My favorite personal thing this week is just being back in Dawsonville, GA. Roswelle and I flew down for a very quick trip to celebrate my soon-to-be-sister-in-law at her wedding shower this weekend. My mom had my favorite Chalk Full of Love coffee mug waiting for me which was such a nice surprise! Yesterday I was blogging at our kitchen table, with Roswelle being fed breakfast by her grandmother and great-grandmother and I had to snap the moment. It was a very good morning.
Spongeware may make you think of your grandmother's house but it is making a strong comeback. Tory Burch and Pottery Barn have both recently released a line of the spackled blue pattern pottery. So I was excited to find a set (pictured below) at our local little consignment shop, the Blue Barn. Now I need to figure out a way to make them fit in my checked bag back to Boston....
I spotted this simple idea at Star Provisions during lunch on Wednesday and I'll be bringing the idea home. Slice a lemon in half, add to fresh or sparkling water, close the cap, and let nature do the rest. You could stock your refrigerator ahead of time for a busy weekend or use this idea at an upcoming shower!
Tonight we are all going to Carson's first home high school football game of the season! We will be in our Dawson County Maroon + Gold as we cheer on the tigers - including Roswelle! I've been searching for a maroon bow over the past few days with no luck finding the right one. So after a trip to Michael's craft store, I made my first boutique bow! I watched this video over and over again until I got it right - she goes really slow and is extremely detailed in her instructions. I finally got it right and it is going to match her home-made jersey perfectly :) I'm sure you'll see live updates tonight on Instagram. Go Tigers and good luck Carson!!!
