Weekend Reading

Friday, February 8th, 2013

Friday hellos to you all, I made it safely home and it’s so good to be back. I was in Charlotte with the Rust-Oleum team as they unveiled some new stain products – I’ve been working with one of their new colors on an outdoor project, I’ll share that soon!  There are a few new articles over at my Better Homes & Gardens blog, hope you enjoy these.

Friday Finds

Friday, January 25th, 2013

Hello all and happy Friday!  I’m still out of town, but wanted to share a few lovely links with you before taking off to enjoy the weekend.   But first, here are the latest posts over at my Better Homes & Gardens blog, be sure to read the most recent articles!

I’ve been wearing both this bracelet and this bracelet while at ALT – they’re my new favorites but as I mentioned on Instagram today, completely impractical when I need to type!  So they ended up off my arms more than on today, but I prefer to wear bracelets more than necklaces and these go with everything from dresses to denim, they’re fabulous and fun!

Have a great weekend!
