This week, on the blog, I shared a red, white and blue tablescape.

It’s a fun and unique twist on a patriotic theme, just in time for your summertime get togethers.

I was honored to join “Thrifting With The Gals” as their guest host this month!

I shared all about “Finding Treasures at Thrift Stores and How To Use Them“.

Be sure and take a look at all of the thrifted treasures and ideas from this talented group of ladies.

I went on a short road trip to visit my parents last week, and took the time along the way to stop in every thrift store and resale shop I passed.

I love stopping at different thrift shops and antique stores along my travels. You just never know what you will find.

I shared a few of my treasures in my post on Thursday. You can see that here.

I can’t believe it’s already June!

Where is the year going?? It is already so hot in Texas, and I’m not a fan of summer.

Fortunately, my husband and I are going on a trip to London and Ireland in about 3 weeks, and the temps should be in the low 70’s for a high. That is sounding really great right about now!

thank you
