I remember the first blog I ever started following. It was years ago, and I really didn’t even know that home decor blogs even existed. I would visit this particular blog almost daily and waited ever so
impatiently for new posts so I could take a peek into her beautiful home. I was so nosy when it came to seeing how people decorated, so someone openly sharing theirs with me felt almost like a secret that nobody else knew about. Her blog played a huge role in why I started Little Glass Jar. I wanted to document how we are turning our house into a place we are proud to call home, and if people want to follow along, that just makes the experience even better!
It’s officially summertime!!! To me, that means watermelon, concerts outside, county fairs, flip flops, lightening bugs, sprinklers, barbecues, I could go on and on. It’s already insanely hot here in St. Louis, but I am just going with it! Summer hasn’t always been my favorite time of the year, we all know my complete obsession with fall, and that will never change. However, it’s feeling pretty go so far this year. Fourth of July is right around the corner and I am SO looking forward to a nice long extended weekend with lots of family time. Until then, I figured I would deck out the house in red, white and blue Vintage Fourth of July Decor, because for some reason patriotic looks good on farmhouse decor. There is just something about the two that just go together.
Did you want to take a peek at my latest happy mail from Gable Lane Crates? Oh, you do? I mean, I guess I could show you what’s inside. Well really, I would love to show you! This months crate theme that showed up at my doorstep is themed Romantic Bedroom, and it is filled with whimsical decor that you can add to your bedroom for a little feminine touch. Sometimes that’s exactly what you need when you get done with a long day. A cute little spot that is relaxing and romantic! These goodies matched well with my white linens and pillows, but still had the slight vintage vibe that I love. [If you missed my first two crates, Mixed Metals and Sow & Gather you can take a look inside those here and here.]
Happy Monday, friends! I can’t think of a better way to kick off the week than by teaming up with Home Depot and 24 other amazing bloggers on an awesome do-it-herself project! Each one of us is sharing how we customized this little Beverage Station and we want you to make one too! If you caught my save-the-date post last week about the #DIHWorkshop, then by now you are all signed up to take part in making one yourself at your local Home Depot today, right!? I hope so, because these are super cute and you don’t want to miss out on all the fun! It was so nice to be able to build this project all on my own with no help from my husband! I would say it was a success!
I have a special surprise for you guys! If you are not familiar with Wood Watches by JORD, then allow me to introduce you! I first heard about these stunning pieces on Instagram when a few of my fellow blogger friends posted their gorgeous pictures of them. It was pretty much love at first sight! You know as a blogger how much I love working with wood, and staining it to bring out the true beauty of the wood grain is my favorite part. These watches remind me so much of my love for a good DIY project like that. And I am not exaggerating when I tell you they are stunning in person.
Mondays are for fun announcements right? Well, I am super excited to let you know I am teaming up with The Home Depot on another Do-It-Herself Virtual Workshop! Thanks again to my good friend Kelly from Live Laugh Rowe for inviting me to join in on the fun! Mark your calendar for Monday June 16th, 2016 and join us! The June DIH project is a super cute Beverage Station that you can customize and add your own personality to. It’s the perfect project to kick off summer and provide a spot to grab drinks from on all the hot days ahead. I know here in St. Louis the humidity can get unbearable, so this will be convenient to have around! And boy do I have some cute ideas to give it a little character!
