Small change...

It is hard to tell in the photos but we changed out the colour of the cover on our IKEA Ektorp sofa. The top cover is the lofallet beige which we are now enjoying and the cover below is the vittaryd white cover. When we purchased the sofa we had boughten two of the white covers so we would have a change out one while the other was being laundered. 
Since Sweetpea loves to sleep on the sofa I was having to wash the cover every few weeks. Now with the beige one I am dealing with the dust allot better and I am making sure he is clean when he comes in from his walks. Allot of the walking paths are gravel so the dust is high.

My sweetie snapped a photo of Sweetpea and I while we were basking in the sunshine...since he is the white colour of my hair and I was wearing grey I decided to make the photo b&w...

The reflections in one of our ponds was so amazing I wanted to share the photo with you along with two more below that my sweetie shot in the gardens. 
Thank you for stopping in...have a wonderful weekend!



  1. Dear Wanda,

    The sofa is lovely as are the cushions and such a great idea getting a second cover.
    Love the photo of you and Sweetpea, the pond and flowers in the garden
    Enjoy the weekend

  2. Nice photo of you and the pooch! And that pond shot is just wonderful. Love seeing what's growing in your area. Spring is beautiful for you!

  3. Isn't spring lovely on the island? It seems that this year has been especially beautiful, with blossoms like I haven't seen before.
    You seem happy with your Ektorp sofa. I am thinking of getting one for the TV room and find the idea of a slipcover very appealing. We have a dog and little grandchildren so our casual furniture gets full use!
    Thank you for your visit to my blog - I've enjoyed a little stroll through yours.

  4. Sofa cover looks nice and I love the photo of you and sweet pea! Beautiful butterfly too... enjoy your day!


  5. The pictures are great; I really love the one with the reflection in the pond! It would make for an amazing painting :)
