Happenings at Home
This morning we are heading up to Camp Timberline to pick up Crosby after she has been gone for a week up in Estes Park. We have all missed her so much and can’t wait to hear how her week went.
Last weekend around this time we were kicking of my Vintage Yard Market in my back yard! It was a wild morning and a whole lot of fun, but it will be a long time before I do another one.
We had people waiting in line out front around 7:30. Once we opened the gate it was non-stop for two hours. I could not have pulled this off without the help of my amazing family. My mom and sister were incredible before, during and after the sale. They each sold a few items of their own, helped me make signs, tag items, collect money , set up and SO much more! Mike and my dad were also a huge help. They did the heavy lifting, kept us fed and did the hard math. Ha The day was only successful becasue we all pitched in.
The best part was that I got to meet several of you! I loved hearing how you found the blog or the sale. And I am also happy that we can now walk in our garage after two years. Yes, it’s been packed pretty darn full since we moved in here. Mostly because we left a 3 car garage for our current 2 car garage. Let’s just say Mike is thrilled and I am not allowed to buy anything new for awhile. hee hee
This Week On The Blog
This week is was all about Christmas in July and casual coastal tablescapes. A great combo, right?
Each year I do a Christmas In July posts and it always leaves me so excited and inspired for the upcoming holiday season. Do I skip the rest of summer and fall and go straight to Christmas? NOPE! But I do get my wheels spinning. It’s a huge time for bloggers and my favorite holiday.

Of course I had to mix in a fun tablescape post. This week’s table setting was a casual coastal tablescape inspired by some new melamine dishes with bamboo accents. Plus my seashells and the fact that I sold our hutch and dresser that were formerly in there. I LOVE how it turned out. What do you think?

I also shared this great round up of Amazon Favorites: Garden and Patio featuring the plates I used on my table above!
