We paid a visit to our favorite pumpkin lady, Lynne Bonnell, the other day and picked up some new pumpkins for the season. Can you believe its that time already? They always go fast, so hurry in to pick out your favorite ones!
Ok, so for one day only, we decided we were going to put the entire sale room on "extra" sale for 75% off. Only one day. And that day just happens to be tomorrow, August 31. I fully intended to take pictures of all the new stuff that was just unloaded in the sale room, but as that didn't happen, you will just have to get down here to see for yourself. So, let's go over that one more time. Tomorrow, Wednesday, August 31, the entire sale room will be 75% off. That's pretty fantastic. I am sure we will be seeing lots of you tomorrow!
Have you seen these amazing bags and pillows made from actual coffee bean bags from local designer Rock N Couture? We are getting a bunch at the Willows and are so excited about them! You must come have a peek!
Boy, am I ready for the weekend. We are having a little going away birthday party for my son Alex today, as he is leaving to go back to college tomorrow. Other than that I am hoping to spend some time just relaxing around the house. Hope you have something fun planned!
Our very own Kim from the Willows just went through a major remodel at her house and she, ever so generously, let us come snap some pictures of the amazing job they did! If you look at the before pictures, you will see they moved back the middle wall of the house (where the stove and refrigerator used to be) separating the kitchen from the now-dining room, to make the kitchen bigger and the dining room slightly narrower. They put in new doors and windows, new floors and a completely new kitchen. We think it looks absolutely amazing, Kim! You certainly have an eye for design! No wonder you work at the Willows... (heehee).
Kim even let us sneak a quick peek into her daughter's lovely room, which is full of treasures from the Willows...
Kim, thanks so much for sharing your amazing home with us!
What do you think, everyone? Do you love it as much as we do?
I just uploaded these pictures from my other camera and it reminded me how much I miss the summer. Not actual summer, as it has been unbearably hot these last few days and, certainly, it is still technically summer. But the summer that brings with it long days at the beach, family all together and no schedule of school and sports and work. It will be a while until we are all together again, but we have great memories to tide us over until then...
And, now, since we don't have the glorious beach weather and the relaxing days to surround us, I would like to ask Phoenix to say goodbye to summer and bring on the fall. I can't take this heat anymore!
