Hey everyone, happy Sunday to you!  Can’t get too deep into June without a quick recap of May, here’s the top ten not to miss posts!

5.  DIY rock covered planter bucket; 6.  beach bliss in Bodega; 7.  fish tacos with chipotle lime cilantro slaw; 8.  how to digitally layer furnishings without Photoshop; 9 . DIY mosaic tile planter, 10. summer color crush: orange + pink


In other news, we made some real progress on the window seat this weekend, will show you this week!  Today I’m groovin’ to this fun song by Spencer Day while I paint the new frame and install the cabinet doors – if you’re a Bublé/Connick Jr. fan like me you’ll dig it too.

Have a great day…

  1. Wow you are one busy and talented girl. All your projects are first class. Love your blog.

  2. Oh my goodness, I know Spencer Day! (grew up in the same town.) I had no idea he had made it as a musician! Thanks for passing along the fun tidbits like that along with the amazing ideas and inspiration you share every day!

  3. I, of course, LOVE all your projects – BUT I also like to learn about new music – thanks for sharing!

  4. Excited to see how the window bench comes out : ) I love the idea of a monthly recap too! I may try that was well. Thanks for the inspiration!
