This weekend features some favorite projects and spaces in the continuing ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ series, enjoy!

Greetings everyone! This weekend, we’re taking advantage of the fine fall weather and hosting some friends for dinner out in our courtyard. Ever since we hung strings of globe lights out there it feels enchanting and cozy in the evenings when we light up the outdoor fireplace.

We have a full weekend of things to do, tomorrow we’re headed back to Grandma’s to get more estimates on her kitchen renovation. I can feel fall in the air so I’m in the mood to go grab some pumpkins for the porch this weekend. My local Trader Joe’s has a great selection of Cinderellas every year and they arrive tomorrow, so I’ll be stopping there to stock up. This weekend is another round of inspiring projects and ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ favorites, enjoy!

We love this neutral textured boy nursery by Autumn at Design Dump !
