Living My Real Life

It's Saturday so today I'm going to share some random thoughts and updates of what’s been going on in my life.

Jenna is moving today. For the last year she’s been living in the house next door to us.  It has been lovely to have her there, especially during lockdown, but now it’s time she moves on. She was trying to purchase a house, but the market is going crazy right now so, instead, she’s decided to rent.  

We are just putting the finishing touches on our kitchen – literally – we have hinges to put on two doors and then I can show you.  I’m so excited to reveal my new kitchen you next week!

On the Blog this Week

I received a wonderful unexpected gift this week.

I also shared a tutorial for these wonderful Long Iridescent Drop Earrings.

If you have a special event or just love cake (like me!), you could make this amazing Lemon Curd Layer Cake I made last week.  It’s gluten free and honestly, no-one will know. It's got amazing texture which is often so lacking with gluten free cake.

Around the Web This Week

Things I’ve found around the web this week that I’d like to share with you:

I fell in love with these floor stickers. Who needs tile when you can make your floor look like this with some stickers!

I hate to tell you this, but Christmas is just around the corner and the blogishpere is starting to heat up with Christmas ideas.  I particularly liked this snowflake made with clothes pegs (or pins). Isn’t it a cute project?

Of course, before we get to Christmas, we need to get through Halloween.  I’ll be sharing our decorations next week (it’s going to a busy one) but in the meantime, I really liked Juliet’s less is more approach to fall decorating.

And One More for the Road

With summer coming along in my neck of the woods, I thought I’d share this amazing deck that I’ve been drooling over for the longest time, wondering how I can recreate this with the 1.5m wide deck I have.

You’ve just gotta check out this amazing deck from the Inspired Room.

I want to spend my summers here.

Feel free to leave me your comments about any of the things I’ve shared below.

Happy Saturday – have a great weekend.
