I don’t know about you but all of this inspiration makes me want to make over or rearrange something in my house too. Although, truth be told..my hubby says I do to much of that already :-) It has been a while since I did any kind of makeover though. I have a couple of projects just hanging around. Maybe..maybe this is the nudge I need.

Have you rearranged, your home or made over anything recently?

  1. Congrats to Diane and must say I love all the decorating pieces above especially the pink and white dresser, which really is just stunning. Thanks for sharing!! :)

  2. Happy for you Diane. I especially like the dressers.

  3. Great features, Katie. I find it hard to overhaul anything during the summer as I spend most of my free time in the garden. And that is a job that never ends, as you know.

  4. Congratulations to Diane

  5. OH MY! I am SO thrilled sweet friend! This really makes my day and gives me something fun to look forward to! I’ve emailed you! Thank you SO very much! I enjoy your blog and especially this fun party every week! Sweet Southern hugs, Diane

  6. Great features! I love your Thursday Hop! =)
    Congratulations to your winner!

  7. Great features! I love the first living room. So peaceful and welcoming.

  8. Thank you so much for featuring my post on decorating with books! Have a great week…hugs, Penny

  9. I haven’t rearranged anything in ages, except to clear some stuff to make room for my son… and that got piled up in another room and hasn’t been put back, or taken care of. One of these days, when I find some energy, I NEED to do something with it. What a mess. Rearranging used to be my favorite thing to do.

    These are wonderful! I too am always redoing my home, my garage now looks like a home décor store lol. But it is fun to change things out each season!
    Have an awesome day!

  12. Love both of the dressers. I would love to totally tear apart our place. My husband has way too many manly things here. We need a redo at some point. :)

  13. Thank you so, so much for the feature this week! I was away at the World Market Center in Vegas so I missed this week’s party! :( Can’t wait to join you again next time!!! HUGS ~ Judy
