Happy summer weekend, friend!  I’m so happy you’re here! How was your week? It was a fun and busy week for us.  We wrapped up one shower on Sunday and then my entire family converged upon central Ohio for a second shower tomorrow.  Tomorrow’s shower is actually a couples BBQ at our house, so I’m excited for the relaxed atmosphere and laid back vibe.  I’m just hoping the rain holds off, but as anyone who lives in the midwest knows, there is literally no way to trust the weather forecast.  So we’ll be crossing our fingers and toes. We also have our first guests staying in our renovated guest suite this weekend (even though it’s not completely done!).

Here are some of my favorite little bits from around the web this week!

The List Week 28

No. 1 MODERN LIGHT – wall sconces are one of those things that I would put in every room if I had electrical boxes in the wall at my disposal. This chic and modern exposed bulb wall sconce style is really beautiful, is handcrafted and for being made with such attention to detail, it’s relatively inexpensive!

No. 2 COOL SOLUTION – These stoneware cheese boards are amazing for keeping cheese cool!  Just arrange your cheese, charcuterie or whathaveyou, then pop it all in the fridge until guests arrive.  The stoneware keeps everything at a nice and even temp.

No. 3 CAN’T GET ENOUGH – I just can’t stop with the bistro style pieces.  I love them.  I wanted these beauties for my kitchen renovation, but was trying to save some dough, so I didn’t splurge… but one day, one day, these black and white cafe stools will be nestled up to my island. What’s nestled up to your bar?

No. 4 PORTABLE STYLE – I bought my iPhone case the weekend the iPhone 6 came out, so there were all of NO choices available.  Two years later, I still haven’t upgraded.  A beautiful marble case for under $9 is the perfect solution.

No. 5 HOUSE WISE – Every time I travel to Europe I come back swearing to do ceramic or enamel house numbers.  These french enameled house numbers from Kaufman Mercantile are gorgeous.

No. 6 TEXTURE & TASSELS  – Such a cute pillow!  I love the textural pattern and this tassels.  It sure has a lot going for it!

Have a wonderful weekend out there!
