a site for {uninspired} eyes

With nearly 3 weeks since my last post, I feel like I needed to at least surface and say hello! Thank you for checking on me. Everything is well here, just very hectic. I have my mother in law coming to stay with us for 17 days, starting 6.1, and we have been rearranging the house because our TV went out and hubs insisted on buying a large TV which necessitated the purchase of a media console, which necessitated losing at least one piece of furniture in the living and family rooms, which made for loads of rearranging and tweaking and condensing and spring cleaning. Whew. No pics yet as we're still not done. And when we are done, it won't be that exciting so don't get your hopes up. Anyways, I just bumped into this site today: http://abeachcottage.tumblr.com {for some reason I cannot get it to link!} and thought I'd share. I'm not a beachy decor person per se, but with these lovely pictures to inspire, who cares what the style is called? Hope you enjoy....

Isn't it amazing how one little thing can trigger an avalanche of change around the house? That gathered bedspread is incredible! What lush ruffles!

J'adore that bed so much! I've seen it in a magazine before and I knew I wanted something like that. I just wish I knew how to sew. Luv this post.

Welcome back...I understand how life gets in the way of blogging!

Thanks for sharing these images. This home has a Scandinavian influence and feel to it.

The fireplace mantle used as a headboard is genius!
