  14. Hi Kathy,
    Did I ever tell you we have the same white tables. I think I did, anyway I have the coffee table and two side tables. I love them!. I sure do love your colors and your windows are so pretty. I have always wanted windows like that. Gary and I have been house hunting for three weeks now, we think we have found one we really like, tomorrow we will look at one more.
    We have the same style and likes. No wonder I enjoy your blog so much!.
    Take care and enjoy your weekend,

  19. Your pot is wonderful. When I saw your title I immediately thought of the author Patsy Clairmont. She has a book entitled God uses Cracked Pots. She is amazing...just like the crackles on your new pot! Enjoy!

  20. I just found your blog. I am in love with your home and decorating style and I just ordered the book - "A Severe Mercy". I pray your husband will be OK.

  21. I just found a new treasure, your blog. Your room looks so romantic, peaceful. I can tell that you carry yourself with much grace.

    I'll be back.

  22. Oh Kathy!!! your home looks like a photo in a pretty magazine!! and the cracking on that bowl is absolutely scrumptious!!!! love, love it!!!

    ciao bella...

  23. The pink cracked pot is gorgeous , so shabby chic. and it looks great in your beautiful room.

  24. Hi Kathy,
    Love your spring look, it is refreshing and delightful and so lovely. I love white creamers and pitchers as well. Your mantel looks great,
    I put mine on my fireplace too, cause that is where they show up the best. Can't wait to get my walls painted yellow cause then they will show up anywhere. I don't know what it is about white things but I absolutely adore them.
    Looks like you have been having a springer sizing good times.
    I think it is suppose to be in the 70's this week, so think I am gonna work in the yard this week since the house is already clean, and start my springer sizing next week maybe.
    Seeing your refreshingly cool looking home has inspired those latent springer sizing feelings for sure!! lol
    Hope you and Dave are doing well hon,
    Blessings, Nellie

  25. Hi Kathy! Oh, I love your pink vase all cracked and olden looking! It's so large - I love it! I love see your lovely home!
    Be a sweetie,
    shelia :)

  26. Your home is so refreshing and pleasing to the eyes that need "refreshing" in this time of year! I really like the way you showcased the fireplace with your collectables. Lovely!
    Blessed spring thoughts,

  27. How beautiful it looks in your amazing room. You should never pass up anything you fall in love with. One lady I know has the mantra..."See it, Want it, Buy it!" What a concept.

  28. How luscious! Love the cracked, white bowl!

  29. Kathy, that is just the sweetest room. How on earth do people do did YOU do that! ADORABLE! I keep looking and seeing something else..and I love detail like that! CUTE!

  30. Hi Kathy !
    I am loving your ol bowl ! I would have never thought to put magazines in it - great job ! Your pink bowl would match my wash/basin set !


Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with me...I am always encouraged by your kind expressions and thoughtful comments....Know that you are loved....xoxo Kathy.
