Links Worth Sharing

Happy Friday! Do you have a fun weekend in store? My whole family will be together for Easter, which I’m so happy about. Here are some things I found that I wanted to share with you this week. This tiny cottage has so much style. I think I could be very happy living there, what […]

Links Worth Sharing

Happy Friday to you! Is it feeling like Spring where you are? My daffodils are up, and I’m waiting on the forsythia bushes to finish blooming so I can bring some branches inside. This picture is from a few years ago. Here’s what I found that I wanted to share with you this week: I […]

For the Love of Green

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Do you celebrate? Parades? Special foods? I’d love to hear. I’ve never paid much attention to St. Patrick’s Day, but when I did my DNA recently I discovered I’m 1/3 Irish! To celebrate I’m sharing a little St. Patrick’s Day love via my love of all things green. I’m looking forward […]

Links to Love: It’s Almost Spring Edition

How ready are you for Spring? It seems like the longest, hardest winter in a while, doesn’t it? Here in Kansas City, we seemed to have turned the corner with (slightly) warmer temps and rain instead of snow. Fingers crossed that things continue to improve! To hurry things along, I added these white hydrangea pillows […]

Spring Colors and Weekend Links

I’ve been craving color lately, so I added a little to the family room to welcome spring. Blue and white always works, so I added this Delft lidded jar, which was an estate sale find, to the mantel in the family room. And when the forsythia started blooming, I clipped some branches to add next […]

Around the House and Some Links I’m Loving

In September my dad was in KC for some business and a golf tournament and my mom sent with him some fabric she had that she knew I liked. I was ready to change out my kitchen cafe curtains, so I took the fabric back to Florida with me when we visited earlier this month and […]

Things I Love: Library Tables

I’ve been in love with the idea of a library table since I first knew what one was: a large writing table or desk, big enough for more than one person, like you would find in – well – a library. Antique library tables are made of wood and, while some (many?) were made for home libraries, […]

August Updates and Links for Your Weekend

It’s definitely August. The heat is unending, the lawn is showing signs of stress, and my flowers are crying uncle. It’s at this time of year – every year – that I start craving fall. If fall didn’t also signal Grant going back to college, I would be trying to channel it in earnest. Are […]

Links for Your Weekend: Hometown Edition

Several times when our kids were little, Tom and I celebrated our anniversary by lining up my parents to watch the kids, booking a hotel room, and treating ourselves to an anniversary staycation of shopping, movies, and dinners out. I can’t say for sure how many times we did it, maybe it was only once or […]

Links for Your Weekend: Miami Edition

I missed putting up this post last Friday because I was on a plane headed home from Miami. Tom and I were there for four days of a business convention that was much more play than work. Our goal was to make this a complete relaxation vacation, and we succeeded. We ate at Joe’s Stone Crab, […]
