Author of several gorgeous books including this one all about entertaining and creating stunning tablescapes, Courtney shared a tour of her prop room located in her home.  I'd feel like a kid in a candy store if I had that space in my home, and I spent way too much time staring at every photo she posted ogling all of her pieces!

No doubt the #NSale is likely all you've heard about in your blog roll and social media feed the past few days, but today I thought I'd share my top 5 picks from the Nordstrom sale with you as well.   I'm partial to sharing end of season clearance bargains with you, but this sale is fantastic because it's full of current, new, ready for Fall pieces that are on sale now to take advantage of before the season begins!

The sale is only open for card members right now, it takes seconds to apply (here) and you can shop with your card immediately upon approval.  I caved and got a card yesterday so I could buy now, but if you don't want a card the sale will be open to the public next week (although by then many of the most popular items and sizes will be sold out).

For the most part, I have plenty of "going out" winter clothes (button ups, sweaters, jeans, pants, boots etc.), but I can happily go days in the winter without leaving the house so I like to have cozy but cute pieces for those days too.  Those are the pieces I had my eye on for the sale, and I'm excited about what I got!

I've actually wanted these wedge sneakers since last year but never caught a good sale on them, however this time I finally purchased.  I like how they'll dress up leggings and a long top or sweater a little more than athletic shoes but will be just as comfy.



Welcome back for this month's round of My Five Favorites!  Pam from Simple Details, Lisa from Shine Your Light, Kris from Driven by Decor and I are all so excited to share our favorite garden related plants, tools, and products with you today. 'Tis the season to enjoy the outdoors!  I'm not a huge gardener, but we try to keep our yard and flowerbeds looking fresh and presentable.  I've definitely found a few things that work best for us, but I'm looking forward to seeing some great tips from my pals today too.



There are two things that I detest shopping for... a new refrigerator and a new mattress.  With both, there is only so much you can determine about the item in the store before you purchase it.  You just have to get it home and try it out for a while before you know if you really like it or not.  And the bummer is, if you don't like it, it may not be possible to return... and if it is returnable it's definitely not an easy process with such a big ticket item.  Well, I can confidently say that my list of despised things to shop for is down to one (refrigerators) because of our new Solay Sleep hybrid mattress!  



Boy, the months sure do fly by!  Here's a review of what's been going on around here since April in case you've missed a post here and there.

A good deal of April and May was consumed by my daughter's room makeover for the One Room Challenge.  Here's the reveal post, with all of the details and weekly updates also linked in that post.
