~come dream with me~

Hello friends!!


Thanks so much for your sweet comments
last week!

Kenzie had so much fun doing her guest post
for me, after a
  whole buncha prodding, nagging, pestering
little nudge from me....;)


after reading all of your
super sweet comments & encouragement
{but of course, you guys are simply the b.e.s.t.}
she was on cloud 9!

I really think she has a gift for design....I could
totally see her doing magazine layouts or something like that...she's so good at creating "moods" huh??


here's just one, in case you missed it!
so pretty!

anyway,
I am feeling much better now!
it was just crazy around here for a full 3 weeks...
don't worry ~ I'll tell ya allllllllll about it as you
browse these amazing pictures from my new
favorite designer Kelly Harmon



we'll have to have 2 conversations at once, cuz
of course I need to comment on the pictures...
~sigh~
ok....this is my favorite kitchen, hands down...
perfect french country yumminess....
perfect patinas, woods, marble, travertine
and wood beams....oh yeah!

and since I didn't comment on the very first
picture & I simply MUST
you will just have to look at it again.....
painful, I know....;)


hello faded aqua beams...are you kidding me?
 .....chippy, amazing door frames & columns.....
hello fabulous wood floors all rustic & such...
and HELLO amazing bedding & canopy....
holy smokes....simply amazing...
are you loving her yet?  Kelly Harmon,
that is....??? :)


another stunning room....
darling darling...
just look at those shutters next to the window!
and the simple lace curtain!
so perfect with the french beds & toile
bedding.....

oops....I know we were supposed to be having
2 simultaneous conversations.....
{cuz you must be dying to know all about
the ailments we had....hehehe}

ok if I must....

please skip if bored out of your
mind.....or creeped out by such nastiness....

Here goes:

 Mr. T & T was sick for 2 full weeks!!
just happened to be the same 2 weeks he had off in between
changing jobs....~humongous sigh~

we had such plans to get so much done....the short list....power wash house, driveway, garden clean up, office rearranging (cuz he'll be working from home now..)
not!
nothing got done.....except laying around, sleeping,
sneezing, blowing, sighing, coughing, and such.....
during that time
Madi (my almost 16 year old ~gulp~)
got a nasty cold and then sinus infection
{she literally went through 5 boxes of tissue in 1 1/2 days!} 
then
and still during that time
Madi got vertigo....a leftover of the sinus infection...
woke up in the middle of the night with the room
spinning.....(yikes, I know!)
that lasted only about a week and 1/2.
then
Allie (almost 12 year old)
started throwing up
{night before first day of spring break...}
and threw up 18 times in 6 hours...
all in the middle of the night of course...
so you know how much sleep I got....;)
then
next day, Kenzie got it.....threw up 8 times....
then
next day, Mr. T & T got it....threw up 3 times....
{poor guy after being sick for 2 weeks!!}
then
next day, I got it...threw up 2 times, but lest I feel
ripped off....managed to end up with purple
spots under both eyes from the apparent force
necessary to remove contents from my stomach...
broken capillaries...uh huh....lovely huh?!
then
Madi got it.....very mildly....just a major tummy ache...
there you have it....fun times huh??!!
sheeeeeeeesh!

enough of that wouldn't you say!!??

so, let's get back to some more beautiful photos....


really loving the simplicity of this bathroom~


simple but still has all the right components....
travertine, chrome,
white fluffly towels, chandelier
and chippy shutters...


another stunning little spot.....
heaven....

and a few outside shots...
what an a.m.a.z.i.n.g.
property......




are you dreaming with me yet??




I think I will change my mind on the farm....
k ~ don't need a farm...
need a horse property....
and a white horse....


you with me?



have a wonderful day guys!!


xoxoxoxoxoxo
hugs & kisses!

Glad to hear you are feeling better and you should be very proud of your daughter, Kenzie...I thought she did a great job. xo Diana

Hi Shellagh first of all a get well to your madi, and kenzie takes after you with her eloquent, mature guest post stepping in for you while you were taken ill, how did she like doing a post for you and all the wonderful comments she received? :)

Well girl you never let us down on what you dream about over here and what inspires your soul. You wow us leaving with wanting to return to our places/Homes to then want to design and push things around the rooms trying to create new beauty for us as well.

Thank you Shellagh for all you inspire.
Have a beautiful week-and weekend!

Blondie's Journal said...

Oh wow! Does she have a book out?! She should! You and I must have similar tastes, I always fall in love with the pictures you post!

I'm so sorry you were all sick at once like that...or maybe so close, if it were all at once it would have been over sooner! My kids would all come down with something days apart and with four of them, it lasted 3 weeks. They did that with the chicken pox and I was stuck at home for six straight weeks with them. The day that they learned how to make it to the bathroom in time was a big one for me!

Take care and I will keep my fingers crossed you guys get to that TO DO List soon!

XO,
Jane

What a time you all had! It sounds like food poisoning! And as the mom, I'm sure you were so busy taking care of everyone else, you didn't have someone take care of you! I hope you are all on the mend now.
Love your inspiration photos, they are perfectly imperfect. Swoon.....
