Heather got me this for my birthday back in June.

The curtains are hung. I just love the pink touches.

This is the painting I bought for my antique booth. It never did sell and I loved it. So it is now in the bathroom.

I picked up this little picture at an antique mall for $3.00. I thought it was cute.

In the living room I added a few touches.  It still has some work but it is coming along.

We have had such good times here already. We love visiting and honestly the simplicity just adds to the relaxation factor. Sooo what have all of you been up to? I think I will do some blog hopping and find out. Something I haven't done in ages. So good to be back!!

  1. Amy,
    Looks like your vacation home is coming right along, I think the kitty picture is very cute! Thanks for joining on google connect!
    Love ya,
    Aunt Teresa

  2. It looks so pretty. I love the white slip covers on your furniture and the contrasting pillows. REALLY love the floral one in the center! Enjoy your weekend! Hugs!

  3. That's not a little vacation house it is a BIG vacation house. You didn't way where it is? I love your pics, and that Kleenex box is adorable! I'm thinking if I had a vacation house I would not get to involved in decorating, I would be a lot more interested in the good times!!!


  4. Amy Jo .. it sounds like you had a wonderful and fun filled summer with lots of memory making ! .. your vacation home is just coming along wonderfully .. I love the simplicity ...!


  5. Welcome back, your holiday home is looking delightful, a perfect place to wind down and relax. Have a good time catching up with everyone.

  6. Howdy friend! Glad you're back in the saddle again.Ive sure missed you! Your vacation home is just too cute!

  7. Hi AmyJo. It's good to hear from you and I can just imagine how much you are enjoying your beautiful get-away cottage. What fun! I love that little kitten picture and the seashell banner. Amy Jo, a question has arisen in my mind about sending my thank you to you when you have a noreply comment after your name, along with a lot of other people that have it to, that I respond to. Do you get any other comments from me other than on your blog (like this one)? If not it makes me very sad that there are alot out there that I'm not getting through to. Sorry this is so long but the question has come up so I am putting it out there. If anyone else happens to read all your comments here I would appreciate hearing from them if they know anything about this question. I think I'll put a post out on it if I don't get an answer...Glad you are back and Happy Friday..Judy


I love reading your comments......They mean so much to me!!!
