When the sun came up this morning the horses next door looked like they had golden halo's around them.

My "Nearly" Homemade Pineapple Cake

I made this super easy Pineapple Cake and was surprised at how fast it was done and how good it is. 
It's just 3 ingredients:
  1. 1 20oz can of crushed pineapple
  2. 1 18.5oz yellow cake mix
  3. 3 eggs
Preheat your oven to 350 and oil a 9 x 13 dish. (I poured melted butter on the bottom and sprinkled brown sugar on mine. I added what was left of a can of cherries I had in the refrigerator too) Poured it in the pan and baked it 30 minutes. It was delicious. For years my Dad's been making something similar with a boxed chocolate cake mix and can of cherries. 

We all ate on it yesterday but me and my new daughter-in-law Emily ate the lions share!

Valspar Organic Garden - In The Loft

OMG! I'm making myself insane over paint color choices, here's what I ended up with! I like it but it's bright which I wanted, but still shocks me a bit. Hopefully this Valspar Organic Green is just bright enough to be surprising and has just enough yellow to keep it warm but not go pea-soupy. Anyway my brain is tired of thinking about it. It'll just have to work.... 

I can easily change-out the bedding, curtains, a few accents to have a whole different look depending on who our guests are.
I like this Oops A Daisy Collection. It's sweet and girly. I could use it for the bedding, curtains, maybe a throw pillow, etc. It would be easy to make-over the room by just changing the fabrics.



Here's some more rustic and muted fabrics (my camera didn't do them justice) I was thinking of before I found the Oops A Daisy fabric collection by Moda.
