Random thoughts on a sunny Saturday:
1. Just between us? Sometimes I write this post ahead of time and I actually don’t know if Saturday is going to be sunny. But I always write sunny in the title.
I’m an optimist.
My glass is half-full.
So in my heart it’s always sunny.
2. A new episode of What I Bought Wednesday is live on my YouTube channel. There are so many cute home finds this week, including the prettiest baskets.
You can see it here.
3. Charles Dickens is one of the most brilliant authors who have ever lived. He knows his way around a random supporting character like no one’s business. I just finished watching Little Dorrit on Prime this past week and it is amazing.
4. It was an amazing week on the blog. We discussed:
- how to decorate with hydrangeas
- the best blue and white rugs
- the prettiest blue and white home tour
- this fun vintage find I discovered
4. Remember when I asked your advice about cutting off my white jeans? And you said to go for it? Guess what? I DID IT. I’m so short that I have to cut off almost every pair of jeans I owned.
5. Happy July Fourth weekend. Happy birthday America.
I’m a jean cutting machine.
Thank you for all the fashion advice.
I’m so happy we’re friends.
Let’s see what the internet has been up to this week.
This porch made me so happy.
Those banners are amazing.
I posted this cake on Instagram this week.
It just looks like summer to me.
