Your house looks so inviting. I love all the pictures. My favorite is the blue flowered bedskirt in the first picture. That is lovely!

I was distracted by the bathroom you featured with this post. It is lovely!


That bed is so fresh and colorful. I love the bedding.

You're like a world wind! Where do you get the energy?



The bathroom is so beautiful. I love the bedding. We are laying new laminate floors too. I love them, don't you? Easy on the feet I think. The little journal is just beautiful.



The bed is so precious. I love the bed linens you used!

Karla: I have been reading all about your trip it seems so fun. I never get to do things like that. You are very lucky lady. Good job on all you hard work at home. You have to get really inspired to do that. It all looks so lovely and welcoming. Enjoy your Sugerwings, as always she is a delight to read about. Martha

Hi Karla, from the look of things you have done a great job with you Spring Cleaning.

But...you just can't beat magic wands, books, and giggles.

What a cozy spot you have created for Sugarwings! I could so nap there!! Nothing like a clean, orderly house to put you in the mood for crafing!!

Nancy Maxwell James

I am loving all the photos posted - but the first photo of the bed really tugs at my heart. I love all the vintage fabrics and cozy feel, it reminds me of staying a cottage somewhere as a child. Beautiful! :)


The bathroom is too pretty! and I can't think of a better thing to clutter up with than magic wands!!

Dear Karla ;
Hello, and glad you're home from your trip safe and sound.
I'm so sorry to hear about your Aunt Caroline. I know you will miss her.
I too lost a loved one this past weekend.
My Uncle, in Virginia. June 20, 2009.
Well, take Care. Glad SugarWings is ok, too !
Deborah Woodrow

Lisa Bartholic

Karla, I am so sorry about your Aunt Caroline's passing. She sure did live a long full life. I hope I have my Mom around that long if she is not suffering. I loved the 100 card idea - what a great memory!!!

Have a great vacation in Florida.

Love, Lisa

Karla, thank you for always sharing so much of yourself with us. Your home is gorgeous and so inspirational!! I'm getting ready to redo my son's old bedroom, into a shabby chic-Karla's style- bedroom for my two young granddaughters. I can't wait and I DO come here for inspiration. So thank you again! Have a great Sunday!

Margie Staniszeski
