Just some looks...

that I love.

Next summer, the plan is for my mom to move into a senior apartment and for me to move to Atlanta to be nearer my children and grandchildren. I think my mom is going to move to Atlanta, as well, so she will continue to have me nearby as support. I will be renting an apartment and I am looking forward to being in my own place again, after four years, and being able to decorate as I want.

In the meantime, I am collecting looks that I love and saving them on pinterest

Here are a few.

I found a couple on Kelly's Essence of Home blog. If you haven't met Kelly, you must hop on over there. She is the sister to the wonderful Kim at Savvy Southern Style.

I like this look, although I would tone down the pink with more neutral colors.

I do love this dining room.

and this cozy cottage bedroom.

Fun to sit and dream on this cooler September morning.

  13. I am so glad that you're ironing out some details and moving ahead with your plans! Keeping a design board will make the time go by quicker and you'll be all set to decorate once you move! Love the diningroom and bedroom too! Have fun "dreaming". Hugs, Leena

  14. I love the style you are choosing and admire your family's desire to form a geographically closer group. Strangely enough I have the pantry piece. Years ago my husband built it for his paint cans in the shop. I flat out stole it for my kitchen. Behind the curtain (mine is on a tension rod and slides easily) is a pull out microwave shelf. I love the labels on the one in the picture you have shown. Pinterest is addictive. Happy pinning.
