Welcome to my Mitten Moments!

Random moments from my week that I am sharing with YOU!

Won’t you come on in? The door is open!

1) I don’t know about the weather where you are, but we have had a ton of rain over the last week or two. Rain is good for the flowers and garden but not so good for my motivation!!

Can any of you relate?

2) Do you celebrate Christmas in July?

What I really mean is do you decorate? Craft for Christmas? Are you already dreaming of a white Christmas?

I have to admit, although I am still loving our warm summertime weather, it’s been fun looking back on Christmas this past week. Therefore, in honor of Christmas in July, I decided to share one of my Christmas posts from last year on How To Make A Footed Tray.

I hope you had a chance to read it and you were inspired to make your own.

Certainly, using power tools aren’t as scary as they may seem! Right?

3) Do you love a good magazine?

Over the last week, I have read a ton. My current favs?

Drumroll please…..

They are the Best of French Country Home & Living, and Cottages and Bungalows.

So many pretty decor things! From beautiful chandeliers, printed drapes, floral wallpaper, stylish table settings and amazing coastal scenes!

In other words, it’s all eye candy to me.

4) Last but not least, have you been watching the Olympics this week? I just love the swimming/diving, and synchronized swimming. Yes, synchronized swimming! It’s a hard sport people!

I bet you didn’t know I was a synchronized swimmer back in junior high. Hence, why I have so much respect for those who compete.

You learn something new everyday!


Here are some other WONDERFUL moments, I found this week:

The sweetest story you’ll read all week.

This romantic table for two.

This refreshing watermelon lemonade with mint.

These beautiful toile recovered chairs.

These 7 tips to upcycle a chair.

This yummy summer tortellini salad.

I hope you enjoyed my Mitten Moments, this Saturday! Hoping that all the moments of your day bring you more joy than you could imagine!
