- My dining room is already kind of rainbowy because Kyle and I fell in love with a rainbow plaid summer tablecloth. Now I’m looking for ways to make it a year-round look. I’m not sure it’s possble, but if it is, these Rainbow house ideas: inspirations for adding color like WHOA from Offbeat Home are going to be the inspiration that does the trick. I love those chairs!!!!
- Mary’s shared a beautiful family tree with you all in our hope chest a few months ago but this Beautiful Family Trees roundup prepared by Poppytalk on Babble has even more great finds. It makes me really want to finish up our family genealogy to get one done.
I don’t have much this week, because I’ve been super busy. And for some reason never seem to get enough read. But, what I do have really stood out to me. The idea behind lively purposefully and being conscious. Enjoy!
- Jules from Pancakes and French Fries wrote a post last week called “Unstyled Life.” She shared her thoughts on “what happens when you buy to fill a hole instead of feed a passion.” I talked about these same thoughts and ideas here. It really speaks to me. Buying purposefully. I feel like we are sooo inundated with designs and products that we forget what we like and what we want in our house.
- Going along with these same ideals is a blog recommendation from a friend on Facebook (Thanks, Erica!): Kitchen Stewardship by Katie Kimball. Her faith is represented in her blog and I love what she constantly seeks to reiterate, “God gave us our health, our earth, our time and our money. For those of us who spend a lot of time in the kitchen, we are met with challenges in all four areas a daily basis.” Even if you don’t share Katie’s faith, the concepts still remain true. In our kitchen we should be conscious of our health, earth, time, and money. Thus, composting is now on the MUST DO list for our kitchen.
