Wow how fast is this year moving along? I blinked and here we are at the end of August. The kids are back to school this week and I always have mixed feelings about it. I love the long leisurely days of summer but also welcome the structure and schedule. They’re excited to see all their friends again and it always looks like the group of them grew a foot in just a few short months.
We’re starting a house painting project next week over at the shelter home (the one where we remodeled this kitchen and this bathroom). The exterior is looking pretty sad so with the help of some volunteers and generous donations we’ll be making it over with paint and a few other upgrades, I’ll share some photos when it’s all complete.
And a few posts I enjoyed reading this week:
another beautiful parade of homes
16 projects for decorating a dorm
when designers make mistakes
an end of books
all of these lit based shows and series look great (thanks Jules)
one second on the internet
tycoons not leaving money to their kids
at bh&g this week: styling with wood stumps
