Sweet Slumbers {Dreaming of a flower garden}

I love bedding, I wish I had numerous 
duvets and comforters so that
I could  change up the look of my bedroom in 
an instant. The Master Bedroom in my 
home is one of those rooms on the list 
for a makeover…at some point.
I love floral prints, I find them so calming 
and dreamy, like pastel icecream.

I picture a room with a bed dressed in 
floral linens with an open window
 and soft sheers blowing in the warm breeze.

has some of the nicest floral quilts, comforters
and duvet covers that I have ever seen.
Here are a few of my favorites.

Scrumptious Homemade Mac & Cheese

Comfort food in July?
Why, yes!

It’s a hit with the kids and just simply
a great meal. We love it in our house.
And the best part is it’s so easy to make.

And your house smells oh so good when it’s baking,
makes you want to curl up on the couch and read a great book.
It’s a rainy day here in Torbay today, so I may do just that!

Toppables crackers.
I omitted the paprika but added fresh pepper instead.
