Amazingly, our flowers survived most of the brutal summer heat only because September brought a ton of rain. Today I’m showing them off for a fall porch tour, as I join a fabulous group of bloggers sharing their fall porches and patios. Whether I’m your first stop, or you’re joining me from White Arrows Home on the blog tour, I’m thrilled to have you here.

Hello summer! Our cool days are turning hot, right on schedule. To celebrate the change of season, I’m sharing my summer home tour with blue and white accents. I can’t think of anything that says summer more than crisp shades of blue and white. Thank you for stopping by and welcome! Continue reading
This year we’re starting the happy Christmas tour in the kitchen, and of course I have a few plaid accents. I don’t know how to decorate any other way. With all the plaid patterns available these days, it’s impossible for me to pass up. As you scroll through you will notice a hint of plaid in almost every photo. Continue reading
Hello and welcome to Thistle Key Lane’s summer holiday tour! Summer is already here, so let’s get started freshening up the house to make the warm steamy days ahead more enjoyable.
A few weeks ago I made a red, white and blue bandana wreath for the front door, so I thought I would continue the July 4th theme indoors.
Last Christmas, Angus was a wee puppy getting into whatever mischief he could reach. If you know anything about wheaten terriers, you know they typically take at least three years to grow out of their insufferable puppy stage. I keep telling myself, one day he will become a great companion just like our Sandy. Until then, I’m keeping the decorating simple, which means no Christmas tree again this year. Instead I’m decorating Christmas in plaid with stockings, pillows, plates, napkins, ribbons and a bunting.
As the thermometer keeps hitting 100 daily, I’m happy for my flowers, which are thriving but I’m staying indoors. This has been a great summer so far and I want to show you a few summer accents around the home. If you look closely, you may notice my home doesn’t really change that much, I just keep moving my favorites accessories around to different rooms. This is something you can do too and voila, your friends will think you hired a decorator.
I actually worked on my summer home tour before I went to the Haven blog conference in Atlanta. Then I got preoccupied and suddenly realized I hadn’t posted my summer home tour photos. Yikes! If I don’t sneak it in now, it will be fall before you know it.
Welcome to Thistle Key Lane’s Christmas Holiday Tour. Who knew I could have so much fun with a few yards of fabric. I should call this post, “For the love of Plaid”! The tour starts at the front door, with a simple grapevine wreath and knotted strips of flannel left over from the plaid bunting mantel decoration. This year I’m filled with lightheartedness as touches of plaid are added here and there. Let the merry-making begin!
