Peachy Beachy!

HELLO! How are you? It's Sunday night around ten o'clock and I just woke up from a nap! What a nap! What an odd time to take a nap, huh? I got up super early for church this morning after a late night last night so I was dying earlier, could hardly keep my eyes open. I feel refreshed and energized now though. Yeehaw!

How's your summer going? Mine is going really well. I'm trying to soak in all the time and enjoy it to the fullest! This summer has been really relaxing so far. Since things have slowed down I'm trying to pick up on all my hobbies. I'm so excited - I read two books in the past couple weeks, worked on three puzzles, just finishing a 1,000 piece puzzle today. My tomato plants this year have taken off! I'm back to writing blog posts and working on house updates! Just enjoying LIFE and not feeling like I have to try for once!  

A couple of weeks ago we took a week long vacation to a beach in Florida. We're trying out lots of beaches we've never been to before. I say I would love to live at the beach and I think it would be wonderful but I sure do love coming back home and seeing all the lush green trees which encompass HOME for us!

Even though we are back home we can all enjoy bits and pieces of the beach! Here's a new addition to the living room. It's a canvas print of the beach in a driftwood type of wooden frame.

I added the large picture a month or so ago. We're slowly changing things to create a subtle beachy feel. My husband picked out this picture on a family outing and at first I wasn't so sure but I went with it and honestly it looks really nice. I am a matchy matchy kind of girl when it comes to furniture and picture frames but I love the relaxed way a beach cottage or house flows with mismatched furniture and wall hangings. Normally I would have black, white, cherrywood or dark walnut frames  hanging on the walls. I have to force myself out of the box so to speak!  

Here are some views of the new picture over the love seat. I used to have a modern painting of a big red flower. I like the colors in this with everything else in the house.

See my whale and turtle pillows too! It's fun and really simple. Those are burlap pillow covers I ordered online. I am super conscious about spending money and I look for great deals on everything so they were pretty inexpensive! Anyway this photograph is a little dark but I love the way the room looks with the new addition!

Hope you are doing well and hope you are able to get to the beach too this summer! Happy Day!

Keep It Simple YAY
KISY for short :-)
