Oh Koralee;
Polka dots are my absolute favorite design element on just about anything.
I was the kid who stood outside the church and scooped up the confetti after the wedding party had left and glued it on everything..:)
(I still do love confetti)!

Hi Koralee!

Congrats on your daughter, Molly's Graduation!!!
So happy you are enjoying your family ♥ I can tell there's lots of love there!

Your "ready for summer tea" shelves are inspiring! My cupboards right now look too "work-ish" with most of our travel mugs in the forefront!
I should take a picture of that!

Congrats on this magazine feature of your blog, your talent and total sweetness!

I always say that my blog friends have photos, stories, recipes and creativity as good, if not better than any magazine to which I've ever subscribed!!!

I will definitely be on the lookout for the August Romantic Homes issue...
They were "right on" in "setting their sites" on your blog!!!
So proud of our BlueBird ♥
