4 fancy things

Summer makes me feel so full of life. The creative juices have been flowing on the mountain, unfortunately I’ve had little time to document all the new and exciting changes. This past week I’ve been so inspired by nature, and my blooming garden! I’ve been doing research about native plants in my climate, and I’ve picked a few to fill my yard. Here are a few I gathered on our evening walk..

hypericum- st. johnswort

local wildflower bouquet

These are all hardy in my neighborhood, and the violet and white lacey flowers grow wild. The pink flower is an azalia bloom, and the yellow one is from a ground cover I’m currently rooting from cuts. Find out what grows well in your area, and get planting!

Recently I picked up a gallon bag full of those letter magnets at a thrift store. We’ve had fun leaving messages for each other and  just being silly with them. Today’s note is a little reminder for myself ;)

In my house caffeine is a way of life. One of my favorite things about warm weather is iced coffee! In the morning we just brew more than we’ll drink and in the hot afternoon we pour the leftovers on ice with a bit of cream. No barista required. Delicious!

vintage thread

Here is a little preview of what’s going on in my new sewing room! I can’t wait to finish and share all my organization, and decor tips! These spools were my husband’s grandmother’s – she was a professional seamstress, and the quality of this thread is phenomenal. I feel so lucky to inherit these, and to be continuing an old family hobby.

Happy Tuesday friends. Pray that I can keep this up ;)
