Hello all and happy summer to you!! First of all, thank you so very much for the lovely comments on my last post! We had a fantastic celebration this weekend and kicked off the new chapter right. What’s funny is I think my husband may be almost as busy “retired” as he was teaching – he’s got so many projects and organizations he’ll be working with. It’s already started!
It’s time for the June Before and After Party, already! I’ll just tell you now that June means summer (duh) and summer means I turn into a sloth. It’s true. I sleep in, take lots of naps, take lots of time away from the computer…so bear with me. I’ll probably go down to three posts a week, maybe even this week. We’ll see.
I was SO stinking impressed with all the links last month! I was seriously in awe and it was hard to stop with the highlights. They are were all awesome, here’s just a few that caught my eye!
Rachel’s home was beautiful before but now it’s simply stunning:
I DIE! I love it! Just lovely. Go here to see more on the transformation and the landscaping!
I have seen a lot of paint swatch art but Fabrizia’s was the coolest so far:
She said it didn’t take long and it makes such an impact! Art is usually so expensive – this is just the opposite!
OH my goodness, I was drooling over Courtney’s bathroom redo:
Just…seriously? Awesome. They DIY’d this too! Totally impressed.
Rebecca took a cast off piece of furniture and gave it a FUN color:
I don’t if I’d be brave enough for yellow but it is perfect in her home! She always rocks it.
I love how Brandi took an older sofa (that is perfectly nice and comfy) and made it look so different with modern pillows:
I love EVERY single pillow – what a great combo! She mixed patterns perfectly.
Cindy is pretty much an awesome mom – she helped her kids paint their kitchen cabinets and it turned out SO GOOD!:
I am digging the two colors – it is so modern and fresh! Want to come to my house next Cindy??
Kammy created a beautiful room for her daughter – all the details are just lovely:
That floor is especially amazing, isn’t it?
And the last one, but I could have kept going! I loved the kitchen over at Create Bake Celebrate – especially this armoire and the stone backsplash:
I have an obsession with anything x’d lately. Love that cabinet!
Now it’s time to see what you were up to in May! Like always, please add a link to TDC or this button (copy and paste the code) to your post to be considered for the round up post next month:

Now it’s time to link up! The party will be open for a week, have fun! I’m off to take a nap!
