Sea & Sweater


Taken on our annual girls trip to Monterey 
We are soaking up the last bits of summer vacation here in Bodega Bay before school starts on Wednesday. Honestly, I am looking forward to being on a more consistent schedule but will miss our fun adventures and ease of a vacation morning.  
Here are a few easy reads and items I have had my eye on for your Sunday morning. Enjoy!
 A informative blog post on current trends for home! 

I am LOVING everything at J.Crew for Fall but especially this

A helpful website for those that love to is what you should be doing for the month of September! 

Thinking of adding a pop of color to my table scape and theses water goblets are just the thing. 

I am currently obsessed with this blog for organizing life, home and finances. 

Are you still harvesting tomatoes? MAKE THIS iYUMMY! I have made three times in two weeks.

The navy blazer is the perfect transition piece to take you from summer to fall. This versatile layering essential looks beautiful over your more summery looks and helps protect you from an evening chill as well as a delicate sweater or dress for the cooler months. 
Little note on these jeans...they are Spanx. They are beyond comfortable, incredibly forgiving and not transparent! 

 Lady like Jacket. This would look equally adorable over a dress or tee and jeans. Great transitional piece. / Pink pumps. These are too sweet to pass up. / Small Tray. This would be lovely as a catch all. / Very affordable beach towels / One can never have too many cute straw bags! / This print is too beautiful to pass up! / How pretty would a touch of pink on a table scape? 

Week eight(final) of the One Room Challenge! This was a labor of love. I am very new to the DIY world and this felt like a huge undertaking. Learning how to plumb a sink, demo tile counters and flooring, was challenging yet oh so rewarding. To be perfectly honest the room is not done. I lost two weeks of work to the kids having ear infections and spring break. I need to hang the cafe curtain, wall paper behind the washer and dryer, install drawer pulls and touch up the paint on the cabinets. 
The biggest issue is the floor. The tile underneath is not complete level and smooth and many of the vinyl tile will not stick. Most frustrating. I am very proud of the work I have done thus far and will share once it complete!

The sink and faucet makers? 
The faucet is Kohler and I bought this gorgeous drop in sink was bought on Wayfair
What color did you paint the cabinets and who makes the wall paper?
White Dove by BM. It is the most perfect neutral white and I plan on painting the kitchen and family room is this creamy white. 
Ralph Lauren. Unfortunately, it is discontinued . I found a source for RL wallpapers and fabrics that are a fraction of the price then then original price. I think I paid around twenty dollars a roll rather then the original price of one hundred in seventy! 

     What kind stone did you install for the counters and who makes the flooring?
Carrara. I really wanted the same stone my kitchen and would lend its self to the 1920's utility space I wanted to mimic. The flooring is stick and peel vinyl tiles.

Who makes this lovey pitcher, flower pot and watering can?
This beautiful pitcher , flower pot, and watering can was a gift from MacKenzie-Childs. It could not be more perfect for the space!

Despite not being finished I am so happy with the overall look and this chaallenge has taught me to try hard things! Can not wait to see it done and share.
