It's Still summertime!

Hello! Today I got up and thought I'm in the mood for a change!  You ever feel like that?  I had to do my weekly cleaning anyway.  This week was time for the Family room anyway.  Read more about the flylady method if you're interested in cleaning tips.  Generally, I give everything a more thorough cleaning during this time.  So I figured while I was at it I might change things around.  While I do love my Americana I put it away and got out my sunflowers and crows.  I love that I have little totes in my basement that I can get and add to my rooms when I need a little change.  Generally, I leave up my 4th of July things up around a month to six weeks.  Then around the end of July or first part of August I put up my sunflowers and crows.  I keep crows and stars up year round. 

Here's how my mantle looks:

My round white tablecloth came out from the closet again.  I added my white pitcher some sunflower garland and flowers.  Then I added my big crow I got at a craft show years ago and my little white lantern.  The sign I got from Lisa last year Prims From Above.  She has her own selling blog too.

Here's how I changed my coffee table

I added my crow runner, little cart with crow and basket of flowers.  The sunflowers are actually a candle ring that I shoved in there to fill it up!

I'll be back to show you more things tomorrow!


P.S.  How do you like my new template and background? I've been playing around with things a bit.


  1. I LOVE, LOVE Sunflowers! Your decor looks like a nice, slow transfer from Americana.. more summer.. into a late summer.. rounding the bend to fall. Look great. I like the blog design. I'm addicted to changing mine.

  2. The sunflowers look awesome. I just love them and everything looks great :) Have a great day!

  3. Sunflowers always make me smile! Looks great and I can see it moving into fall with a few tweeks.

  4. I love sunflowers. They just scream happy to me. Your fireplace mantel is so fresh and welcomming.

  5. Carey I really like your new blog layout. You've done a great job on your mantle I love the crows and sunflowers. I look forward to seeing the rest in tomorrows post. I finally got my nerve to start a blog if you have a chance come by and visit.


  6. I love the new look of your blog. I am a follower, and I also LOVE the sunflowers!!! I also LOVE the sign that says Olde crow seeds. I can't wait to read more on your blog, I hope you can stop by mine!
    Blessings and have a great day!
