Winter Sun warms my Soul

We have had sun mixed with clouds these last few days...
and nice warm temps....

still cold in the evenings and mornings, tho.

 Lots of sunshine coming thru those blinds...

We're really looking forward to summertime here at the SUMMER HOUSE.

Altho I am not a swimmer, I am going to LUV watching our grands have fun fun fun out there....

Sun pouring in on a favorite blog space....

Work going on in the vanity room..

...adding a nice, large window here...
this room is dark and this window is going to open it all up to light and 
I'm gonna love it to the moon and back.

 It will be the same color as we painted the large bedroom....

...a light, light  khaki color that I love so much I want to marry it...
it's NATURAL WICKER by ColorPlace at Walmart.

...did you notice the vintage shutters here...?
Yep, I brought them from the olden house...
love this big opening from bedroom to vanity room, flanked by the shutters.

and, speaking of SUNSHINE.....



  1. Happy Sunshine, and Happy St. Paddy's Day! xo

  2. Good morning BJ. Hope you have a wonderful day.

  3. Love the view:) Like being on constant vacation! Love the shutters and that added window will sure let the light shine in! Enjoy your sunshiny day dear B.J.! HUGS!

  4. Thanks for sharing your pretty new home. Even though you don't swim, you're going to enjoy getting wet, I'll bet!

    I'm jealous that you have twin grands and I don't.

    Have a Happy Blue Monday!

  5. The sunshine keeps me going on cold days! That sparkling pool is beautiful even if you don't get in:>)

  6. bj ... Your home is coming together beautifully. So much space.
    Love that you found a pretty place for your shutters.

  7. Mmmmmmm..... those cinnamon rolls look delicious! And the house looks lovely. And yes - we do need to be praying for that lost plane. How can that happen? It's crazy!

  8. thanks for the sugar fix this morning, bj. :) can always count on you.

  9. Hope your St.Patrick's Day is full of sunshine!

  10. You have wonderful sunshine in your home. Those shutters look great there!

  11. Regardless of the weather, you always bring sunshine in your life and home. I am sure you will enjoy the pool. I am not a water person. I just sit and let my feet hang in the water. Never owned a bathing suit.

  12. I know you will enjoy the pool and watching the grandchildren enjoying it. Have a blessed day. Happy St. Patrick's Day to you. Madeline

  13. Oh lots going on! Perhaps you will become a swimmer, too, with all those grands to teach you!

  14. I forgot everything else I was going to say after I saw the cinnamon rolls, oh my!!!!!!

  15. You've been busy bj! Your new home looks very spacious and I love all your personal touches. I don't swim either but it's fun to cool off a little in the water in hot weather. Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

  16. The sunlight will pour into your vanity room and love the shutters too. May I ask where you purchased the computer table? I love it.

  17. Happy St. Patrick's Day B.J. The rolls look delicious!

  18. You should just jump in the pool with the grands! It's fun just floating around on a raft. Loving our sunshine today, too. The weather has been crazy lately. Happy St. Patrick's Day!

  19. May need to repaint my bathroom soon even though it doesn't really need it - that's just the color I want for the walls there.
    Those cinnamon rolls looked SO good.

  20. All your different angles of sunshine look so good. I think the window and paint will be simply amazing! Isn't there a song that goes... I'm munching on sunshine...oh oh.... Or is it walking? Lol.... Those are the orange icing rolls I forget about until I see em... Then I gotta have em! Hugs!

  21. Didn't realize you had moved. I'm outta the loop. Your pool is beautiful and summer fun will be here soon!

  23. You have the prettiest photos! Love the sun shining over the pool! Your home is always are very gifted!! Yumm..those rolls look very tasty! smile...


  24. How do you LOSE a plane????? This is crazy! We did get to Fl. and are still waiting to hear an estimate on the car and how long it will take. OY!!!

  25. I love the shutters beside the opening! That window is going to be really nice. I love the green table too. Love the light over the pool. It's all coming along so nicely!

  26. The sun always makes me feel better - it's been cloudy and dreary for 3 day now and I don't feel like doing a thing!

    Yes, hang stuff on those shutters - clocks, pictures etc. I think it'll look really cute!
