Hot August days and warm nights
are on repeat over here.
It is hard to believe it is almost that time of year where we are grabbing pumpkins and sprinkling a bit of autumn around the house.
But I am enjoying summer yet.. and this week, the weekend view is all about summer fun.
One of the best perks with having a home in the country is shopping the local farmers market. We stopped by one the apple orchard last week and picked up the most glorious fresh peaches & beets. The apples that we were looking for were not ready yet… these are called Arkansas Black Apples-
but I am thinking there will be an apple picking day coming up soon.
One of the things I like about buying local is that you can buy organic right from the source and you are supporting the local farmers.
I worked on a simple bedroom change this week for the HomeGoods blog. It is all about a quick change with a couple of things. Like a fresh quilt or maybe a new French style chair.
I will be sharing more here soon- but I wanted to let you know that I found the most delicious linen quilts at Home Goods- you know the ones- that are stonewashed linen and soft as can be with gorgeous stitching that are usually around $600-700?
Under $100 at HomeGoods. Seriously.
I also recently picked up several galvanized containers to use as vases. These are fluted and so cute and I have several ideas of where you will be seeing them pop up soon.
Currently- they are marching down the mantel.
Signed Copies of my Book
A quick note that signed copies of my book are now available in the French Country Cottage Market.
I also have several types of book bags/totes available that were ordered for events and signings- and shipping is FREE in the U.S. You can find all the products and order here.
Lamps Plus Giveaway
Just a couple more days to enter the Lamps Plus Giveaway.
A $1000 shopping spree to Lamps Plus to purchase whatever you would like. Lighting, furniture, decorative accessories- you name it.
Coming your way-
details on the recent post about the teepee- and how I made that dried flower garland.
A peek at a recent French find from HomeGoods- that is crazy good. And a sneak peek at one of the rooms in the book and the styling that didn’t make the cut.
And a book celebration post.
Happy weekend everyone.
