I have wanted these slipcovers from Ikea for quite sometime. We were in the area for my daughter's soccer tournament (about that later) and lo & behold they were on sale!! They are discontinuing the color so the chair slipcover was....$9! So I bought 5 of them & the sofa was $29 so I got 4. I will be re-doing my family room in the spring so they will have to wait to be used until then or maybe I will use it in the bedroom. Not sure, just knew I had to have it at that price! OR one day, my dream is to have my own girly get-away all old chippy white window room on the flat roof part of our home sort of like the one posted here Urban Farm Girl.

Most fav house in Ruston

Ruston home

A few times a year, I drive by this amazing home to get inspired/motivated to get my yard in impeccable shape as this yard is. I cannot imagine not a stray grass nor the slightest weed in my flower beds. Each year as summer ends I tell myself that next year it will be different. I will get an early start & my beds too will be perfection. I guess it will have to be next year...ah-gain.
