A Few New Goodies And Some Progress In The Dining Room

Hello Sweeties near and far away, I wanted to share a few new goodies with you today. 
I worked a tiny bit on our formal dining room Friday night. I am such a slacker.....
it's been month and it's still not all finished and pulled together.


So last week I went to Cost Plus World Market and found these super gorgeous
Distressed Metal Filigree Lucy Lanterns . 
I put them on the window sill in the dining room


They look so pretty at night with the candles burning, and the rope handles on them 
compliment the rope tied around my curtains. 

Something else that's new is this large Demi John bottle that I found at Home Goods 
earlier this summer. I simply put some battery operated string lights in there and VOILA!!

It is currently sitting next to the buffet table in the dining room. 


I had gotten these VIRSERUM picture frames some time back at IKEA. I finally hung 
them up on the empty wall but still need to get some large prints made to fill them.  
The large round baskets in the middle are from Targets "Threshold Collection"
I don't think they carry them anymore though. Bummer I want more!!!  

Ok, so here is a picture of the dining room in the dark, do you notice the shade 
pattern on the giant wall??? Those are coming from a super cute lantern-light 
from directly across the room. 



Here is the guilty lantern sitting up in the window nook in the living room. 
It looks sooo gorgeous at night making all these patterns on the walls. 
The above picture really does not capture it. 



It's a Punched Metal Baroque Cylinder Lamp and is another great find 
from Cost Plus World Market.





Well, that's all I got for today's post. Still not all done but 
"Slow And Steady Wins The Race" right???? 



Our Willie would certainly agree, here he is earlier this summer, I found him in a 
corner on the deck behind some pillows with a little froggy friend....LOL


And not to leave out Bugsy, this is how he is enjoying the summer months....
staying cool in his little hiding spot in the barrel!!!! 


As always, thanks a million for visiting me!!!!!

My Cozy Outdoor Spaces

Hello Loves, how has your weekend been? I am finally caught up with work & all
after having been on vacation. This weekend I played around on our patio
spaces a bit, trying to get a more cozy feel out there!!!!

I purchased this cute white SOLIG NET FROM IKEA 
before our vacation and finally had a chance
to hang it up this week ....love it so cute!!!!

Notice the new IKEA catalog I got in the mail this week ???
The perfect reading material for my little tent!

The large outdoor pillows are from Cost Plus World Market and
so is the knitted floor pouf
I also hung these cute polka dot lanterns on a string of twine

The outdoor rug is new as well. Got it on
ONE KINGS LANE last month for 40% off.....yayyyy


 I love to look out the sliding glass door now 
and see the net flowing in the wind!

 And here is our main patio area. You might remember
this space from my recent Mothers Day Post ?

I found this wooden hanging tray at a bazaar some time back
and finally figured out a good place to hang it. I added these
3 little buckets from the Dollar section at Target and filled
them with little boxwood balls. I actually used some double
sided Velcro strips on the bottom to keep them stuck to the board.

Do you like all the summer goodness????
I want to stay home all week from work now and catch up
on my reading in the back yard, who is joining me????
Toodles
