Hydrangeas and Prairie Style Magazine Giveaway

Hi friends!

How is everyone? Ready for school to be out? Ready for summer?

Me too!! Our kids have 2 more days! Oh boy, has this month been BUSY!


I just had to share these photos I took last month…of gorgeous white & lime green hydrangeas.  But I have to admit, I didn’t grow these. They are from a friends’ yard.

She said I could come get all I wanted :)


This zinc bucket is from a shop in Texas. It’s very unique and has old wooden handles.


I really wish the blooms would last longer…hated to see them droop and throw them out.

But I sure did enjoy them while they lasted.  I could photograph flowers all day long :)






And guess what came in the mail!! My copy of the latest Prairie Style Magazine!

Remember, back in January, Fifi and Mark came to photograph our home?

It’s a gorgeous issue! I have seen the magazine on stands everywhere!

If you haven’t gotten a copy yet, hurry and get one soon!

We were so excited to see that our kids and English bulldog made it into the feature :)


Here is a shot of our master bedroom that was one of my favorites.


I’d like to thank Fifi (along with her sweet sister) and Mark for being such a fun group to welcome into our home. It is a sweet memory I’ll cherish forever :)

Oh Becky, this is soooooo exciting and I just overjoyed for you and your family. You must be so so proud. (I know I am of you, haha!)

About hydrangeas: if they start to droop cut on angle again on stem bottom and then drench them in a sink full of cold water - they're perk up and give you more life indoors. Once the second drooping starts just tie them up upside down and hang them in the basement to dry - they dry so nicely for nice end of summer/.fall arrangements. So you kinda get 3x the use of those beautiful blooms.

Your friend neighbor is a dear to share! As you know we all had a nasty winter and I lost a lot of my established plants. I am keeping an eye on my peony - keeping my fingers crossed, or I shall have to go to MY neighbors and get some of theirs...............

Last but not least I am and have been a follower of your wonderful blog - p lease count me in for the giveaway, I sooooooooooooo want a copy - can't find them on the stands here, I think they're being all gobbled up by tasteful readers! Thank you for the opportunity!!!!!! Again, yay, congrats!

Your home is gorgeous as is that wonderful bucket.

I have no luck with hydrangeas in a vase of water - they go limp immediately. I am hoping to dry hydrangeas this year, but my plants have not bloomed yet.

I am already a follower so now I have to go over the facebook to do some "liking".

I don't know how I missed this post. I'm glad I went looking for you! I know you are proud. I absolutely love your style, but my favorite photo among all the wonderful design is the one of that precious little boy and his dog. He's a darling. This has to be your favorite too! I'll look for this magazine in the stores, but maybe I'll win it anyway.

A bientôt!

So sorry to have missed your giveaway. Bummer! But, I did want to comment that I LOVE the idea of the tub at the foot of your bed. So handy for storing the decorative pillows every night. I wind up piling my pillows on my chaise lounge every night (which works), but then I can't use the chaise lounge if I can't sleep and feel like getting up in the middle of the night to read.
