June Highlights

July 1, 2014

Goodbye 85.8 degree temps, Hello 95.8 degrees....just like that. Welcome July.

Although we have some amazing things going on in July, it's not one of my fav's when it comes to the temperatures. Way too hot. When you walk from the house to the garage ( approximately 8 steps)  and sweat is already dripping from the forehead..... too hot.

Here's a few highlights from June, in case you missed any of it.

We are in the patriotic spirit around the house with my mantel here

and a fun tablescape here that I created out of .99 duct tape.

Enjoying my hot tea and cheerios here in our Summer breakfast room.

I am ready for you on the front porch here where I shared 5 tips every porch lover should have.

I turned an old plant stand and planter into a fun ice bucket. Perfect for those hot days outside.

and after a few long months, we finally finished the kitchen and revealed it here.

How was your month? Got any fun things planned....besides sweating?

  2. Oh that kitchen...it looks fantastic! Lots of sweating here in Texas. Summer is definitely here!

  3. You certainly had a great month of fabulous projects including that spectacular kitchen makeover!...

  4. Laura, you have had a busy month with many great projects! Your kitchen is fabulous! I know you're thrilled with the results!

  5. I'ts hot and sticky in NJ right now too... Love your projects and I am still blown away by your kitchen!

  6. Your kitchen is beautiful!

  7. Laura, I am dying from this heat in Florida! Your home is beautiful and I am in love with the kitchen

  8. You had a very productive June around your house! I'm not a fan of the hot humid weather here in July either. But, I guess it's better than those that live up north with the terrible winters. I'd rather have a hot summer than a freezing winter. Thank goodness for air conditioning and shady spots outside.

  9. Beautiful!
    Everything is just beautiful!!
    Still major crushing on your kitchen makeover dahling... ;)

  10. Porch and kitchen great. Love lamp in kitchen. Did you make?

  11. Really beautiful patriotic touches, and your kitchen is a knockout! Speaking of temps - we did the opposite: From 88 to 66! Weather = who knows?! ;0) Jane
