  1. Everything looks Fabulous... and everyone could use some Retail Therapy every once in a while! *Winks* Yes, its raining like crazy here in the Arizona Desert... and we need it so I'm enjoying the Coolness and Freshness it brings, nice change from our 115 degree Days and 105 degree Nights. Blessings from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian

  2. Hi Kathee,
    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it all!!!!
    That first photo is absolutely dreamy!!!
    Wishing you a beautiful weekend.

  3. Hi Kathee, I love your newly done space. Looks great for summer. We would love it if you would link up to our Hot Fun in the Summertime link party to show off your beautiful summer vignette.
    Still loving my Jeanne d'Arc Living. Just picked up two more at Agoura this week. Stay cool and have a great weekend.

  4. I want that bird cage in the 6th photo!!!!!! Please and Thank you!!!!

  5. what a beautiful post! im drooling just a little bit. i have one of those chicken feeders-want so much to use it as a dish rack, but I just don't have room. Trying to devise a way to turn it into lighting for my kitchen. I know it could be a planter, but I want to keep it as nice as possible until I give up on using it indoors. Thanks for linking to our party!

  6. Hi gal,
    So sorry I didn't have time to check out that chandy before it went in the store. Now I'll never get to see what a great find it was.

  7. Wow! Some great STUFF there! I could spend a few happy hours (and a few dollars) in problem!

  8. Beautiful as always! I hope all is well!! Xo

  9. Wow!!!! This store is just loaded with great stuff. I really want to get down there someday and check it out in person:-)
