BOTB 7.31.15

By Kate Riley July 31, 2015

Weekend hellos! It’s a full one for us, my daughter’s month long theater summer camp is putting on their production this weekend so we are attending the shows. Saturday I’m putting the finishing touches on the shelter family room, I’m hoping to photograph that and share it next week. On Sunday, I’m headed to Las Vegas for a quick trip to visit with family and photograph the kitchen remodel, that completed space is coming soon as well.

I’m having a hard time realizing that August is upon us already, I’m just not ready for fall yet, I’m still enjoying flip flops and tank tops, but I suppose it’s time to start thinking about back to school. Only two more weeks of summer left. *sigh* This weekend is another round of favorite spaces and projects spied around the web, enjoy!

I’m so inspired by this bean trellis and making a mental note for next year!
