Fun New Series!

March 7th, 2011

Greetings all, happy Monday, I’m just putting the finishing touches on the boy’s room, then I need to snap some photos.  I can’t wait to show it to you!  It’s all finished just in time for his 5th Birthday (which is today, hooray)!  

Meanwhile, I thought it would be so fun to have a series of link parties throughout the spring and summer with topics for discussion.  These will be specific subjects, and I hope you’ll join me in a party or two.  I’m calling each of them a ‘Fair Weather Forum’ because they are all related to topics specific to these seasons.  Consider this your invitation to link up your best tips or latest project on the topic of the day.fair weather label

These ten link parties will take place on Mondays twice a month.

Here is the schedule of topics:

March 28th:  Spring Decorating & Cleaning

April 11th:  Easter Ideas

April 25th:  All Things Paint!

May 16th:   Outdoor Décor & Entertaining

May 30th:   Garage & Yard Sales

June 13th:   Summer Activities (Favorites & With Kids)

June 27th:  Fourth of July Ideas

July 11th:  Favorite Vacation Spots

July 25th:  Gardening

August 15th:  BBQs and Picnics

 

I’ll be writing up a post on the topic on the scheduled day of the forum, or featuring a new project.   I hope you’ll join in on the fun, and link up with your ideas, plus see what others have to say on the topic.  It should be a great sharing and learning experience.  

Mark your calendars, see you there!

xoxo,

Four Favorite Finds

March 6th, 2011

I discovered a miracle in a Nashville hotel, the most genius invention for any gal’s feet, I had to share.  I’ve been carrying these around in my purse for weeks now.  J’adore does not begin to describe.  Have you spied these?  Foldable ballet flats that fit in a pouch. 

I’m a shorty, so I’m always putting on heels when I travel or go out and about.  These little flats have saved my feet time and again, like on airplanes or at last night’s school auction.  You can pick them up for $15 in different colors here.  I’ve even started wearing them around the house instead of my typical bare feet, and to hide my chipping toenail polish.  Stylish.  Metallic.  Genius!
