The rain is following us where ever we go this summer. It poured while he was gone as I paced our room, crocheted and read. We actually stayed about 30 minutes outside of Indy in a rural but fancy pants area. The shopping next to our hotel had all the fancy brands except my favorite Pottery Barn.
Mind you, I rarely shop Pottery Barn, (unless I get a gift card...hint hint ;-) but the inspiration there is priceless. I actually keep their catalogs as reference material.
This also called for a major cleaning of the furnace area in the basement. To tell you the truth, I don't remember the last time I spent anytime cleaning in the space. Well, I paid the price! Cleaning, moving stuff, organizing. Lucky for me, the basement stays cool. It was a BIG job getting ready for
the demo and installation of our new system.
Ibbotson Heating Co. out of Arlington Heights, IL. We are very happy and cool and hopefully warm come Autumn.
Only a few of the Endless Summer.
Midwest Retro. I have another one to try and I have also used their Erasable Liquid Chalk. What a great shop and it's pretty close to home. My blogging friend Joy from Savvy City Farmer does all the staging at the shop. Inspirational, the shop and Joy!
The scoop is from Hob Lob and the Freedom Ring book I found at the thrift just this weekend.
These are the invitations to our Rehearsal Dinner up North. I found the vintage map of the UP and though my printer died, my dearest helped me out and we got it done together.
We are staying close to home for the holiday and hope that we have some company. Until next tine, thanks for stopping by and for your friendship. Please be safe and have a Happy Independence Day.
Enjoy this beautiful day,
