Friday Fragments

It's Friday and that means it's time for fragments.  I know you all are so excited to hear fragments of my week, so sit back, grab your morning drink and enjoy. ~smile~  And, a special thanks to
 Mrs. 4444 for hosting our Friday Fragments.

Half-Past Kissin' Time
I am a member of our local Garden Club and on Tuesday we had our last meeting of the year.  We meet September thru May.  We met at the home of one of our members who has a lovely yard and gardens and she maintains them herself.  And, might I add, she has a HUGE yard!
Some of the ladies wore their spring hats and looked so cute.  It was such a fun way to end our year and getting inspired by the lovely landscape was the "icing on the cake."
 ********
As I stated in an earlier post, I have been busy moving the last of my Dad's possessions.  What he does not have room for at the assisted living facility had to be gone through and moved elsewhere or gotten rid of.  
 About 20 years ago my Dad made he and Momma a bedroom suite out of walnut.  Yes, that's right, with his hands, he made the bedroom suite and the frame for the mirror that you see in the above pictures.  Well, I am proud to say that it has now found a home in one of my upstairs guest bedrooms.  Isn't it beautiful!  He did not make the cedar chest that you see.  That was made by his Daddy some 80+ years ago.  My Daddy refinished it and he and Mom used it with the bedroom suite.  All of these pieces are definitely treasured heirlooms.
********
Once I finished getting that guest bedroom all spruced up, it made me want to do a little "fluffing" in some other spots.  
Can one ever have too many decorative pillows on a bed?  Well, my Hubby would say "yes" to that, so I try to make sure that I am always the one to undo the bed at bedtime.  I definitely have a rhyme and a reason to the way I take them off and of course, put them back on.  Until two days ago we only had three pillows on our bed.  But, I decided that we needed more so I went pillow shopping and was thrilled with my "finds."  And, while I was at it, I picked up a few more for the other beds in the house. You know, one thing always calls for another.


 I imagine the poor gal that checked me out wondered if I had a problem.  But, she asked no questions and I gave no answers. 
~big smile~ 
********
My next spot to "fluff" was the front porch.  I decided that the only thing lacking on our front porch were some benches.
  Hubby and I went on a search last weekend and found these bronze colored ones and got them.  And, of course, they had to have some colorful pillows too. I think the benches add a real charm to the front porch. You know, it's the little things............
 ********
And, I just simply could NOT resist getting this pillow for the family room couch.
I have a "thing" about birds and this one was calling my name.

Okay, enough on my "fluffing" project. Every once in a while I enjoy adding some new touches to the existing decor.  It makes me happy while I'm doing it and happy afterwards as I enjoy "the fruits of my labor."  It's been a happy week of fluffing! Now, go see what you want to add some fluff to and enjoy your weekend!

    The pillows are all just adorable. I just noticed one on my sofa needs to be repaired or replaced, may have to do some fluff shopping around here too.

  6. Can one have too many decorative pillows? My husband has said by all means YES! He just thinks they're overpriced clutter. Since he is the one to go to bed first and as this attitude, I don't "fluff" our bed with them. Your dad's craftsmanship is remarkable. Such a beautiful and special suite he made. Porch benches are a great touh. I see your chevron print gets front and center attention!

  8. these are all such lovely images and that bedroom set that your dad made is surely a treasured heirloom. It is definitely a beautiful set. I love what you did with the room as well as the other rooms in your home. As for the pillows, my husband would say yes as well. As for me, I try to keep them to a minimum just because I'm the one who has to remove, store & then reset them. Happy Weekend to you...xoxo
