Happy Friday and happy August to everyone! I can’t believe it’s already almost the end of summer…it has just flown by. This month’s favorites are on the blog today:
One of my go-to perfumes is by Marc Jacobs (actually I use two of his Daisy perfumes). I picked this one up on the way back from London the last time the hubby and I went. To me, it smells like summer and I love the cute little bottle on my dresser. As for my favorite resource this month, I’m really loving The Nester‘s book. I’ve been a follower of her blog for some time and have always loved her design sense. I adore her motto: “it doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful” and she talks a lot about not waiting for the perfect time or house to make your home feel like you, so important. I think it’s a great read. This summer (usually every summer after Lake Powell) the otter pops are in full force in the Owens household and this summer is no exception. We’ve taken many an Otter Pop break while painting the fence out in the hot sun this season. While working on my girlie’s room makeover I was looking for a few really great personal items for her room and came across this etsy store for the Pottery Lodge. This little aqua whale was just perfect for her dresser and I can’t wait to get to finishing up her room…posts to come on that one. My last item this month is for fashion…a chair?? Yes. This is one of my all time favorite chairs and we have two of them in our living room (we have blue, I really was tempted on the orange but in the end decided that the blue was a better long term purchase) and I love them. My living room is still a work in progress but some of my very favorite pieces are in that room.
