a charming home & a winner...

Hi everyone, thanks for hanging in there while I was away.
We had a wonderful time, it was gorgeous and we squeezed in a lot of fun activities, I haven't
 had time to go through my photos yet, but I'll share some of them soon.
Today I have a treat for you, I'm sharing the exterior and garden of a charming home.
 I met the delightful owner at my garage sale, she's a friend of a friend and happened to
 introduce herself and let me know she reads my blog. I'm still so thrilled and surprised when
 I run into someone who reads it! :) Before she knew what hit her I was asking if I could
 feature her home and was there taking photos for all of you.
 Her passion for design, gardening, diys and pink are unmistakable..enjoy! 


I love her fearless use of color on her front door, before pink it was apple green.


Gorgeous window box, she has a bit of a green thumb! 


I didn't ask, but I bet she made that whimsical pillow, she's quite the seamstress, as well! 


She added the portico and brick floor to her porch. 


If anyone out there is wavering about painting their brick,
 this is a perfect example of how stunning it can look!


The breezeway between her house and garage, with a classic dutch door.


She graciously let me take photos of her backyard when I begged! 
Look what she's getting ready to make - my Restoration Hardware knock-off


 Her beautiful backyard and patio looking toward the house.


A glimpse at her amazing garden. 


Of course, I had to ask what she was planning for this box of thrifted treasures I spied. 


She makes these unique pieces of art to display in her garden,
 a birdbath is next on the list. 


A gravel path leads to an intimate seating area surrounding a fire pit.


Another seating area, I love the vibrant, bold yellow accents paired with black and gray.



She's as beautiful and stylish as the lovely home and garden she's created.
Thank you so much, for allowing me to share your charming home, Bev!  

And, the lucky Shabby Apple winner...
Congrats to Amber Peters, enjoy your new dress!

Leslie, I'm sorry but she didn't know, it was a custom matched to her siding.

Sarah @ Simply Sarah Style said...

I agree! Her use of color is fearless. That pink was probably a big risk, but it makes such a "wow" statement.

Karen Albert said...

Love her home exterior and gardens Pam! The saturated pink is wonderful! I keep forgetting that I want to make the garden spheres!

What a lovely home and garden. I love how she makes the garden art out of thrifted objects.

Love her flower boxes!:)

Oh my goodness how beautiful! Would it just be too much for us to beg her to let us see inside? Anyone with such a beautiful exterior must have a beautiful interior.

That pink door is amazing!
