Black and White Cuteness

The warmer weather is making me think of 
and that always makes me want to change a few things around
inside The Summer House.

Today I hung a new little rack with hooks and numbers...

Added that cute MAGNOLIA paint stick...

...added some of my dried roses

and added some
English Ivy to the little glass tube inside my
ROSEMARY burlap holder...

...hung my BLESSED sign

I am lovin' all of it...

the fun thing about a wall hanging such as this is that you are at liberty to change out the things hanging on the porcelain knobbed
little wall board.

Oh, and see that
little white bowl and spoon on the table....

 "Just in queso"
gotta just love it....

My sweet girl, Stacy Leigh, gave this charming set to me
and I think it's just darling.

As I usually leave you with
something good to eat...

I've always LOVED a Hot Roast Beef Sandwich....

and green beans with French Fried Onions sprinkled on top...
And....I have the BESTEST slow cooker roast recipe that I will share soon...
sooo tender and full of flavor...and the gravy...
OH Honey....the gravy.


  1. BJ, Love the new things in your décor. That is a sweet bowl and spoon. Girl, that hot roast beef sandwiches , yum...makes me think of daddy. He loved those. Their was a restaurant in the town to our east. They make hot roast beef sandwich specials every Friday night. My Dad would take my husband, mommy and me with him some times. I can't say I have had that food since. Now I am hungry. LOL. Blessings, love,xoxo, Susie

  2. All of this and lunch, too! I love your sweet little bowl and spoon. Cuteness, for sure.
