Hello! How are you doing? I’ve been busy with some design projects that I will hopefully be able to show you in the coming weeks (check out my Instagram stories for the occasional progress shots). Sometimes I will think “I need to share this with my readers” and I put the idea in a draft post…and pretty soon it becomes “Five Random Things I’m Loving Right Now!”
Summer Reading For You
You know how much I love my Kindle. I’ve been reading more with it. It’s so easy to tote…fits in my purse. And I will definitely be taking it with me for our summer vacation.
Here are some books that I highly recommend!!!
Where The Crawdads Sing This is a touching and surprising best seller.
Beneath A Scarlet Sky (free on Kindle with Amazon Prime) It’s about a young man’s extraordinary challenges in Italy in World War II. True story! I think my husband will love this one, too.
The Extraordinary Life of Sam Hell Another heartfelt story, charming story. I could relate to the Catholic school part.
My blogging friend, Kristy’s Harvey’s (Design Chic) new book is out. The Southern Side of Paradise (Peachtree Bluff Series).
Kristy sent me the paperback, that I’d like to give to you since I am going to order it on Kindle. Please leave a comment for the chance to win it.
Korean face mask
My husband brought back these face masks from a recent trip to Korea. You can get them on Amazon. You leave them on for 20 minutes while doing something (like writing a blog post or folding laundry). Afterward, you pat the remaining serum into your skin. My face felt plumper and softer after one use.
I just saw this versatile ottoman in Target for $69.99. I can think of lots of uses for it.
Pledge to Clean Patent Leather
A shoe repairman told me that Pledge is a good cleaner and conditioner for patent leather. Did you know that? I just used it on this “vintage” purse and two pairs of shoes. They look much better.
That’s it for now. On Monday, I’m going to post about a “Summer Travel Wardrobe.” Our big vacation is coming up and I’m getting excited!
Have a wonderful weekend.
