Random thoughts on a hot summer Saturday morning:

1. Y’all. It’s HOT here. It was 99 degrees yesterday and it’s going to be hotter today. I’ve lived here my whole life and I always forget how HOT it is in Texas.

And then?

Summer shows up.

2. I went to my first yard sale of the season yesterday. I have never been so happy in my whole life. I got blue and white dishes (that I’m using for a fun table this week) and these vintage menu holders and a silverware basket.

3. We are about half-way through the fence in the back yard. I think we are going to add string lights and the prettiest outdoor furniture that I’m painting.

4. Do any of you order from Stitch Fix? I’ve been ordering for about six months now and I LOVE IT. I think the key is finding a really good stylist. I went through a bunch of different stylists and now I found the best of the best of the best. I just got these amazing jeans that are petite and they pull on instead of buttoning—so basically they look like jeans and feel like sweat pants.

5. We are about to go get some ferns from one of my favorite people on the planet, my friend Mary Ann. She has extra ferns in her garden and she’s sharing.

6. This week on the blog we talked about DIY wall treatments and I showed you how to make an obelisk out of embroidery hoops and how to update a kitchen on a budget and discussed why I love payphones.

And now?

Let’s see all the fun stuff I found from around the internet.

This beautiful kitchen.

There are tons of summer styling ideas in this space.

I love the textures of the flowers together.

Love this idea to add art to your TV.

It’s a great way to make the TV disappear.
