4 Things.

Hello, faithful readers.  I've missed posting for the last few weeks.  I hope to be able to get back on schedule.  I really try to be present in the moment, but lately I have felt like time is really getting away from me. Memorial Day has come and gone.  And with that, the unofficial start of Summer!  Whew.  Where has the time gone?  Although summer is my favorite season. 
-Have you heard about the Brimfield Antique Show?  I've read a lot about it and hope go some day!  It's in Massachusetts, so not the most convinent location....  But looks amazing!  It's the largest outdoor antique show/flea market in the world!!  About an hour from Boston.  The next show is in July...
-We are all reeling from the news of the catastrophic tornado that recently hit Moore, OK.  I grew up in the midwest and have taken cover in my basement more times than I can count.  Scary stuff.  If you're interested in helping, here are a few places!
-Now that it's almost summer, here are 15 classic summer cocktail recipes.
-If you'll looking for something a little different to grill, how about this recipe for a Grilled Sweet and Spicy Shrimp Pizza?

4 Things

After what felt like a cold and rainy week, I'm looking forward to some warmth and sunshine this weekend!

And in honor of Mother's Day this Sunday, I enjoyed this post from Pretty Prudent, where a few bloggers share their best advice they've given their daughters.  My favorite is from Ashley and her blog Lil Blue Boo who shares "Make good choices. And if you happen to make a bad one: take responsibility. If you make things right, you don’t have to feel bad about it anymore. You release it: *poof* and then you are free to be and do your best."

I'm considering investing in a dremel tool, just so I can make these sunglasses.
I love this idea for Silver Leaf Art.
This may be the perfect tote tutorial.  You can't have too many of them.
Need a new table cloth for Spring and Summer?  How about a Polka Dot one?

4 Things.

-I'm going to give these Braided Bead and Hemp Bracelets from Happy Hour Projects a try soon. 
-Intending on a little Cinco de Mayo celebration, but want to keep it low fat?  How about Turkey Taco Lettuce Wraps?  (from SkinnyTaste.)
 -And speaking of Cinco de Mayo, have you tried the Pioneer Women's Restaurant Style Salsa
-If you're looking for a fun summer project, or perhaps a Mother's Day gift (right around the corner, May 12th!!), how about this Fruit Welcome Mat? From The House that Lars Built.
