I was searching through a box of artwork my daughter created when she was young looking for inspiration for my next painting when I came across this cute note she passed me when she was 8 years old. It was so typically girly that I just had to save it. I call this painting “The Love Note.”

My daughter’s painting:
This pink and blue beach-themed porch was one of my all-time favorite porch projects. My inspiration was the colorful rug from Pottery Barn. It was an indoor rug and it didn’t fare well outside even on my covered porch, but I enjoyed it while I could. I ordered the adorable polka dot pillows from the Pottery Barn Kids catalog. If you’re a color lover like I am, Pottery Barn Teen or Pottery Barn Kids offer colorful accessories often at a lower price than their regular catalog. So the next time you’re shopping for colorful home accessories, don’t overlook the kids department. OK, so now my secret is out.
