Best of May & June + Home Depot $250 Gift Card Giveaway

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014

This week is my official summer break due to the travel adventure ahead. Also it’s Independence Day week/weekend so we plan to spend it together as a family relaxing poolside and sharing great barbeque. Before I check out for the remainder of the week I wanted to feature the highlights from the blog from the past two months: best of may june 1

My Summer Fabric Collection is available: bright colors, island inspired! Tour a beautiful Hawaiian beach cottage and read up on our favorite stops to play and eat in Kauai. I love the conversation in the comments on window treatments for sliding doors.

Favorite Christmas Card Displays

Wednesday, December 18th, 2013

The cards are arriving each day, three or four, and it’s always a delight to open the envelopes and see what everyone has been up during the year and how the kids have grown. In years past, I’ve used both jingle bells and ribbon attached to a corkboard to display the cards but the past two years, I’ve just taped them to the windows on our French doors so we can enjoy them as we walk by. At the end of the season, they find their way into a big scrapbook to look back on years later.

I’ve spied some fresh and fabulous ways to display cards around the web, enjoy the list of favorites! (Sources for these creative ideas below the images.)
