Weekend greetings! What are your plans for Father’s Day weekend? We’re spending most of it around the house, gardening, barbequing, and then attending a local play. Summer is in full swing and we’re loving it, the way the light reflects off the boats in the local harbor, and how the established perennials and the vegetables we planted seem to double in size each day. Pumpkins, beans, tomatoes, herbs, and more, don’t you love the smell of the leaves on your fingers after you touch them?

Today it’s another round of favorites spied around the blogosphere, enjoy these lovely projects and spaces! Don’t miss Brittany’s navy, gold, and white kitchen makeover, so beautiful!
