We’ve been really busy lately with kids and our puppy and life and such. And of course I’ve got a million and one projects up my sleeve, some of which I’ve started and some are on the back burner. I did finish painting the sun porch and will be sharing her white painted bricks with you soon. Mr. Macho is building a fire wood holder and indeed, his inner burly mountaineer has been unleashed — I think I even heard him growl once.
Late Summer into early Fall is my favorite time of year as far as the weather goes. I love jeans and sweaters, but still being able to get away with wearing flip flops if I want. We’ve had a couple of absolutely beautiful days in a row here on the Virginia East Coast, sunny and dry with a warmish breeze. And with Mountain Man out back choppin’ wood, it’s been feeling like Fall isn’t too far off.
One way I like to change things up in this little cottage without breaking the bank is with pillow shams, these were $10 each online at Anthropology in the clearance section. I ordered these gathered cream-colored beauties for the sofa to add some texture and freshness without changing everything around completely. You guys know how much I like to shuffle things around! Wink!
These shams are euro size and meant for the bedroom, but I don’t think it really matters. They are squishy and comfy and calling my name now to come snuggle with Miss Paisley.
Speaking of Paisley, she has decided she likes blogging after all! She is always right by my side picking blooms from the back garden and making sure the shots are coming out nice. She totally enjoyed this photo session. She’s also a sucker for lap time and will sit on the lap of whoever is at the computer, for as long as they’ll have her. So sweet!
