Hi friends and happy September! Are you still in summer mode or are you ready to move onto fall? I have to admit I’m ready for a break in the heat if nothing else.
It’s been a while since I checked in so I thought I would share a little of what’s been going on around here, at least according to my iPhone.

We needed a new runner for our stairs and I went with this wool plaid from Stark Carpet. It was a bit of a splurge, but these stairs are a big focal point in our house and I wanted something special. I was super relieved when it was in and I loved it as much as I hoped I would.
My granddog Milo looking very handsome.
I took a chance on this wool blend rug from Amazon for the piano room and was so pleasantly surprised. It’s affordable and much softer than the seagrass and jute rugs I usually favor.
Another new rug…this one for the living room is the Lenna from Magnolia.
This photo by Susan Kaufman has been the wallpaper on my phone all summer.
On a recent trip to Nell Hills I fell in love with this block print fabric in colors perfect for my home so I grabbed a couple of pillow covers for our entryway.
As soon as this weather cools down, I’d like to add some more potted boxwoods to the patio. They’re so easy to take care of and I love the green they add to patio.
The bag I’ve been carrying all summer.
I’m so excited that football is back. We had our first KU tailgate and game last Friday. I love the rare KU night games. The sun looks so pretty setting over campus.
We stayed in town for the Labor Day weekend and I took advantage of the downtime to put together this puzzle that I picked up a while back. I have a few puzzles from this brand and I really like them, especially the 500–piece puzzles which are faster to put together.
And finally…the biggest news…there’s a new baby girl coming in December! We are over the moon excited. Send me all your grandma names!
P.S. More life lately posts.
