Friday Crush- Summer Entertaining

I am covered in grout.
Loads of it.
Like my shoes weighed an extra 5 lbs each when I took them off last night.

BUT. A great leg workout and the bathroom is looking amazing.
  And we will have another usable bathroom again very.very. soon. 
Which is pretty darn exciting if you ask me. 

So I am sharing something simple for your Friday crush post today.
And it has nothing to do with tile, mortar or grout

Photography- Keep it simple.

There was a time  a couple years ago when I was contacted by a
magazine publisher in Europe who was interested in using one of my photos 
in one of their magazines.

First-  I almost fell over- because I couldn't believe it.
But Once I took a few moments to chill - I found the photo and sent it and
waited with my fingers crossed that they liked it.
there was the uh-oh
that changed the whole course of what happened next.

Inspired by~ blush & cream

Where do you look for color inspiration for a project?

Sometimes it is something simple that inspires you.
Like the way the sunshine dances across a dark stained hardwood floor
and reveals so many shades and tones in the wood.
Or the subtle veining on a deep green leaf on a tree
or the softest shade of pink in a flower petal.

Saturday Five

How is it Saturday already again?
Sometimes I feel like the week just zips by
and I can hardly believe that it is time for the weekend re-cap again.
