Tell Me Something Good

Does anyone else have that song by Rufus and Chaka Khan in their head now?  You're welcome.  Or I'm sorry, which ever applies.

I lied.  You don't have to tell me something good - just tell me something about yourself.  Yes, that's right.  I'm usually the one doing all of the rambling talking on here, but today I'd like to hear from you guys, my readers.  As I've mentioned before, I'm very thankful for all of you.  Thankful and clueless really.  While there are some of you that I know, many of you I don't.  House of Hydrangeas is growing every day.  With over 4000 views this past month alone, I can't help but wonder who in the world (or world wide web) I am talking to.  So I think you should tell me.  

You seem to be a quiet bunch so to bring you out of your shell (i.e. get you talking, commenting more- don't be afraid!), I'd like you to tell me this... 

1. Your name (or nickname is your prefer a little anonymity).  
2. Your favorite type of thing I write about on the blog
3. Your favorite room in your home.

That's it!  Easy peasy.

Here, I'll even go first to give you an example.
1.  Mallory, aka Mal Pal 
2.  Personal stories and before and afters
3.  I love my dining room!

Feel free to go into more detail if you'd like, but even just a little something (I know your time is valuable) will make me smile.

And even if you think I already know you read my blog, I'd still love to hear from you!  Your comments always brighten my day!

I get back from Virginia tomorrow...my goal is to have just as many comments as I do views for the day.  Are you up for the challenge? :)  I'd love to come home to an inbox full of comments... and my sweet hubby and Remington of course!

Southern Gentleman Baby Shower

Last month I helped throw my best friend (we met in 9th grade speech class :)) Lauren's baby shower for her soon-to-arrive baby boy, Gunner.  The shower had a "Southern gentleman" theme complete with bow ties, silhouettes and gingham print.  Personal touches and family items were used throughout, including baby Gunner's dad's bow ties :) Gunner's daddy's "going home" outfit greeted guests at the sign in table, along with a framed "Southern gentleman in the making" print. A variety of centerpieces graced the tables with groupings of baby mementos, flowers and photos. An antique baby basket helped house the gifts. The drink menu consisted of milk, apple juice (one of Lauren's cravings), fruit-infused water and coffee. The menu was made of a variety of brunch goodies including fruit, doughnuts, muffins, shrimp and grits, breakfast casserole and a waffle bar.  And of course no shower is comp

Table Decorating Contest

Jon and I are leaving to spend a long weekend in San Antonio with his parents and his brother (who will be town from Arizona).  But before we go, I wanted to leave you with some pictures from the Officer Spouses Club Table Decorating Contest that was held last night. I called Jon on my way home from base, and he immediately asked "How was the contest?" to which I responded "Victorious." The 32nd FTS, our squadron, took first place! The theme was Silver Screen so we decided to focus on famous quotes from each movie genre. Each place setting featured a different movie. We had a "drive-in" for our center piece where clips of the famous quotes were shown. Welcome to the Jayhawk Drive-In! Wizard of Oz place setting. The glass had a button you could turn on to make the water swirl and look like a tornado inside. Also notice the witch's feet sticking out from under the plate :) A close-up of the yellow brick road I painted. Silence of the Lambs pl

DIY with Branches

Fall is in the air and that means that many empty branches will soon be too!  Might as well put them to work in jazzing up your decor.  You know what they say...when life gives you branches, make things out of them!  Okay, maybe that's not how it goes, but it's what I'm going to do.  If you'd like to join me, read the DIY projects below. Branch Coffee Table If you're in the market for a contemporary coffee table, but don't want to dish out hundreds (sometimes thousands) of dollars, this is the solution for you.  It's a relatively easy DIY project with room changing results. What you need: 1.  A thick branch (or branches depending on the look and size you want).  Maybe you can help a neighbor cut down a tree.  Then it'll be a win win.  They get the help they need, and you get a new coffee table. 2.  A piece of MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) wood for the base of the table.  Cut to the appropriate size for your limbs-making sure the limbs don't stic
