Busy, Busy, Busy… I’m trying to decide on fabric for the front porch – do I buy or do I make new slipcovers? It seems like I sometimes have too many ideas whirling through my head and I need a break from it all. When I get to that point my go-to favorite snack is Pepperidge Farm® Milano® Mint Chocolate Cookies (I think you’ve heard me say more than once I’m a mint chocolate lover). I could make mint chocolate a meal or even a food group. I love all the roles I fill every day – a mother, daughter, friend, blogger, photographer and wife, but often don’t feel like I’m giving them as much attention as needed. Sometimes I just need a me moment, time to focus on myself and pause to enjoy life – and I know my porch will be waiting for me when I get back to it.
As I enjoy a cookie I’m looking over fabric scraps trying to decide on what to do. I’ve been looking at this turquoise and coral floral that I’ve had in my fabric stash as something that may work and give the porch a summertime feel. It always seems hard for me to do, log homes are hard to decorate if you’re not looking for the lodge feel. As you know turquoise and coral color combination is big right now, you can find it everywhere, so finding coordinating fabrics for pillows and such should be easy to do. My other idea is to use simple drop cloths as slips and give the space pops up colors with throw pillows, and rugs. I recently purchased a grill too so I’ll have to make that work in the whole decor scheme as well (I’ll be back with more on that later, I have a few ideas brewing). I believe the later idea sounds like the easiest and it may be what I go with. So while pondering over my decision I think I’ll get back to enjoying my favorite cookies, catch up on a few blogs, and enjoy my me time.
