Friday Link Love, Vol. 1.97

Friday Link Love…and just like that, it’s August.

With only a few weeks left of school free summer, I’ve been thinking about how I want to spend these last glorious no-lunch packing, no homework monitoring, no school sports/activities shuttling days. As much as the kids and I have been spending a lot of time together and occasionally grating on each other’s last nerve — more specifically, they’re grating on mine! — I am going to miss this low-key time together.  I think about how many more summers I’ll have left before my 8 yo little guy doesn’t want to hold my hand anymore, or if I’m under-appreciating those small moments when my daughter finally declares domination over the playground monkey bars. To be honest, all of this sappy stuff might be the result of monthly hormones. Just in case it’s not, the next 2 1/2 weeks I’ve decided to attack our summer fun bucket list with a vengeance. Which means I actually need to create one… So moms, local NE Ohio/Cleveland residents and all-around creative people — please help a sista’ out!

What’s on YOUR summer bucket list?

Wednesday Wish List

Every few months there is a shift in my brain’s functioning and my preferences and attentions turn away from personal fashion and lean more toward interior design and decor. It’s like clockwork! Well, the brain waves have shifted and all I can think about lately is finishing up some of the rooms that need a little attention and love. It’s time.

Summer 2014 Home Updates

Dining Room: 1/ 2/ 3

I’ve been lusting after new dining room chairs and these just may be the winners. Throw in a colorful table runner and some bold candleholders and this room is ready to party.

Family Room: 4/ 5/ 6/ 7

Having cathedral double-height ceilings is a blessing and a curse.  The light is extraordinary, decorating the vast bare walls is not.  I’ve been thinking about a gallery wall.  This artwork would be total perfection.

Master Bedroom: 8/ 9

A bench at the foot of our bed has been on my “to-do” for a little while.  This one is the ideal combination of rustic and industrial.  You know how I feel about that style! In case you don’t, you can read all about it HERE.

Kitchen: 10/ 11/ 12

I’ve been a die hard devotee to Le Creuset cookware for close to 10 years.  These blue lovelies will fit right into my collection.  Oh, and you can never have too much ice cream.
