Getting Inspired

Last week's weather was a drippingly delightful humid high 80s to low 90s... this week's forecast predicts high 60s to low 70s.  Color me confused.  While I appreciate cooler weather for more landscaping, this is extreme even for New England.  I might try and hold on to this summer kicking and screaming as long as I can.  I feel like the past few weeks has been an entire summer squeezed into 3 weeks and while it was fun, I'm pooped.  I have a super awesome house crash post to show you Wednesday, but today, I'm afraid to say, I had no planned post.  So instead of me inexplicably disappearing for a day, I'll share a few of my favorite things around blogland lately because the awesomeness is too good not to share. 1.  Um, guys, have you seen Mandi's $80 geometric wood floor??  Can I rip up every floor in my home and the flip and do this?  That would be reasonable, right?


2.  This art in a little girls room or play room would be so adorable without crossing the too cutesy line.  They have a habit of nailing it like that on A Beautiful Mess.


3.  If you're looking for inspiration for a room and haven't yet seen Emily Henderson's Materials Girl series, RUN, don't walk over to her blog and swoon over the amazingly pulled-together goodness.  She makes it look so easy.

If I don't bury myself in weeds before then, I'll be back on Wednesday with the house crash of a charming antique cape.  See you then!!
