Sunday Sharing From the She Shed

Happy Sunday, friends!

I am currently traveling with a dear blogger friend Lynn Vogler @livinglargeinasmallhouse. We are headed to Texas (our final destination) for a bloggers conference with our mastermind group.

I flew into Chicago on Thursday, stayed the night at Lynn’s, we woke up early Friday am, and the two of us (Thelma and Louise) drove 8 hours to Kansas City, Missouri, to meet another blogging friend, Diane @southhousedesigns.

What a treat to be at Diane and Lynn’s beautiful homes. They both live on the water and have the most amazing views.

We had a ball! We traveled through three states and stopped at the World’s largest truck stop and we even found the perfect hats for our trip.

Saturday, we took an adventure to the historic West Bottoms of Kansas City. There were piano players in the streets, lots of food trucks, and so many antique stores to shop in; then, we ended up at Nell Hills, one of my favorite home decor stores. I am actually going to purchase some new furniture for the family room and they will drop ship to my home in California, I am really looking forward to a little update in the family room.

Stay tuned to see what I am doing.

What is Happening at WM Design House

While I am gone, my hubby and son are busy caring for my garden and the animals.

I could not believe all of the flowers when I left, I could not cut them fast enough.

I took some to the office, put several arrangements in the kitchen and told all of my friends and family to come cut a few bouquets. If you live near by, just let me know.

Are you wondering what this parrot is doing in my tree? well, it is a funny story….

In 1978 when I was a junior in high school, there was a fire in a local pet store and the parrots got out.

Here we are in 2024 and there are so many wild parrots that still live in the area. They are very pretty, but very loud.
