FEATURES THIS WEEK

Mary, of the blog, Orphans With Makeup, shared a fabulous furniture makeover...a dated secretary...I am such a fan of cottage charm and this just fits right in with that sweet style.


Summer time is here and we still have to eat but who wants to spend time in a hot kitchen.  
Growing up Gabel shares with us a scrumptious, easy summer time dessert, that's just perfect for the 4th of July


And finally, I couldn't let this post go by with mentioning Father's Day.   My husband, my Dad and both my sons and grand-daughters love to fish and Dining Delight has a totally delightful fish theme table setting...... so much inspiration and ideas here.

Now that Memorial Day has come and gone and most kids are now out of school, summer is truly upon us. Summertime for me means hanging out by the pool, eating meals on the deck, working in the garden, and trying to avoid housework of all kinds. While I might be dreaming of taking it easy, it's clear from last week's party that our party-goers are not--so many great ideas, so little time!


Share Your Style Features


Pam from Everyday Living took us on a rainy day walk through her lush and lovely garden. Her apricot roses are particularly stunning. It has inspired me to keep plugging away in my garden in hopes that one day I could have something half as nice.


Summer is blueberry season and Linda from Crafts A La Mode made my mouth water with all the succulent berries in her recipe for "The Best Blueberry Breakfast Bake." I will definitely be making this for Sunday brunch on my deck.


Nicki from Sweet Parrish Place completely dazzled me with her "DIY Rustic Wood Wall." It's hard to believe that she constructed something so fantastic looking at no cost, using only old fencing that she salvaged.

Congratulations to our featured bloggers. If you were featured, don't forget to grab our Share Your Style button to display on your post. 


We would greatly appreciate if you could include a link back to our party on your blog post.  Stylish family friendly posts of all kinds are welcome but please don't repeat the same link for one year. Also, take the time to check out and comment on your fellow party-goers posts.
Party on!

Summer Home Tour 2017



Good morning everyone and welcome to 21 Rosemary Lane. If you arrived here by way of Alicia's blog Thrifty & Chic, welcome. I am sure you enjoyed a wonderful tour of her beautiful home. If this is your first time visiting 21 Rosemary Lane, let me just say I am so happy your decided to stop by on this leg of the tour. And for those of you who have been here before, well I hope you find some of the changes I made to our home to your liking. So without further ado, on to my summer home tour of 2017.



Our home here in the suburbs of New Jersey is a mid century cape cod style home. I love the traditional layout of our home which sits on one acre of land, I would share with you the front exterior of our home this year however it is being prepped for a major face lift this summer. So here is a peek at what she looked like last summer. 


Our plan is to remove the old landscaping in front of the brick portion of the house and put in a porch which will extend the length of the brick facing. We also plan to apply a mortar technique to the brick in a effort to give it a more aged look. We also want to put in a new walkway with new landscaping, and replace the front door. Our goal is to achieve a look something like the mock-up below.


So after sharing that little tidbit with you come on in and take a look around! This year for the summer I decided to switch out the cute Antibes green chair in entry and replaced it with a potted plant.




In the living room the large rectangular pane mirror was swapped out for this little more contemporary round mirror I found last week at Home Goods. Just the change needed for the summer.


I also purchased a few new Tommy Bahama throw pillows to add that tropical feel to the sofas.


The little Antibes green chair ended up replacing the original piano chair. Now that I am looking at this pic below, I think the chair would be stunning in front of a white painted piano!


The dining room met with a change last week in the way of color. Yup the blue gray is gone and it is now in with a green gray color called Nantucket Gray from Benjamin Moore's historical collection.





Just below the dining room window is Mr. Rosemary Lane's much cherished rose bush. When the window is open the sent wafts right into the house! 


Our lilies on the side of the house are also in full bloom right now.


And while we are outside let me show you our backyard. Yes that is an above ground pool cleverly disguised with several rather large ornamental grasses. Later this month I will place Tiki torches around the pool for Grace and Micheal's evening swims!


Finally our back screened in porch is the hub of our summer living. Every piece of furniture on the porch was acquired from a thrift shop, a roadside find, or was just simply bequeathed to us. Some day I'd love to buy all new furniture for this space. 






And so ends this year's tour. I want to thank Marty of the elegant blog A Stroll Thru Life for putting together this incredible series of blogger home tours. Next on the tour is Decorating Delirium with fellow blogger Jennifer. I am sure you will be wowed by her beautiful style.

And be sure not to miss any of this week's tours!

Here at Kingsbury Brook Farm, we have been busy planting our vegetable garden and adding lots of shrubs and perennials to our flower beds.  We also welcomed six ducklings and five fluffy white chickens to our little farmstead.  I always enjoy taking a break from tending the garden to soak up all of your inspiration and creativity each week.  Happy June!

  Here are a few things that caught my eye from last week's party. 
Maria from the blog Tinselbox is sharing how to throw a pink and gold party!  This dreamy tablescape would be perfect for a bridal shower and how about that four layer Vanilla Cream cake topped with roses and peonies?  GORGEOUS!

  Father's Day is right around the corner and this sweet and meaningful printable Father's Day book from the blog Homestead 128 is sure to make every dad and grandpa feel loved and appreciated.

 I am currently in a cooking rut trying to find new summer recipes and this Greek-style quinoa salad from the blog All That's Jas looks so delicious and refreshing.  Can't wait to try it!
