Over the past week I've been traveling, first heading out to the country to enjoy time with extended family. I have loved visiting this spot - a sprawling 60 acres purchased by my grandfather's bother in 1951 for a song - since I was just a little one. And now it's fun to be able to bring my kids here!
Guilty as charged. While keeping an eye on the kids in the creek from the swinging bridge, hubby and I were deep in discussion over a pesky business issue. That threatened to ruin a glorious day, so work was promptly put on the side for the day!
Kids have it right. Enjoy the moment!
The next day we packed up and headed to the coast, leaving the sunny skies.
This is what beach time looks like in August on the Oregon Coast. No bikinis here, rather the garb of choice is a toasty sleeping bag! (I know, I'm such a wimp...I simply don't like to be cold!!)
But while I was relaxing, I did check in each morning to see what was going on in the online world. Here's a few things that caught my eye:
After a pinner spotted these at PB Teen they saw DIY potential.
Animal toys + wood blocks + paint = fun bookends!
In a dining room by Lizette Marie Interior Design
a sputnik fixture looks fabulous against the dark ceiling and geometric wallpaper.
And a simple but thoughtful hostess gift idea.
Wrap a bottle of a favorite beverage in a pretty kitchen towel with a bow...
a great idea if you are headed to a party this weekend.
And finally, completely out of season, but too funny...
Hope you have a fantastic summer weekend!
