« LOVELY LAVENDER (and a delightful cupcake topper) | Main | Crazy for Cake Pops »


Your room looks so pretty. I really like the fresh changes that you made.

Hi Lisa,
You dropped by at my about page ! thank you !

I see that we have similar topics. I love interior decor and I also love lavender ! I love your mirror and the patina garden girl. If you don't mind telling, where did you get them ?

BTW, lovely home !


I can honestly say that those decor you have used were just simply perfect. Maybe its because of its color that compliments to any other color.

yes move the love seat let the flowers show! Just love your blog!!!!

What a lovely vignette! The painted birdcage and strong use of white is perfect for summer decor...

See you in BYW2!


That looks beautiful - and I love the hee haw jug! Thank you for stopping by my blog and your kind words. I remember your beautiful blog and banner from blogging for bliss - it definitely stayed with me. Hope you are enjoying the course. Cheers, Tracey.

What a beautiful post! I love the bird cage make over - stunning!
Looking forward to exploring your blog some more :)

I'm so thrilled to meet all the lovely BYWers.

Beautiful Blog and amazing make over. I'm Inspired!!!

I'm looking forward to getting to know you!

Mari, Fellow BYW :)

Wow! I really love the Hee Haw jug with its white branches. That looks amazing. And I think the jug looks in perfect proportion!

See you in BYW!

Beth :-)

I really love your transformation...It's so inspiring for me! I'm just beginning with my blog and I'm trying to learn more through BYW course and talened friends I can meet in class, like you!

it looks so beautiful - what a lovely room, so calm and the colours are subtle and elegant!
Great to meet more students from BYW2!

I really enjoyed the transformation of your window area in your music room. What a beautiful and cozy room. How great that you took what you saw in a PB catalog and gave it your own spin.

Hi! Just got a chance to check out your blog, and I have to say you reeled me in with your last two posts. I used lavender and birdcages in my wedding decor a few years ago, so they are both close to my heart. Love the new vignette on top of your bombe chest. The large cherry blossom arrangement really perks up the space for summer. Well done :)

Hope you're enjoying BYW2!

Hi Lisa,
I love your post on the mini-makeover, and how you share what you are doing with decisions along the way. I also love whatever fabric is in the cushion right at the front of the photo - I can see I will be looking at earlier posts about them! Karen, from BYW2

Hey there Lisa,

Thank you for stopping by Sewing Daisies and saying hello. I just have a sticky beak on your blog and it's gorgeous. Your camera & decorating skills are amazing!

I can't wait to chat more in the forum...


You are very talented decorator! Beautiful collection of items and so nicely designed. I like the color combination white-creme-grey-golden :).
Thank You for sharing,
Eeli (BYW 2.0 fellow)

Wow -- great job Lisa! I love that you made over the birdcage too. Very Pretty!

Hi Lisa,
What a beautiful home you have, I love the clever projects especially the bird cage (I have lots of them in my home too!) Your blog is very inspiring.


PS: Left a comment yesterday but for some reason it didn't work.

I have recently redecorated my conservatory to a calming green colour, visit http://www.karenbarclay.com/everything-else/the-conservatory-is-back-to-green/ to see what i have done. The downstairs cloakroom has also had a makeover, http://www.karenbarclay.com/everything-else/the-pictures-have-a-home/
I love your new feature in your music room Lisa very summery.

Beautiful and so calming. Hugs, Bobbi Jo

Nice post. I like the brighter look and I like your make-over efforts. As to the love seat, why not move it and see how your family likes the new arrangement. You can always move it back, expecially when Fall/Winter roll around and you want a different look. Best wishes, Nana Banana ( Mom)

Amazing makeover!
I'm in love with that wooden birdcage! Your makeover to that alone could have been a blog post in itself! Wow!
Thanks so much for the inspiration!

Wishing you all the best,
Mary (from BYW 2.0)

I love the table setting, it's very fresh looking. I don't know if you should move the love seat or leave it where it is. The table setting is a beautiful look behind the sofa, but the table itself is hidden (decisions). I have a floor standing bird cage I purchased at a vintage thrift store in Madison, GA 2 yrs ago. Haven't touched it because I've not had the perfect inspiration...this is it. I now know how I want to bring it to life, thanks to you and your beautiful work. Thanks so much for constant inspiration.

Well done post! I am at the beginning stages of redoing our house so I am looking forward to reading more of your blog.
