Good morning! Hopefully, things are going well for you. All good here! I’m excited to tell you about some really remarkable finds in décor, on TV, some deals on cute dresses, and more. Cindy and Annie also are telling us about their fun finds at the end of the post. I love Sundays!
Last Thursday, I had the best time with my blogging pals! They had a little birthday celebration for me. Can you believe I met each of these creative women on the internet and now we are friends in real life? If this is like internet dating, I think it’s great!.
Elizabeth from The Vintage Contessa, Cindy Hattersley, and Kim from Northern California Style and I met in Marin, Ca. at the new Restoration Hardware. We had lunch in the rooftop restaurant and it was delicious.
I brought masks as party favors!
2. Southern Living Idea House 2020
This home tour is beautiful. I am going to re-subscribe to the magazine. Lauren Liess was the lead designer and I love her organic look that feels vintage, homey, and fresh! “The location really was my starting point. My vision came from the views outside the windows of the house,” says Lauren.
This makes me want to move to the mountains in North Carolina! I think using a lot of white with vintage items gives it a modern look.
3. Rebecca Movie Remake On Netflix
We watched Rebecca on Friday night and I loved the scenes of Monte Carlo, England and the clothing!
3. Decorated Pumpkins
Kim from Northern California Style brought these cute embellished pumpkins as party favors to our lunch. She made them herself (more about it here)! Mine got slightly damaged in the car so I foraged for natural elements on my walk with Chief, pulled out my glue gun, and added a few things (but Kim did most of it).
And then I was hooked! I wanted to embellish another pumpkin that I had on hand. It’s fun!!! There are some affiliate links at no additional cost to you. I appreciate your support.
I got the pumpkin-shaped pods here and the preserved moss here. The succulents came from an overgrown bush outside. The berries are from the flower stand. Get creative. You could use whatever you have like Kim did with dried flowers. These would be fun party favors on your Thanksgiving table.
4. Great Cookbook For A Pandemic
“I often say that you can be miserable before eating a cookie and you can be miserable after eating a cookie, but you can never be miserable while you’re eating a cookie.”~Ina Garten
Ha…and can you see that little bit of remaining birthday cookie?
5. Dress Deals and More
My colorful, comfortable tunic dress from Anthropologie is on sale with an extra 40% off. I bought it thinking I could wear it next summer but we had a warm day. I purchased the XS regular (I am only 5’1″).
One more newsworthy sale if you love Serena and Lily as I do.
Use code LOVEHOME to get 20% off almost everything until October 29. Since their site-wide sales are unusual, this is a good time to buy. Their bed linens are sort of expensive but wonderful. I especially like the cotton and linen quilts as I have. They get washed often since we let Chief sleep on our bed and they still look great.
Those are my Remarkable Finds in Décor and Deals! You may also like Fresh For Fall Home Decor At Target.
