Here we are!
Vicki from The Rusty Rooster, Kathy the blog staulker, Carol from
Shelley our hosted from Sweet Pea Home, me from SueBees and Susie from

We had to do it twice so everyone got in the picture.
And Sylvia from My Trinkets in the middle on the front row!

The hostess with the mostess.
Isn't she pretty among the roses?!

Fast friends for sure.
Vicki and Carol.

I have a feeling this group will grow.

We all really did click.

The famous pose.

Simple but beautiful.
The way I like a table.

The food was delicious!

And look at this desert Susie made!
Makes your mouth water.

Love Shelley's chalk board walls in the kitchen.

So many great ideas from Shelley.

Beautiful mantel.

Comfy family room.

Great hallway family photo's.

Don't you want to crawl in a take a nap?

So cozy.
(someone does live here)

Love all the pillows.
Never too many pillows!
(I tell my hubby)

Every room was perfect.
Shelley really has a talent making a house a home.

I'm sorry this is dark...but I wanted you to see this great work space.

The bathrooms are so charming.

Love the TP holder.
My TP holder in my bathroom came from Shelley's Home Sale.
By the way you need to go to the next one.

Out on the porch was just perfect.

So inviting and relaxing.

I really like this chair.
I can do this!

Look at the size of this thing.
I have been on the hunt for big ones for a while now.

Love the rusty bird cage.

I love peonies!
The simple mix here is perfect.
I can do this!

I'm looking for lamp shades and this really is a great inspiration to me.
We all walked around in awwww.
See Kathy in awwwwwing.

Just so sweet.

So many idea's.
Really makes you look at things differently.

Beautiful vingettes all over the house.
But doesn't look like too much.

Another mantel.

All the doors have room numbers.
I love this.

Top of the fridge..
(even dusted)

Great storage and pretty to look at.

I'm on the hunt for old clock faces.

Look at the wood on this table!!!   I see perfection.

Great hooks.

I will get better a taking photo's someday, I promise.
You can't see how awesome this chair is.

LOVE LOVE this idea!

Great old chippy metal cabinet.

Layering old mirrors!

Old windows peeking through old lacy curtains.

Pretty old mirror as you enter.

I thinks hooks are the best.
My rule now is to never pass them up.

Again too dark but I still had to show you.
She is awesome!
Shelley, thank you for doing this for us.  I have a feeling it will be growing in numbers.
You have a beautiful home.
So inviting and comfy.  You really want to just sit and visit or just hang out.
Great inspiration!
To all the ladies,  I enjoyed meeting Susie and Sylvia for the first time.  And visiting with Vicki and Carol. I feel I have made some new good friends.  We all seemed to connect.
Kathy, you are so special to me.  I'm so glad you came with me.  Our friendship is growing by leaps and bounds everyday.
Love you!

I'm linking with White Wednesday and Wow Us Wednesday.
Thank you ladies for hosting and giving me a place to show off my friends....

The Boston Lady said...

Sue I hate that I had to miss this! Perhaps I can make the next one. Shelley looks like the hostess with the mostess and such a lovely home. I would never guess that house is sitting in Orlando. Just beautiful. And I love the way the hooks were used to hang curtains. Lots and lots of ideas! Ann

You are a lucky girl to be able to see Shelley's home in person. I have admired her decorating talents from afar for a while now. I don't think we could be any further from each other....Pacific NW all the way to Florida. I'll just have to get my fix from your lovely pics.

Thanks for sharing.


Vicki said...

Hello Karen Sue! You got some great shots. So good to see you again yesterday. I hope we do it again soon. Would you come out all the way to Oviedo if I hosted? Let me know! Hope to visit the store again soon. Kathy was sweet. Great meeting her too. p.s. - you have to tell us...are we the only ones that call you Karen Sue or does everyone else just call you Sue? I meant to ask you yesterday. :)

Tynk said...

Looks like my fellow Floridians had a great time! So sorry I missed it. I'll be sure to make the next one, would love to meet all you girls!
Thanks for sharing the pics, her home is wonderful!

Karen, what fun! Crazy, I am looking at these pictures and see things that I did not see when I was there!! You're right so many treasures in her home, but not at all cluttered! Just beautiful!

Lou said...

Ok, there are too many gorgeous "oh my goshes" captured in your pictures. What a great home with so many great ideas. Definitely going to have to revisit your pics again. Looks like you all had so much fun ~ wonderful idea about getting together.....and I have to admit that dessert looks like it was to die for. Yummmm. You definitely are going to have to let Vicki (post above) host and do it all again.

Jane said...

How fun for all of you to get together!! It looks like a great time and I can tell that friendships were definitely formed. Shelley's home was beautiful and I took away a lot of great ideas from your pictures.

Kathy said...

What a great day! One word describes Shelley's home......STUNNING!!!! Thank you for inviting me even though I STILL don't have a blog! (one of these days!)
See you soon!

Sylvia said...

Hi Karen...I am still thinking about our fun day, it was nice to finally meet fellow floridian bloggers and what a treat to meet Shelley at her home. I hope we do this again soon!
