Home Style Saturdays 2019

Welcome to Home Style Saturdays…a place to come for easy decor ideas, a little DIY, seasonal inspiration, and everything in between. We’ve reached the middle of May, and I hope this finds you all well and safe. As our nation begins to come out of its cocoon, I pray that everyone stays healthy. My family members are fine so far, and I hope you can say the same. 

For the first time in many, many years, I am completely and utterly ready for summer. I’m finished with the cold nights, gray skies, and a dampness that makes my bones ache! The trees have finally produced leaves, so I know the warm days are not far away. 

Enjoy your weekend!

  1. Hi Ann, My day is suddenly brighter when I see your email. I enjoy the same things you write about. They are so down to earth yet beautiful. This has been especially true in the past few months. I think I am getting used to being home more or less alone for long periods of time. Since the weather has finally decided to jump into spring in our area the porch ideas are especially welcome. Keep up the great work. I must not forget to thank you for the beautiful printables. I often use them and have had many positive comments.

  2. Your patriotic porch is beautiful. I hope to try some of your ideas on my front porch. Have a blessed weekend.
