Let’s talk about how a spring vest creates new outfits with what you have. When I tried it on in the store over a button-down shirt and jeans…it finished off my outfit. So, I ended up walking out with it on (after paying for it, of course).
AND I have four other fun things to share along with Cindy and Annie today.
1. Beautiful Designs By Rachel Halvorson
Do you follow Rachel Halvorson on Instagram? Here is some eye candy for you. I will try to condense into JUST ONE word my favorite thing about the photo. Tell me yours if you can.
And that chair and fabric.
But I wonder how it’s to code to get the pool so close to the house? Who cares?
2. Sweet Handy Dishwashing Brush
When Cindy Hattersley was washing dishes at my house (she insisted), she marveled at my dish brush.
I like how the dish soap is always ready in the reservoir. So, I sent her one!
3. What To Read: “The Guncle”
A reader, Laura, commented on the blog: ” I am still living blissful after reading a great book, ‘The Guncle’. Weird title, yes, but a life affirming and great book about love. Romantic love, family love and best friend love. Grab a tissue, you will need it!” Thanks, Laura.
“ …a warm and deeply funny novel about a once-famous gay sitcom star whose unexpected family tragedy leaves him with his niece and nephew for the summer“.
I am listening to in on audio from Libby. It’s funny and sweet. Do you have any book recommendations for me?
4. Linen Vest To Create New Outfits With What You Have
This new linen vest inspired me to create a couple of outfits out of things I already had. It’s a fun extra layer to finish a casual look. It comes in Tall, Regular and Petite in beige, white and a stripe.
I’m wearing a petite 8. I will wear it with white jeans and a tee-shirt in the summer.

5. What To Cook: Garlic and Honey-glazed Pork Chops
Our son, Tommy is here and cooked delicious Honey Glazed Pork Chops with sliced roasted potatoes with Parmesan cheese. He made the following additions to the pork chop recipe:
- roast sliced wild mushrooms in the oven with olive oil, thyme, salt and pepper at 350 degrees for 15 minutes
- slice pork chops when cooking is complete
- top the sliced port chops with the roasted mushrooms, glaze sauce and chopped parsley
That’s it for this week: a vest that creates new outfits with black, white or blue denim closet staples, tasty pork chop recipe, designs by Rachel Halvorson and more!
