We met up with Kat (JustaBeachKat) and her very nice hubby, George, last year when we went to Seagrove Beach and this year had the opportunity to spend some extra time with them. We went to their gorgeous home and they are blessed to live fulltime in Destin now that they are retired and truly do live in Paradise. Their home is a stunning Tuscan design and we visited with them at their home for a bit, then went out for lunch at a Mexican restaurant. George tooled us around on their golfcart, showing us all around the Baytowne Village at Sandestin. It is such a fun place, just like being in Disney World. Kat is such a warm and genuine person, truly a sweet and gorgeous lady.
And I got to meet their precious pup, Miss Daisy in person and she welcomed me with lot of kisses and made us both feel very welcome. I'm such a dog lover and she was so sweet. Her coat is like silk.
Kat and I with Miss Daisy in their beautiful home. Kat is a super decorator and their home just oozes warmth and beauty everywhere. I told her they don't even need to leave to go on vacation with all the ammenities at their fingertips. Gorgeous lanai and a pool in the backyard! After lunch we stopped by for fudge. Oh, I ate too much last week...isn't that always the way it is on vacation?!
Lots of eye candy.
This sofa was a real bargain at $550. I think it was a consigned piece. I've loved this toile fabric for a few years now and if I had a place for this, would have snapped it up in a minute. Very comfy down blend pillows too.
And of course, lots of seashells. I bought 2 of those white starfish that were HUGE to add to my collection.
Lots of fun things to look at
Whimisical painted furniture in one booth space. I loved all of this.
And what a sweet bunny lamp.
Kat took me to a landmark in Destin, called Dewey Destin seafood. I actually got to go here 3 different times. We went with some other friends too and liked it so much we went back. I was happy to find this place and from the looks of the crowds out the door, lots of people are finding it. It's a hole in the wall out on the docks, but the food is the BEST.
Kat and Me...in my entire outfit of yardsale finds. They were perfect for the beach.
Plenty of birds to watch

It was such a fun time visiting with Kat and I'm so happy we got to spend some time together. This is our third time meeting and it really is like hanging out with an old friend. Thanks Kat for showing me all around your favorite places. I loved it and hope we get back there soon! I have 3 more days to share this week, so come back for more. Then, I promise we'll get back to decorating and some other fun things!
