Cherry Blossoms Wall Mural (in the Spotlight)

This is shaping up to be one crazy week!   My niece is getting married in October.  She's here from Texas for her bridal shower & we've been running around trying to get so much done for both the shower & wedding.  Not to mention, both my kids have a number of doctor/dentist appointments before going back to school in September.  It's always everything at once!


It's time for another Newbie Spotlight of the Week. 
It's been awhile since I shared a spotlight with you, so here goes.  

The Newbie Spotlight shines on:

Leanne painted this fantastic wall mural for her daughter's room.

I love it and wish I had the talent (and patience) to paint like this!

So please, go take a look around at Leanne's blog, The Burlap Cottage.

While I was hanging around The Burlap Cottage,
I found this photo of Leanne's porch.

Don't you just want to sit in that chair & rock away a few hours
of a sunny Summer or Fall day?  
I know I do.

See you soon, my lovelies!


Welcome! I'm Gina. Like the header says, this blog is all about home, food and life..


  1. That porch looks pretty inviting to me, especially on a cooler sunny day like today. :)

  2. That porch is calling my name!

    Happy back to school season! Believe it or not, I still get the "feeling" (anxiety ~ LOL), when I walk through the stores and see all of the teacher lists, school supplies and dorm decorations. (You know that you have dorm decor in your future and you will love it!)

    Back to that restful porch for the both of us!

  3. It is a busy time of year isn't it.
    Good luck with all the dr. and dentist visits... at least then you can cross them off your list :)

    Going over to check out the links.


  4. Ohhh...what a spotlight Gina! I love it. Have fun with your niece. It will be here before you know it. Thanks for sharing the spotlight.

  5. Super pick G. I saw that mural and thought it was gorgeous too :)
    Love the porch, I better go visit!

  6. The cherry blossoms look great! :)


  7. Love those cherry blossoms! What a wonderful looking porch and good luck in the upcoming week-xo Diana

  8. Gosh I wish she could paint something on mine - that is beautiful! sandie

  9. Wow! That is awesome wall art! Very impressive! And I love her porch, so pretty and welcoming!

    Hope your children have a great year at school! One of mine went back to college last week, and the other started 8th grade today, so I am empty nesting, and planning a big cleaning purge of the house! :)

  10. Hi Gina, So sorry I am tardy in getting this to you but a huge THANK YOU!!! for featuring me in the newbie spotlight! I was having a terrible time with spam, got that fixed, but now all of my comments were going into spam, and I just now fixed that and found your kind feature of me! (I guess you can tell just how much of a newbie I am, I just thought no one was commenting on my posts, sniff, sniff). Your spotlight has been such an encouragement! I just love your blog and thank you sooo much for what you do. I also looooove the chair you redid - it looks professionally done, many would pay big money for that! : ) Love and hugs, Leanne@TheBurlapCottage
