I just picked up this Striped Throw at IKEA that I have been eyeing ever since it came out! So Excited. It really made my weekend along with my new lamp shades. Plus, I love that is feels like a sweater too! :)

It's all in the Details! Truly. I painted my Master Bedroom "Dunn Edwards Swiss Coffee" (The best white. In my opinion. I Love it!) By adding all the Architectural Trim, Now it just pops. Don't you think?
$30 DIY Antler Wreath (Super Easy)
I want to show you more of this room. But I can't! I know it pains me. I want to show it all, but it's not finished yet. My Antique Lamps need shades. ugh. AND I need some art work to list a few. It's a work in progress what can I say. But my moldings are up. WOOO HOOO!
BIG thanks to the Hubby! You Rock!
DIY Antler Wreath
But I did want to show off my DIY Wreath I made for $30. I picked through a box of broken antlers at this antique store and got them all for $20. Then $10 in Spray Paint (took 2 cans of white). But I must say if you do this too. Use a glue gun to glue the pieces together not just wire. I learned that the hard way. :)

What a Beautiful Day here in Utah! Last night we had Watermelon for the first time this year, and it was Delicious! I can't wait for school to get out and Summer to Begin! It really had me thinking about summer time and Lounging around outside while my kids play...
What I love about Summer: (I could go on and on. Seriously. But here are but a few ;))
- Hanging out in the backyard
- Longer days in the sun
- Bowls of Ice cream
- Laying out at the pool
- BBQ's- Steaks and Burgers on the Grill.
- Running through the Sprinkler
- Warmer nights to hang out in
- Acting like a kid again!
Are you enjoying this warm weather as much as me??
Happy Monday! Go enjoy the Outdoors!

A Job well done Mandi over at Vintage revivals.
