Welcome to the weekend view. All about the week that was, the week coming up and a few random musings. This week – all about twinkling trees, mingled blooms, table on the dock & $500 Shopping Spree Giveaway.
Christmas in June
You know it isn’t unusual here at all… twinkling trees appearing around the house in the middle of summer. To be honest, I love it. A lot. I am a huge Christmas girl- and I think the spirit of Christmas is good all year long. And so are the twinkling lights.
Last week I set a tree up and decked the barn halls for a project with my Balsam Hill family. I will share more with you soon- but I can tell you it is one of the most fun trees I have decorated in awhile.
Fresh flowers on repeat
When I get an order from the SF Flower Market- it is always a happy day. Last week, I got a box of fresh blooms and greens delivered and it included some of my favorites.
Peonies, Dahlias, greens and wildflower mixes- all so pretty on their own- and together- even prettier. I worked on several projects with these- and one of them is all about putting this and that together to create a stunning gathered bouquet for your table.
Table at the Lake
If you have my new book ‘ Inspired Gatherings’ you already saw a few photos of the wee table on the dock at the lake. But there are some behind the scenes stories and photos that didn’t make the cut into the book- and we are jumping in and talking about those this next week.
I also have that funny behind the scenes that happened at Hammersky Vineyards while working that I will share when we delve into the behind the barn shoot photos. Basically, my husband and I were taking notes and laughing the entire time we were working on the book. It was Such a fun book to work on- and make memories while doing it.

There is still time left to enter to win a $500 shopping spree at The Bella Cottage. We are celebrating the new book – and sharing the farmhouse tables that I included in the book that you can also order and add to your home.

We are chatting about that lake setting- and how it came together.
Ideas to create a beautiful and delicious charcuterie board- minus the meat.
Socially distanced gatherings with friends and family- and ideas for how to entertain & enjoy this summer while staying safe.
And the next Book Celebration Giveaway… coming your way on Wednesday.
And to my husband and both of my dads- and also to all the dads, dad figures, grandpa’s and dads waiting to become fathers out there- wishing you all a happy Fathers Day.
