Happenings at Home

Here at home this week it was all about photoshoot prep for me, basketball for Grace and dance/ballet for Crosby! Plus, we were watching my nieces for a few days while my sister and brother-in-law were on a trip. And I couldn’t have done it all without my wonderful who husband was a huge help, so thankful to have him on my team.

We are looking forward to spoiling him this weekend.

Between shuttling kiddos around and blogging I was able to get my hair cut and get a facial (my Mother’s Day gift) from Peggy at BASK Salon who I can’t recommend enough! She simply spoils you so if you need a facial tell her Kelly sent you. Oh, and she also tinted my eyebrows which is a VERY new thing for me. I kind of like it too! Can you tell in the photo below of Peggy and I?

This week On the Blog

In case you missed it this week on the blog was once again a busy one! Up first I shared our summer home tour along with 29 other bloggers sharing their summer homes too. No matter what you style is there was something for everyone. Please start the tours here if you haven’t already and have fun!

Then on Wednesday I share this gorgeous, dried peony wreath that I am in love with. You won’t be live how easy it was to put together.

And finally, Yesterday I shared a post featuring a design pattern that I am crushing on, timeless tortoise shell. Pop on over and see what all the fuss is about!

Links and Loves

This week I did not do a lot of shopping on-line much to my husband’s delight! But I did still manage to order a few darling things from Amazon!

Coming Up on The Blog

Next week on the blog might be a bit busy! So I better buckle down and get these posts done. I will be sharing our backyard tour as well as another lovely outdoor summer tablescape. I was thinking I might just do a Summer Tablescape Series…I have so many ideas brewing in my head.

  1. I have a question for you. A friend gifted me a really nice 8 foot long church pew. I see you have one outside and wonder how long you have had yours outside and wonder if you have used any special treatments to help slow the deterioration. There is no space in my home for this pew although I do love it.

    1. Hi Jean! What a lovely gift your friend gave you! Ours has been outside for quite some time now. I did originally seal it with General Finishes Exterior 450 but will be doing it again soon. Miss Mustard Seed milk paint has a ne product I have used called MilkOil-Outdoor! Hope that helps. Enjoy your pew!

  2. Kelly, I love the sneak peek of your gorgeous brand photo shoot. How fun! I need to find a photographer here in Nebraska to do one for me! 😘 Can’t wait to read your post about it.
