If you are like me monetary and time restrictions force you to decorate your home in layers! Needless to say our home is a work in progress! I originally shared our master bedroom with you a few months ago, but I have added a layer!
Do you see notice the three new additions? And no, those adorable black girls do not count! Let me help... Do you see the tweet little green bird on the bedside table to the left? It brings in some of the green accent color I am going for, and I got it for $10 at Smitten! Do you see something new on the bedside table to the right? It's says love (kinda like a master bedroom), and I actually stole it from the living room but I think I got it from Kirklands a couple of years ago!
Now, for my most favorite addition... a personalized accent pillow in apple green velvet from Ballard Designs!!! I actually found the pillow on a decorating blog, and since I needed a solid to complete my "stripe, pattern, solid and something black" formula I could not pass it up! Plus, it was green - my accent color! AND it was only $22!!!
And, although I have never shared our living room here our recent updates require some recognition. Finally, I talked Wayne into letting me move our TV to the center (I am a libra; I love balance). The TV was over to the right at first, and it simply did not work! Our super fantastic friend (and electrician), Matt, did the handy work and made all of my cords disappear. To help Wayne cave I volunteered to bring in his duck prints! I still have lots of updates planned but, like I said, decorating comes in layers.
And last but certainly not least, the BIG WALL! Wayne bought this beautiful huge painting (60 X 60) for me for Valentines Day! After all, nothing says I love you like a beautiful field and traditonal red barn!!! I have been searching for the perfect piece to anchor this area, but I have not found anything I love for what I want to pay!
What do you think of my latest layers?

So, I have decided to start reading again - see previous post for the motivational moment! Thankfully, I could not have picked up a more appropriate book to renew my interest!
For anyone girl has a close knit group of girlfriends, The Wednesday Sisters is a great read! You may not watch the Miss America Pageant together or write novels together like the Wednesday Sisters, but you will fall in love with their quirky personalities. You will identify with novels mentioned! And, if you like history, you will laugh through all of the historical references! And yes, you will cry, laugh and call a girlfriend just to say hi!
So, I could not possibly keep all of this fun to myself (not to mention where would I store all of these books I plan to read)? I have decided to pass on each book that I read to a friend who would enjoy it! The Wednesday Sisters will be going straight to my good friend, Shelley. Before I even finished a chapter I realized Shelley would be my Wednesday sister should I have the freedom to choose a sister for myself!!! Love you Shally! :)
Now, go pick up The Wednesday Sisters! Target has the best price!!!

Wayne and I had a great (and very productive) redneck weekend! Wayne insisted that it was just a normal weekend, but for me there is nothing normal about sunbathing with a good book while your husband bushhogs!!!
And yes, that is exactly what we did - and yes, we planned it that way!
We had a great day together - even though we did run out of fuel in the truck on the way back to the cabin and we had to call in backups!
Is anyone else as excited about dove season as I am?

We ended the evening on Sunset Strip with booray and beignets! And I am already looking forward to next year!
