Colorful by Ruthie Sommers

This bedroom picture popped up on Veranda's page today and it is so adorable.  Ruthie Sommers' work has popped up so many times and I always think it is so colorful and fresh looking.  Color being the key word....





I love the bookshelves on each side of the bed...





 This picture has made the Pinterest rounds more than once...


One day I will be brave enough to paint a wall a salmon color like this...




All the rooms are so comfortable looking..love them and Ruthie!

A picture of Ruthie's inspiration board..you can see where she draws from to create such amazing spaces.

 All about color,

Throwback Post

One of my favorite posts popped up the other day..it had me laughing literally out loud.



I try to keep a constant stream of posts going these days but it does get hard when life gets in the way.  I so enjoy looking at these older posts they dangle at the bottom like this...


Unfortunately, most of them click to my old blog address which doesn't exist anymore.  If you want to see the post you have to go to the url and remove the word blog from www.summerinnewportblog.com/xxx

Fun looking back,

Getting Oriented..


Wednesday was our orientation for new Beaux Arts members.  Held at the home of one of our Co-Presidents for next year, this event was so fun and lively.  

Adorable cookies made by Associate Chris Wood












Next year's Co-Presidents gave an overview of Beaux Arts...

and Past President gave a little history.

I spoke for a minute or two but thankfully, there are no pictures as evidence I am a horribly nervous public speaker but this is something I am determined to get over.  Yikes...

Can't wait for next year to start!

Happy Birthday to the Queen!


Queen Elizabeth turns 90 today!  
There are all sorts of celebrations to mark this amazing occasion.  She went out for a stroll this morning and was greeted by massive amounts of her people.








So many ways people are marking the occasion...







For someone her age, she certainly doesn't let it slow her down...


In celebration of her birthday, these pictures were just released yesterday..




Happy Birthday Queen Elizabeth!
and Happy Birthday to Helen O'Connell!

Kate in India

Bazaar just broke down Kate Middleton's amazing outfits on her India tour.  The amount of coverage of her wardrobe was so entertaining.  These are the estimated costs of each of her looks.  One was better than the next....


















The coverage of their tour was endless and 80% was directed to her wardrobe.  Elle Magazine did a survey and the overall favorite was..


These two could not be cuter..I can't get enough of them and their two adorable babies.

This pic yesterday was over the top perfect..


Four generations of the Royal family.  I see this and think Poor Prince Charles, waiting his whole life to be the King and his Mother could live for many more years and then his reign would only be around 20 years..he kind of got ripped off.  Anyway, I can't wait for Prince William and Queen Catherine..so amazing.

Royal Obsessed,
