The Latest

Friday, May 25th, 2012

Well today is the day – school is officially out for summer and it’s filled with teacher goodbyes and a last day of school picnic.  Now begins twelve weeks of kids at home, which is always a transition but I seem to manage by spending less time in front of the computer and more time outdoors.  I’m looking forward to all the fair weather and summer fun!  I’ve got a few DIY projects in the works too, can’t wait to finish them up and show you!

Did you catch the May issue of Better Homes & Gardens?  It highlighted the topic of innovation, so today I’m sharing my favorite apps for smartphone and iPad over at Centsational Style.  Share yours too!

Patriotic Porch

Friday, May 28th, 2010

Happy Friday friends, are you excited about the long weekend ?  This week I was in the mood to decorate my porch with some red, white, and blue in honor of Memorial Day, and also in anticipation of our Fourth of July barbeque. 

I found some inexpensive fabrics and stitched up some festive pillow covers, then I filled my pots with annuals in patriotic colors.  This summer, I’m having some fun with punches of red on the front porch !
