Revisiting Eye Candy...

You know how it is when you update your blog...you peruse the old posts and critique them in an effort to improve something about your writing skills...or photography skills...or nunchuks skills (autocorrect wanted to change this to "upchuck" skills).  Hmmm, I guess that would be appropriate for some of my earlier posts...UGH...what was I thinking!?!! 

While looking through said older posts, I found this from July 2015.  To date, it has been my most popular blog post.  Since I'm traveling to sit with my MIL at the hospital due to her recent fall, I decided to re-share this post.  I'll give you $5.00 if you can tell me what it says!  ;-)

Everyone loves some "eye candy".  And no, I'm not talking about some buffy, beefy 30-year-old guy with his shirt off and his pants half unzipped giving me a peek at his Calvin Klein undies.....sporting a nice tan, a dimpled chin, a cowboy hat....wait, I'm getting totally distracted...sheesh.  Someone remind me to write a letter to somebody in charge to tell them how offensive these photos are on the internet!


Since it has been a crazy week over here (did you notice I never did get back to a "real" post yesterday), I've decided to share a few pieces of eye candy that I received in an email from BHG.  Don't you just love their emails??!  There is always something beautiful and inspiring to see in those emails!

Shut the front door....or any door really.  How incredibly creative to use a door to section off and disguise a closet in a small space!


What a great idea for a beverage bucket at a party -- an old baby carriage frame with a metal tub to hold the drinks!  Of course, I would make the hubster push me around in the yard before we could put the ice and drinks in it!


I can't even begin to tell you how much I love this porch decor.....so colorful, light, airy and just plain cozy...


When I'm out thrifting, flea marketing or antiquing, I always pick up old letters and postcards.  I could sit for hours reading what people have written to each other in days gone by.  This display for old cards and letters is just too stinkin' cute!


And for those of you who are crafty and have craft supplies (not me, I burned them all), how about using vintage suitcases to store those items?


This living room is such a wonderful mix of elegance and vintage, chippy pieces.  Who wouldn't want to sit here all day and relax?


Another beautiful, peaceful porch area...


I don't know about you, but all of this "eye candy" has made me want to start redecorating a few things.  The hubster is cringing because I mistakenly said this out loud! :-)  But I'm definitely pinning it all so that I can take another peek!

    1. The living room is awesome, and I’m with you on that! I would need a small fire going in that fireplace.

      Thank you so much! She is doing better and was released to go home for outpatient rehab. Definitely a long recovery for her though! Love and hugs!
