Happy random Saturday everyone.
I hope your weekend is off to a great start!
It is definitely a random edition over here today with things like
tennis, something colorful, a new outfit
and even something to do with
happening over here.
The other day, I played tennis.
Well, okay, technically, I hit a tennis ball across the court to my husband and daughter
and laughed hysterically the whole time as we all ran around
and ended up hitting balls over the fence.
We might have done our best to channel McEnroe
but I am pretty sure we ended up looking a little more like the tennis scene in Bridesmaids.
But hey, we were incredibly entertaining.
Seriously though, I did play tennis when I was younger- so the skill is inside somewhere.
Just check out that tennis outfit
And I want to point out-
who plays in a turtleneck and tennis skirt?
Uh. That would be me.
#2. Weekend fun
Next week, I am off on an adventure that involves something fun, and exciting.
It has to do with something 'holly & jolly' ;)
You might be able to catch a couple sneak peeks on instagram if you follow along over there
and I will be sharing much more about what I am working on soon.
#3. The neutral box
I definitely have a neutral palette in my home- and that is how I like it quite honestly.
Quiet. Serene. Simple and easy to live with. But I am feeling just a tad bit more colorful lately.
It seems like every year when Spring and Summer roll around, the strong light that fills the living room kind of bleaches out much of the faded colors and makes me feel like adding something a little stronger.
So I might be stepping outside the neutral box and going bold.
Okay, let's be honest- maybe not bold, but compared to
simply white on white- any addition of color might be considered bold.
I am not going crazy colorful- but am doing a little planning for some simple changes for Summer.
What about you-
do you find that Summer brings feelings of color or changes to your home?
#4. Warm toes & a new outfit
This week, I did a little bit of planning and working (and relaxing) out by the fire in the backyard.
It was a beautiful evening- but a little chilly so a warm fire was in order.
And while relaxing, I did a little planning.
A new look for my blog- is finally on the calendar in the next few weeks to get worked on
so just a heads up that if it is wonky for a bit when you stop by- don't worry.
It will be back to normal shortly there after.
#5. Enquiring minds want to know...
Last week on FB, I mentioned that I was planning the Summer post schedule and asked for what my readers wanted to see more of on French Country Cottage.
I would love to know what you would like to see more of, less of, DIY's,
what is a burning design question, etc.
I will pick some of the questions, suggestions, etc to write about and share them.
Feel free to leave questions in the comments
or to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Coming your way this week
A berry cheesecake recipe- YUM!
and much more.
Happy weekend everyone!
