Random Inspiration Pictures

LOVE the colors here...(Country Homes & Interiors)

A little fancy French Country... 
but is does look snuggly... 
I have very tall ceilings, 
so I am liking the going vertical on the book shelf...(Better Homes and Gardens)

I've always wanted a window seat, but don't have the right window spot, but this might do..
.(Better Homes & Gardens) I have a little rocker I could paint like this...

This looks cozy, too!  

If you have those slip covers, can you tell me if they are all they are cracked up to be?  'Cause I've loved them for years, and am at the point of needing to do something with my couch and love seat.

Don't forget to come to my Prior Lives Party.  It will be open until the end of June, since I only have it once a month!  Some really great stuff! It has been fun to look around, so far.

I sure have enjoyed looking at, "Where Bloggers Create".  It has gotten me in gear with my spot and I have drooled over Linda's pics of Ki's, Bachman house.  I feel like I got to go, her pics were so detailed, and we like the same details.

We had a good Father's Day... All five kids, SIL, DIL, and both grand daughters, just hamburgers and a lazy day...We are putting hubby's name on the veteran's memorial here in town.  I think he was touched.

It seems like I've been leaving comments that haven't shown up, so sorry if you think I haven't been around your blog, lately.  Who knows maybe I forgot to do something.

tried to comment once but it went away....sorry if it posts twice. I love the photos. One of these days I want a window seat too. And I really am on the lookout for old ladders now, so many cute uses.

Love the lamp in the rocker photo and the globes I am in search for a globe! My daughters room has a window seat and I am now inspired to move her stuff out and redo it my way!!

I hope you have a wonderful week!

Hi Lezlee,
I have a white slipcovered couch in my KITCHEN (you need to come by and see it some time!), I love it but, here is the dirty truth in an old post on our blog...
Take care, and did I ever tell you how cute your hair looked at Winnie and Tululas?
Take Care!

I love all the pics! Especially the first one with the flowers and the ladder! Glad to hear you had a great father's day!

I love the color of the bookcase in the last photo. I have slipcovers on a small loveseat and ottoman...crazy about them. I bought mine at JCP a few years back.
Tell your husband "Thank You" for his service and congratulations...what a thoughtful gift!

Hi Lezlee

Thanks for stopping by my post today. I love comments. your momma's bottle trees are so funny. I wish I could see what else she has up her sleeves!!

I wish I had a window seat too.

Love the window seat.. without a window, that's cool! I have no experience with furniture covers - and what a wonderful gift to have your husband's name on the memorial. Awesome. We put my son's name on ours when they were building it. I think we should have waited until he was here, it's more moving. You did it right.

Hello Lezlee....!

So glad you enjoyed Fathers Day....! Thanks for the eye candy....I swear if I didn't work full time & weren't such a hard core Junker, I would stay home & surf the net for inspiring pics ALL DAY.... :o) !!

Ooh speaking of junk....I was out & about yesterday & came across a street called 'Prior Street' which made me think of you....And smile....!

Cheers lovey....Have a GREAT week,
Tamarah :o)

Hey Lezlee-- Love the first picture with that funky ladder and those pretty flowers and scrolly iron work; all of it gorgeous!

I think you and I have the same taste in decor ideas, too.As for the slip covers-- I'm wondering about those myself. Good idea on the War Memorial, I heard about it in the paper I think.

Oh, and as for the leaving comments and not being able to see them thought... I noticed I was doing that too. Make sure you don't have to enter the word verify blank before you close the window out up top...otherwise your comment won't post. I was doing that in quite a few after you post your comment wait for the page to reload and fill in the word verify and hit enter again... hope that helps.

Oh, some fun and pretty inspiration and ideas here. I like the idea of doing the little bench beteen two bookcases.

Love that built in window seat. I'm thinking about doing that in a bedroom with a sofa you have two rooms in one...bedroom/library! Love the French Country! Pretty post.

I looove all the inspiration pictures you've shared with us, they're wonderful. I had a window seat at my last two homes and really miss that cozy spot in this home. Thanks for visiting my blog and your kind words! Debbie @ Cottage Hann~Me~Downs
