- Kyle and I really want a fire pit but we don’t quite have the patio for it yet. If/when we do have a patio in our backyard, I might have to consider a DIY firepit like this one in The Brick House. It’s a little labor intensive–especially compared to the purchased versions–but I really like the look of it when it’s finished. (via 2Modern Blog).
- If you’re not doing anything this weekend, how about you invite me to some kind of football-related party? I’m super excited about football returning and if I show up, I’ll definitely be toting one of these Peanut Butter “Cheese” Balls from The Girl Who Ate Everything. I discovered this on Pinterest this week and I’ve been looking for an excuse to make one ever since.
- The Fox Is Black has a winner of its latest re-covered books contest for ‘Jane Eyre’. I really like the cover. It captures a lot of the mystery and haunting of Jane Eyre but it’s also really beautiful. As I think you probably know because its all I’ve talked/thought about lately– I’m reading Harry Potter. But I think a re-read of Jane Eyre might be next in line for me.
- On a less serious note than the whole Jane Eyre – Mr. Rochester situation, check out these great bent object scenes by Terry Border, featured in Bent Objects: The Secret Life of Everyday Things on Brain Pickings. Who would have thought that a pickle could become so relatable? The humor in the scenes is really clever.
- How beautiful is that photo? Those are tulip fields in Holland and I’m seriously wondering why I’ve never seen pictures like these before!? All of the land just looks so lovely and I’m amazed by the deep blues and purples in these photos. (via Daily Mail)
- Alright, I’m asking and I really want you to answer. Okay? What do you think about wreaths? Do you use them? Do you think they really add to your decor? What do you do with them when you’re done? Well, this week The Nester from Nesting Place featured a link party in which people showcased all their personal wreath goodness. And, I’ve got to say, I’m a bit of a convert after seeing The Nester’s book page leaf wreath (the second one on the page).
