Aiken House & Gardens: Simple Pleasures

Aiken House & Gardens: Simple Pleasures  Sharing Carolyn's Simple Pleasures post-perhaps it will inspire us to create a serene spot in our own "yardens" and linger "awhile". Dreamy~we deserve it!


  1. Hi Jonell,
    Thank you for your visit today and also for the link to my blog.
    I enjoyed taking a look through your blog today too.

    Enjoy the rest of your week.


  2. What a lovely post and link. A great reminder to enjoy "the simple pleasures".

  3. Glad you sent us over the Carolyn's! So many beautiful sights through her lens.

    As for my short time at the longest yard sale, believe me, I wanted to stay longer but I was granted one day by my daughter and I only had a short time with her to get her place ready. Unfortunately I don't get much vacation or travel time. Gotta fit in what I can! And you can leave your tips and thoughts in my comments anytime!

  4. Jonell, I can't wait to hear the ideas that came to you as you sat fringing burlap. Where did you get the sacks? I wanted to tie the fringed ends of my table runner but the ends were actually the finished edges where it comes already stitched to prevent fraying. So I didn't bother. Fringing the entire length seemed too much of a job that might end up always looking messy since its the part that lies on the table top instead of the part that hangs over the edges. I do want to try that on something sometime though because I think that is a really cute look. So what were you making?! Tell, tell!


This is intended to be an exchange of thoughts, recollections and ideas.
