Random thoughts on a cloudy summer Saturday:
1. It was a big week here at thistlewood. We cut the cable and went with Apple TV. I’d read so many articles about it, but I was so nervous. I have had cable for almost my entire life. That is a lot of cable life. But it was getting so expensive. The price kept going up and up and uppppppp.
So we stopped it.
And now we have Apple TV.
So far so good.
I’ll keep you posted.
2. This week on the blog we created the CUTEST no-sew fall DIY in five minutes and we talked about where I found the rug in the office and discussed 28 creative fall centerpieces and changed things up a little in the living room.
3. Last night we watched the remake of 90210. Hello, high school.
What is going on in Beverly Hills?
I wanted to like it.
Truly. I did.
I just didn’t expect them to all fall apart. Have you watched it? Opinions, please.
4. Also–I’m working on the most fun idea for fall EVER. It kind of involves all of you. And crafting. And making beautiful things for your home. TOGETHER.
Stay tuned. It’s going to be AMAZING. Make sure to sign up for the newsletter over there on the sidebar so you don’t miss it.
