I Love These Ideas! Sunday

Kimba at A Soft Place to Land always has great ideas to pass along. Here she combines a platter, wine glasses, votives, gourds and pine cones for a creative, use-what-you-have centerpiece. Clever and resourceful!

Here's an idea I plan to try. Rhoda at Southern Hospitality offers a creative suggestion for covering up grout that never seems to look clean. I've had our tiled kitchen floor professionally cleaned ... and sealed... and it looked good for about a week. So I'm glad for Rhoda's suggestion. I'll let you know how it turns out on my floor.

Finally, this from A Romantic Porch. It's not so much an idea as it is a photo essay about summer. I love how she approached this. Take a look and escape to a lazy summer day... for a few minutes...

I'd love to hear more ideas for future I Love These Ideas! Sunday columns.

Drop me an email at: Mary@AtHomeRedesigns.com if you've got an idea of yours or someone else's to share.

Hi,
Seems like lots of us have the grout problem!

We don't have a craft store here in town...so I may just order my paint online. I really need to do this project!
Have a great day,
Diane

Hey, Mary, thanks for liking the grout idea. Yeah, sometimes you have no choice but to try to fix a problem like that, so I resorted to painting that grout & never regretted it. I know there are much more sophisticated methods out there too. It's definitely worth the time to do it.
