Hello from San Diego! We are down here to go through my sweet departed mom’s things and to celebrate my birthday! Speaking of my birthday…I bought myself a sumptuously soft, lightweight cashmere pullover featured in this Five Faves post.
I am also showing a deluxe farm kitchen update, a good movie on television, a Fall pumpkin craft that my 92-year-old mother-in-law also implemented! And, of course, we have Cindy and Annie’s Five Faves, too. I am happy that these posts are so well-received!!
1. Martha Stewart’s Farm Kitchen Update
My hairstylist, Inna handed me the September issue of Martha Stewart Living. Have you seen it? It shows the impact of paint and a fabulous collection of copper pots. The Before isn’t bad with yellow cabinetry…
“When Martha updated a kitchen on her farm this summer, she opted for a few impactful changes over a gut renovation, adding fresh coats of paint in new colors, smarter appliances, better organization, and striking displays for some of her favorite collections.”
Martha kept the black soapstone counters.
2. What to Watch: News of The World With Tom Hanks
“Five years after the end of the Civil War, Capt. Jefferson Kyle Kidd crosses paths with a 10-year-old girl taken by the Kiowa people. Forced to return to her aunt and uncle, Kidd agrees to escort the child across the harsh and unforgiving plains of Texas.”
Howard and I thought this was good.
3. Embellished Pumpkins
I put it on my Instagram and my mother-in-law, Earlene was inspired to do this with what she had on hand!
4. Comedian Mary Elizabeth Kelly
Do you follow her on Instagram? She cracks me up with her impersonations.
5. Soft Cashmere Pullover Sweater
This is such a soft lightweight sweater. I bought it for myself for my birthday (do you do that?). It’s got an updated cropped look with flowy arms. Comes in this floral and six solid colors…and in standard, petite, and plus sizes.
