Well it’s official, the kids returned to school this week and we’re back to our normal routine. I love that annual trip to shop for school supplies, one of my favorite rituals, yours too? This weekend Matt and our little boy took a quick trip to Pennsylvania to see the finals of the Little League World Series with Matt’s brother and his son and from the texts I’ve been getting they’re having a great time. Of course we’re rooting for Team West, go Las Vegas! Here at our casa it’s a girl’s only weekend, we’ve got sleepovers and shopping and pedicures on the agenda, and other girl related fun.
It’s ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ weekend again, and Amanda and I rounded up our favorites from the past few weeks, enjoy these inspiring projects and ideas!

I really like the burl wood effect. I have some unfinished wooden boxes and some this and thats that I think I will try painting with this finish. Fun project I am guessing!
I really like the Ensley Cabinet in teal. Thank you for this opportunity to win!
Kate, I’ve made a padded lens cover for my long lens thanks to your BOTB. I give you credit in my blog post. Thought you might like to see the final outcome.
