Happy Mother's Day to all of the mom's out there but especially to my Mom and my Mother-in-Law. I have been really under the weather, but thankfully I am starting to finally feel better.  We were pretty lazy this morning. Then I remembered that we had not put our new outdoor rug/mat in the screen porch so I got to work.

#1 Cassie's Master Bedroom ORC

Have you seen Cassie's bedroom from the One Room Challenge on Hi Sugarplum!  You should check it out!  The super dark walls and spotted drapes are dreamy.


#2 Outdoor Mat from World Market

A full reveal of the porch updates coming soon, but here is a sneak peek. This rug is a great deal!  I love the idea that we can just hose it off when it gets dirty and should not stain.  Plus it is surprisingly soft underfoot.

#3 Calendars as Wall Art

I ordered the American Cities 2014 Calendar from Anderson for the Boy's TV room.  I framed and matted them over the weekend, but they still need to be hung.  Below are some awesome examples of other calendars framed as art.

My favorite porch perk up is palm trees. They brighten up a space and plants have been proven to make you happy.  At least that's what I read online :)  If nothing else, they will remind you of the beach and life is always better at the beach.  My second fave is pillows.
